Deployment Order of Units within a Helix

Recommended Posts

Pre Game Sequence section F, p. 46 subsection 3 states that "Squadrons MUST deploy in coherency with at least one Model in Command Radius of their Commanding Element [snip]".

 

This implies without specifically stating that a Helix's Command Element unit needs to be deployed first in order to be on the tabletop for the Command Radius measurement to be made for the rest of the Helix's units.

 

Is this correct?

a nasty trick i found out the other day was my dindrenzi foe had a core and rsn helix i had a core, terquai and support helix. i could put the terquai flyer on then he had to deploy his whole core helix. giving me the ability to see where all his on board stuff was starting before i place nearly all my units. how your helixes are formed can be just as critical as winning the roll.

does the command distance only apply during deployment and no other time during the game?

 

i.e. once deployed elements of a helix may move out of the command radius of its command element?
