Default Scions of Mars question

in the scions of mars section of the traits system it says

"May upgrade a Techmarine to have an extra wound at +15pts. Any Techmarine upgraded in this way counts as a HQ selection and you may not use commanders at all."

I have interpreted this in two ways

-you have the option to upgrade a techmarine to have an extra wound, he will be a HQ choice. But if you don&#39;t upgrade him you can still use commanders

or

-you may not use commanders and you have the option to upgrade a techmarine to have an extra wound, and he will be a HQ choice.

can someone please tell me which of the two is correct (and if neither are correct please tell me what is correct)

thanks guys

I think its that you cannot use commanders at all if you take the Scions of Mars trait and you have the option to upgrade a Techmarine to an HQ. Note that it doesnt say the upgrade replaces the commander just that thats an option and by the way commanders arent available with this trait.

it means if you give the Techmarine an extra wound, he&#39;s an HQ choice and you can&#39;t use commanders at all, as the thing about the commanders would be a seperate sentance if you couldn&#39;t use them without the upgraded Techmarine... The text after it is completely and totally irrelavant as the dual point cost is for models with only one wound, but it says you can&#39;t give Termie armor to single-wound models... vexing...

How can you be sure what you know is the truth if you haven&#39;t taken the time to ask yourself the questions that dispute it?
