Is it legal to take a Command Platoon, Creed and an Inquisitor Lord ally for Callidus access?

Choosing the side, screwing the opponents deployment and launching a Callidus attack seems pretty nasty. Maybe a little expensive...

If only I had my guard case. Can you ask Nathan to bring it Sunday Jigplums?

Does Creed come with the option to include him in a Command Platoon, or is he a seperate HQ slot?

Not 100% on this Jez but I am fairly sure that all 3 count as an HQ choice. You could possibly take the Elites Inq for the assassin.

No can do I'm afraid, with the Assassin being an Elite choice theres no way of squeezing them all In.
As far as Creed and Kell go re-rolling for first turn or choosing board edge can make a massive difference If you tune your army around them.
Kell not too shabby In combat either! :D

I wasn't sure, reading this made it confusing.

Liber Heresius - The most incredible item an Inquisitor can take. Its actually relatively cheap for its very strong ability to give you control over your game and opponent. Choosing a deployment zone is very powerful, especially in missions where it is able to be used. For added power, it is greatly coupled with the Callidus Assassin who can alter deployment as well. And for the really masterful tactician, it is yet another tool for the Imperial Guard player who fields Ursarkar Creed and takes the Inquisitor with the Liber Heresius as an ally. This combination of Creed, Inquisitor and Calldius Assassin will allow you to choose the mission being played, choose the board edge you want, enhance your probability to have the first turn and move a unit up to 6 inches after deployment but before the game starts. This is incredibly powerful at wrecking an opponent's setup and strategy.
is this bollocks then?

So you could take them all?

it'd be nasty moving someones favourite unit into the open, get first turn, drop 3 pie plates on its head then assault with the callidus.

This could come in especially handy if you moved the unit towards your infiltrated vet squads for rapid fire plasma.

Creed and Kell HQ
Command Plattoon HQ
DH allies allow you take a single Elite slot so basically you can get the Inquisitor with his Liber Heresius but not the Assassin, could still be usefull for choosing board edge AND re-rolling first turn although a tad expensive.

To summarise, yes. You can't choose the mission either, If you roll a six for mission choice and It goes to strategy rating THEN you get to choose. :roll:
Back In the day I used to use Creed and kell In combination with mini vet squads, Infiltrate hope the re-roll goes well then BANG first turn plasma/melta death, a bit hit and miss but amusing all the same.
