Ok so first question after reading mercs when i hit the rhulic jacks it has the clause that says only Rhuls can use rhuls and that got me thinking...
First can a merc like Magnus take a mariner?
Were in the rulebook (if i could get the page number) does it say like a protectorate caster cant take a merc jack? I know that they can't... right?

Magnus can take a Mariner.
... Battlegroups are restricted to same-faction models ... though I don't have easy access to a rule right now (old MkII beta PDF lacks one).

after a bit more of a search:


Mercenary warjacks can be controlled and reactivated only by mercenary warcasters and ’jack marshals. By the same token, a mercenary warcaster or ’jack marshal can control and reactivate only mercenary warjacks.

also pg 38

"to create an army, first choose a faction and decide on an encounter level, then spend the alloted army points to add models and units from your chosen faction and the mercenaries who will work for that faction"

emphasis mine - warjacks fit under that "models" section

Yup, the rules quotes above, from pages 38, 83 (ooh, a palindrome! Coincidence, or conspiracy?) should cover it.
