    pistols fire howmany times a turn?

    The new rules vs old rules confuse me. I have a pistol wielding warband, and I have the old book. But we use the new rules.

    My question is really just this:
    Can I have a guy with two pistols that he can fire each turn?
    ei, turn one, fire both pistols. Turn two, reload and fire both pistols again.

    I'm inclined to say no, but the fact that you can reload and fire in one turn if you have only one pistol puts me to doubt.
    If I can't fire both pistols every turn, I don't really see the pro's outweighing the con's tbh.

    My WoC assembly/paint log! check it out. UPDATED 03-11-'11!
    Check out my guide on how to make Treekin.
    Please feel free to correct my spelling.

    If I'm not mistaken, having one pistol only lets you fire every other turn, whereas two pistols lets you fire one pistol per turn.

    Thank for the reply!

    but, I ment when the skill Pistolier is in effect. I don't have the book handy so I can't quote it.

    Ah. If I interpret the skill right, if you have a brace of pistols you may indeed fire both pistols, but you could not shoot in the subsequent turn "(though note that normal reloading rules apply)" p.83.

    So, one pistol -> fire every turn.
    Two pistol -> fire one pistol every turn or fire both every other turn.

    I think the pros for a model with one pistol is greater, but putting two bullets into an opponent when in need ain't bad either.

    ye, thats how I interpreted it aswell. To bad the quick load skill (hunter I think) changed so it doesnt aply to pistols.

    I think there should be some more buffs for pistols, like stand and shoot for instance (in effect a strike first attack per pistol).
    What do you think about that? would that be balanced?

    ps. thanks for replying m8, I didn't think anyone would anymore

    (my spelling checker is not working atm, so please ignore any mistakes )

    i find one shot is good as most people can't survive the shot. therefore the maxim "one shot, one kill" applys here. also the fact that models may have 2 pistols mean that you can wound ogres below 1/2 wounds.
