More than one emperor's champion?

Postby -KnightACT » Sun Jul 30, 2006 10:08 pm

a) Did GW f'd up again and failed to limit the number of champoins black templar army can take?

b) so codex space marine armies now have no access to emp champions?

You certainly can field the army of 2 5 man squads, 1 captain, and about 13 emperor's champions and it will be completely legal. Yes they did screw up again.
Fast, like kittens with jetpacks.

Being one of the few Templars players at the club, I brought this up when the Codex was first released. Silly, silly oversight on GW's part - especially considering that they clarified squad weapons option upgrades and how they replace the original weapon - but I tend to consider the "spirit of the game" when things like this arise. So, apparently, it's legal with respect to the RAW but, well, you know...

If we ever see FAQs I'd expect BT to "lose" the option.
