Default Veterans

So can you take veterans as your infantry squads?

Well not as your infantry squads in a platoon but they are seperate troop choices.

Wow That means I can drop the second platoon and just go 1 platoon and two Veteran teams? That's epic... or at least an epic points drop for me.

You could go all 6 troops choices as Veterans if you want, and give them any and all of the 3 upgrades if you wish (the Veteran upgrades like Grenadiers, Demo Experts, and the other one are not mutually exclusive, you can take them all, but it gets expensive).

veterans are a very attractive troops choice, (special weapons x3, BS4, 4+save), that can be further modified with unique characters. If you want mobile Guard, you want veterans......and well Chimera's....or their not so mobile.

Yeah, but Walkurie's are only used by guardsman that can't afford Valkyrie's! Now the Walkdetta is hellishly fearsome '-)

*Chuckles* No, he's making fun of your spelling. All in good fun. :P

And Veterans are great for smaller games. That way it allows you to run a Command Squad with some extra stuff and home some pretty powerful troops running about, which can make your numbers 35 and over (5 from the Command Squad and 3 Veteran Squad decked out).
