    Heavy Weapons Squad

    Looking at my codex, I can't tell if I can just take 3 Heavy Weapons Teams as a single troop choice or if I have to set up a platoon to take them. Can I take them as a single troops choice?

    In order to take heavy weapon squads for the troops platoon which has to have 1 command squad and 2 infantry squads before you can even take any weapon teams.

    It says at the very top of the first troop page about how many squads you can have for a platoon page 96 of that guard codex.

    It's right there in the codex. All units on that page (conscripts, special weapons squads, heavy weapons squads and infantry squads) must be taken as part of a platoon. So when your platoon have 1 PCS and 2 Platoon Infanry Squads you can begin to take heavy weapons squads and the like.

    It doesn't say whether or not you have to take them in a platoon, but thank you. I just haven't collected Guard since 3rd when Heavy Weapons were Heavy Support choices in their own right.

    My codex says that the HWS, Special Weapon squad, and Conscripts squads can't be taken alone. You have to purchase them in addition to a platoon to field them.
    Where the heck did all them guardsmen come from?

    Great Wolf! Is that the howl of the 13th?
