OK, I have never heard of a "hidden powerfist" until i started reading on this site, especially in the tactics articles. Which I love.
I'm guessing it's a model that has bought a powerfist, but is not modeled with one.
Can someone pleae tell me what this is? And if it is what I said above, how do you get past someone claiming none WYSIWYG?
A "hidden powerfist" is a Power Fist on a squad sergeant in a squad. It is described as "hidden" because your opponent has to hack his way through the rest of the squad to get at it.
It's most effective with large Ork mobs or Lost and te Damned mutants.
Hope that helps.
Hidden powerfist does follow WYSIWYG.
It works by having a veteran sergeant (or equivalent) in a unit.
Now as he cannot be picked out in combat if you suffer any casulaties you simply remove other models (assuming they aren't all killed).
That means an enemy has to chomp through an entire squad to stop the powerfist from striking and this is usually very hard.
 Damn, Robizzle beat me
