I've looked in my small rulebook but couldn't really find anything about it, so might just as well ask here. Can I give my thane both a great weapon and a runic hand weapon?
I was thinking about a cheap rune weapon to kill monsters while not sacrificing viability against normal rank and file, or enemy heroes. But it would mean my hero would only have strenght 4 against enemies with T4 or lower. So I wanted to make it a great weapon but because the combo is for small point matches, the master rune of kragg the grimm would already make it too expensive. So: Can I give my thane a great weapon and a runic hand weapon, and switch between both as needed ( obviously not switching in the same combat ) ?
shield, gromgril armour with rune of stone
hand weapon with rune of might and rune of fire
They cannot according to Dwarf Rulebook.
Page 43 - 2nd column, 1st paragraph under "Number of ruinic items"
Well technically you have that away. All models come with a hand weapon, and keep it unless an option displaces it for another item. But, the rules concerning magic weapons also apply to runic ones - as in if you have a magic (runic) weapons you must use it. Any non-magic weapons brought for the character would just be a backup in case the magic one was destroyed.
