We're in a middle of a game and hope that someone will response quickly on this... Tough luck...

BUT is it possible to use the whips when your model are placed behind an other model???

Thanks...

No... Maybe... Er...

The rules for steel whips as they were printed in the Mordheim rulebook have undergone some changes. Check the errata. I don't have a copy of the rules review material handy right now man and I never play with warbands that use whips. Sad

Yeah...whips are no longer a 4" range / melee weapon. The now give +1 attack that strikes first when charging or charged. Also, they can't be parried.

The updated rules are in the living rulebook, can be found here:
http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/article.jsp?catId=cat480008a&categoryId=1100010&section=&aId=5300009

The special rules for them are Whipcrack (quoted from the LRB below) and like mentioned above, can't be parried.
Quote :

Whipcrack: when the wielder charges they gain
+1A for that turn. This bonus attack is added
after any other modifications. When the wielder
is charged they gain +1A that they may only use
against the charger. This additional attack will
‘strike first’. If the wielder is simultaneously
charged by two or more opponents they will
still only receive a total of +1A. If the wielder is
using two whips at the same time then they get
+1A for the additional hand weapon, but only
the first whip gets the whipcrack +1A

Unless I've been cheating and didn't read it right...

Also note in the above rule that it is a BONUS attack added after other modifications.

The other modifications are that the whip gives you +1 attack for using a 2nd HTH weapon...(if you have another)

and then you get the additional whipcrack attack when charged or charging.

@Playtable: You're reading it correctly. That is indeed a special bonus attack in addition to the off-hand weapon attack.
