Independent character and hammerhand
Im not sure if this has already been established one way or the other, but if an independent character joins a unit and casts hammerhand does the unit also benefit from the +1S?
The way I understand it is that when an independent character joins a unit they are considered as a single unit with a couple of exceptions. Which in my mind would mean that since a single unit in a strike squad for example casts hammerhand and the rest of his unit benefits then, yes an independent character's hammerhand will affect a unit he has joined.
However the thing that throws me off is; "all models in the unit (including independent characters) have +1 strength" this seems to imply that they arent treated as a single unit for hammerhand. In other words the fact that the make special provision for hammerhand affecting an independent character when cast from a unit he has joined but fail to mention what happens in the reverse implies that the intention is that it does not cross over.
I am personally leaning to the side that says that an independent character's hammerhand affects a unit he has joined because that would make sense if a unit's hammerhand affects an independent character.
I love the game, but the guys that wrote this codex were either high, trying to mess with us, or in a worrying state of mental capacity.
