If A model has a special weapon, do all his attacks get the effect??
Example: Eldar warlock with Witchblade(Power weapon and 2+ wounding) and suriken pistol:
One attack bacic
Plus one for two hand weapons
And lets say one for charging
How many would have the effect of the Witchblade??
For most special weapons you do not gain an extra attack if you have a pistol you only gain the extra attack if you have two of the same weapons. This applys to power fist, thunder hammers, lightning claws, and chainfist. But the witchblade does gain an extra attack if carrying a pistol or just a basic weapon. so you get +1 attack to your character profile. Also, both you attacks are witchblade attacks and the charging attack would be witchblade. You can find these rules in the BRB on PG. 42.

Cheers, ive always been confused about that, but those are the rules i was playing by.
Nice to know i was right
You gain +1 attack if you have two single handed CC weapons.
Example: marine with chain sword and pistol gets two attacks basic.
If you have a CC special weapon all your CC attacks are resolved with that weapons profile.
Example: marine with power sword and pistol gets two power sword attacks in CC basic.
Exceptions: Some weapons only give +1 attack if you have two of the same weapon, eg- power fists, thunder hammers and lightning claws. Also, some CC weapons are two handed weapons.
Example: marine with power fist and pistol gets one power fist attack basic.
Multiple special weapons: All CC attacks delivered by a model with two special weapons will will carry the profile of one of the special weapons.
Example: A captain with a power fist and a lightening claw can either attack with the power fist or the claw but not both at the same time.
While we're on the topic, Eldar Witchblades are not Power Weapons.
