Ok got some questions. Noise Marine Retinue, One Emperor’s Children Decadent Lord character upgrade, six Noise Marine units and a Daemonic Pact. So is that 6 stands and the decadent lord is with one of them? or does the lord get his own stand?
This one seems to come up with just about every army
. The Character is added to a base and his abilities are on top of what that base provides. So in total, just 6 bases, with one modelled to have the Decadent Lord.
Next question, this concerns the same unit. Assault Walkers, Dreadclaws, Favoured of Slaanesh, Apostate of Rapture, Degenerate, Predators, Transport. If i buy an Apostate of Rapture and a degenerate do they have to be based with the lord stand? or can they be on their own noise marine stands, so i can spread them out so if the lord dies they don't all die?
What would be considered standard with those that are familure with the list?
You are welcomed to base them on different stands or on the same. It is totally up to you. Other than to gain the 'Fearless' trait on the Apostate, there is no reason that I can see why you would not place them all on separate bases.
For character upgrades like this (no Speed, AR, CC or FF stat line) in any list, you can safely assume that you can upgrade any of the stands unless the rules for that list specify otherwise (such as cannot upgrade and upgrade). This list does not have any of those restrictions.
I hope this helps and thanks for looking. Please let me know if you try the list and how you found it.
