    by the wya i did a quick search....

    anyways do support platforms include 2 guardians...for example for +50 points do i get a starcannon AND 2 guardians (for free)?

    I think so because "the heavy weapon platform has two guardians as crew" as it says in the book.

    By the way dont know if this is relevant but here is my reasoning:

    a car has 4 wheels, so when you buy a car for X dollars it comes with 4 wheels, and you also expect that you dont have to pay extra for them. Usually the price of wheels is included in the cost of the car.

    Yes you get those 2 men because it are the gunner and loaders of the platform.
    So if you got a squad of 8 normal guardians and you ad one platform that means you will have a 10 man squad and 1 heavy weapon in it. But if you let the gunner and loader die instead of the guardians then the platform will be useles. (So if some1 mindwars the gunners your platform is useles aight?) Hope this answers your question.


    However with that statement out of the way, I would say listen to ArchonBjorn. He has a really good tendency to not say stupid things and give bad advice.

    I think it does from what I am reading on Page 16 of the Codex. I think anything that

    requires a crew has the crew included in the box.

    Erm, no. For 50 points you get a move-and-fire Bright Lance/Starcannon and 2 crew.
    You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.

    If you substract the crew cost its -16 of the 50 meaning a platform actually costs 34 points. That aint so expensive dont you agree?

    You pay 50 pts for 2 crew and a weapon, that's hardly free and I don't see what the issue is honestly

    Thats like saying you pay 30pts for a lascannon and a "Free" marine

    You don't get two free guardians, unless you don't fire the platform and then why did you buy the support platform?
