In the fast attack section, in particular the Assault Marines....

when you give a Marine a Plasma Pistol or Flamer.. does he retain the
chainsword and boltpistol given that it does not say 'exchange' ??

thanks

The boltpistol is replaced with the plasma pistol. The flamer replaces both
weapons as it is two-handed.

Well, since you can have at most two one-handed weapons, or a
two-handed weapon and a one-handed weapon I would say that one weapon
would have to be dropped in both cases.

so hypothetically the bolt pistol would be dropped and the chainsword
slung......

but 1 x S4 strike is good enough for me....


thanks

Well, that's my interpretation anyway. In game terms it doesn't matter
if the marine with the flamer has to drop both the pistol and the
sword, or gets to keep the sword. He will in both cases get one S4 cc
attack.

Don't think I was being rude and I appreciate your replies.........

i suppose wrapping a heavy weapon around somebody's head is just as good
when push comes to shove :)  :)  :)

Yeah but in the land of GW weapons are HUGE. The few holsters they make
look ridiculously large on the figures' hips and they're still too small to
actually fit a bolt or las piston in. One handed weapons like chainswords
reach from the ground to a man's chin...

You probably went quiet in that good night. I think that anything less than
orbital bombardment is probably not worth the fight.

The model is still bound by the limit of 2 weapons, no more than 1
2-handed.

So he could have BP & Flamer, Flamer & CCW, or just Flamer. Either way,
he gives up the +1A for 2 weapons.
