I'm brand new to the game, trying to get a group of my friends together to play so I'm reading through the rules becuase more then likely I'll be the GM so you'll probably see me on here a lot, ha.
My openning question is do you have to buy skills that you already start with? An example would be in the First Founding book a character from the Ravenguard chapter can buy both Concealment and Silent Move for 200xp each (pg 18) but in the core rule book it says Space Marines start the game with both skills at the trained level (pg 36). Another example of this is that Apothecaries in the corerule book start with Medicae at the trained level but he can also buy Medicae at Rank 1 for 400 xp (pg 69). It doesn't say +10 or anything (which comes at Rank 2) so what would be the point of buying it again? If they do have to re-buy these skills can you give a reason and maybe a pg # to point it out to me.
Another question is can Ravenguard characters take his free Tactics (choose one) skill as his chapter's Tactics (Recon and Stealth)?
