Can a chaplain on a bike join a tactical or attack squad? This idea was brought up in another thread and I can't find anything that says that he cannot.
Well Litanies of Hate and Fearless are good reasons to attach him to the squad. What I've seen happen is the Chaplian joins one squad, assualts with the squad and wipes out a unit. In his next turn he leaves that unit, joins another unit, and assualts with them into another unit. Moving 12" allows them to jump around to join whatever squad needs him the most.Yep.
The only restriction regarding bikes is that if the chaplain has a retinue he may not be mounted on a bike.
But, as mentioned, no transports and he has top move 6" when joined up. Might be best to leave him unattached and just *near* the squad. There's not really any advantage to having him join the squad since ICs can;t be shot at if there's a closer target
that is why you join the squad that is about to assault on your turn. you will only have to worry about it if you massacure and can't sweep into another squad. not to worry though, you'll hve to take a hit on any remaining marines before he has to save any way. If he does take a save you're taking huge amounts of fire any way so the extra toughness does not help as much.also bear in mind that he will suffer from majority toughness when part of a squad, so apart from gettig a twin linked bolter and the turbo boost, it may be more cost effective to just give him a jump pack to dart between squads
