Yes it appears so - they take a F.O.C. HQ slot and the requirement is ONE HQ SLOT and two troops slots taken up - so yes you can.

Yes he can be the only HQ model you need.

You can also take a Primaris psyker as a HQ, just as the Lord Commisar.

Sweet that cuts a lot of points and cash I need to be using for other things. Like a Forgeworld Styrgies pattern vanquisher

Just a quick note, I've seen an awesome conversion of the vanquisher. You use the barrel from the baneblade on a standard Russ.

I think it looks better than the pencil thin vanquisher barrel. Just my opinion though.

The baneblade barrels are also easily available through bits locations.

Considering the Lord Commissar costs 70 points and a command squad costs 50 that might not be saving you many points.

.... I should have specified, I already have the lord commisar in my list as a little extra help in CC with my CC vets, and my command squad is taking up a chimera.

It's 50 before you add obligatory Medic, Vox and Master of Ordnance. I also generally run Carapace Armour on mine as it helps them survive much longer. So that 50 turns into 115 at the minimum.

Medic's are way too expensive! Sure they offer a good benefit but I keep my command squads in the back in Chimera's.

I am going to get a Lord Commisar and run him as a 2nd HQ.
A company HQ and their order system is to good to pass up, but being a sucker for the Gaunts ghost series means I simply can´t avoid the tastiness of a lord Commisar!
