Hey there im a newbie space marine player and was wondering wether it was possible to attach both a chaplain and a captain to one assault squad. Can I do this or do I have to choose between one or the other to be in charge of that squad. I know this is probably a really dumb question but your help would be massively appreciated.
This will be a big in points for this squad which isn't good assuming assault squads want to get in close combat otherwise they are usless. Unless you want to use them as a distraction but this will be to many points to be used as a distraction. Many times I only do one character to a squad because all the fire then won't be shot at them or most of it. Because if I was versing you I wouldn't let that squad get to me at all.
Nice one thats great help. maybe i should attach each character to an individual squad and then there would be more targets to shoot at. On another note I am trying to build up my space marine captain.
Space marine master
As you can see I am well over the 100 point limit on wargear. Which would be the best choice of these items. Sorry for not creating a new thread but I though it was linked and didnt really need a new topic to be created.Thanks very much for youer help with the last question. Now i just need to know how to kit this baby up.:yes:

Since he will be with a chaplain AND an assault squad (which should be 8 - 10 strong with a powerfist on the sarge by the way) he will not need to be tooled up very much because that squad will be so devestating anyway.
Therefore I would give him just the lightning claws, jump pack and frag grenades, maybe with the iron halo. With the iron halo this chapter master will come out at 151 points. This squad with the two independat charchters is going to be very expensive so i would just give the chaplain a bolt pistol, frag grenades and a jump pack. He already has a 4+ invulnerable save and with the re-rolls he gives you will not need to worry about any units standing up to the charge of this unit !!
what if i were to take 2 seperate assault squads with the chaplain leading one and the commander leading the other. Would you suggest I equip him the same?
If you take two assault squads then i would just definately give him the iron halo to ensure his survival-although if you have the points then an admantine and combat shield might be better so that he is protected againts insta-kill from power fists and the like but still gets the invulnerable save (although not as good, but a 5+ is better than nothing).
So are termi hons a waste of points for my commander? I know he can already dish out a lot of attacks so would these points be better spent elsewhere. Its so hard to decide what to equip him with. Would it be better to make him a captain instead of a commander as this would leave 15 points to get the termi hons.Sorrry for going on a bit.
Thanks very much I have removed the points costs. I didnt realise i wasn't supposed to put them on. All your help has been great.Cheers.
