Hespithe, mastercrafting the crozius is a really bad idea.
Mastercraft only lets you reroll *one miss*, not wounds.
Meanwhile the chaplain can reroll *all* misses on a charge. That's more a waste of points than the LCs

Frankly, if you have the points, LCs aren't a bad idea. Being able to reroll misses and failed wounds makes the chaplain a threshing machine. But something to save for big lists

You could still master craft a Chappy's weapon.

He rerolls all misses on a charge.

If YOU are charged, id still want that reroll, regardless of it being jsut one reroll.

I'm not saying it wouldn't come in handy once in a while, but if you're playing him right, you;re not going to need it most of the time. Considering it;s 15 points and will be used, at best, a couple times per game it seems less valuable per point than the LCs would be since they get used much more often

Oh, yeah, I'm in no way advocating it. I was just saying.

I'd definitely want those LCs.

I was going to do this for my deathwing chappy before the codex came out and ruined my plans.

As far as other chapters go, twin lightning claws only makes sense if he's leading a unit of lightning claw equipped Terminators. Even then , it's expensive.

Why not just take one set of LC, take the better chaplian, give him termie hnrs or armor? Hell still get an impressive amount of attacks, and on the charge hell get rerolls to mis as well.

My marshal told me to tell you to say that to his face.....

It's only an extra 5 points to give him both LCs...so why not give him both?

Hang his crozius on his belt
