Hi, just a quick question: in matched play, do you think is it acceptable to deliberately take an understrength unit? (pag.242)
For example, 4 incubi (paid as if they were 5) in order to fit them in the same transport with an archon.

Strike FAST! Strike FIRST! Strike HARD!

From a rule as written perspective, if you physically don't ha e the model with you (left at home), it sounds like that is an option.

I suspect a lot of events will say it isn't ok. But this will likely be event/location specific.

Not sure why anyone would object to their opponent paying for a full strength unit and actually using less models than permitted.


You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?

I know I wouldn't complain about an opponent handicapping himself point wise.

I could see it being a problem if it allowed a unit in a transport to make room for more characters to make a mobile deathstar style unit, but they do handicap themselves points wise to get this. Though I can imagine there's some fringe cases where whatever benefit you gain greatly outweighs the loss of one squad member. Personally I'd be fine with it though.
