Hi,

Does anyone know:

can you have a an Ogre tyrant equipped with both a cathayan longsword and an ironfist? and if so will you still get the +1 atk or +1 save bonus from the ironfist.

the book says iron fists confer this bonus when used with a mundane hand weapon, i'm not sure if this means mundane as in non magical or mundane as in just the standard handweapon?



cheers

Whether they work together is irrelevant (though I would say yes if the option was there since mundane, to me anyways, means non-magical) because in the ogre tyrant section it's clearly OR for the weapon options so you can't have both, you can have one OR the other. Sorry :)

Just think though that saves you points for the Arabyan Carpet :D

Well, theoretically, no, they wouldn't be usable together, as the cathayan longsword is not a hand weapon at all.

well it clearly states in the "cathayan Longsword" section page 39 of the ogre kingdoms book

"A Cathayan longsword is a one handed weapon that is so finely crafted...."

so yes it is a hand weapon

But Warhammer makes a distinction between a weapon following the rules for "Hand weapon" and weapons described as one handed in their fluff.

One Handed Weapon is NOT a "Hand Weapon"
Hand Weapon is a weapons rule
'One Handed Weapon' is a general term to define how many hands it uses.

no wander GW need so many FAQs, so much to get wrong from the smallest of alterations in the way the rules are written, still gotta love GW tho :)

Cathayan Longsword is great with both WS and I upgrade.

With the new eules I think we will se Ogres with magic shields!

Cathayan Longsword, Shield of Ptolos, Arabic Rug and Pond Stone :D

WS7, S5, T5, W5, I5, A5, 1+ armoursave vs. missile attacks with reroll and Fly ability!

Nasty!
