Default Wound Allocation Inquiry

I know everyone hates wound allocation discussions, but this one must take place. Everyone knows that if you are assaulting with two weapons and all models have an Attack identifier of 2, then each model gets 2 attacks plus 1 for initiating the assault and plus 1 for having two weapons for a total of 4 attacks. This brings me to the question, "If you have more than one attack in close combat, how many of those attacks are you allowed to count as a power weapon if said model has a power klaw (for example)." If I have 4 attacks in an assault, do I count 2 as a power klaw attack and 2 as a slugga butt stroke or can I count all of them as power klaw attacks? I appreciate all feedback, but would greatly value rulebook references. Thanks guys.

Page 42, Fighting with two Single-handed Weapons

Under the section for a normal and a Special weapon:
"These models gain one additional attack. All of their attacks, including the bonus attack, benefit from the special weapons bonuses."

Thanks Irishdelinquint! I've confirmed your post and appreciate any effort you put into attaining an answer for me. I thought I found a discrepancy with this, it was a statement saying that certain power weapons are exceptions to this, but that was actually referring to having two different power weapons and being able to pick which one you wanted to attack with that turn. At any rate, thank you very much!

no worries, I thought that you might have been on to something too. I remember reading through that section in detail, though, when an argument came up over whether Eldrad could use both the Staff of Ulthamar and his witchblade at the same time.

there is an exception. It says Power fists are an exception, and you need a second fist to confer the extra attack. Power Klaws are power fists.

Correct! Don't forget Power fist equivalent weapons though, such as thunder hammers
