Imperial Guard Veterans
The armylist entry for the Imperial Guard Veteran squad says
"Replace two Veterans with a Veteran Weapons Team armed with one of the following:"
Follows are a list of all heavy weapons available to the IG and their pts cost.
I have two GWs in my local area, at one the red shirts say its obviously meant to mean you can add one heavy weapon per squad just like the rest of the IG infantry entries with this option (Company Command Squad, Platoon Command Squad, Infantry Squad). The other red shirts say that because none of the armylist entries for any of the above including the Veteran squads say "replace up to two veterans/guardsmen that there could be potentially four heavy weapons in each squad (since srgs do not have the option). In deference to the old codex, they dont let Company/Platoon command squads take more than one heavy weapon. But as a new list entry, they do allow Veteran squads to.
I personally think its sketchy, but by the letter of the rules, who is right?
All That is Gold Does Not Glitter
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
