Yep, that's really useful

The stacking of Autarchs is an advantage for the Eldar army that forces them to take both HQs up with sub-par choices. Plus Eldar don't have near as many units that take advantage of special Reserve rules as IG does. So it's much less useful.

Taking two Command HQs has myriad other advantages and is in no way hamstringing the IG list. Also it would be worse if the Astropath stacked (advantage for IG) and the Fleet Officer didn't (which would royally fuck Daemons and Drop type armies).

So one helps just their own army and the other has the potential to make it a non-game for the enemy. Which would suck.

Strange, but not a Stranger.

Thanks for the reply's

Personally I think it is a good thing they don't stack, but my Eldar buddy refused to deploy his army vs IG en keeps most if not all of it in reserve so I wanted to make sure and it would have been kinda fun to feth him over like that

and eldar are really weak compared to IG so if they can get an "unfair" advantage through their FAQ well then go them.

The only fluff reason as to why IG get hampered and Autarchs do not is because I believe that the Autarchs can put behind their petty arguements and do not vie for the commanders attention because they are the commanders and probably have everything planned out in advance. Unlike the hapless guard.

I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT
