Welcome to Librarium Online!
Im confused on how exactly karandras works in close combat. This is what i interpretted it as.
With his base S of 4 and A of 4 He has a fist which doubles his S and a scorpion chainsword which increases S by one, putting him at 9. Then 2 close combat weapons +1 A and the scorpions bite +2 A, putting him at 7. Making karandras get 7 attacks when not charging at S 9 no armor saves allowed.
Is that how all that wargear is supposed to work out?
You can only ever use one weapon in close combat.
So you can use the claw's strength and go last, no armor saves
or ths sword's strength and go at initiative with armor saves
You still get the benefit of having another CCW and mandiblaster so you are correct on the number of attacks.
