    Striking Scorpions

    I was looking through my new Eldar codex and had a question about the number of attacks the SS get. Would they get a base of 3 attacks at S4 because of 2 CC weapons and mandiblasters? With that, if the Exarch was equipped with Scorpions Claw or Chainsabres would he get 4 attacks and 3 attacks with Biting blade?

    Iv read through some of the posts about the weapons the SS cary but they still were not that clear to me. Its like Im missing a rule in there somewhere.

    He gets 5 S6 attacks on the charge. He has to choose between the claw or the sword, but cannot use both in a turn.

    The other scorpions get 4 S4 attacks on the charge.

    You're right, they have 3 attacks each.

    1+ Mandiblaster + Additional CC weapon

    The Exarc has 1 Attack more then regulars Scorpions unless you equip him with the 2 handed weapon, which will negate the additional CC weapon bonus.

    Word. It is commonly overlooked. Good luck! Scorpions rock.

    Scorpians are my personal fav - sure, they have no sexy power weapons. But their strength, armour, number of attacks, combined with one of the best invisible powerfist setups in the game always comes through for me.

    Yeah I really like the 3+ save and number of attacks. I just ran out and bought a pack of them to cap off my 2000pt army.
