    No. He can lead a command squad. He cannot be attached to a squad, that is only for Chaplains and Librarians. He can join a squad (which may be a veteran squad) during deployment, or in a movement phase.

    If he leads a command squad, he cannot leave it, so he could not then join a veteran squad.

    Why wouldnt the librarian just be attached to the veterans in the first place. The command squad you purhcase for your hero remains with the hero. Once the command squad all dies, he reverts to being an independent character and can attach to whatever squad you want. And whats this with you wanting to attach squads together? Well whatever your trying to do, it wouldnt work.

    This is wrong on so many levels.
    1. You can't attach commanders to any command squads. They can lead them, but can't be attached to a Chaplain's or Librarian's.
    2. The Librarian would not be able to leave the squad to join the veterans.
    3. You can't "splice" two squads togather by saying that the commander is leading both of them at the same time.
    I suggest you re-read the codex, particularly page 21, Space Marine Characters, points 2 and 3.

    Hey Corianis, why cant commanders attach themselves to another characters command squad? i was pretty sure that if he has a librarian with a command squad, if he really wanted to, he could attach the commander during play. Where it says that librarians and chaplains can attach themselves to the commanders command squad, its only if you want it to count as 1 HQ slot. i believe commanders can attach themselves to another characters command squad except the commander will take one of the HQ slots.

    Joining during play isn't being attached to. A commander can join a reclusium/librarium command squad, but that is not being attached to it.
    Attaching characters to squads means that the squad and character(s) all count as one FO slot, and also that they cannot be broken up during the game. Joining is completely separate to this.
