Default Waaagh! Banner query

This has been bugging me for a while now:
If a noz mob has more than 1 W Banner then are th WS bonuses comunalative?
The codex doesn't say you can't gain several bonus's but i was wondering what you guys think.

Thanks, Da Sorck

I see no reason why it wouldn't stack.

Hmm, sounds possible, but if you don't mind me birdwalking the topic for a second, why would you want more than one?
The big jump in WS is really 4 to 5, as the majority of infantry is WS4 or less. Going from 5 to 6 really doesn't have that much utility. WS 6 to 7 will make it tough for WS3 folks to hit you, but that's a lot of banners.
Banners are also useful if you're trying to work the wound allocation rules, which would make 2 banners sort of redundant.
Still, getting back to the point, I guess you could have two banners...

Best,

I was wondering because a) i wanted to know if it happended b) Most eldar (except guardians) are WS5 so a couple of Waaagh! banners will make me hit on 3+ and i'll be able to tear them to peaces by wounding them on 2's on the charge (with a couple of klaws)

I can't see why this wouldn't work, but outside of a few specific units (Berzerkers come to mind) or HQ choices, it'll be redundant. If you have enough spare points and are trying to abuse wound allocation, go for it and let us know if it works.

Hmm... that's interesting, nowhere in the codex can I find anything that says you can only take one banner, or that the bonus to weapon skill isn't cumulative.

That said, I think going past WS5 would be pretty handy but only if you had lots of extra points kicking around. Orks already trash other armies in assault so it's probably not necessary.

It seems to me like this should be disallowed though, perhaps I read somewhere maybe in a FAQ or something that you can't do it.

No, there's nothing in the FAQ/Errata articles that disallows it.
Against eldar WS6 is what's needed

On a similar topic:
Does a Waaagh! banner count as equipment (doesn't take up weapon space) like a bosspole or does it require a hand to carry. I believe it's the former but i'd still like to check

I don't think it takes up a weapn slot simply because it isn't under the "Replace Slugga/choppa with the following:" part of the kit allocation
