    This may be covered in a topic before, but since I can’t get the forum system to search for it, I’m asking about the War Dogs.  Specifically, if you choose to have 2 or more teams, do they have to stay within 1 inch of each other, or can they spread out over the table?  Also, with the extra selection attribute, does that mean you can get a War Dog team on any army list if you have a Marine squad, not just Empires in Flames scenarios?

    It’s a unit of 1 dog handler with an option to add up to 3 more handlers to that unit, so they would all have to remain in formation.  It doesn’t have a multiple selection special rule allowing you to field a number of units in a single slot (eg: US MMG team, Soviet AT teams, Japanese Suicide AT).

    The extra selection provision under selectors is purely to create a slot for this unit rather than have it take an existing slot.  ‘Any reinforced platoon’ would include the generic reinforced platoon so long as you include the necessary Marine unit.
