Default Medic!

Sorry to clog up the boards with a silly question, but I've looked down the last 10 or so pages and can't find an answer to this question: is it possible for my friend to attach a Platoon Command Squad with a medic to a super-squad of combined Infantry squads? I, of course, have my doubts about this as it would a) make Guardsmen on par in survivability as Marines, b) be unrealistic as hell and c) be broken beyond belief.

Please tell me this is illegal! It's not that much fun trying to bring down a 55-strong Guard squad sitting in cover with Feel No Pain :

i assume you could do it :, provided that the uber large squad is combined, & the pcs is attached to 'em

dont quote me on it though....

still i'd be wary of doin somethin like that, putting your egg in one massive basket...

Don't worry the combined squads rule only allows infantry squads to combine not PCS's, Heavy weapon Squads, Special weapon squads, Conscripts (if they could it would be the most horrifying unit bar one)

You mean "Perform Eldar tactics better than Eldar", right? :P
Not unless the Eldar have an obscure Warrior Aspect that revolves around the complete mastery of the common light bulb.

Bar one? That would be the most horrifying unit period! Trust me, I had the misfortune to face one today... glad to know I lost that game due to cheating rather than severe tactical ineptitude ;D Thanks for clearing that up.

An alternative would be in a 2V2 game if your ally has an IC that confers FNP then attatch it, that would be lethal.

I can just imagine 50 FNP guardsman coming at you bursting at the seams with special weapons!
