After reading through the codices and BRB, i haven't been able to find the answer to the question i'm about to ask, and if it has been asked and answered on the forum already, I apologize, as my search function is not working.
okay here's the question:
When a weapon type says something like Heavy 1 or Heavy 3, what do the numbers mean? is that how many attacks that weapon provides? or is it how many wounds it can cause? or is it just some arbitrary number to confuse the heck out of newcomers like me?
