View Full Version : Command Group's Postion in Front Rank

Heyyo, quick question:

The gaming group I've joined WHFB with tell me that my command group must be centered in the front rank. I see on page 80 that it says they need to be in the front rank. Where does it say they need to be centered?

In the 6th Ed BRB. The offending line was removed from the current rule set but a centered command group does look snazy.

Yeah, this was definitely a changeover from the previous edition.

I like the change, too; I always kept my Dwarfen standard bearers on the front left corner of my units for stylistic purposes.

could be for practical reasons too, sometimes its just impossible to make the 3 command guys fit side by side.
i can never decde if i prefer the banner or the chapion to be the middle guy.

I like to centre my banner, put my champ right of him, and my musician far left.

They can be anywhere in the front rank, they don't have to be together. It sometimes helps characters to be on a flank, so if they get charged there they can challenge; it sometimes helps them to be in the middle, so chargers at their front don't miss them. So it's a choice you have to make.
