I think what the rule is saying is that if your army takes any units from Liskar, at least one has to go in the Liskarchon's command. If you don't take any Liskar units, the rule has no effect. Yes, he could be taken on his own, and he could have Gorgonares/Hydrares in his command. Hey RM, thanks f...

Heyho,

It seems like the action matrix allows recovering after walking, and no further actions and thus seems to contradict the Recover Action-paragraph which allows walking, running etc. before and after the recover action). Which one is correct?
