I think I'm understanding this right, but I wanted to make sure. When I use his power sword, it strikes at his base initiative with his base number of attacks, but when I use the Gauntlets of Ultramar then he stikes at initative 1 with +1 attack, right?

ye thats right.
No that's not correct. Big Rule Book pg 42, under the heading Two different special weapons: "When it is there turn to attack, these models must choose which weapon to use that turn, but may never gain the bonus attack for using two weapons (such is the penalty for using too many complex weapons)."
Marneus has two different special weapons (powerfists and power sword) and so never receives a bonus attack for having the extra powerfist.
and in addition to that he has other weaponry...in the prementioned example a powersword which a normal close combat weapon gives a +1 attack to, however he doesn't have one of those and so loses the bonus attack.
Dear Game Designer,
Rock is Cheese. Paper is fine.
yes calgar has a pair of powerfists and they give +1atack ur example is if he just had 1 powerfist then he would have to choose between that and his power sword and either way wouldnt get +1atk
Sweet. Thanks for the quick responses.
Marneus will have to choose between his gauntlets (which are a pair of power fists and would grant him the bonus for attacking with two close combat weapon) or his powersword (in which case he won't get the bonus because he is not armed with two close combat weapons).
The only benefit of using the powersword is striking at high initiative.
Damn I should have remember to do this in the game I just played... not that it was really an issue when you have Calgar with 5 Terminators with Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields... casualties just didn't happen!
