Post subject:  Experience and LVL - some questions

Ok, so after reading the rulebook and having some games (a blast to play) I was thinking about using the advanced rules and upgrade some of my units with levels / use the level system ingame.... no that´s where the problems start:

first a quote of the rules from the download PDF rulebook:

Quote:
For every 10 Frags, the squad’s LVL is increased by one.
Levelling up means that a squad has gained enough
experience and its combat effectiveness therefore
increases. Veterans fight better and are more likely to
survive no matter what the next encounter may demand
of them.
The maximum number of LVLs available for the squad
is described in the relevant Faction Rules.
A Level provides the following benefits to Models:

Quote:
Squad Level Re-rolls/Game Turn Heal Value
2 1 -
3 1 Heal (6)
4 2 Heal (8)


So now when I have a squad of 5 marines lvl 3, they all get Heal (6) I guess, but what about the re-roll? Does every Marine get 1 re-roll? Does the Squad get 1 re-roll do use on any member? Do I as the player of the Squad get one re-roll?
I would go with the first option as that would be in line with the Heal skill granted by level.

So far so muddy ... no on to the Aliens:
Quote:
Hive Experience: The Aliens always start the game
at LVL 1. For every 10 Frags gained, the Hive (every
friendly Alien Model) Levels Up.


soooooo that means that all Aliens get a re-roll? The Squad (in this case the Hive) gets one re-roll? The Alien Player gets one re-roll (would be the same as option before)?

Since the rules at the beginning of the EXP rules talk about squad´s always and the List also talkes about squad level, I´m not sure if the re-roll bonus is per Squad (that would suck for the Aliens as they are basically one big Squad/Hive) or for every model contained in a squad .

Anyways, whatever the answer may be, I´m probably gonna stick with "Every Model gets the benefit" just to be in line with the Heal Skill and give the Hive a fair chance.

Every model gets the benefit as stated: " The maximum number of LVLs available for the squad
is described in the relevant Faction Rules.
A Level provides the following benefits to Models:"

So each model in the squad would gain the reroll and Heal 6/8 depending on level.

Thank you, I swear I´ve read the rulebook 5 times now and still find things I missed before :oops:
