    HQ Command Squad Question

    Here is a really stupid question. I haven't played much 40k and to be honest no 4th ed games (I mainly paint). I almost have a functioning space marine army but I had a point cost question.

    Lets say you upgrade one of your command squad to a company champion and there is a price to do so. Do you also have to pay for all the equipment he is supposed to have on top of that initial add on to the base troop cost? It says "One model may be upgraded to Company Champion armed with a power weapon, combat shield and bolt pistol at +x points. So it suggests to you getting the weapons at that point cost - I just wanted to make sure.

    Pretty dumb question but if you could be so kind as to answer that would be great.

    Cheers,

    -Mike

    Yes, the points cost for specialist upgrades include their new gear.

    Ya, he doesn't need to pay fopr the equipment again, its covered by the upgrade cost. Funny story though, specifically referring to the champion he actually costs more than the collective cost of his wargear which totals about 15 points(more if you count the BP...) but he actually costs more than that to upgrade.

    Maybe the status also takes some pts.
    Although the company banner seems like it WOULD cost 25pts, I don't know about the Narthecium/Reductor.

    You Pay 15 pts for each model say 5 = 75

    There you have a command squad

    You can then upgrade models as you said the champion for example at about 30pts
    (not sure exactly how many pts not got my codex at work)

    Company Champion ARMED WITH a power weapon, combat shield and bolt pistol.
    Therefore bringing the cost of the squad up to 105pts

    Where it says about being able to select equipment from the armoury, thats when you have to pay for everything seperately.
    One is not to question why, but to do and die.
