Very quick one. Does a charging model wielding a two-handed sword strike last even in the first round, or only in subsequent rounds?

From the rulebook:

Strike last: Double-handed weapons are so heavy that the
model using them always strikes last, even when charging.

Sorry, must be going blind. Mother said it would happen.

Following on the ruling for spears (that they go in I order when the wielder is charged), we house-ruled that one. Now we play it that the conflicting rules cancel each other out, so a model with a two-handed weapon strikes in I order when charging - that is, unless the model being charged has a spear.

How's that for confusing? Very Happy

We always play spears get the first strike in the first round.

Just for the record: There are no "two-handed swords" or "two-handed axes", only "two-handed weapons", i.e. the weapons don't benefit from the specific rules for swords, axes, etc. You probably know this but I thought I'd mention it nevertheless. Smile

They do, however, use different crit tables if you are using the optional ones at the back of the book.

This is the reason that my designated monster-killer is armed with a DH hammer rather than a DH sword or axe. IMAO Web of Steel is more potent when combined with a hammer. I prefer a 5+ chance of getting 'Bludgeoned' to a 4+ chance of getting 'Sliced!'.

A little less likely to occur, but much funnier when it does; and really, why do we play this game if not to generate funny stories and memories?

Look-up the Rules for Kitana in BTB. You get the advantages of a sword and a two handed weapon all in one.
