Shouldn't the Marshall have survival 3 as the V. Rangers and V. Kaptain do? ;D

Shouldn't the  V. Rangers and V. Kaptain have strategic insight as the marsal do? that is no wright. marsal is a leader not a trooper. he is not for the 1st line. thats my opinion

GRgeo, your question to Dragon's question comes off a bit condescending.  Please, try to use a different tone when responding to a legitimate question.


That said, Dragon62 does raise a valid point.  Survival Training is a skill gained through training and equipment.  The Venusian Rangers and the Venusian Ranger Kaptain have Survival Training and cool armor suits.  The Venusian Ranger Marshall appears to have the same armor, and, theoretically, has had the same training that the other rangers have had, fluff-wise.

Strategic Insight, on the other hand, is a skill that a model that represents a higher officer might have.  It is not a skill that lower level troops would possess, as it is a skill that is, generally, learned through experience and training and, when exercised properly, can result in being promoted from the rank and file to the position of Marshall.

While I do not, yet, know the answer, Dragon, I will try to find it for you.

Thanks for understanding, GRgeo.

Cultural challenges regarding language can, sometimes, lead to misunderstandings.  If I misunderstood you, and came across a bit heavy-handed, I, too, apologize to you.

It is not uncommon that the leader and heros are losing there special abilities during there career. There some other simular cases.
As an example Murdoch is THE Golden Lion but he forgot how to infiltrate. Just one example but if you look around you will find more.

The Marhall is just to old you know: "Ooh my back. I feel the weather change already in by leg! Damm I need nice warm soup and a fireplace in a cottage!"  ;D

Technically they are part of the rounding out process.  In many ways they have benefits; you might actually have more opportunity for self-improvement such as exercise and study.  Of course you are dying on the inside, but it's a small price to pay.
