Quick question on Support Weapons Empty

Just wanted to clarify something quickly regarding the rules for the Craftworld Support Weapons, as I've recently bought a Support Battery. I didn't realise (or maybe didn't notice) until now that I could put the second crew member on the platform, instead of on another base.

Does this mean I essentially ignore the little bits referring to the crew being 'within 1" of their support weapon'? I'm guessing that that particular line assumes you've built the second crewman separately.

Also, while I'm on the subject, how do you build your support weapons? Is the second crewman on foot, or placed on the platform? I'm assuming the latter is easier to transport (or at least, takes up less space), but how much more difficult does it become to paint this way? I've seen pictures of both methods in equal measure, and was curious as to your opinions/preferences.

Basically you just ignore the crew if they aren't on the same base.

Range and visibility are measured to the support weapon. Cannot allocate attacks to the crew. They are treated as a single model for all rules purposes.

You can put them on the same base if you like, or separately if you prefer. I don't own any, so can't comment on the modelling practicalities.

From a midnight sky, there is a searing flash, a boom, a brief moment of destruction, and then it is gone.
