it says when put on something with daemonic stature it counts as one-handed, does that mean i get +1 attack for haveing a Kai Gun+ a power weapon?
What else would that mean? It is a massive boltgun, but a daemon prince is bigger than a lord so can hold it easier. To be fair, a Kai gun would be better on a havoc AC in a rhino with 4 plasma guns next to him. DPs are generally meant for combat rather than shooting.
And why would you want a power weapon on a monstrous creature?
thank you and good night
That's an outstanding idea!Originally Posted by monsieurcartier
I think I will use that in my next list.
Thanks for the heads up.
Really? I though people were doing this everywhere. This isnt really a new tactic, and although it does work a few times people get the idea and it ends up becoming an every-now-and-again surprise tactic rather than a staple part of your army.Originally Posted by Joker
I generally have only one opponent, especially since the gaming center we used to play at closed down.Originally Posted by monsieurcartier
He plays orks so any strategies or tactics I get that aren't mine personally, I get from LO, WD, and other online sites.
So if it's new to me, it's almost 99.9% likely it's going to be new to him.
Anything that makes his orks unhappy will make me very happy!
Plus even if it is an 'in and out of style' type of tactic it's at least something I'm now aware of if I ever get off my butt and start heading to the major and minor tournaments around me.
Got any more gems you want to pass along?

Hey,Originally Posted by monsieurcartier
Why Plasguns? I'd have thought it was better matched with AC-armed Havocs.
I would like to take this opertunity to say that you are all wrong.
just because a Kai gun becomes 1 handed, does not give it the pistol ability. It's the pistol part that gives the extra atack, not the one-handed part.
besides, kai gun is better in HB havoc squads, at least against orks.
12 HB shots
2 Kai gun shots
an average of 8(!) dead orks a turn.
against a buggie/trakk/trukk
12 HB shots
2 glancing shots, 1 pen
Kai gun isn't even need here.

A chainsword is one handed but that isnt a pistol is it? What you've just said is complete nonsense, Cypher. And what is this pistol ability you speak of? If you mean the type, they are only given for ranged weapons. What about Close combat weapons? So no, we are not wrong, you are.
Also, I said to use plasma guns because I also use them in a rhino. You can't shoot a heavy bolter or an autocannon if you jump out of a rhino on that turn. Plasma guns get just as many good shots as autoncannons if you don't take range into account. And will wound&kill more often than a heavy bolter. Not much, but still do.
