I have a question: the doctarine spacefies that any infantry squad may take a sniper rifle as a HW. Command squads may also have a Hw. does it means I can give my command squad a sniper? and if I do, is only one guardsman count as holding the gun, or do I need two like a normal HW? It's inportent for me to know because I want to upgrade as many guardsmen in the squad as possible to vets.
Its all on page 57 of the Codex, the 3rd bullet under Light Infantry.
"May, if they are a normal Infantry Platoon squad that could normally include a heavy weapon team but chooses not to, upgrade a single guardsman's lasgun to a sniper rifle at *pts"
So no, your Command squads cant have sniper rifles and it isnt a "sniper rifle team" its just a single guardman with a sniper rifle.
On a side note, a single sniper rifle in a squad isnt all that good, I'm much rather have a heavy bolter and leave the sniping up to ratlings.
agreed, sniper rifles arent that impressive unfortunately
