Default Master-Crafted Lightning Claws

While I was writing my recent army lists, I thought of something... If you have 2 Lightining Claws, do you have to pay the points twice to Master-Craft both of them or just for the pair as 1 item...

I would guess pay double since instead of picking lightning claws twice your picking an option for a pair.

The way I see it is that you need only pay for master crafting once. With a power weapon and bolt pistol, you need only master craft the power weapon in order to get the close combat re-roll, the pistol just gives you an extra attack. The same principle applies to lightning claws; the second claw merely grants the wielder an extra attack. You no more need to master craft both lightning claws than you need to master craft a second close combat weapon in any other instance.

It is not 2 lightning claws. Its one lightning claw and a pair of lightning claws. Its just one item you purchase, you dont buy two single lightning claws but you buy them as a pair. You only pay once to mastercraft them. Even if it was 2 single claws you would only need to master craft one of them to get the re-roll. Cause as mentioned you dont master craft the power weapon and bolt pistol, just the power weapon.

As Vash said.
But I would never recommend mastercrafting weapons.
Only ONE reroll per round? I'd rather take one more marine.

Actually I would do it depending on how many points were left and what type of army I were playing. Seeing as the only marine based army I have right now is deathwing, 15 points to upgrade a pair of lightning claws on a commander doesn't sound so bad when you consider for me to get an extra marine I would have to pay 3 times that amount. So if I'm at say 1835 pts with my deathwing and need another 15 to get that 1850 (and assuming that I can't use that 15 pts for something else, like say a venerable upgrade or something...) I could definitely see using it like that.

I'd never use it either...except perhaps on a combi-melta, but I don't take them any more. I may not be able to find a use for 15 points alone, but if I can strip other unnecessary luxuries from other units I can normally scrape together enough points for something worthwhile.
