Welcome to Librarium Online!
I gots a question about the Swooping Hawk Exarch.
I look for an answer but didn't find one.
Can you use the Web of Skulls in conjunction with the Sustained Assualt ability?
The codex says that you can use the web of skulls in CC and that it counts as a power weapon ( no armor saves yay!) and Sustained Assault says that if you hit you can keep rolling to hit until you fail.
I don't see anywhere where it says you cannot use these powers together, so I am assuming that it works.
Also, I would imagine that the Exarch would get their attacks (2 normal or 3 on the charge) and if I get a hit from that, then the Sustained Assault would kick in and I would continue to roll one die until I get no other hits.
That is correct, assuming you don't use the Web of Skulls as a ranged weapon in the shooting phase that turn.
Everything I have told you, even this, is a lie.
This should be posted in the Eldar forum.
I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
Thread moved. . .
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

that is not correct. you may use the power of the web of skulls in the shooting phase ONLY.
the line "counts as a power weapon in close combat" means just that. it is a power weapon, not a s4 ap5 gun with multiple hits.
an exarch armed with a web of skulls and shurican pistol gets 4 attacks on the charge and 3 standard. you roll to hit. take the dice that hit and roll them again. continue to do this until all the dice have missed.
I understand that, my question is, do I get the power weapon feature of the web of skulls combined with the sustained assault? So does every one of my attacks ignore armor saves?Originally Posted by theriddles
oh right. guess i didn't read your post properly.
the web of skulls acts as a power weapon in combat. sustained assault affects all your cc hits, so yes you get sustained assault power weapon attacks.
Yes, you get to use it as a power weapon. Like it has been said above, you will be usign it at your base str though.
I've seen a man roll 26 ones in a single handfull of dice, and Tycho die 49 consecutive times in 60 games. I've had a wolf lord never die (106 games) and a war walker kill a Force Commander AFTER its gotten both weapons destroyed. I've lived a full gaming life.
