Default Can Space Marine HQ choices be given terminator Honors?

Please help to settle an argument. Can Chaplains, Librarians, and Captains be given Terminator Honors?

I'd think they already have it, and it's built into their statline...or it'd be like promoting a general to sergeant :P

Yes you can. Burn anyone as a Heretic who says you can't.

Methinks you should read your Codex...

Every squad gets 1 Sergeant.

"Veteran" Sergeants are members of the First Company who have returned to a battle/reserve company to instruct and assist their battle-brothers. They have Terminator Honours because they were trained in the use of Tactical Dreadnought Armour.

Likewise, giving Terminator Honours to a Commander, Chaplain or Librarian shows they are, or were, members of the First Company.

Yes they can be given Terminator Honours. For an explanation read your codex or the reply above. It's quite simple..

this is where the interactive codexes (of which I have both) rule, I would recommend you get either one of them, it is well worth the $55 (Australian monies, I&#39;m an ozzy). They give you two columns in the unit selection process, one is what your unit has and the other, a list of what wargear is available also if you give your unit an illegal upgrade or something of the like it will tell you that you&#39;ve done something wrong.

Breifly, yes you can give your HQ&#39;s Termie honours and secondly I am hereby promoting Allies and Enemies of the imperium (please no replies saying that allies and Enemies of the imperium aren&#39;t great, it&#39;s my opinion that they are good, it is your right to have the opinion that it is not just don&#39;t attack me about it please)

bye

I thought you could! Thanks King and Wargamer, and all who replied. I have an all infantry army and am adding two chaplain reclusiarchs to the list to make up for the lack of Mobility. I am in the process of converting two minis to represent the Imperial answer to crisis suits."I will play against Tau a-lot and have worked this into the fluff. They are equipped with the standard equipment plus: artificer armor, bionics ( for fluff reasons to support the conversions) Jump packs, frag grenades, Plazma pistols(shoulder mounted predator style) and yes terminator honours. The goal is to have a nasty close combat machine able to bolster any Tactical squad on short notice. The Two of them together might be a little cheesy but what the heck I don&#39;t have any tanks or speeders. Back to the topic. The extra attacks are worth the 15 points because they will operate as independent characters quite often as nothing else in the army can keep up with them, and I was told I could not do that. Thanks again guys. I love this website.

As I&#39;ve stated before, my codex is in North America, while I am in Asia...my vision isn&#39;t that great. However, it is my opinion that they should not have access to that upgrade, as it should be assumed that they had this much earlier in their careers. I think anyone not worthy of terminator honors isn&#39;t worthy of command. Imagine, the grand master of a thousand space marines, ignorant of how to wear tactical dreadnaught armor? Incredible! :P
