Default Etherials 0-1 or 0+ ?

Hey everyone.

I have been hunting through the new codex and last night discovered that the Etherials in the HQ section are no longer 0-1. Just wanting to clarify this as 2 etherials would be very cool as a HQ with 2 Vet FW squads and 2 DF transports ;D. Some more clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Ethereals are an optional extra. But as you have to have one commander, you're limited to one ethereal. Unless you decide to use multiple FOC's.

Why would you even want 2 Ethereals? You're passing up the use of a Crisis Commander that can more than make up for his points in kills for something that, as far as I am concerned, doesn't do much of anything at all.

Doesn't make sense to me.

It makes perfect sense. If you had 2 etherals, not only would you get to re-roll most morale checks, if one died, you could re-roll THOSE morale tests, and still get to reroll! Plus, since you need LOS, it makes it a lot easier to reroll.

one thing that i believe i must point out is that HQs are 1-2 PER ARMY unles you are playing with some special rule. to further collaborate on this one look at the Top of the commander suit entry, you will notice 1+ that means that one of you HQs ALWAYS has to be a commander crisis suit.
