hello,

first and foremostly i searched for this but came up empty, if there is a link to a previous discussion about this topic then i'd be happy to be re directed Smile

so, i have been wondering this for a while, especially as i might be losing out on some attacks. basically, wracks are stated to have 2 poisoned weapons. so does this confer the usual +1 for two close combat weapons and +1 for two of the same or is there something that states they don't get teh bonuses? i can't find anything that says otherwise in the codex. and the rulebook just says ' two of the same = +1'

the other reason i ask is because duke sliscus also has 2 poisoned weapons, which potentially means he has 5 attacks as standard rather than 3. and even in the weapon profile it states they are the same "Duke Sliscus fights with twin venom blades.." pg 51 of the Dark Eldar codex

Cheers

The rulebook on p42 states two normal close combat weapons = +1 attack, and two of the same special weapons = +1 attack. You can't combine these, you either count the poisoned weapons as two normal ccw's or (as I would read it) two special weapons. you can't stack the attacks, it's either/or.

They get the +1 for 2 CCW....

the extra +1 referenced is just for powerfists and the like that ONLY get the +1 for 2CCW when they are the same...

so wracks are 1 attack base, +1 for 2 CCW, and then +1 for charging as applicable

The Duke is 3 base, +1 for 2 CCW, +1 for charging as applicable
