Default Furious Charge and Power fists

Ok i checked the rules and it dosn't say which rule goes first. So just say in the case of Bezerkers, there base S is 4 and then +1 for the charge and the power fist doubles that, so is he S 10 or S 9?

year 2 mathematics tells you the answer - strength 9.

Its also in the rulebook - page 7 in a little box in the right column.

It has also been answered many times in the forums in other threads in the same board.

Basic maths. You multiply before and addition/subtraction.

In maths, yes. In wargaming, depends.

Calm down dude, he's only saying it because this question comes up all the time and a simple search would have provided you with the answer you required, as well as the rulebook.

BODMAS: Brackets over Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction.

Base Strength Four, Double Strength and Plus One Strength.

Therefore=4*2+1. According to BoDMAS, multiplication comes before addition so the equation becomes (4*2)+1=9.

So yes, it is pretty simple maths :P

Please don't take it personally. It is probably the most common question by noobs and curious george's alike, and none of which think to use the search function. It really is a wonderful feature. The mundane tasks of finding a thread yourself is reduced when your minion the internet can do it for you, leaving you to your ever-powerful plans of ruthless destruction :P

I've never heard the mnemonic BoDMAS, although it works just fine. I learned PEMDAS: Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication / Division, Addition / Subtraction. It's remembered as Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally. Cheesy as anything, but easy to remember.
