Faction Doctrine question

Recommended Posts

Okay, here goes, for Mercs using Malvernis or Terran doctrines, they have to meet the equipment requirements. Okay, got that. Do they also have to meet building numbers in the construction of their forces? ie: 5 CAVS, or can they base it on 4 units? Thanks

I'm no expert but...

 

I don't think mercs get to use faction doctrines at all. Only the factions get them and they have to follow the faction build rules exactly.

Maybe I don't really understand the question...? Can you give more details?

 

Edit because research! :)

 

In the latest copy of the errata it says:

 

"For a faction-specifc force group wanting to use a faction
doctrine and remain “legal” for organized play, it must maintain
the force structure as detailed with each faction description (for 
example the Adon Economic Confederation, p. 70)."

 

I think you can make a Faction based force that doesn't use the specified force structure but they cannot take advantage of faction doctrines.

Basically, if you meet Faction requirements of issuing equipment, for example, using all Terran equipment, you can call your unit anything you want and still use Faction Doctrines. I am trying to find out if the number per squad has to be met as well.

Page #1 of the latest errata explains it pretty well. If you want to use the Faction Doctrines you have to play with the Faction unit structures. The only exception is a specialist squad.

This is correct.
