Flag Mans for IG

Post  ScottRadom on Mon Jul 21, 2008 1:06 pm

What do standards do for you in 40k for Imperial Guard. Is there a difference between the platoon command standards and the company command standards?

I got them for my death korps stuff and they're sweet models. Just don't know what they do for table effects.

Well, in the current edition of the codex there are two types of standards, a company/regimental standard and a .. umm, I think just a regular standard. If you buy a standard bearer for your command platoon (you have to upgrade one guy to a vet and then buy the standard, like 15 points total or something?) that standard allows you reroll all failed morale checks if your within 12". I take one when I play the guard only so my conscripts (leadership 5) get to use the commander's leadership of 9 and get to reroll at the same time. It's definitely worth it. If your officer's have iron discipline as well you can regroup when your below half as well!

The company/regimental standard has the same rule, but also does something else special at the same time.. which I can't remember offhand. I've never used one though.

You just can't wait, can you. Why are you so impatient? I sent you an e-mail telling you I would check for you when I got home. What, do you have some leadership tests you need to take on your butchers table? Does your knife have an option to take a regimental banner as a upgrade?

I am crying inside and out with the maliciousness of your accusations. While my knife has no option to upgrade itself into a banner of any type it does come with the option to drive itself to the hilt into my guts, which I may take now.

So I'm impatient, big deal! Also lazy as hell because I know I have a guard codex somewhere at home, I just couldn't find it in the 6 square feet of my living room that I checked in between changing diapers and responding to other less hurtful messages sent to me by caring individuals.

But if you could let me know whenever you have time I would be happy to know the answer.

Thanks buddy!

Units of imperial guard can reroll failed moral tests. apparantly Robyn is a cheator since it says "not including conscripts, ogryns, storm troopers, etc)

You can only have a standard bearer in your command platoon (H.Q.)

The regimental standard adds +1 combat resolution to any assault that takes place within 6".

Basically I find the standard as spending points to loose the game. Generally with imperial guard you want to run away....

It should work on everything, but thats just another ball dropping they did on that codex...

I can;t wait for the new one and heopefully they figure some things out like 60 point chimeras (after weapons).
