View Full Version : Three Open Fists

Don't know if this has been answered before or not, but what's the point of a model having three weapons with open fists? The upcoming Minions Heavy -- the Swamp Horror -- has them naturally on three of its four weapons, and I know there are other ways for a model to have as many.

So...what's the point, really?

You have to sacrifice all your initials to to make a two-handed throw, and, if I'm reading this correctly, you can only -lock one weapon at a time, so why does each weapon have an open fist?

It boggles the mind.

1. Same weapons have same ability's. So, the reason why he has three open fists is that he has 3x the same weapon.

2. You're able to make a two-handed throw, even while one of your tentacles is locked.

You can't make power attacks when locked, though. IIRC.

There is no reason aside from the obvious question there would arise if only 2 of the 3 tentacles had open fists. "Why doesnt the last tentacle have open fist, it has the same stats!"
Its just the same weapon thats all, dont think too much.

Rules forum isn't for "what's the point?" type questions. Yes, it has three open fists.
