I talking specifically about Tellion here. My reading would be that you can'r give him a teleport homer or melta bombs because they are upgrades for the sarge who has been replaced by him but you can give him a camo cloak because its an up grade "for the whole squad" There is nothing under the special characters rules, as there is with WFB that they must be played exactly as presented. Would you agree?

First off, there is a rules forum for this kinda thing.

Secondly, no. Sergeant upgrades are for the sergeant, not telion, it's a name for a model, not a rank.

As for camo-cloaks, Telion doesn't need one as he already has stealth. The rest of the squad can still get it because it's a squad upgrade (like a chaos Icon or a Tyranid Biomorph).

Telion simply has no options, and must be played exactly as presented. How else could you play him? A few SC's do have options (Belial, Sammael, Skulltaker), but they are rare.

No, special characters can be upgraded, within their options, which are frequently very limited/non existent.

Best example is all the IG Officers and veteran sergeants, who have various set gear, but as you put them in a squad, they can get assorted grenades, camo cloaks, carapace armour, etc as those are all whole squad upgrades...

Special Characters that can actually buy anything are very rare indeed.. Such models have the available options clearly marked in their own unit entry.

Just because it doesnt give him any benifits so doesnt that mean that he wont get it nor have to pay the points for it. There is no rule against equiping a character with gear he has no use for.

Except that if you don't give telion one you can't give the rest of the squad one.
