View Full Version : Can Beast heroes join Beast herds?

Rules wise a character with a mark can only join a unit that has the same mark. Given that, beast heroes can't join beast herds. The odd thing about this, and I'm sure it has been brought up, are the items that literally make no sense in the beast army book. The Preyseeker banner, for example, is only useful as far as I can see on a Wargor BSB who is ambushing alone on foot. No unit that can take a banner can ambush. So what is the deal?

Herds have no mark. There is no restriction to marked characters joining an unmarked unit. They just canot join a unit with a different mark to their own.

And beast characters with 'raiders & ambush' rule can join herds and still ambush. As above-
A character with mark can join any unmarked unit, or unit with the same mark.
A character cannot join a unit bearing a different mark to his own.
