Default About meganobz and troops

Quick question! After reading Ghazghull's entry in the back of the Ork Codex, it states " allows one meganobz or nobz mob to be taken as a troops choice"

on the opposite page, Warboss says the same thing.

question being - if we take Ghazghull as 1 HQ choice and a regular Warboss as the 2nd HQ, can i get *2* troops of Mega Armored Nobz?

if you read both entries (page 96 and 97) it speficically says "ghazzghull allows..." and "A Warboss allows..."

see what im asking? (thank you everyone for your answers, ahead of time!)

Yep. You got it bang on - each warboss (or Gaz) allows you to take 1 Nob sqaud as a troops choice.

Right, each guy allows you to take a single mob of nob thingz as troop choices so yes, you can take Gazzy+Boss and take a couple of (mega)Nob mobz as troops

I hope that answers you question, CS


EDIT: 9 seconds, SILK you ninja!

ok, 2nd question based on that answer... since i play Tau, our HQs have bodyguards, also arnt scoring.

By the rules of "nobs are troops"... if Ghazz/warlord join the "troop nobs".... is it still scoring? or does his presence make it null?


(possibly starting orks is why i ask. 90% of the people at the store i play at are all space marines with their darn terminators, and i absolutely LOVE the way mega armor nobs look, so i wana stick-it-to-'em, so to speak)

If he joins the unit they are still a scoring unit. He does not negate that.

...but if his unit is destroyed then he isn't a scoring unit (because he's not a troops choice)

Well, yeah. But that's because IF Ghaz (or any other IC, btw) joins a unit, he is still - potentially - his own unit with his own rules for most purposes. It's not as if he loses his status or anything, and it's not as if he somehow becomes scoring by just being attached to a scoring unit.

Don't confuse "Bodyguards" (which are covered in the RUlebook on page 48), and a unit that has - through some special ability - a different FOC-slot. Those two things are completely different.

Neat catch.

Didn't know that... Anyone actually use it? That would be intimidating...

... but unless there were transports wouldn't that be a really slow list?..
