I have a question about the pets/companions that certain heroes can take. That include the Beast Companions of the Beast Champion and the Mutated Pet Rat of the Ratmen Warlord.
Are they simply bonus attacks or are they actual models ? In the second case, do the hero works as a multiple model unit if you buy them ? The pets dies automatically from the first wounds receive by the unit?
Things like pets, companions, and birds of prey are extra attacks. Though best represented with a model, they are not actually there as far as the game is concerned. They can't be targeted and do not count as a part of the Hero. Essentially they are just a token. You can even model them on the unit's base if that makes it easier to remember. 🙂
