Terminator boxes - Falchions?

Post by PurityinFlames on Thu Nov 29, 2012 6:00 am


Just a quick question - how many pairs of Falchions do you get in the GK Terminator box? I'm looking to build a unit of ghost knights with falchions and a Brotherhood banner and I'm trying to work out how many sets of falchions I'm going to need?

In addition - can the GK marine falchions be used on the termies?

quick answer: no idea on the terminator box since don't own any (non proxy) GK terminators, but yes you can certainly use the falchions from a strike squad box on terminator units.

Question: why do you want falchions when they're not really that brilliant...

A quick look on the GW site seems to show 5 sets per box. For future reference if you have questions about the contents of sprues hit up the GW site first, they have sprue pics for a lot of the boxes so it's probably quicker than waiting for one of us to answer.
Yes you could use regular marine falchions on terminators, but I believe the hands would be noticeably smaller.

I'm looking to have a primarily CC ghost knight unit - +1 attack from the falchions, +1 from the Banner and +1 from a charge - 5 attacks on the charge makes for a funsome prospect...

Oh...and I really love the idea of termies fighting with 2 swords...

I will ponder the idea; I've seen someone use Mordrak and the knights once before, but he deep struck into the middle of a tyranid force and, needless to say...it wasn't pretty.

I'm thinking that they would need to deepstrike onto the table somewhere to threaten, but not wind up getting steamrollered
