Ok so I've taken the plunge buying an army.
Now my first query concerns formations and transports:
A ThunderHawk GunShip carries 8 stands or 4 stands of Termies/Dreadnoughts
As I understand it Dreaddies only figure in the lists as upgrades to tac/terms etc...but not as a detachment on their own?
So say I want to buy a Termie detach transported in Landspeeders I buy that and bob's your uncle. 4 stands, 2 landraiders.
Further to this can I attach a command stand to the termies in a Rhino and move these as a formation of 2 LR and 1 Rh til they deploy? Can I also attach a Vindicator to these as part of the formation?
Onto the thunderhawks...say I want to upgrade to max out the dreadnoughts, these cannot be carried in LR, right (EA Compendium p46)
However the Thunderhawk does carry dreadnoughts (p47) so can I have 2 termie stands and one dread in one THGS and two termies and a dread in another THGS? Or if I take the commander can I put four termies in one THGS and two dreads and the commander in another?
That'd mean I deploy two THGS in one activation dropping four termies, two dreads and one commander as a formation. Or is this illegal?
