    I seem to have a bit of a problem with people insta-killing my HQ units. Having to use the Vanilla rules (custom chapter) means all my HQ choices have a toughness of 4, whereas all the HQ I am up against seem to have 5 or more :/

    Any ideas what I can do to stop this? I've used Iron Halo, and taken a retinue with me at times, but it always seems that my Force Commander with 3 Wounds doesn't get to use them...

    Mounting him on a bike can help lower the amount of successful wounds inflicted.
    I like chaplains for their lower cost and free 4+ Inv. and power weapon. (since they have only 2 wounds, I would take 2 of them) Both bikes and Jump Packs help get them into CC sooner where Insta-Kills are less likely (in most cases), and their 4 or more attacks kick ass...... :rolleyes:

    Hope that helps.....

    Mmm, bikes, not bad, forgot they gave +1 Toughness...

    Any other ideas? i.e Wargear? I've got some really nice HQ models, and I don't wanna get rid of them...

    I cant think of any wargear, other then the bike, that would raise toughness. But suppossably (??) GW is releasing a new SM codex which might have something.

    Also, it is too bad you are using your own chapter because the Sons of Anteaus chapter has a special rule where everybody has +1 toughness for very few points per model.

    Although the bike adds +1 toughness, The toughness in regards to insta kills for a SM character is still 4.

    How is your Commander getting Insta killed with a retinue?

    If you are really having a problem with him getting fragged, don't put him in the front of the army where everyone and their mother can shoot him. Put a couple of squads in front of him... Then they have to go through the other squads to get to him.

    Wargear that adds toughness isn't counted for 2xt strength weapons. Exceptions to this rule apply, and are listed in the codexes/FAQs.

    It's usually the spooky Chaos HtH weapons that get me killed all the time, *****es me off.

    I don't usually give my commander a retinue, but I'll play around with it a bit. I usually prefer to spend my points elsewhere. Will see what I can do.

    Thanks for the advice guys
