    SB and attacks?

    OK, reading up on the codex, thinking about starting a DH army to complement my SM crew, and I'm a little confused.

    Never used the True Grit trait on my SM, but it says all GK have it, so they can carry a storm bolter as, essentially, a one-handed item, meaning they SHOULD have a stock 2 cc attacks with their NFW, but no attack bonus on the charge, right?

    Ok, so why does the GK profile only show one attack, while in weapons it plainly says, "Storm bolter and nemesis force weapon." Shouldn't that be TWO attacks? :wacko:

    It should really read 1+1. that's the standard format for these things.

    Anyway, that is their unmodified profile, so with two hand weapons, they get 2 attacks, as you said.

    It's just that some of them carry weapons which aren't storm bolters, so if you put the attacks in the profile as 2, then people could claim an extra attack with their special weapon marines as well. Which would be cheaty.

    Ah, yes, that makes sense, thanks. So one more thing: What about GK that carry special weapons (incinerator or psycannon)? Do they lose that extra attack? I assume the termies don't.

    Grey Knight true grit only applies to Power-Armored Grey Knights, not terminators. The ability allows them to have an extra attack when not charging when they are armed with nemesis force weapons and storm bolters. They only show 1 attack on their profile because that shows an unmodified profile, same reason marine sgts. don't show an extra attack for a bolt pistol/chainsword combo. If a GK takes a special weapon, either a psycannon or an incinerator, he loses true grit (because he doesn't have the nemesis force weapon and the storm bolter) and the strength bonus.

    The gey knightsd have a base of 1 attack, the true grit adds one attack, they do not add it to the profile because the grey knights do not get 2 attacks if they have a aspecial weapon like a psycannon. The special wepons grey kngiths have a base 1 attack plus the charge bonus. If there was 2 attacks on the profile the special weapons guys would have 2 base attacks and 3 attaks when charging! Understand? That would be crazy powerful.
