Default Sorry can't hear you over the engine, uh Sir

I'm putting together a mechanized list & I just realized that one reason I took Bastonne (extra order) is null & void. So I gotta ask has anyone run him in mech lists to any real effect?

I used him with a squad mounted in a Valk. they jumped out next to a land raider, and he gave the "take it down" order so they could twin link their melta guns. That's the only game I used him in, it was pretty useful.

Hmm. Very nice point. I may end up giving his transport to someone else & tossing him in the Valkyrie.

Best use of seen of Bastonne was in a Kill Team game, he was pretty good in that. If you want an armor commander, take Pask. He makes nasty IG tanks, even nastier.

No, kill team was removed from the rulebook, you can still do whatever the hell you want with games!

well, if its taken out of the book then technically it doesn&#39;t exist any longer. if this person was using a different set of rules, thats a different story, because how am i supposed to know that he is playing a remade version of kill teams? if he is playing using the old rules, then vehicles are not allowed, which i am assuming this character is like a vehicle upgrade? even if it isn&#39;t he is a commander, and they are not allowed in kill teams. so then he is playing a different version, and therefore would have no idea how that applies to the question at hand because it probably is very much different than a regular game of 40k.

You do raise fair points, but there&#39;d be ways to work around it especially easy in a mates game which is what it would be if not a completely current game system...BUT I don&#39;t know everything :P I&#39;m just saying in a friendly manner that it&#39;s a bit narrow

Anyways probably best we get back on topic!

well, we are talking about how the character itself being applied to a game that has been removed from the rule book. not how the kill team could be incorperated into 5th edition.

yes, lets continue. too bad i don&#39;t know anything about this fellow
