Default Is GW that stupid?

I was just looking at the back of the IG codex, and the "Command Squad" in the middle left corner has a powerfist and a power weapon in it. I don't know if they weren't paying attention to this, or were just putting random models down on a board for photos but that is illegal, isn't it? I also noticed it in the 4th Edition rule book.

Well, I'm not sure about regular power weapons, but Command Squads have access to power fists, (Officers, etc).

I think the guy who made that squad used a JO as a Veteran... wheter he was dumb enough to try and give him a powerfist is another question.

officers, commissars... but why wate a powerfist on an officer who, as an independent char. can easily be picked out? power weapon is reasonable tho. lots of officers tend to come modeled with powerfists too.

You should look at the image in question before commenting. There's a Command Squad comprising an Officer with a Plasma Pistol and Power Weapon, 2 Meltagunners, a Vox-Op, a Psanctioned Psyker, and what appears to be Cadian JO model with a laspistol and powerfist.

ah sorry. just commenting off the top of my head.

powerfist and power weapon in same command isnt illegal, im pretty sure. heck as they're both one-hand weapons, i think you could put both on an officer. or, one on a commisar.

Please, look at the picture. Both Powerfists and Powerweapons are Officer-Only items. There are two different models in the squad, neither of which are Commissars. Veterans cannot select OO items. Ergo, illigal unit.

a sword doesnt have to be a power weapon, meaning its probably just a close combat weapon and plasma pistol for that guy rulewise, while the pfist is the officer.

or maybe they just thought it looked better
