I just want to know why GW doesn't allow for BA Honour guards to take Techmarines? ANd also did they substitute a unit in instead? Becuase I'm thinking of buying an honour gaurd, but with no techmarine and no company champaions like other command squads, is it really worth getting an honour gaurd for my Sanguinary High Priest?

Honor guards are defiantly a good potion for a jumping commander. With the ability to pack in allot of power weapons they quickly become a formidable assault unit.
As far as "getting" an honor guard I'm assuming you want to buy the Honor Guard box. you could easily buy the standard command squad box and a set of jump packs for them to convert your own unit. Or just go with the BA box and not use the tech marine. Its up to personnel preference really.
techmarines are elite choices now, and you a champion takes its place. I dont know how that affects BA lists. Have you read the 4th editon FAQ?

-I am not inteded to die like this!
-Then you were misinformed
they later make a raft of dead bodies and drift to shore
Um well it technically you are able to because it doesnt say anything in the FAQ about not being able to take techmarines in a HG.But as you know you cannont give him a servo harness if he is equiped with a jump pack.
So yeah i think you still can take them in your honour guard as nothing has been said otherwise.
yeah in the Blood Angels FAQ V4.1 you cannot take a techmarine in an honor guard. It also states that other characters may not join another characters honor guard. (like taking a chaplain in a Force commanders body guard.)
Yep it sure does.Sorry i didnt see it before but yeah now it does say it.They count just the same as SM now.They follow the same profile and are Elites.
Once again Blood Angels are given the shaft......*Sigh* Oh well, the model makes a sick looking veteran marine. Thanks for the help guys:tongue:

Out of humor... i'd like to see you explain to me how exactly blood angels get the shaft? I ask this mainly as i play against them frequently, and i am fortunate enough to have a good friend that we play one game with our own list, and then switch. We've found we can both win with his blood angels, and both win with my Iron Warriors

Ba gets the shaft becuase they took out all our good rules. Overcharged engines now suck, our chaplains cost 110pts more, they take techamrines out of our honour gaurd but dont give us new box sets. And I'm not saying its all "shaft" to BA. The white scars havent had new units in ages. I say forget about Black Templars and replace some of the older chapters outdated stuff then introduce some new stuff.

The only armys getting the shaft are Space Wolves, Orcs and Eldar right now. Heck the orcs weapons don't even excist in the new rule book.
Our chaplains are 110 points more cause "they come with 3+D3 death company" that actualy realy cheap for that many assault guys with necron'istic abilitys ^_^
They don't need to make BAs a new box set of any thing yet, it's still all pretty new. Besides whats stoping us from useing all the other new models, I know I do
Tomb Kings, Marines, Eldar
