Messed up my wording there a bit. I meant to say that Jump and Jet Pack Infantry are "Infantry" and they are allowed to embark. It's just they usually have rules that make them less desirable in transports (Jet-Pack confers Very Bulky for example).

You guys. :D

Yes he has Eternal Warrior, so no you can't snipe him properly.

And no he obviously can't join units nor embark in vehicles. Independent Character IS a subtype but even if he had it the FAQ prevents him from joining units just like our Coldstar Commander. ;)

Allegedly at the end of the book he goes on a new crusade. I wonder where who is target is?

Also on a sidenote the formation with Cato and Sternguard/Vanguard Veterans is supposed to let him LOS! wounds onto them when he is in 3" range or so.
Whether that means that you still have to wound against his T6 or not is unclear though. Guess we'll have to wait for some proper screenshots of those rules.

I apologise. I had forgotten about the FAQ.

All of the Tau HQs are "Infantry (Character)" or "Jet Pack Infantry (Character)." I have yet to see a datasheet in any current codex that has "[Unit Type] (Independent Character)." That's because Independent Character is a special rule, not a subtype. But this discussion is now moot because the rest of have been revealed, and as you say, Independent Character isn't among them.

So I have a (for fun) game this weekend where my opponent is bringing Guilliman and I am using my Stromsurge for the first time. I'd like to share with you the units that I have. Basically, I'm looking for tips and tactics on fighting him. Not sure of his list, he's not super competitive but plans on bringing a stormraven and another flyer. Playing at 2000pts.

I'm deathly afraid of flyers to so I planned on taking VT on my surge and broadside. Want to make sure I have enough to deal with them.

Units I own:
-Commander
-Fireblade
-Darkstrider
-Ethereal
-2x FW squads w/Fish
-14 Kroot
-10 Hounds
-All types of drones
-10 PFs (all MLs)
-3 Crisis (2x Plasma)
-2 Crisis (2x Melta)
-2x Stealth (all burst cannons)
-Riptide
-R'Varna
-Stormsurge (PDC)
-2 Misslesides
-1 Railside
-Hammerhead (rail and Longstrike)

Thanks in advance.
