    Support Squad Question

    I have a question regarding the point costs for a Fire Support Squad. The squad costs x points and the codex has y points for a heavy bolter. Does that mean the unit costs x + y or x + 3y? I used variables because I know its against the rules to print actual point values, I hope it is not too confusing. Thanks.

    x + 3y for the 1 squad, plus the 3 weapons. I think that some of the weapons are more expensive when you're giving them to the support squads, but that is because of the benefit of getting multiple ones in a squad. Supposedly.
    Armies:
    Tyranids: 2500 pts
    Imperial Guard: 1000 pts
    Witch Hunters: 1000 pts

    Thanks for the quick response. Does that I mean I can have both Heavy Bolters and Autocannons in the same fire support squad?

    But only 3 heavy weapons total, not three of each

    The cost is X for the squad of six guardsmen, plus 3Y for the weapons.
    98% of the teenage population does or has tried smoking pot.
    The other 2% are smart enough to question the 'science' behind that number...
    And it's spelled EMPEROR!
