Special Lieutenant Order

From Infinity Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Lieutenant of each army has a special extra Order that is for his use only. This Order is not included in the Order Pool, but kept separate for the Lieutenant to use.

The Special Lieutenant Order has special applications that can be very helpful, but using it broadcasts who the Lieutenant is in your Army List, giving your opponent a clear potential target. Use it judiciously.
Only units and Special Characters with a Lieutenant option on their trooper profile are available as Lieutenant when building an Army List.

Some Special Characters provide your army with extra SWC points (+1, +2...), but only when they are fielded as your Lieutenant.



The Special Lieutenant Order is represented by a Special Lieutenant Order (LIEUTENANT) Marker.

The status and expenditure of the Special Lieutenant Order is Open Information. Players must place their Special Lieutenant Order Markers where all players can see them.
