    Waaagh! banner

    I don't see anything in the rules that says a Nob cannot carry a Waaagh! banner and another weapon like say... a power claw... rather than just an empty fist.

    Is that incorrect?

    A Waaagh! banner is a piece of wargear that can be assigned to any nob in the unit. At least thats how I've seen it.

    that's what I thought too!

    Which means he can also have a PK or other one handed weapon in his other green fist

    As far as i see it this is correct, as long as the wargear doesn't say that it's a "weapon" than it can be taken without interfering with weapon slots, such as the PK. The way I see it is that a banner can be strapped on to the backs of the nob, so he still has two free hands to take whatever he can haha

    I'm sure there will be more specific clarification to the rules though when someone with more epxerience pops in, but if you needed a quick answer then yes you can take a PK and waaagh banner

    I think I have been assuming it was a replacement for the weapons since the models I have seen are only holding the banner, nothing else.

    But reading the rules it does not appear to be a requirement...

    GW actually sell a nob holding the waaagh banner with a PK. So yeah, not a problem to have them both.

    Model is Ork Nob with Waaagh! Banner | Games Workshop I actually use it in my nob squad (but I bought it when it wasn't so expensive.)

    I wouldn't have noticed the PK if you had not mentioned it... I like the klaw holding the banner... sweet.

    I still plan to kitbash one... but now might have the klaw hold the banner... looks really cool that way I think

    I just made my waaggh banner into a PK/Big Choppa (counts as either). Problem solved!





    FYI These models aren't done yet. Haven't finished them from when i started months ago (we bought a house and moved! No time!)

    Brilliant! I love it!

    I started piecing one together last night out of plastic card and toothpicks... plus some bits here and there. Almost ready to give it a good soaking in glue and then paint it up. Need a Nob model to attach it to... probably need to pick up a box this weekend. I think I'm going to go the route of the GW model and have the klaw holding the banner.

    Here is a look at my attempt

    I started off by drawing pattern on the card, but after I got the head and jaw piece cut out I realized the resulting scraps made for better teeth and horns.

    The rivet / bolts are beads of unmelted candle wax that I carefully glued on with forceps

    The pic is blurry... old Sony cyber-shot that can't shoot up close like
