Welcome to Librarium Online!
I think the chainsword is just too much better over a regular knife/sword/cc weapon, and its just a cool concept. so i was thinking along the lines of allowing to reroll failed to wounds or decrease armour save by 1, or maybe both. it makes sense fluff wise as the chainfist doubles against armor, so a chainsword should be better against chewing through armor or similar, while the many teeth make it hard for something hit by it to not get maimed, so the reroll would make sense too.
pts wise i think 2 pts if its one or the other and 4 if its both, make it cheaper than a pwr sword (thinking imperial guard here, double it for marines and the like)
what do yal think?
I dislike it. The reason Knives are on the same level as chainswords is because the have mono-molecular edges.
Nice double post, buddy.
Opinion: It's too complicated, 40k knives are pretty damn sharp already, and there's no real point.

Does anyone remember the parry rule from 2nd ed?
That was cool for swords, although a little annoying.
Power swords and axes and mauls all used to have different stats.
But, consider this. A guardsman with a chain sword and a marine with a chop stick.
My money's on the marine any day.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

Hmm....The reduced armour save doesn't sound that bad...
Don't Ork Choppa's have the same thing?
But on the other hand, a Marine with a knife could probably do the same level of damage. Like slitting a throat or stabbing an eye.
Do i want chainswords to do that i think not
I dont see why i think a monomolecular blade will do much better going through armour.
the only way to work this is to cost five points so they wouldnt be worth taking i prefer bolter shots
