Default How do Tervigons work?

When it comes to tervigons I am a little confused as to how they actually work...I know you can take them as a troop choice but what are the actual requirements to do so...also how does their termaguant spawning work? Do the termagaunts they poop out like become part of his unit or a seperate troop unit

The Codex explains this pretty clearly, but I'll confirm things.

A Tervigon can be taken as Troops with each squad of Termagants taken in the army.

The gants spawned by the Tervigon become their own unit.

They shit out termagants, creating a new unit within 6" of the tervigon, this is done in the movement phase. One can be taken as troops for each termagant unit in the army. This is all clearly explained in the codex.

Okay thanks for the responses, the only thing I wasn't sure about was if the termagaunts counted as part of the tervigons own unit...thanks for clearing it up

The Tervigon is a unit of 1. It is a monstrous creature, without the Independant Character rule, so there is no way it can form or join a unit. Everything else is in the Codex.

There are 2 rules to being a success in life:
1) Never give out all the information

Don't forget the kissing! There's lots of kissing. Then the babies jump out of mommy's belly button. And storks bring the diapers, for some reason.
