Default Catachan Comapny Organisation queries...

I just saw somthing I must have over-read so many times before.

On page 12 of codex Catachan it states.

-solid borders indicate complusory units.
-Dotted borders indicate optional units.

Now these are all of the boxes.

Solid:
-Company (title of chart)
-Command HQ
-platoon (Sub title)
-Platoon commander
-Infantry squad
-Infantry squad

Note: Only one of the six platoon boxes is actually bordered by a solid line.

Dotted:
-Assault teams
-Sentinels
-Catachan Devils (0-1)
-Ogryns
-Snipers
-Mortars
-5x Platoon
-Fire support squad
-Infantry squad
-Infantry squad
-Patrol squad

Now here are my questions.
1- does this mean that Catachans only need 1 troops and 1 HQ for a legal army?
2- does this mean that Catachans can substitute a infantry squad for a patrol squad?

No on both counts.

The diagram you refer to is for fluff purposes only. Do not use it as a FOC.

it wouldnt make any sence though. they would be the only exception to the FOC.
and actually, that wasnt a FOC, but a break down of the various components in a catachan force.


*note- they show five platoons and break down onein the diagram.

Yeah but only one platoon (the expanded one) has a solid border.
