Default question about taking HQs

This question stemmed from a post I saw on the Rumor boards.
In the new codex, its a 1+ requirement for commanders.

When you take, for example, 2 Shas'el, does that count as One hq choice, or two?

I'm pretty sure they count as the two total choices you can have, but I just want to make sure.

Two. A Shas'El or O, plus zero to two bodyguards, and any drones, is a single HQ choice. Two shas'els, or two shas'Os, is two choices.

Yes, it is two HQ choices and I imagine it will be a fairly popular choice to take (two Shas'Els) instead of a singly blingy Shas'O.

Never mind how much more expensive the Shas'O is than a Shas'el.

You pay quite a bit for the improvements. THis can really eat into your forces in lower points games.

That's even WITHOUT the new cyclic ion cannon, super ordnance template nade launcher, escape pod or command nodes
