I've never gotten this straight. Familiars are in the magic items section, so I'd think you could only have one of each type per army. But I've seen lists with multiple sorcerers using the same familiars. Is this legal?
Yeah only one right...
It's a magic item...(and not a power stone or scroll).
People break the magic items rules all the time, just look in the army list section, a lot of people give heroes 2 magic armours or give multiple duplicate magic banners (I saw one recently where the guy had 4 banners of wrath).
Is it something people don't mind then?
LOL, Scenario time. Orcs and gobbos have a banner that gives them a rank bonus amount of dispel dice, if they gave it to all there units they would have 12-18 dispel dice at 2000 points. which is ridiculous...
Do not take duplicates of an item.
If you don't mind I have a follow-up question.
Many people here have uses the power familiar on a support sorcerer, and gives the power dice to a lvl 4 sorc. THe item description is stated like this: "The familiar adds one power dice to its owner's pool during each friendly Magic phase." It sounds like it adds a power dice to it's OWNERs pool during each phase. To me it seems rather strange (fluff-wise and game-wise) that it adds a die to the main power dice pool.
But maybe I'm wrong?
It adds to the owners power dice not the shared dice pool. It's very clear in the description.
It is a common mistake to take duplicates of magic items...however the rulebook is very clear and it's not that hard a rule to follow...
