If someone (anyone) is carrying just any weapon and a storm shield, do they still get they +1 attack for having 2 CC weapons???
If not, please make the Storm Shield/Thunder Hammer rules clear (I know what they do; just about the number of attacks please).
"And whoever wants to be a creator in good and evil, must first be an annihilator and break values. Thus the highest evil belongs to the greatest goodness: but this is--being creative."
~ Friedrich Nietzsche ~
"Q. A Storm Shield is not used to gain +1 Attack, right?
A. That is correct. It is only a defensive item. It is on the single-handed weapon
list (and not wargear) to make sure that people do not take a pistol, a
chainsword, AND a storm shield"
No, it is in the Q&A as stated above, in the Space Marine Codex, and there have been many Topics about it. So no, you do not get +1 attack for having a Storm Shield and another One Handed Weapon.
I also had the idea of changing my assault squad taking out the bolt pistols and geting shields (because of the new rules shooting/+1 attack on cc) but if that is so them my Black Templars will probably stay the same... that's a shame...
I dont see why they cannot use a small shield like that in close combat. They (especially assault terminators) could probably smash an enemy a pretty good blow when trained in the proper use of them (much like crusaders from the witchhunters codex)
You know what they say, if you dont like the weather in houston...go back to where you came from
I completely agree, IMO both the power weapons and storm shield "force field" is the same to counter act each other so why not use the one surrounding the storm shield??????
maybe It'll be changed in the new rules (I hope so anyway my thunder hammer assault marines would just be so much better! if a crusader can do it... we cant a terminator?
