Post subject:  Rules clarification-1 in 5 rule for troops.

I have been in debate with a friend about the 1 in 5 rule-we'll use the Bauhaus Hussars as our subject.
You get 5 for the basic point cost of 80.Additionally,you can choose to add up to 12.1 in 5 can take a hmg.
I built a squad of 6-7 Hussars with 2 hmg's.
This is correct,is it not?? The way I see this is that 5 or any part thereof can purchase this upgrade while optimizing squad performance and keeping your unit manageable with terrain.Need your feedback...thanks!!!

I am certain that it is 1 MG for every 5 models actually in the unit. So a base squad of 5 dudes can have an MG and a Squad of 10 dudes can have 2 MG's.

I concur with Jim. 1 in 5, then 2 in 10. So you need 5 dudes to give 1 something. I understand where you are coming from but Jim hits the nail on the head.

1 in 5 means 1 for every 5 full models in the squad.

Thanks people.Glad to get that cleared up.It doesn't change my build strategy too much...but makes it a whole lot more expensive to field.

I searched for an answer but did not find one.
The squad upgrades of an armoured chasseur unit looks wierd.
squad size is 5-10 but the upgrades says it can take a further "up to 7 models"
otherwise the added weapon looks like a mistake when copying the squad upgrades and than missing to change some of the items.
Can the armoured chasseur squad take one Rocket Launcher regardles of models? no HMGs? LMGs?
While all the other megacorps seem to be able to take a number of special weapons acording to squad size.

Happy for answers :)

This has been edited for the final book.

up to 5 may be added.

1 in 5 may take a 'Special Weapon'. Use the points listed that you have.
