If you have been applying the same logic to ethereals and darkstrider, then not only are you playing it wrong, but your also selling yourself short of the only buffs we get.
Unlike maths, you cant add brackets into the English language. So its as its written.
Models in <SEPT> units within 6" of any friendly <SEPT> Cadre Fireblades [...]"
remove the keyword <SEPT> as thats only there to see if the model qualifies based on race.Models in units within 6" of any friendly Cadre Fireblades [...]"
only the unit
has to be within 6" of the fireblade, if this wasn't the case, then the word 'unit' is completely irrelevant. And it only has to be a single model, otherwise they would have included the word 'wholly within"
Models within 6" of .... only the model can qualify
Models in units within 6" of .... its the unit that qualifies.
It's a pretty open and shut case really.
Its both rules as written AND rules as intended. GW have stated that the rules are written to speed the game up as much as possible. Calculating how many models in the unit are within 6" every turn slows down the game. The same reason templates were removed.
