Default Icon question

So question; if I have a CMS squad with an icon bearer and the bearer dies do they lose the bonus?

Yes, if the Icon Bearer dies they lose the bonus. IIRC, I thought it explicitly mentioned that, but I could be wrong.

IIRC is a general use internet acronym that stands for "If I recall/remember correctly".

Yeah if they kill the icon bearer they lose the bonus.

Wound allocation can lead to the icon bearer being killed before the rest of the squad or things that single out a model.IIRC One blood angel physic power has the ability to sometimes kill models so beware as other things that escape my mind right now.

Do you all give the mark/icon to a normal marine or to the aspiring champion?

Most people give the icon to a normal marine, as it increases wound allocations. Plus, it would make the Aspiring Champion uber-expensive.

Who you give the icon to has nothing to do w/ points, the unit is going to cost the same no matter who is carrying the icon.

I agree w/ the consensus that it should be given to a regular rank & file marine, for wound allocation purposes.

Going on a limb here but I had an opponent question me on this - the mark of chaos glory can allow Lessor daemons to be summoned off of right? Can terminators teleport off it too?

First it is an icon of chaos glory not a mark of chaos glory. A mark of chaos glory does not exist there is only the icon.

Lesser deamons, terminators, and obliterators can both summon to an icon of chaos glory or any icon.
