Default Markerlight question (yes another one)

I've read through some of the old threads about them but still don't understand

If i get a single markerlight hit on say a squad of space marines, and then decide to use that markerlight hit with a squad of 12 FW shooting at that same squad of marines do all 12 of the FW get an increase on there BS or does one member of that squad get the increased BS if so that would make me have to roll a separate dice, right?

Your help would be appreciated

one markerlight for the whole squad.

it would be madness for only one fw to get that.

You mean "model", not unit.

BTW; in the 3rd Edition Codex, Markers worked exactly like that - they affected only a single MODEL (but this modelthen hit its target with all weapons on 2+; so not that bad).

Cheers,

Yeah, I had a similar problem trying to understand model squad unit etc... I lot of the 40K rules become much more clear once you've grasped the terminology.

Don't feel bad, I'm on like my 6th read through the rule book, and 100th or so through the codex, and I still have a ton of questions.

Here is something I made up to help you remember terminology:

Nice pictures, however, I believe squad = unit.

see I thought so too... but Devilfish can take advantage of the marker light from a shas'ui FW in the same squad. Shrug. This game has too may rules that trump other rules.
