Just a question, what the heck is the guy with the hands that look like flame throwers?? i thought he was the acolyte, if so what is he armed with ?? the armoury doesnt have flamers so what is he armed with ?? is it a mancatcher?? a brazier of fire ?? i havent got a clue plz help.
If you read the WH reference sheet, there's an entry for something called "Firearms". This is my best guess as to what the fellow you're referring to is armed with. The big problem, of course, is that through some oversight, GW neglected to put this weapon's point cost into the book (as best as I can tell).
They forgot to put in the points cost for the neural whip as well. I use the particular model as an acolyte with a mancatcher, until something better comes along (I think of mancatchers as a fire producing weapon that restricts movement rather than some sort of metallic flypaper).
Hey, thanks i guess your right about the "firearms" i never noticed it till now, its pretty bad that they can forget to leave out important thinks like points and descriptions.
I think that was deliberate. Only the Mistress gets them.Originally posted by idinos@Apr 30 2004, 18:23

And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
The model is indeed an acolyte and in relation to his weapons i don't really have a clue about what they could be but i don't think it's firearms. In the wargear list in CA 2003 their entry states that they are an array of different weapons froma simple club to a flamer but that 'in game' they count as a laspistol and close combat weapon. Somehow i don't think that will count as arms of fire.

Also remember that the Inquisiters wargear gan be modeled onto his henchmen. It could easily be an inferno pistol, but is more likely the Brazier of Holy fire.
Also, any item not in the Armoury list hasn't been forgotten. You just can't pick for your special characters unless it is said that you can in that items rules. An example of this used to be the Evixcerator. It used to only be available to redemptionist, and was described int he wargear section, but because it was not listed with a price it could not be taken by a special character. If an item is presented in chapter aproved however, then it is an exception.
Ok well considering how crappy the firearms stats kinda are i think that it is what the acolyte clearly has. also the brazier if fire is supposed to be on the chest not the arms
thats a Brassiere, not a Brazier.Originally posted by Grand Master Seth@May 2 2004, 16:51

A Brassiere is a womans undergarment, supporting breast, or bra.
A Brazier is a pan for burning charcoal or coals; or any brassworks.
While you could model a Brazier on their chest, there is nothing that says its supposed to be there. I would model mine to look like a brass censer on the end of a chain, so that it can be swung around in close combat like chain ball.
ok lemme clear something up............
i was lookin around in the WH codex and noticed that firearms are'nt a miss-print...
if you look at the adversaries rules in the WH codex it says under mutants thatthats what the entry in the referance sheet is there..........its for your adversaries when they are using adverseries rulesmutants are all alowed to replace their close combat weapons with firearms for no points cost
besides what they meant is firearms (you know G U N S!
and there ya go
you guys are'nt mixed up anymore
When cities burn and armies turn
and flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry 'tis best to fly
and fight another day,
But warriors know it in their marrow when they
die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost than not have
fought at all.
