    TACTICAL WINDOW

    This Extra means the scenarios have a narrow window of insertion, with a tactical advantage, allowing for only small teams and a support group to be inserted into the zone of operations. So, players are not allowed to use Army Lists with more than 15 troops.


    Looks like Netrods and helper bots are classified as support troops in Army but are equipment. Puppets have no classification in Army. Proxies are classified as troops with G:Jumper.

    Helper bots aren't classified as equipment.

    It is the same as LI but 15 instead of 10. I think the general idea is easy to get.

    (i know, more specifically LI doesn't say 10 troops. It says 1 combat group. It is the combat group rule that says only 10 troops per combat group. So whatever count as 10 troops per combat group count as 15 troops per army list)

    It doesn't use the same wording.

    What about G:Synch, G;Servant, Antipode, AI Beacons, and Posthumans? As it stands these kind-of-sort of count as troopers sometimes.

    I had the same question, Until I hear otherwise I'm going on the basis that any model that generates any number of orders as troopers.

    G:Servants = 0 troops
    Scarface & Cordelia (2 models hired at the same time) = 2 troopers
    Peacemaker & Auxbot (G:Sync) = 1 trooper
    Netrods (AI Beacons) = 1 trooper
    Yuan Yuan (Irregular & Impetuous) = 1 trooper

    It's not the same wording as LI, but it is the same wording that restricts a combat group to 10.

    If models don't count towards the combat group limit then they don't count against this limit, either.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I found the post where someone quoted all the unit descriptions which say most G:Synch units count as one trooper.
