@/all, so, page 15 of the Commanders book. "Your Command Roster cannot include more than 1 of any particular Commander model".
No more than one selection from a data sheet?
If I have two physical models for the same datasheet I can have two on my Roster?

Is an Exalted Sorc on a Disc a different model to a walking one

@Mad-Spy idk that’s kinda ambiguous. Does it mean data slate? If so why not just state that. Or do they mean model. Then I can have a company and a platoon commander
My guess is the latter

Exactly, it's a terrible way of laying out what they mean.
My gut on the intent is that you can't have more than one copy of a datasheet.
i.e. your Commander for your campaign is the same person all the way through.
given they can't actually die.

Yeah, but like for IG you have two available models per data sheet.
Ie company commander and platoon commander
I could take both with them wording it per model and not per data sheet

then I can take both a Exalted Sorc on a Disc and a normal one! They're different models.
If I have a Farseer with a Singing Spear and a a Farseer with a Witchblade, they're different models.
WHY DIDN'T THEY JUST SAY DATASHEET!!!

GW logic
it does make you wonder if there was any serious QA, at least form a rules perspective
it happens with almost every book, too. book is released, people point out the obviously broken things, GW erratas them out (at least most of them)

They've also replicated the problem they had where Leaders made themselves immune to Nerve Tests, which they FAQed out for the main game.
Leadership Commanders can also make themselves immune.

Max is listed as 1 in the datasheet isn’t it?
Before war gear options.
So the model doesn’t matter. It’s the datasheet.

Well for single line data sheets. That’s why I called out IG and commanders. Each are max 1
Even tho it’s the same data sheet

Ahh that's interesting.
Maybe you get both?

@acebaur I'll be in for that, considering deffskulls instead of bugs if there are some fun rules for them, can get my conversion hat on

@WindstormSCR orks might be a good option for you, definitely the complete opposite of marines or eldar...!!

yeah, and I love doing conversions, which fits deffskulls perfectly, and they're blue! (favorite color)
means my whole massive bitz boxes become fodder

both good plans... I've only bought the 500th store lieutenant since "ages"... (the first issue of Conquest) ... but before that it was ... a while :smile:
but things are getting built and painted at (for me at least) record speed so that's all groovy :smile:
