    Two Pistols and CC

    I'm probably going to take a member of my Grey Hunters with a Plasma Pistol and a Bolt Pistol but I'm wondering, what are the specific rules for this. I imagine I can only shot one or the other (anything else would be terrible) but can I use it as two close combat weapons?

    Both pistols are CCWs so you will still benefit from having 2 CCWs.

    Also yes you are correct that you can fire either weapon in the shooting phase but not both.

    Hi Mate,
    I agree here and just want to add that the extra attack here is achieved by having two ‘single’ handed weapons – not just two close combat weapons.

    Cheers.

    I see it as "I have two weapons but one is out of ammo". It helps me remember.

    Dark Eldar Punisher, Chaos Great Weapon are the 2 of the top of my head but seriously what kind of question is this?

    Don't play either of those armies so was unaware that such a thing existed. Just used to my codeci where all CCWs are defined as being one handed, and there is no such thing as a 2 hander CCW.

    Ok, how about an army that you do play, Eldar –
    1. Howling Banshee Executioner,
    2. Striking Scorpion Biting Blade,
    3. Warlock Singing Spear.

    Mate, what are you getting at here?

    Just not thinking clearly, don't mind me, been averaging 65 hour work weeks lately with bouts of 31 hrs straight.

    Just was thinking that those weren't classed as CCWs, just items/weapons that could be used in CC (whereas pistols are defined as being pistols, but "count as" CCW's for the purposes of 2 CCWs.

    Are you sure those are listed as 2 handed CCW's? or just 2 handed weapons?
