View Full Version : skaven clanrats weapons question

21-09-2010, 21:20
Hey I'm new to fantasy and I needed a little help clearing something up. If you give a clan rat a spear and shield then has a hand wep, spear and shield since the codex says addition equipment rather than saying replace hand wep right? So further more the rats then get a plus one attack since they are wielding a special wep and a hand wep as the rules say? You don't need to have a dual wield special rule? Also since they are equipped with a shield they get the plus one armor plus one parry ward save when using the hand weap (if u use HW on the charge)? Just seems way to good to be true but I can't find anywhere that says other wise. Thanks

Yes it's most obviously too good to be true.

First, of course you need something labeled 'Additional Hand Weapon' for it to grant the +1A, like the Plague Monks do.

Second, if you give them Spears, they cannot use the Hand Weapon due to the Spear being a Special Weapon.

Third, since you do not use a Hand Weapon/Shield combo, you get no Parry Save.

It's all in the weapons section, hidden away at different places.

I think that you need to reread pg 88 and 89.

Specifically the paragraphs titled Close Combat Weapons (pg 89).
