Quick question ladies and gents:
From a chaos or SMurf perspective - I want to give my lord 2 CCWs - am I allowed? I know you could direct me to the part of the codex that says "only one of each item.." however - how difficult can it be to give him another simple knife rather than a Demon weapon/power sword.
Please give your verdicts on this question.
Of course you could, but you wouldn't. A second CCW is the same point cost as a bolt pistol. If you wanted to do it for fluff I don't think you would find any who would object as both options give you the bonus dice but the two CCW's don't let you shoot. So it actually disadvantages you.
In an hour of darkness a blind man is the best guide. In an age of insanity look to the madman to show the way.
that is true, unless you give your Chaos Lord something like Daemonic Fire or (if he's a sorcerer) Doombolt, or for your Loyalist Librarian Storm of the Emperor's Wrath, Fury of the Ancients or Vortex of Doom; then he has a "shooting" attack plus twin CCWs

I'm thinking mainly of my chaos lord who has stature. Statured lords can only be armed with certain stuff - CCW OK, bolt pistol not OK. That is the problem
So, is 2xCCW allowed or will I have to fork out for more expensive weapons for the +1 attack?
It sounds like you want to keep down the cost of your Chaos Lord. 2 ccws are a good idea! With Demonic Stature (Monterous Creature) your attacks ignore armor saves, so its like having a pair of power weapons. If you want any shooting ability you would have to take Demonic Fire, its like having a storm bolter, plus keep the 2 ccws.Originally Posted by buzzin_yoof
No model is allowed to take a single piece of Wargear more than once unless specifically stated that they can. For example, Chaos Hounds are the exception as you may have up to four of them, though you can't have more than one set of bionics.Originally Posted by buzzin_yoof
Weapons are not Wargear. They don't have the same restrictions, so it is legal to take 2x CCW on a single model.
Thanks a lot for your input guys. I think this in particular sums it up.Originally Posted by Caluin
