Played a game the other day and was confused by how I thought the Spearhead formations work with the units involved.
I took the Monstrous Creature Spearhead which gives your MC's a bunch of USR's including "rage". I decided to use all 3 of my Talos for the spearhead but I was unclear on how the Talos were going to work on the battlefield.
What I wanted to do was open Web Way Portals and have the Talos come out of the portals however I wanted them to come out of different portals and operate independently of each other.
What my opponent said was they were a squad now and had to act together, keep coherency, move towards the same target, shoot at the same target and charge the same target.
This is not what I wanted to do and would have not taken the Spearhead as having 3 Talos charge the same tank or IG squad is just not efficient. I couldn't really find anything that mentioned coherency of the units that are in the same spearhead other than that when you roll for reserves then you only roll for the spearhead, if it is ready then all the units in the spearhead are ready and can enter the game (I just thought they would enter the game at the same time but come out of separate web way portals.
Are the Talos really a squad that has to stay together?
