Hey! The HQ can provide a modifier to Recon, but that is considered an action by the HQ and it can't then do anything else for the turn. In the case of Rally, it just needs to be adjacent to the rallying unit to give the modifier, but that's not an action for the HQ and it can go ahead and do something else later in the turn (or already have done an action). It's just the HQ's presence for the Rally that helps the unit, the HQ isn't really doing anything.
I hope that helps.
Hey Herm, thanks for taking the time.
I'm a bit confused now, since the Errata file implies differently. Could you perhaps elaborate a bit?
15. Same question for Recon. Does adding the HQ bonus count as the HQ action?
- No, they can provide the modifier and then Move.
