Welcome to Librarium Online!
As much as I love the idea of a giant klaw crushing marines, or a blade swarming with energy, slicing through any armour - I can't help but feel that there are better alternatives for this?
When I look at a power sword I tend to "meh" a bit, but looking at a chainsword, even with its primitive use to me screams "power weapon!"
the same can be said for the huge big choppa axes from the new nob set, and even the ork chainsword so I was wondering if this could be used as count as in certain aspects or if anyone has done it before or even thought of it?
Klaws and swords are hard to come by, but chain weapons are everywhere.
People have thought of it before, and the consensus is usually split 50-50. I personally think chain swords are fine as power weapons. I mean really, If you are going to fight somebody, would you rather have a humming broadsword, or a chainsaw?
i think it's a perfectly viable idea. chainswords/axes look cool, and i read a bit of fluff once saying that they had an adamantium coating on the teeth of the blade. this sounds like it could cut through armour with ease
