Squad composition and Leadership
« on: March 25, 2008, 03:43:35 PM »
Ok, I'm going to ask a few questions here.

I've read several FAQs but I haven't found anything on this one.

1. The Neronion Legionnaires don't require leaders?

2. The rules state:
Quote
Each Squad contains a minimum and a maximum number
of Troopers, which are listed in parenthesis next to that
Squad's Trooper name in the Squad Structure.
Quote
The profile will tell you how many core troops
are required for each type of specialist. All Squads have different
requirement for Specialists, so pay close attention to the criterion
offered. Unlike core troops, there is no minimum for Specialists
within a Squad, since they are considered optional.

We've interpreted it this way:
  • You need the stated minimum of grunts to start a squad. The sergeant does not count towards this number.
  • The sergeant do however count towards the total number when calculating how many specialists you may buy.
  • Sergeants are required unless otherwise stated.
  • For every specialist, you're required to have the stated minimum of grunts.
    IE, you need 4 grunts to have one specialist, 8 grunts to have 2 specialists 12 grunts for 3 specialists.

Thanks..

That is correct. They are a leaderless squad. The first model to activate each turn becomes the focus model aka defacto squad leader.

Hope this helps.

BTW Welcome to the forums.  :)

Thanks, I was thrilled to find the forum..

A follow-up on the Neronions though..

Is there any other possible leader for them that can also para-drop?

Well if you field horde units with them you can bring praetorian stalkers if you are looking for more fire power. Dont forget just because they CAN para deply doesnt mean they have to they can deploy as normal troops as well.

But to directly answer your question I dont think there is and individual that you could bring to be a leader that para deploys.
