Default Death Company Attacks

Death company have the Rage universal special rule now which gives +2 attacks (According to my friend; I don't own the rule book). If I give my Death Company a Bolt Pistol and a Chain Sword then they have an additional CCW (Presuming the new rules haven't changed for this) which means +1 attacks. They have 2 attacks basic. Will they get 5 attacks each? 6 on a charge?

Does furious charge offer any additional attacks?

No they gt 5 on the charge, rage means that you get +2 attacks on the chage instead of +1 as usual so you'll get 3 basic 5 when charging.

Rage gives an additional attack on the charge, so +2 instead of +1.

Hence, Death Company with 2 attacks basic, and BP/CCW (or equivalent), and Rage have 3 attacks normally, 5 on the charge.

Give them Jump Packs, and they get an additional I10 attack on the charge, hitting at their base strength with AP-.

Bear in mind that despite the benefits, each one of those costs 35pts. However, 10 JP Death Company do weigh in with 60 Attacks on the charge (50 at S5), for 350pts.

However, they don't score - this can be got around, however, by running a Character (Astorath, most likely, for the Power Weapon and Rerolls to hit and wound) with Personal Traits, and hoping you roll a 6, so that he counts as scoring.

Furious Charge does not offer additional attack, it only offers +1 strength.

That sounds a lot less mean, but still pretty awesome. Thanks for your replies.

It is pretty awesome for Death Company, especially since Rage doesn't allow them to be kited anymore. But, I'm looking toward my Death Company Dreadnought with Blood Talons now. Six attacks on the charge with re-rolls to wound, causing additional wounds. It's a shame they are only AP 3, but I should still obliterate most units.

That sounds pretty epic. Might get one when I push to 2000 points. Though I'm not sure when that'll be happening as this 1500 is costing my 300. That's a lot for someone who's just finished their A-Levels.

LOL. Now if only you could gaurantee getting the new Invisiblity Psychic Power. Everything being WS 1 against it would be quite nice too.

Only downside is Blood Talons are only AP3 but the dread is still good at killing swarms, I just cant use him as a Wolf Guard shredder now
