Default Quick imperial Guard question

Does an armoured fist squad have to consist of steel legionarres?

although, if you rode into battle packed into the back of a steel coffin with 9 of your best friends, you'd wear a gas mask, too! ;D

if you put a commissar in closeorder is he leadership 11? because haveing a bunch of conscripts with higher leadership than a spacemarine highmarshall seems nice.

throw in chem-inhalers and you would have psuedo-fearless conscripts. lol i can just imagine it, black templars rolling on the floor cowering in fear and a conscript just stepping over him and charging into a blood thirster.

The basic rulebook talks about the maximum values for statlines, like leadership. Read it if you have it. If you don't have it, buy it.

Don't tell me that you fell for the MTV lie?
The MTV lie is that people who rebel against tradition are thnking for themselves, while those who follow tradition are just sheep who do not think.
It is, of course, completely untrue. The decision to follow tradition is just as much an exercize of free will as is the decision to depart from it.

So....why is this up?

Anyway, no. It just Steel Legionaires are famous for it, as they frequently use mechanised lists, and so are often associated with Armoure Fist.

well we answered the original question, so why waste a good thread and let it die. if he didn't know that you could use any models for an armoured fist im sure he wouldn't know what the leadership of a commissar is while in close order drill. here at tauonline we not only answer questions we ask them.
