I’m really beginning to see the point behind Power Fists.
In our game last night Zach’s Necron Warriors were able to drag my Captain down because of his inability to wound anyone with his Power Sword. It sure looks nice but I’d much rather be mulching Warriors with a Str 8 Power Fist than a Str 4 Power Sword.
I’m going to be replacing the captain with a Veteran Sergeant with Power Fist for the next few games to see how that works.
Update: My Veteran Sergeant with Power Fist is, for the points, far more effective than my Captain ever was. The Veteran Sergeant did some serious damage today and was well worth the cost. Something that hasn’t been the case with the Captain and Power Sword.
