Anointed shooting weapons?

Post by Klomster on Tue Dec 22, 2009 12:29 pm

I just thought of it, i don't think the FAQ speaks of it and it speaks as it is a close combat weapon.

But there is no real rule that says that only close combat weapons can be anointed.

Could be fun with an anointed psycannon.

Klomi, my friend. It seems that you have overseen something in the rules. The anointed weapon counts as a power weapon that wounds daemons on 4+....
So it is a CC weapon.

Yes, but it doesn't say it can't be bought to a shooting weapon.

If you read the rules as interpreted, it does put it in a way that suggest it is a CCW.

But then, RAW, there is no limitation, (that i've seen).

Perhaps it gives shooting weapons those qualities when used in CC.

"-Haha, he only has a bolter, that puny human can't harm us deamons."
"-This is no ordinary bolter, it is conscecrated."
"-Fool, i am in close combat with you, you cannot fire."
"-Indeed."
*SMACK!!!*Sound of bolter hitting the head of a deamon*
"-AAAARGH!!!"
"-Hehe. Shoot with a conscecrated bolter, silly deamon."

I'm just trying to get this thought trough. Can it be bought and be used?

I think it could be possible, if only in close combat, not that the shots themselves would count as powerweapons.

*Sound of a small blast and a sudden blade hitting a terminator in to the heart*
Space Marine Devastator:"A Power weapon gun!And guess what?"
Another Chaos Terminator:"What?"
SMDevastator:"Its ASSAULT 6!"
*sound of multiple power weapons hitting terminators*

umm..... Annointed weapon isn''t an upgrade. It's a weapon, like a deamonhammer or powerfist. a powerweapon with additional anti deamon powers, like the daemonhammer is a thunderhammer with additional anti deamon weapons.

It's not like mastercrafting.

Well look at that?

I must have gone completely mind fart. Thanks MJSwasey, you made me realise how stupid i am Razz

Well, it is a completely standalone weapon, so not an upgrade.

That means that i've learned something today.
Read up on the reference material, or you'll make an ass of yourself. Very Happy
