Question for everyone- battalions, and meta battalions- is there a way to have validation errors thrown for required units?

set them up like formations...
idk if setting them up like that and using links will cause the validations to be satisfied for list compisition

That's what I was thinking- making them basically be like formations in 40k

Would make it super-easy to keep meta battalions like starbeast constellation units all correct.
Also, have we not yet added legacy races? I didn't see lizardmen in allegiances for order

There's a sprinkling of legacy stuff across the datafiles, Tomb Kings are there for example

@alphalas I've set up the Ironjawz Battalions so they automatically include the appropriate unit composition, with appropriate options to increase/decrease within the battalion limits.
Basically, you add a battalion and it's pre-built with the minimum requirements.
Only problem is I haven't figured out how to make units with in a battalion count towards the battleline requirements yet.
Dunno if that's how 40k formations work, haven't looked at them... but sounds like I've essentially done what @flakpanda described and hit the problem he mentioned :P

Idea, lower the min/max for the battlefield role of the selected units in a battalion to make it work?
idk if it would break pushing the min value lower than 0/-1 tho
