Yes (please explain why)
No (also please explain why)
Our head honcho at the local club doesn't think they stack.
His reasoning is that it clearly states that the Flaming attribute does not apply on magic weapons (for a character that is in the unit with the Flaming banner).
But I see allot of people using the Banner on Knights (without lances) to hunt down regenerating monstrosities.
Is this legal? I mean, do you get the benefits from both things? (+1str, magical attacks and flaming).
What is the reasoning that is does work?
So I can bring it back to our shop and clear this matter up.
I would say that the Enscorcelled weapons are simply weapons that grant +1 str and count as magical attacks (similar to the Yhetees ice weapons).
But not magic weapons per sé.
Well, the wording on the army book would suggest he is correct - "Enscorcelled Weapons count as magical weapons... etc."
But could you direct me to where it says a character wielding magical weapon cannot benefit from the Banner of Eternal Flame?
EDIT: Oh, I found it: "any spells cast by the model are unaffected, as are attacks with magic weapons they might be wielding."
So, I'm sorry but I'm afraid Chaos Knights with Enscorcelled Weapons cannot benefit from the Banner of Eternal Flame. If you wan't flaming Knights, you have to take Lances unfortunately.

The army book says "count as magical weapons." The fluff also says they have some magical power. So I would say that negates using the banner with them. If it had said they count as magical attacks then you could have got around it.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
