Imperial Guard Questions
could anyone please tell me what a Vox caster does, as I don't have access to a codex but i would like very much like to know. Thanks

If you have one, and so does the Order issuing squad, you can re-roll the failed LD test of an Order fail.

Hardly that worth knowing, IMO.

I think it proves vital because in fair chances you could pull off the double 1 and gain a free order-or a fail but it's worth the chances

Since guardsmen squads have ld8, and getting orders through helps you a lot when shooting things to little bits, the vox rerol is very usefull. Since a squad can only receive 1 order per turn, you don't want it to fail.
Besides, it's fluffy.. a good imperial guard army has a strong chain of command, that means also good communication between squads and their superiors.

They'd be better if being a PCS Vox Officer didn't prevent you having a proper gun...

What's wrong with a lasgun?

TheKingElessar 05-11-09 11:35 AM

:laugh: Nothing, if you don't intend to use it. Or it's dark and you can't see where you're going. In a squad that can have 4 BS4 Meltas, or Plasmas, a lasgun is a waste.

what squad can have 4 BS4 meltas??

Inquisitor Einar 05-11-09 01:36 PM

HQ squad, they're all veterans, and can be upgraded with neat stuff.
A vox being one of the better options imho, since it means your officer can now issue his orders and expect them to be heard and obeyed.

ah, me no clever! forgot about command squad, though 4 special weapons in a 5 man squad which is more then vital to the survival of your army is not a good thing. makes it too much of a target, especially when you consider the (roughly) average range of the special weapons is around 12"
