A quick question for you all which has me a bit thumped. In the previous codex the Scorpion Exarch had a naturally high strength to boost via Power Claw but now he has a lower strength but his higher strength comes from the Scorpion Chainsword boost.
Now given the power claw alone he should be strength 6. But because it's only a single handed weapon and can be used in conjunction with the Scorpion Chainsword, does that allow me to bring his strength up to 8.....or even 7 should you wish to add the additional strength after doubling.
Wow....that was really quick...I was about to add as an edit that while it does not say so directly, under the chainsabers rules it mentions that being used in combinations with the power claw.
But the BGB has a specific rule disallowing the use of two weapons special effects in any given turn. You can still claim the +1 attack, but never both bonuses of two weapons.
People seem to sudenly dislike the Claw now that is is only S 6, but why?
My friends still shiver at the thought of 5 Ws5 S6 power attacks.
I know that the S8 was beautiful for killing spoace marine characters, but S6 still wounds them on 2+.
Hope it helps

Because I1 neuters him. Not many people reailse it but your scorpion exarch is usually only ever within 2" of 3-4 enemies. If your scorpions kill anything that immediately comes out of your exarchs available kills. So the more your scorpions kill the less targets the exarch has. I hate it when my friend does that to me with his necrons. I can just get the exarch into contact with 1 guy then that 1 guy dies to the normal scorpions. Suddenly my power fist is wasted.
1. Because marines don't rely on initiative as such.
2. Because when in a tactical squad the rest of the squad isn't going to be denying him targets.
3. Because of the instant-kill. The ability to stop a rampaging chaplain/chaos lord/autarch with a cheap sergeant is incredible.
