Hi guys. I've played Wallace a couple of times now and have been thinking about the best way to protect him if you don't get first turn. Both times I used the castle Wallace method described by @daboarder in his excellent tactica. First game the PanO opponent didn't attempt to attack it, second game ko dali and a speculo managed to jointly kill Wallace, although it almost didn't work, cost both their lives and used all their orders to do it. So I can definitely see the merits of the tactic. Then I thought, if you get second turn and the opponent deploys first and you think an assassination run is likely. Why not keep wallace as your reserve and place him far away from the assassin model once it's been placed? Then I thought, linkteam rules say you form the team during deployment. Placing reserve models is still part of deployment. Can you keep Wallace, or any eligible model, in reserve and then place it in coherency with models it could legally form a link team with and form the team?
