Default Pathfinders and their devilfish, what do they count as?

If I use pathfinders, I have to use a devilfish. The pathfinders, certainly count as a fast attack choice for my army. But, what does the devilfish count as? A troop choice? Another fast attack choice? Nothing at all?

Thanks in advance!

The fish is a dedicated transport, I believe.

I don't think it's possible to take an un-dedicated fish... is it?

Thats right, you cant take an un-dedicated DF transport. So to answer the question, the DF dosent count as anything on the army orginazation chart. The same would go if you bought it for a FW squad, they both would just take up one troop slot.

transports dont take up any slots on the force org charts. they are treated as a squad upgrade, like a SM missile launcher.

Sorry, to post again, but I have another quick question.


Does anybody know why the devilfish is under the troops section of the codex?



Thanks again

They always do that in codexes. Since there's no section for transports, the stick them in the troops section - the place they are mostly used. This doesn't mean they are Troops (and have a box around them to point this out clearly).

You can use the "Modify" button to add addition info to your last post.

Dedicated Transport units are always listed as Troops, DT's being vehicles that can only move the models they were bought for and do not occupy a force organization chart. *E.g Devilfish, Rhino, Wave Serpent, Chimera.

Hmm Just to clarify

Its listed multiple times, as its a upgrade to that squad, acting as a dedicated transport. You'll notice it has its own little box under the pathfinder unit AND the fire warrior squad, as its an upgrade that can be taken as each.

And also - this is covered in the rulebook, Page 62 in the Battle For Macragge one.

Just to clarify, what codex are you reading, Mace?

There is no box under the Pathfinder entry, only the "Transport: Must buy Devilfish thus almost nerfing the squad blah blah blah..." entry in special rules.
