Played against a chap today who claimed that because he was taking the Gladius SF with 2 Demi Companies, all the units in the Demi Companies have Objective Secured.

I looked through the rules, and nowhere under the GSF do I see such a benefit conferred.

Under Demi Company, I see a definition of the Objective Secured rule, but I have as yet been able to find any text that says all units (and vehicles) in the formation have this rule.

Can someone point me to actual text that says so?


.Only a fool believes there is such a thing as price gouging. Things have value determined by the creator or merchant. If you don't agree with that value, you are free not to purchase.

See the rules for Formations in the rulebook. The special rules apply to the whole formation.

Who do you think the ObSec rule does apply to in a Formation?

From the BRB:
Formations are a special type of Detachment, each a specific grouping of units renowned for their effectiveness on the battlefields of the 41st Millennium. Whilst some Formations provide you with all the gaming information you will need to use them in your games, it is not uncommon for them simply to describe a number of special rules that apply when you include several specific units together. Instead of including a Force Organisation chart, the Army List Entries that comprise a Formation are listed on it, along with any special rules that those units gain.

So every unit in Battle Demi-Company has Objective Secured.

Every unit has Obsec, which the actual formation rule implies, and the BRB clearly states all the units get.
