View Full Version : Multiple attacks & weapons

15-11-2006, 06:16
Fairly newbie question, but I can't seem to figure it out from the big rulebook, so asking seems like the best bet.

If I have a hero model with multiple attacks (specific to this question, an Ogre Bruiser with 4 attacks)and give him a Cathayan Longsword from his unit entry, then a Sword of Battle as part of his magic equipment alotment, does he get 4 attacks with the bonuses of the longsword and one with just his regular stats, or 5 attacks with the Catayan bonuses, or... something else?

I find myself very confused by this... :confused:

It is said under the section Magic Weapons :
"A character that has a magic close combat weapon cannot use any other close combat weapons, although it can carry a shield as normal.

so in your example; he would have 5 attacks(4+1) with his base strength, that he can't use catayhan swrod any time.

Exactly: if you use a magic weapon (if you bought it, you must use it) you cannot use any other melee weapon. No cathayan bonus then.

Unless someone breaks your magic weapon of course! Generally though its a waste of points taking a magical and a mundane weapon upgrade.

hmm, ok. Looks like that's not going to work so well then.

thanks guys.
