Ok so i'm a little confused about orders i haven't read the whole codex yet or maybe i just missed it, but when can you use orders and it says if this order passes you can do blah blah blah, what does that mean do you have to roll or something, please help me.
We who have seen war will never stop seeing it....In the silence of the night, we will always hear the screams....
Page 29 of the Codex, the big box labelled "Imperial Guard Orders." Spells everything out quite well, and saves us having to explain it.
"I would listen to Sokhar. The man's a genius. Listen."~Lord Yossanrion"Thanks, Sokhar. There was some legitimately good advice in between the low-grade profanity, blaspheming and veiled insults."~Quick"Well thought, intelligently put, with a hint of sarcastic bastard!"~Diggum's Hammer
While we're on the subject, none of the IG players around here have really bothered to read the orders that well before "trying out a new list". We have every squad using "First Rank, Second Rank" to add shots to heavy weapons, Leman Russ Squadrons using "bring it down", and people trying to use "incoming" in their opponent's turn. I have to bookmark the friggin page in the codex.
Has anyone else had this problem?
Blais's Paint Studio-Getting broken armies good soft scores since 2009
By the way, do the orders rules affect vehicles?

I haven't had problems yet in my FLGS or my local GW....the problem that I'm having is that some people simply think I'm making up the orders so I have to show them the dex and get them to actually read it which typically takes some time.

I have heard no problems at my store but I am the only guard player to use the rules in a normal game,but the extra shots order has cursed me with bad luck .

Story about orders...
Thought I would post it hear since it doesn't merit a new thread.
I got an early copy of the Codex and played a game a few weeks ago.
After bigging up orders I managed to roll an 'incompetent command' for my first roll...
