Mixed squads of troops with different special rules

Postby tommahoney » Mon Aug 10, 2009 4:01 pm

Several times, I haved formed squads of 4 or 5 that have one unit with the stealth special rule. Does it affect the squad's cover when the squad is shot at, even though only one trooper has the special rule?

I wouldn't think so, otherwise you could make a giant squad with a single special rule and have them all benefit.  I think it works the other way - if they can hit ONE unit, they can hit ALL the units.

Because members of a squad are considered to be anywhere on the board, the entire board would have to be in cover, I would give the attacking player the option to attack the model with the stealth rule individualy or totally ignore them. In short, putting them in the same squad would cancel this rule, don't do that.

Even if the unit were completely invisible, he can get hit just the same when people shoot at the rest of the squad.  Unless the whole squad is stealth, and there is cover for the entire squad plate, I don't think stealth would give a single unit any advantages.
