    Now perhaps i'm a lil off on this. but i think i've found a way to give our lil Acolytes expensive weapons...

    Acolytes can only have up to 15 points of wargear. so this means you cannot purchase expesive weapons like powerfists, thunderhammers or psycannons... however...

    if you read the definition of "Master Crafted" (i prefer the definition in IG dex because it doesn't use a 15pt weapon as an example) you should note the line "the upgrade cost of 15 points is added to the normal cost of the weapon but only the upgrade cost is taken against the points limit on the wargear taken by a model ( so a master-crafted power weapon costs 20 points (15+5) but counts as only 15 points against a character's Wargear limit).


    so this leads me to believe that technically Acolytes could be using powerfists. granted this means you'd be reducing the number of StormShield acolytes, but you'd be gaining hidden powerfists...

    again, please point out any errors!


    edit: duh, only termies can have chainfists lol

    it says they can take "15 points of equiptment fom the daemonhunters armory" not 15 poits of wargear, and as far as rules go it would not work as chainfists can only be taken by terminators but you could take a mastercrafted evicorator instead, however this is certainly not in the spirit of the rule.

    Lord_magnus is right, the book says DH Armoury, not wargear.

    BoxANT, you seem to be on something. The question is in what order do you buy things? If you have to actually BUY the weapon, THEN buy the upgrade, I'd say you can't (as you'd be BUYING a 30pt weapon THEN MC'ing it). That would limit you to a 15pt weapon + mastercrafting, which is still nice, but not as obscene as your idea (6 powerfists in a squad&#33. I'm really not sure. It's a sneaky loophole, if it's legal. I'd check with GW on this one.

    Myself, I'm sticking to just giving them protective gear ^_^

    someone at HBMC on Dakka pointed out, that you get 15 point of equipment. that is everything total.

    a mastercrafted weapon counts towords the wargear limit, but just the 15 points to MC something. weapons don't count towords the wargear limit (the character is just limited to 2 of them). but you still gotta pay for the MC cause it's equipment.

    so no, the acolyte could not take a 25pt thunderhammer and a 15pt MCing... cause it would be 40 points of equipment... despite being only 15pts of wargear... hehe


    oh well, it was a cool idea while it lasted...

    Haha, I had a similar idea the other day while daydreaming in phsyics class. Thought about tooling out an IG command squad with 5 power weapons (JO, 4 vets). Got home, checked the codex, saw that veterans in command squads couldn't have power weapons. D'oh.

    ...huh?

    aren&#39;t "equipment limit" and "wargear limit" terms that are used interchangably?

    when is something one but not the other??

    no, equipment consists of weapons and wargear. weapons are not wargear, but both are equipment.

    so when someone has a wargear limit, they don&#39;t have a limit on their weapons?

    hmm... I guess this is the result of some confusion on my part, thanks for correcting me. gonna hafta go through a few codecies again with that in mind...
