Default Kombi Assault

I just had an idea and I donít have my Ďdex or BOB with me to check on it so Iím just gonna throw it up as-is and you guys can tell me what you think.

Ork Burnas can be used as power weapons if they donít shoot in the shooting phase. Kombi-weapons are basically 2 weapons stuck together that cannot be fired at the same time and the secondary weapon gets only 1 use. SoÖ what if my Nob equipped with a Kombi-Shoota/Burna fires his Shoota portion before an assault and then in assault (because he hasnít used his Burna yet) uses his one burna charge to give him a power weapon for that assault.

Admittedly you would be better off attacking larger/squishier units with the template and then charging but against monstrous creatures or other low count well armored opponents the shoota/power weapon option would be a superior.

So what do you think?

It's Shoota/Skorcha Kombi-Weapon, not Shoota/Burna Kombi-Weapon. There's a difference between the Skorcha and Burna. So, you don't get a 'power' weapon attack from a Shoota/Skorcha Kombi-Weapon.

Ah, that makes me sad. :'( Oh well I would have found out the same thing tonight when I read through the 'dex. Better to crush my dreams now and get it over with.

Anyways, it sounded good in my head. :P

Power Klaw or Big Choppa... Never forget the Big Choppas, my friend!

Besides, no whining about the Skorcha. It's PERFECT for burning da Gits before charging them, or making Fire Dragons do "da burny dance" (honestly! I once torched a unit of Eldar Firedragons with a Skorcha!).

Cheers,

And it never hurts to diversify for wound allocation too!

Best,
