Magic Great Weapons

Post  Xolan on Tue Jul 06, 2010 11:39 am

Another question about magic weapons....

Are all magic weapons considered to be one-handed weapons or can I stay that I am using a Great Weapon verison of the weapon?

Thanks.....

You would follow the descriptor of the weapon from the listing in the army/rule book.

To expand on what Don (Squalie) is saying, if the magic weapon is anything other than a hand weapon it will say in the description. For example, in the wood elf army book there is a magic item called the Spear of Twilight. The description says "counts as a spear..."

If it doesn't have that "counts as a ____" line or some mention as to the type of weapon that it is, then it is a hand weapon. The "Sword of Might" cannot be the "Greatsword of Might".

Likewise with dwarf rune weapons, once you put runes on a weapon it loses all its previous qualities so a runic great weapon loses the +2 strength, strikes last and requires 2 hands rules. The only exception to this is if you put the rune of Kragg the Grim on it, then it retains the rules for a great weapon.

Hope that helps!
