I noticed that the Deathwatch rules allow a Marine to potentially wield two power swords/mauls, and as well, the standard Black Shield model shown in the GW products wields two swords. Is there any bonus for dual wielding like that or is it sadly just a waste of points?

I was wondering the same thing, I'm getting one of the DW sets and saw the guy with 2 swords and loved the model, but does it do anything in KT

And I was wondering also looking at the front cover of KT with the raven guard there. There isnt any option to take lightning claws, theres a raven guard in the death watch box that has them. I know he has a jump pack and you cant use them but theres bo reason not to add in lightning claws

Two Swords: No Bonus, two Mauls: no Bonus, Sword/Maul: you can decide which to use, Lightning Claws: I agree, they axed some weapon options for no reason. Power Axes for example.

When looking at what weapons each faction has - GW kept it pretty simple - units can choose whatever is already packaged in the box without needing anything extra.  The only way DW can model those weapons is dipping into the SM kits.  Even then - there are some weapon options that cannot be taken that are included in the box; DW Veteran box allows building a combi-flamer which is NOT allowed in KT.

I think there's enough variety in the weapons options to be effective - I think some weapons just wouldn't be suitable for this game or a given faction in particular.

Actually I'm pretty sure there's only a combi melta and combi plasma option in the box, as I can vaguely remember being bummed out that there was no combi flamer option in the veteran box. That and no two handed bolter option either. I mean seriously, what the :cuss, no two handed bolter option? Also a question to anyone with the killteam rules, can you legally field Killteam Donatus?

I do find it hilarious that some people were saying the size of newer marine stuff looks great next to regular humans like Cadians, and then GW upsized the humans so they are the same height as marines again :lol: :lol: :lol:

I actually like the 1h Bolters lol, but I also have a LOT of SM bits with 2h.  However, you miss out on the DW Pip-boy and left arm elbow decor.

 

You're more than welcome to field him as a DW Veteran with a bolter / stalker pattern boltgun.  There aren't any rules for "special" characters though.  I expect to see plenty of Rodricus Grytt as a Gunner with Frag Cannon.

I was mainly wondering whether other members of squad Donatus could be used, mainly the DA and SW, firgetten their names, one has a chainsword, the other a plasma pistol. I know Rodricus, Donatus and the Iron Hand are legal, just wondering bout the other two.

Personally I wouldn’t care, as long as you’re consistent with whatever legal wargear loadout you choose. However, I play for fun, fluff, and cool models. I’m sure there will be wysiwyg and hardcore players who won’t.
