I was watching a game being played the other day and noticed that this one guys terminators vet sargent had a master crafted assualt cannon. When i asked him how he had pulled it off he said that when he bought his assualt cannon he gave it to his vet instead of a regular guy and then paied the points to make a weapon master crafted. I didnt say anything at the time because it wasnt my game and i didnt want to waist time arguing with the guy but im still not seeing how he can do it.
1. i think the rules for terminators tell you that they come with power weapon and strombolter.
2. my understanding of the rules for master crafted weapons are that they are counted on top of the cost of the weapon "from the wargear section" and i dont see assualt cannons in the wargear section.
Can't do it. Guy's clearly a dick.
Special weapons in a Terminator squad are given to the Terminators, who have the statline of and are referred to as "Terminators" whereas the Sergeant has the statline of and is referred to as the "Sergeant." It clearly states that only the Terminators may upgrade to an assault cannon, and only the Sergeant has access to the Armoury. The Terminator and the Sergeant are two clearly distinct and separate entities.
You can, however, give him a cheaper chainfist, as the reference to Terminator chainfists says "any model with a power fist" and the Sergeant can buy a power fist, at a slightly cheaper cost than an IC. This is a neat loophole for saving 10 points by upgrading to a chainfist rather than purchasing one from the Armoury. You can master-craft it too, if you want.
You should go slap him with a codex the next time you see him. He's clearly exploiting the assault cannon. Does he also field a lot of LST's?

lol yea he is cheating but in reality i dont see why a commader or seargeant couldnt just grab an assault cannon...itll be so cool lol. I guess it kinda hard to play warhammer without anyone cheating or misinterpreting the dam rules though. Best to know the basic rules of all the codexes ><
Wouldn't a master-crafted assault cannon be great! Unfortunately the only thing a Terminator Sergeant can master-craft weapons-wise is his power sword or stormbolter (which he comes with) or any other weapons to which he has access through the Armoury.
