Yesterday a model landed a critical hit with a whip. As we are using the optional critical hit table we realized that we did not know to which kind of weapon the whip belongs.

Can anybody please help out?

I'd play whips as bludgeoning weapons. It is closer to flails and morning stars than to anything else.

Someone at the "Letters of the Damned" fan mag must have had this same issue. There's a separate flexible weapons crit table on page 19:

Technically whips are slashing weapons, but if that flexible weapon crit chart suits your needs, go for it!

While a whip does cut i would think the cuts would be rather shallow. What about unarmed crit table? It seems to cover a lot of situations. When I doubt I just use that and figure it out after the battle.

We've been using the table posted in LotD since DaBank was part of the local group, he's the one who first printed it out for us. Give it a go.

Actually, though it seems funny, our group reasoned that the MISSILE crit table seemed most appropriate. You're hitting a target with a tiny piece of leather going faster than the speed of sound, with a very long range. Little chance of caving his skull in or crushing his chest, but high chance of hitting someone else or catching him in the eye. Thus, missile chart worked great!
