In a tournament legal army list Ultramarines can take 2 of the following 4 Calgar, sicarius, cassius or tiggy and then via army lists take telion and chronus, is that right or did i just miss something?

rather beardy/cheesy is it not especially using telion to get a M/L shot off at his BS :p

Why you'd want to not take Lysander in one of those HQ slots escapes me. :)

This actually sorta screws IG, we've only Two named Characters who aren't Unit Upgrades and only one of those is an HQ.

No thats right, and it seems semi-fluffy.

Depends on the tournaments. Some don't allow for any.

Yes, it is allowed. But I fail to see the cheese. All of them involve significant points investments and at some point the comparative lack of bodies on the field to absorb enemy fire with is just not there anymore.

And how exactly are IG 'screwed' by only having 2 named SCs that aren't unit upgrades? If you really wanted to waste those points, you could actually include all but one IG SC in one FO chart.

There's no cheese involved in fielding those 4 characters. You wouldn't have enough models on the field to absorb casualties and those characters would die, not really accomplishing anything.
