    You guys sold out, You used to be about the game. Now all you do is plug in your business.

    I think selling out to oneself is perfectly fine 😉

    Hey guys! Thanks for posting my Rules Lawyer question (I’m Charles), but you didn’t answer my question. The Aegis the the rule that lets you re-roll 1s, the Aegis allows you to re-roll your DtW roll. The problem stems from what a DtW roll is, is it the test, or is each d6 you rolled to attempt to nullify a WC a roll and the collective rolls DtW test?

    Hey guys. I cant see where it states that supplements cant ally with the parent codex. Do you have a page reference?

      It’s not that they cannot ally it’s that they cannot be used as an allied detachment. This is because supplements count as the same faction as their parent book and allied detachments cannot be the same faction.

    I keep bouncing between UCM (let’s be real: it’s about the praetorians for me) and the PHR (dem aesthetics).

    “Why not both?”

    Just moved, so I’m not in ideal finances to do both yet.

    Oh what are your guys thoughts on the CCB now that 7th has completely revamped chariots?

  9. trueknight June 1, 2014 6:10 pm #

    The way it looks to me, is that supplements can’t ally w their parent codex, but CAN be included in the primary detachment… It says all units must b from the SME faction

      You can take two Combined Arms Detachments one from the supplement and one from the vanilla and then you are BB with your self (or your supplement)
