Hi all,

I know the current Codex has a few things. However, do we have anything specific for them? I managed to grab a few units and would like to run them.

Thanks.

The latest Codex has Armageddon Steel Legion as one of the Regimental Traits, complete with Relic and Strat.

Steel Legion is one of the regiments you can choose. It's in the current Codex.

Thank you and please pardon my newbie question but I did notice that the Steel LEgion Infantry set has a grenade launcher. Also, there is one dude holding a shell and another a rocket launcher. I am assuming that the latter two is my heavy unit and can be part of that unit on a 60mm base. Correct?

Yes, those 2 can be mounted on a 60mm; they were made when the rules had the models on 25mm, and the HW on another 40mm. There are official steel legion mini and 3rd party steel legion like models from madrobot miniatures.

It's not until I went to pick up a photo that I realised the GW official webstore photo for the Steel legion Squad still shows them as separate models on 25mm bases.

The missile launcher team should be on a 60mm base as per the photos of the plastic Cadian sets.

My older teams are still on 25mm bases but for games I place them and the weapon onto a 60mm mdf base. I find it better for storage in figure trays.

Thanks for the info. I will be swapping out all the cadians I recently got for these cool new metal figures. Out of curiosity, any recos on where I could view some good solid SL army lists? I have now about 80 new Steel legion figures.

And GW has them up for sale right now. I wonder how long given their popularity.

Is that something that's stipulated in the Codex...? I thought the official stance was to use what the model is provided with. Not that anyone would mind putting them on a 60mm base, I daresay - but I wouldn't want to be the guy trying to argue that they shouldn't be on 25mm's, if that's what was in the box.

Well they are declared a heavy weapon team of two. Much like the heavy team models you can purchase (2 guards and a 60mm base).

In current rules they’re one model with W2.

And if GW puts 40 mm square bases in the box by mistake (I had this happen once) you will argue the squad should be mounted on them, no exceptions?

Models should be on what modern equivalent is, and if anything, 'that guys' are the people offering lame/weak excuses why their army is mounted on tiniest bases possible, totally not done that for advantage, honest guv (even though you know these models were bought last week and last time GW sold them with tiny bases was two decades ago). All HWTs sold in last 15 years got 60 mm bases, so that's what you use, if only as a courtesy to opponent so they can clearly identify your units. None of that 'gotcha' BS thatguys love possible with models masquerading as something else.

This is of course 100% observably not correct.

I'm generally pretty relaxed about basing issues, but given that in the current rules the heavy weapon team is literally one model, it would be rather bizarre to represent it with two different models on separate bases. It might lead to some rules weirdness or at least be very confusing.

Only the insane have strength enough to prosper. Only those who prosper may truly judge what is sane.

Ruleswise, a HW team is one big guy with 2 wounds, standing on a 60mm base, wielding his Heavy Weapon in one hand and a Lasgun in another. So even if he's 1 wound down, you can still fire all his weapons and move his 60mm base around. If he loses his second wound, he counts as one lost model in regards to the morale phase.
Treating him as 2 models on 2 different bases would screw with that.
