IG infantry platoon rules

Postby Morendie » Thu Apr 13, 2017 7:44 pm

Does Astra Militarum infantry "have" to come in platoons? I know Platoons counts as a single unit, but am I able to just bring a simple 10 man as a troop choice? From the looks of it I can just do a veteran squad of them as a troop choice. It didnt say anything platoon around them.

Veterans can be taken is squads of 10. Infantry squads must be taken in platoons.

You just say they are veterans. Some people do some cool conversion with aftermarket bits but I have never done that myself. I just use the standard guardsman.

How dare you cheapen their accomplishments by allowing standard IG to claim veterancy!
