Ok, so a Space Marine Chapter Master is listed at 3 attacks. He comes with no gear. So I give him a Bolt Pistol and chainsword as his standard setup. The addition of the Close Combat Weapon kicks him up to 4 attks? Now I give him another CCW instead of the pistol, so he's at 5 attks? Then I hook him up with Termie honors or a Termie Suit. So 6 attks is possible? I feel like i'm missing something with this, that seems like a lot.
Here's the rundown;Originally Posted by slamfu
1) He has a basic number of attacks.
2) He may take two one-handed weapons (CCW or pistol). This gives him +1 attack for having an additional close combat weapon.
3) Terminator Honours then adds another attack.
So, he gets a total of +2 attacks to his basic number. If he charges, he gets another +1 for charge bonus, so +3 on the basic number of attacks when charging.
But a standard Marine has A1, and when he is given a boltpistol and chainsword setup that becomes A2. This does not also apply to HQ units?
you get 2 attacks because you have TWO close combat weapons or equivilants. Powerfist, pistols (all kinds), stuff like that count towards the 2.Originally Posted by slamfu
Dreams give us a vision of a world unlike any we have seen. They present us with a glimpse of a better life; a goal to aspire to, and in the face of insurmountable odds, they provide us with the power to overcome, to live on, and to succeed where we would have otherwise failed.
Ok, so say I give him a boltpistol and chainsword. Or better yet, pistol and Lightning Claw. He is now at 4 attks, with that pistol counting as a CCW? Do I get an additional attack if I upgrade him to Lightning Claw x2 or does he stay at 4 attks?
He will stay at four attacks.Originally Posted by slamfu
Also, you can't give him three weapons (i.e. two lightning claws and a pistol). He must be given either a single weapon (one or two handed), two one-handed weapons, or one two-handed and one one-handed weapon.
Having 1 Lightning claw and a pistol, will not confer an additional attack (BGB P 46). To get the 2 close combat weapon bonus, you must use the LC's as a pair.
master with a LC and a pistol 3 attacks
Master with 2 LC 4 attacks
and for claritys sake,
master with a LC, pistol, and Terminator Honours 4 attacks
master with 2 LC and terminator Honors, 5 attacks.
So how about regular Termies? Is one of their attks the storm bolter, and the other the Power Fist? I'd just assumed they were both Fist hits. I guess this applies for Vet Sgt. with fists/power weapons too.
Alright, in the case of a Terminator + Storm Bolter..Originally Posted by slamfu
They just use the Attacks in their profile. The Storm Bolter is technically a two-handed weapon so it cannot contribute +1 attack for being an additional CCW with the Power Fist.
For Vet. Sgt's with Power Fists/Weapons, then if you give him a Bolt Pistol or another CCW, he will get +1 attack for having an additional CCW.
I think someone missed your big error...when you replace the pistol with something your losing the pistol as a CCW and (likely) are gaining the second one as a CCW.
