A line in the Dwarf Army Book confused me. I'm very new to Warhammer (As I started as a 40K one.) so I don't know exactly what it's referring to. The line is, aprox., "Adding a rune to a weapon makes it lose and benefits or penalties the weapon normally incures."
Does that mean Great weapons don't give they're bonuses, and basically every weapon is just a generic hand weapon Plus the rune bonus? It's probably a stupid question but I'm not sure what else they would be referring to, since I don't know of special weapons besides generic ones (like Great weapons.)
Edit: Also, can they be on Ranged Weapons?
edit 2: Can I have a master Rune and a normal rune on a weapon? The weird way they present the rules on these runes is confusing me... X__X

A great weapon would lose it´s +2 strenght and always strike last bonus/penalty.
A hand weapon in conjunction with a shield would not give a parry bonus anymore
A warmachine doesn't lose anything.
They cannot be inscribed on missile weapons like handguns and crossbows. The runes can only be inscribed on which category of item they belong ( weapon, armour, banner, talisman, warmachine )
Yes, you can have a master rune and normal runes on a weapon together. You cannot have 2 masterrunes on a weapon and you cannot use the same masterrune multiple times.
Hmm, I thought I was wrong when I thought that Sword and Board and 2H weapons stopped working. Interesting.
Thanks for clarifying on the missile weapons. It's confusing because I didn't know if they considered Handguns Weapons when it came to runes... And the line that says "Apart from Master runes ... other runes can be combined as you wish." Anyway, thanks for Clarifying... Final question, Which edition is the Dwarf Book published in?
