Hi guys can you help me out with this one:
The SM codex states that an honour guard could replace any space marine in a tactical squad or devestator...so can i replace a normal marine only or could i replace the sarjent of the suad as well for an honour guard?
Do not underestimate the power of the dark side...its stronger than any cheese!!
you replace the serg. with it but it's better to just use normal serg. and not switch because they have bolters not pistols
I don't see where it says that you have to replace the serg. As far as I can see you can have the serg as well as an HG in the squads, thats part of why their so good. They come in pretty cheap for what you get too.

I have a 10 man drop pod tactical squad. One guy has a melta gun, The Sergeant has a Power Fist and Bolt Pistol and One guy is a Honour Guard. I like them cause they give Ultramarines something to call there own
Me too! same squad, same reason! This weekend I'm taking TWO tactical squads each with an axe wielding Honor Guard to a tourney...Originally Posted by Squeaks
Obviously I agree that it does not say you have to replace the sergeant. I keep the sergeant and replace "a Space Marine."
Once a Marine, always a Marine.
Any marine in the squad may be replaced by the honour guard. Remember though, you must pay for the basic marine and then basically "upgrade" him to an honor guard for the point cost listed.
Expensive, but it gives ultramarines more close combat punch in their squads.

Efficiency VS Point Cost VS Ease Of Use - Your best bets:
1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant
2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers
3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC
