Quick question here. I don't have my book on me and was curious if archaon gets an 11th attack due to frenzy. I guess a second question will have to be does the extra attack rule count on your stat line i.e. can it get past 10? I forget the wording for archaon it is probably answered there. He never used to have frenzy just curious if they covered it.

I would say he gets the 11 as his profile attacks of 5 get doubled to 10 then he gets +1 for frenzy.

Yeah i think there is a question regarding the chimaera in the faq if you can have more then 10 attacks, and you can due for example random attacks (the chimaera had 4d6 attacks) or frenzy/AHW etc. The cap 10 is on the statline.

When he unleashes the slayer of kings he fights with double his normal number of attacks, to a maximum of 10.
So when frenzied he'd get 6 attacks (5 base, plus 1 for frenzy) and if he unleashed the sword it would be doubled to 12 but the cap would kick in knocking it down to just 10.

So it's capped at 10.

Hmmm I see the extra attack rule as not adding to your stat line. Unless I'm mistaken. Does anyone know what the rulebook says for the extra attack rule?

Extra Attack Increases his Attack value by 1. Pg 69

Seen many refer to his 11 attacks. Could not be bothered to reply all those times but it is 10.

The sword limits him to 10, period.

^Agreed. Not only does the BRB limit any stat to a max of 10, the Slayer of Kings also limits him to 10.

You're right about models with Random Attacks being able to have more than 10 attacks, but models that just have some form of the Extra Attack rule are still limited to 10 (otherwise the limit would be fairly pointless).

Q: When a model has a random characteristic value, 3D6 or 2D6+2 for example, can that characteristic go above 10? (p3)
A: Yes, this is an exception to the usual maximum.
