Default Lash Whips

I am a little confused about the lash whips biomorph.
When it says "loses one attack in the assault phase" does that mean if I was being attacked by a unit with 3 attacks a model, would it then get 2 attacks in the first assault phase, and then 1 in the assault phase after that?

Other question is are the effects lasting? Does a model with two attacks walk away from a lash whipping with only one attack?

Fluff wise it seems ridiculus, but the rules are incredibally vague, the only thing I can thing of is that the model is so demoralised after being whipped (sexual harrassment can do that) that it decides not to attack as many times as it once did...
...
... But that is just silly

You should really check the FAQ...

Quote:
Page 31, Lash Whips, second paragraph.
The paragraph should be changed as follows:
Enemy models fight with one less attack (to a
minimum of 1), for each Tyranid equipped with a
lash whip they are in base contact with.
It seems as some might say, the FAQ wins...

Models only lose 1 attack while in base contact, when they walk away, they'll have there normal number of attacks...

As a librarian you should know that flame baiting is not encouraged... you should really read the forum rules.

Thankyou for your help... no really, thanks

Think of it this way: You have a brood of 3 warriors each with lash whips. They get assaulted by Assault Marines, who lets say get 3 attacks on the charge. For each warrior they are in base contact with they lose -1 attack to a minimum of one, as they marines are too busy being entangled/fighting off the whips.
