P. 48 WH40k RulebookSee, But Remain Unseen: Shrike (and the models in his squad)...
So if Shrike joins a unit before the game they are treated as the models in his squad, if your chaplain also joins the unit he will be a part of the squad and so will be able to benefit from Shrike's ability.Alternatively an indipendant character may begin the game already with a unit, by being deployed in coherency with them.
Yes but it does say Shrikes unit and any other characters in the unit will be a part of the unit, so the other player would have no argument, it would just be an unprepared opponent complaining and whining until he gets what he wants.I must stress, your opponent MAY argue that Shrike cannot infiltrate another HQ unit simply because it doesn't say 'and other independent characters' in Shrikes Infiltrate rule.
Indeed.So if Shrike is an independent character, and the chaplain is too. Can you deploy 2 HQ's in a single squad? Else, yeah that Shrike ability with some assault marines seems BRUTAL!!!
