Welcome to Librarium Online!
It doesn't state in the codex how many Tyrant Guard you can have in an army. I wanted to know if there was a limit. I was thinking of making a Godzilla army, and wanted each TMC to have one Tyrant Guard.
if you read very closely in the tyrant's description you'll notice that it says it can take a retinue of 1-3 of them, so only walking tyrants can take em.
If you read over the entry for the Hive Tyrant, you'll see that they have an entry that states they may take a retinue of Tyrant Guard. No other unit entry has this option.
Next, if you read the Tyrant Guard unit entry, you'll see that they specifically mention what unit may have Tyrant Guard and up to how many he may have.
In a Godzilla list the most that you could run is two Tyrants, each with three Guards.
But in the Chapter Aprroved, it says that the Guards could join the Carnifexes. Could I start the Guards on the Hive Tyrant, then slide them over to the fexes?
the CA article means nothing as it was printed for the 3rd edition codex not the 4th edition codex.
Yep, sorry. Looks like I have my hands on a 3rd Edition CA. Thanks guys.

I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
I think it mentions in the 4th ed codex (at work and can't double-check) that tyrant guards can be joined by other TMCs, but can never be joined to more then 1 TMC at a time, and also stated that the tyrant could leave the guards. So you could buy them with a Tyrant, then during play move them to guard a fex instead if you like. Like when a regen fex needs a shield to buy time to actually regen.Originally Posted by drexelshafter
No you can't, the tyrant is bought as a retinue for the Tyrant, it can never leave it's retinue, also MC can't join or leave units.
