I get it a bit: it's a +1 str on the charge from a power sword. But after that, it's ap4 vs the sword's ap3, and no strength bonus (so it's useless vs MEQ). It seems to be popping up quite a bit now. Am I missing something, or are people just assuming that they'll kill off any opposing unit on the charge?

It is 10 points cheaper then agoniser, so you can give those en masse. I cant justify giving agoniser to 5 man wych unit, but can giving them power spear.

Also it is affected by drugs and Furious Charge.

Also on Hellions it is essentially better agoniser, with their hit'n'run.

We make most of the damage during charge anyway. Rightly so now with worse Feel No Pain.

Tis also great on HQs who can take 2 close combat weapons. Cheap Archon can take Power Spear, Venom Blade Combat Drugs and it is very viable load-out.

I think this was misinterpreted. Why do people choose the power lance over power sword? After the initial charge, the power lance is useless against MEQ.

Power Sword is useless against MEQ anyway. Wounding on 5+ is killer. Do you see banshees often?
You cant challenge with power sword and kill what you have challenge reliably, you can with Power Spear. And thats big and important part of the game now.
