Rules Question

Post by heimwehr » Sun Jan 15, 2017 11:17 pm

Not sure if this changed in the red books but in Betrayal under Legion Tactical Squad it sounds like you can arm your squad with 2 chain weapons.
"The entire Legion Tactical Squad may do one of the following:
-Exchange their bolter for a combat blade or chainsword..........Free
-Take an additional combat blade or chainsword...........+2 points each"
Am I right thinking I can have 2 chain weapons? Did it change in the red books?
Thanks for any help you can give me!

No, as it says 'The Entire Legion Tactical Squad may do ONE of the following:'

So no, they may only do one or the other.
Great Ascendent Drakthia-Servant of Rivera, Drothri of Solaris

Great Leviathan Vasa-Master of the Milky Way

Lesser Leviathan Rivera-Guardian of Belliath, Servant of Vasa

Yes, it's one of these options. Basically, it allows you get a close combat weapon for free in exchange of giving up your bolters or paying 2 pts for getting your additional CC weapon if you want to keep your firepower.

Thanks! Much appreciated! The wording was throwing me off because it says "additional" when they don't already carry chainsword or combat blade. Made me think that it was a second chainsword or combat blade not in addition to Bolter. Bummer :( was looking forward to making a bunch of duel weapon wielding chainaxes for the World Eaters(fits fluff wise in that they were trying to emulate Angron), oh well. Thanks again!
