ok, stupid question, but I'm confused. If my Striking Scorpion Exarch is assaulting with a Scorpions claw, Scorpion Chainsword, and Mandiblasters he gets 5 attacks right? Are all of those attacks delivered at initiative one, or 4 attacks at 5 and just the power fist at 1. Also I'm assuming that only one of his attacks gets the power fist bonus, right?
You get 4 attacks on the charge, 3 attacks the rest of the time, all at S6, I1
(clarification - all of your attacks are made with the power fist profile, you have 2 basic attacks, +1 from the mandiblaster, and +1 for charging. You do not get a second weapon bonus while using a power fist and chainsword)

Actually, your Exarch has a choice if he is armed with the weapons you mentioned. Both the Scorpion's Claw and the Scorpion Chainsword have special rules attached to them. Obviously the powerfist with its power weapon status and its much better strength value is probably going to be your first choice, but the Chainsword improves the user's strength slightly as well. Therefore you would need to choose which one you are going to use in each combat.
P.34 BRB, paragraph below the bullet points:You gotta choose!...use any special close combat attack [NB: singular] they have
"Tau Commandment #226: Participants who use Velocity Trackers in the Tau Clay Pigeon Tournament will be disqualified"
Also note that each turn you have to choose which special close combat weapon you wil use the scorpion claw or the chainsword.
Ok, thanks all, one follow up question. Do all of his attacks ignore armor saves when using the power fist?
When you choose one of the special close combat weapons all the models attacks that turn will be made with the chosen weapon, you choose powerfist all attacks are powerfists attacks.
