How do you add Vets to the Formation, or are you playing Unbound with this list?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

OH MAN. I totally thought you were using the Steel Host formation because of the name and the 'Steel Host HQ' and such. So this is a Combined Arms Detachment then and has nothing to do with the formation?

@ntaw Can't it be both? It's the Steel Host Formation, which can be used in a CAMS, correct? I want to be bound and use the formation rule of Preferred Enemy. Am I missing something?

Units cannot belong to multiple formations/detachments. Can't cite because I'm across the country on vacay.

Coteaz

How about that? Drop the vets add Coteaz, make him the warlord. Can he give blessings to the tanks, like ignore cover?

I think so, but he'll get pegged off mighty quick since he can't attach to vehicle squadrons.

From the OP, you can run it as CAD but won't get the PE bubble effect. But pask himself does have PE. Plasmacutioners love PE though. In that instance I'd probably trade out the Punisher for the Exe since the PE benefits the whole unit and tank orders can let them split their fire.

Build a man a fire, he will be warm for a day.
Set a man on fire, he will be warm the rest of his life.

Yeah sorry man, @ntaw and @christopher.dean are right.

Unbound may be a problem for your meta, but the CAD way of running that would be fine though you'd lose the preferred enemy, or drop the special and heavy weapons from the squads, throw in a L1 Psyker inquisitor for divination and use one squad to hide on objectives in cover and the other to protect your psyker as he sends the tanks into beast mode.

Your second one looks nice too, Coteaz will be a major target but if you play with enough LOS blocking terrain and un-ruined buildings/bunkers, maybe that won't be a problem?

What about running Pask without HB and bringing a Vindicare Assassin instead of Coteaz?
