If it's part of the formation, and it doesn't take much time, then yes, that is fine.

Matt, would I be correct in the assumption of the amalgamtion of new and old apocalypse rules? Also has anyone seen if there is a warlord titan in the new book.

No Warlord that I could find in the new book.

The warlord is iconic, though, so I doubt you would be turned away with the previous data sheet.
Former MWG Leland, now just regular, old Leland. Now with more grump!

To see what I am working on, check out my Facebook page at its new address Aegisbrand Studios or just search for Leland Martel

Under the Super Heavies section in the new book it says, "If you have an older book, you may find that your Super Heavy vehicles have Structure Points rather than Hull Points. If this is the case, each Structure Point the vehicle has simply counts as 3 Hull Points. So a Super-Heavy vehicle in an older book listed as having 3 Structure Points, now has 9 Hull Points instead."

Problem solved. Apply this accordingly for any unlisted Super Heavy including the Warlord

Ok so warlord has 27 HP, does gauss still affect them as normal? Also im curious as to if matt will put in the titans using the new damage tables.

Just wondering how Supplement Books will be treated. Would it count for another ally (Say if you have Iyanden and Eldar) or would it just filter under one choice?

If it is from the same army, then it is in the same army. If Iyanden is an Eldar character, then it wouldn't take up an allied slot.

Gauss and haywire affect super heavies. Only thing that doesn't is anything that would lower an armor value, pg. 66 Invincible Behemoth.

*edit* Ok so we are using the 5th ed super heavy damage table, but that still means that it can be glanced, so it would still affect them using that table.

That's using the new rules though, I believe we are using the older rules for this according to Matt, not the new ones, so since last year I think it was rules Gauss couldn't affect Super-Heavies that would still be the case.

Entropic Strike will lower armour on a 6+, not 4+.
Gauss will auto-glance on a 6 as usual.
