Cult Troops as Troops/Elites

Postby Robopope » Fri Dec 28, 2012 1:13 am

Hey everyone, I just got the new CSM codex and have been messing around with cult armies. For example, if I include Typhus in the army he makes all Plague Marines into Troops choices and the rule is worded as thus:

Codex Chaos Space Marines wrote:Lord of the Plague Host
In a primary detachment that includes Typhus, Plague Marines are troops choices instead of elites.


Now am I correct in interpreting this to mean that Plague Marines can be taken in Typhus's army as Troops but not as Elites, therefore limiting me to six squads of Plague Marines? I have already consulted GW's FAQ and Errata section and they had nothing to say on this.

In this case yes, that is the correct interpretation. Some codex's state "troops as well as elites", but that isn't the case here.
Everyone is insane, its only a matter who's more obvious about it.

There are no "good guys"; everyone's a jerk, especially you.

One that comes to mind (perhaps because i play them) is Dark Angels.
Lion El’ Johnson – This one is an oldie but a goodie. Turns out he was a poet from the Victorian era who wrote a poem called ‘The Dark Angel’. He also was rumored to have quite the secret for those times.
