I've been reading quite a bit of Scout Tactica, and one of the most popular techniques is a full squad armed with CCW/BP with a Scout Sergeant with Terminator Honors and a Power Fist. I've seen this technique suggested both here and by GW authors on their website.
The problem I'm having with it is it just doesn't feel right. Wouldn't a Power Fist require a power source capable of driving such a powerful weapon like a Marine Power Armor Backpack?
I'd really like to do this, but without being able to justify it via fluff logic, it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Thoughts?
Maybe the fist could have it's own power supply? The scout's arm isn't as big as the power armour gauntlet a full battle-brother. The extra space could be for a generator of it's own.
My theory solves evryon'es trepidation once again!

Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
Yeah, I suppose that explanation would work. I've been poking around at the idea of a Power Weapon instead, but we'll see...
You could always use a heavy bolter backpack, cut off the ammo feed line, and do some conversion with guitar wire or tubing to make power cables to the pack from the fist....?
I really dig that idea. I'll have to dig around my bits box to see if I can find something like that...
If you were to look at Guard, they have Officers that have power fists, the fist is not as insanely huge as the Marine ones and would look hench on a scout sergeant if you ask me.
It has its own small power supply in it already i believe.
If your scout squad has assautly weapons like BP+CCW or Shotties then go for it, it would only add to the carnage, inFACT i'm getting devious urges myself now.
BTW, does anyone use Shotties?
He is BetaMax, an obsolete format.
I think that Scout Shotguns have been widely accepted as the most worthless of all Space Marine weaponry. It's unfortunate, because I think they look quite sweet, actually. Regardless, I'd rather have my scouts getting their 2 attacks in a turn in CC instead of 2 shots as they charge in...
The heavy bolter backpack idea sounds pretty good. Or you could like cut a piece off of a space marine back pack and use that? I wonder if that would work?
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD LOOK AT MY BLOG!
Rep people if they help you!!!
i use a power fist with one of my scout sgts. fluff wise it could easily be a bionic arm with a high powered combat setting. i use an elysian power fist as the proportions seem better.
