    Master Crafted Weapons

    So I'm working on a new 1500 list and I got a couple of new models so I'm looking in the 4th ed codex to get the lowdown on them when I see the Master Crafted Weapons entry and I read it for about the 20th time, but this time something jumps out at me-

    There doesn't appear to be any restriction, other than grenades, on master crafted weapons.

    So I can master craft bolters for a point a piece?

    Think about this for a second... say I've got a plain jane tac squad that's basically around to take secure and control points or whatever. Say it's a 7 man squad, and the sarge is T.Hon-ed and PF/BP-ed as per usual- so I've got six guys with bolters. I add another 6 points to that squad and now this squad gets 12 rapid fire shots, with up to 6 re-rolled misses? For six measly points?

    Is this legal? I can't see any reason it wouldn't be. If it is, why don't more people do this??? Seems like a very good payoff to me. Am I missing something here?

    We all carry on,
    When our brothers in arms are gone.
    So raise your glass high
    For tomorrow we die,
    And return from the ashes you call.

    Ummm ya you are missing a lot. first of all how do you figure a master crafted weapon is 1 point. second you have to have terminator honours to access the armoury. In a normal tac squad you can't give everyone terminator honours. even if you could that would make each marine 45 points totally not worth it.

    My bad, forget it.

    I was reading the entry, not the wargear listing.

    Master Crafted weapons cost 15 points plus the original cost of the weapon.
    I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.

    Librarian Augustine and LordCreampuff are both correct. It would be a huge waste of points even if you could give a whole squad master crafted weapons.

    Yeah, I realized that. Hence the post above that says "My bad, forget it."
