I was thinking about giving my dark eldar squad leaders splinter cannons, that way I can allocate any hit that roles a six. (heavy 6 means on average he will be allocating a wound a turn!).
In the codex it says you may give a dark eldar a splinter cannon. Then it says you may upgrade a warrior to a squad leader? So can I upgrade the warrior I gave a splinter cannon to to be a squad leader (of course he would not be able to take any close combat weapons as he would not have a splinter rifle to exchange for them).
Seems logical to me, but I'm not sure. Is this correct?
