Default Psykers + Power Weapons

One question.
I checked my 'dex, but I still dont know the answer. I have seen them on Psykers several times, but It doesnt say they can take them, but in tournament legal lists they have them, (and they are not force weapons)

i ask because I want a
Psyker with Honerifica Imperialis, Plasma pistol, Carapace armour, and a power weapon.

Psykers cannot take power weapons. They can take force weapons which act as power weapons + chance to insta kill any multi-wound model that you wounded the turn before

Nothing is fair in tournaments. It isn't fair that some people in tournaments can paint better either. Dice gods aren't fair.

Back on topic the only psyker I know can be useful in cc has a force weapon and honorifica. No more points allowance, no more gear.

If your command squad takes carapace through the doctrine the psyker will get it too. The honorifica and force weapon psyker is a lot of fun when you roll well, but most of the time mine isn't too great, and doesn't make up his points. I really just keep him for fluff.

Psykers would be horrible with power weapons, don't they have a low WS?

yes, but mine has the Honorifica Imperialis, giving him the stat line of an HSO.

Force Weapon's don't count towards the maximum wargear lol, they're a weapon.

Yeah! That could work, although you'd have to have a masterful fluff mind to figure out how he'd get that medal. Usually, psykers die early, due to the warp or commissars or even being too strong for themselves.

If you do get it working, I suggest you not give the psyker a good ranged weapon, as you'll probably be using your psyker powers first.

It could work!

Good Luck!

Mike-yeah, they're a weapon, counting towards the 50pts he can take. I don't understand what you're saying?
