Relics in mixed Battlions

Postby Wynce » Wed Jan 01, 2020 3:14 pm

Hey guys,
Rules question, if I am running a battalion of Space Wolves and a battalion of Salamanders can I give a relic to each battalion? According to Battlescribe I have to take a warlord for each battalion to get a relic (which I can nor).

You would pick your warlord of the entire army, and whatever faction he is, gets the free relic. Then, you would have to spend CP to give different relics to the other faction from their codex stratagem.

I.E. Salamanders + Space Wolves.
Salamanders has your Warlord
You would get your free relic for Salamanders, then use the Space Wolf "Give another relic to a guy" stratagem to get a SW relic.

Curious why you decided to mix batallions I would be hard pressed to run any allies if it cost me doctrines as a loyalist player. But as for the question, Spencer is right, your warlord gets a free relic, if you want additional relics you need to pay CP for whichever factions "relic stratagem" you plan on taking a relic from.

I don't have enough points of space wolves to run alone. That's the only reason
