Yes it does. Because you use an officer's leadership for both things.:yes:

Well, I just checked the FAQ. You can't use Iron Disipline down a vox link. Damn....

Assume if they're out of the 12 inch range, they cannot see their officer clearly.

Considering that Human Beings are highly visual (as in, compared to sight, the other four senses get bugger all of a look in) creatures. If they can't see their officer, they don't feel so inspired to fight on. It's for the same reason that if you can only hear of a horror movie is dialogue and not see the visuals, it isn't scary is it. (unless you're a pussy like me :wacko: ).

Same reason Officers and Commissars and Space Marine Chapter Masters are usually without a helmet. Their faces are far more expressive and awe inspiring than a simple helmet is. Which is why if I ever buy the new Shas'o Shadowsun model, I'll be using the unhelmeted head.

Battle of Hastings, William of Normandy is knocked from his horse and his soldiers believe him dead and begin to rout. Then William gets back up and rips his helmet off and utilises his Iron Discipline doctrine and tells them to get the hell back in there and the day is won.

Anyone convinced?

Well put. Im convinced. But still not too happy. They could have said it in the 'dex.

Because Iron Discipline does not go through Vox, I've more or less abandoned the use of a voxnet. A voxnet might have been worth the points if it did transfer ID, but since it doesn't I prefer using the 12" leadership aura around my officers instead, since that leaves me with more points for guns.

Precicley.

For 5pts, there is no question that ID is worth it, but a vox network is a marginal investment as it is, there's no need to undermine it further.

Triumph, I see your point, I do agree, but I think both cases can be justified - and from a rules point of view I think ID goes towards makeing the vox worth it's points.
