If your friend plays chaos, either iron warriors or night lords, he can. Otherwise, tell him to look at the force organization chart more closely.

Cheers!

Has your freind even red the rules?! Taking more than the force org chart allows completely defeats the purpose of one. Unless your freind collects iron warriors (4 heavy supports) or has filled up all the troop slots, elite slots, fast attack slots, heavy support slots and HQ slots (In which case he is entitled to use a second force org chart).

Hope this has cleared things up a bit.

Once you reach 2000 points and above, you use an additionaly force organization chart. For every 2000 points you are allowed another one. The rule is in the middle to back somewhere of the BBB and is under something like "large battles" or some nonsense.

Other than that, there are lots of armies that break the FoC Chart rules. Iron Warriors and Saim Hann Craftworld lists are 2(though Saim Hann have been changed with the new dex so no longer legal).

There are likely other brainbending rules out there printed in some obscure citadel journal(ask Wargamer he'd know em all) but unless the person has the rules in front of me where I can read them I don't let them play anything. And if it is some obscure WD or Citadel Journal army, it is your decision to play against it or not.

There are a few different army specific ways to bend those rules, but in general, yes, you only get three of each of those.

What army does he play or where you playing a special scenario? If you were playing a scenario he could have used a different FoC like "raid" (or something like that). But otherwise no he can't.

No, you are entitled to three slots for both fast attack and heavy support, unless

1)He is talking about Codex Apocalypse

2)He is a Chaos player

There are also armies that can take heavy slot options in different parts of the FOC. For instance wraithguard can be troops, and speed freaks can transport elites and hq with battlewagons.

Gray Knights can be ether Troops or FA.
There are few other instances of units able to take diffrent slots.
