Bonus Strength for Weapons
« on: March 10, 2010, 02:54:05 AM »
I am wanting to clarify the bonus Strength and basic Strength of some weapons.

First there is the Sword and Halberd...
Sword
Strength: As user

Halberd
Strength: As user +1

Therefore charging and subsequent rounds of combat will give...
  • Charging with a Sword gives S3 warrior S3 attacks.
  • Subsequent rounds of combat with a Sword gives S3 warrior S3 attacks.
  • Charging with a Halberd gives S3 warrior S4 attacks.
  • Subsequent rounds of combat with a Halberd gives S3 warrior S4 attacks.

Then there is the Flail and the Morning Star...
Flail
Strength: As user +2
Heavy: A flail is extremely tiring to use and thus the +2 Strength bonus applies only in the first turn of each hand-tohand combat.

Morning Star
Strength: As user +1
Heavy: The morning star is extremely tiring to use, so its +1 Strength bonus applies only in the first turn of each hand-to-hand combat.

Therefore charging and subsequent rounds of combat will give...
  • Charging with a Flail gives S3 warrior S5 attacks.
  • Subsequent rounds of combat with a Flail gives S3 warrior S3 attacks.
  • Charging with a Morning Star gives S3 warrior S4 attacks.
  • Subsequent rounds of combat with a Morning Star gives S3 warrior S3 attacks.

Finally there is the Spear, Lance and Horseman's Hammer and this is the reason for my post...
Spear
Strength: As user
Cavalry bonus: If using the rules for mounted models, a mounted warrior armed with a spear receives a +1 Strength bonus when he charges. This bonus only applies for that turn.

Horseman's Hammer
Strength: As user +1
Cavalry Charge: A model armed with a horsemanís hammer may use the speed of his charge to increase the might of his attacks. A model on a steed with a horsemanís hammer gains a further +1 Strength bonus when he charges. This bonus only applies for that turn.

Lance
Strength: As user +2
Cavalry bonus: If using optional rules for mounted models, a warrior armed with a lance receives a +2 Strength bonus when he charges. This bonus only applies for that turn.

From the straight reading of the rules it seems that charging and subsequent rounds of combat will give...
  • Charging on a mount with a Spear gives S3 warrior S4 attacks.
  • Subsequent rounds of combat with a Spear gives a S3 warrior S3 attacks.
  • Charging on a mount with a Horseman's Hammer gives S3 warrior S5 attacks.
  • Subsequent rounds of combat with a Horseman's Hammer gives a S3 warrior S4 attacks.
  • Charging on a mount with a Lance gives S3 warrior S7 attacks.
  • Subsequent rounds of combat with a Lance gives a S3 warrior S5 attacks.

Strenght 7 for a Lance on charge??? Ouch! I have never thought this was the case but reading the rules implies this. So what is it?

I believe you are spot on but the lance does not do not give a S7. It was mistaken inputted that way. It is onlly +2
