YOU get the guardsmen for free
the codex saysThe 4 gaurdsmen have been included in the price of the Junior Ofiicer
Guardsmen for free, IMO.Originally Posted by onlainari
For example, in the Troops section; they list the whole squad as costing X pts + weapons + upgrades.
Then, in the profile for Sergeants and Guardsmen alike, the pts listing is "--" .. so, they're technically "free."
librarian Augustine, that quote from the codex makes it sound like the guardsmen are not free. That quote makes it sound like the guardsmen actually cost points, and are not free, it's just that their cost has been included with the cost of the Junior Officer, which totals 40pts.
Does that make sense? Sorry for the funny question btw, I would still like more opinions please.
I believe they are free, but then it can be your own interpretation. :tongue: I mean, you could think that the Guardsmen are worth nothing so you dont have to pay, meaning you only pay for a JO, or you can think of it in a way that the JO isn't worth as much as 40pts thus making Guardsmen worth something more than nothing.
for starters, why does it matter how you get the squad, you'll be paying 40 points no matter what. i don't have my rule book handy, but doesn't it state that a junior officer is a 16 point brute leader under the kill team section? i don't remember if it says that or not, but i remember hearing it from some where. anyways, it doesn't matter if it says this or not, cause you'll be paying 40 points for the squad anyways.
True, but there is always room for interpretation! :w00t:
