Default 2 handed weapons

Hey, I don't really understand. Is a Officer allowed 1 two-handed weapon and 1 one-handed weapon or just a two handed weapon? eg. would a officer be able to have a storm bolter and a power sword or just a storm bolter?

Thanks

an officer say commisar?

can carry a power sword and a las pistol.

A preist for example,with an eviscarator, can only take that weapon and no pistol/other cc weapon as he is carrying a two-handed weapon, meaning he needs both hand to carry it.

Hope thats shed some light-
Annie

a preist could take a pistol with his evicerator. he's alowe two one handed weapons or one two handed weapon and one one handed weapon. so he could take the evicerator as his two handed weapona dn the pistol as his one handed. he wont benefit from an extra attack since he needs both his hands for the eviserator, but he'd still be able to shoot.

to answer your question, yes he could take both the stormbolter and the power sword.

No, I'm pretty sure a priest cannot take two weapons, with an eviscarator, because its a two handed power/chain sword? Which page of the codex would it say on the armoury?

its a two handed weapon, which means he can't use it with another weapon, but he can still take one. if not how all those commissars have bolters and power weapons?

The rules are that you can take one "two handed weapon" and one "one handed weapon".

or

You can take two "one handed weapon."

It's really not hard to understand, like elessar said.

Can you alternate which weapons you use in a game?

Yes, two one handed weapons are the one you use in assault (Close Combat Weapon and Laspistol, for example)

And you'd just shoot a stormbolter anyway.

Meaning what?
If you take two ranged weapons (Bolter and a Plasma Pistol say), you may only ever fire one a turn, but you can choose which you fire.

Also, I think the dex says
"You may take up to two weapons, of which only one may be two-handed"
