Default Just A Question

Hey guys, i was making some models yesterday and had two bolt pistol arms for left and right, and i thought that would look kinda cool, so the question is can a model have two onehanded guns?

It looks nice.. And I think that this is playable as having (One or two? ) Bolt pistols. I say this because you see, Seraphim A Sisters of Battle unit, are equipped with two bolt pistols which count as twin linked and are treated as being an additional close combat weapon in close combat.

However, I do not believe you get that same bonus as the Seraphim do, But hey I like it though it's very stylish 8)

Pretty much what Avor said. The model would count as having one bolt pistol and an additional close combat weaponas you can only fire one weapon at a time. Only the Seraphim of the Sisters of battle can use two pistols at the same time. Supposedly they have special training for this and so have special rules.

I liked my concepts and partial implementation of my "John Woo" marines. Dual bolt-guns, gun-kata poses...game-wise they're normal marines but it's the kinda thing that makes your opponent say, "Damn, I don't know if I want to shoot at something that cool."
