    In the Escalation special rule it states that only "basic infantry" may start the game on the table. Who does this include in IG? The Guard codex has a nice description of who infantry is and who isn't, but is that what they are referring to? If they only mean basic guardsmen, and I play with Grenadiers, I'm likely not to have any! Anyone have any insight?

    Welcome, prey species!

    "Existing Unit Types"

    Big Grey Book page 264

    Battle For Macragge page 87

    When looking for unit definitions in regards to 4thEd rules, these pages will (or at least should) provide the answer. (Y)

    for what i understand, it's troops choices that don't ride in a transport. everything else is reserves.

    Yeah, this is excellent! TY Angel of Rust!

    if you have the BGB the answer is pretty clear. but if you don't, i'll tell you



    omega missions have escalastion. escalation means that if you're not on foot, you start in reserve.


    anything but infantry starts in reserve. now the question is "what is infantry".

    the answer, anything that is not: bike, jet bike, beast, calvary, monster, vehicle, jump/jet pack, walker.

    [note]Sentinels DO start on the board because of their "Scout" rule.

    i know what you were thinking "the IG dex says that guard infantry is blah blah" but think bigger, do other codexi define infantry? no.


    again, infantry is defined in the BGB.



    so what does this mean for guard?

    simply, (unless you're mechanized), ALL YOUR GUYS START ON THE BOARD!!

    command squad, HWsquads, infantry platoons, grenadiers, vets, etc etc all start on the board (unless you wanna DS them).

    and this is why, infantry based IG, kicks ass in escalation.
