I understand what he was saying. Thanks.
And I say to both you and Aramoro that that is clearly stupid and based on no other ruling than 'la, la, la, he won't listen, la, la, la, I won't listen'.
There is one universally agreed upon amendment, instead of getting +1 Strength he gets Double Strength (8).
That amendment doesn't negate, power weapon, roll of 1 or two handed.
So why does a second amendment to the D6 ruling suddenly rule out the other two..
Because it ISN'T an amendment. It says "Abaddon gets +D6 attacks from his Daemon Weapon." As I've said before, this does not, in ANY WAY, contradict the entry on Daemon Weapons, where it says that a Daemon Weapon grants the bearer +D6 attacks. Which means it isn't an amendment, as it doesn't change anything, meaning it could only be there as a reminder. (As an aside, the reason I keep bringing up the fact that it's a reminder is because a reminder is NOT a rule, which means you can RAW it all you want, it doesn't have an effect on the rules; it's simply reminding you of the rules already written down.) The only reason you believe that reminder negates the Daemon Weapon rule of rolling ones is because it doesn't mention that a roll of one will result in a wound on the bearer. As we've been saying, using your logic, it does not mention it being a power weapon or two-handed, so it isn't those either. I don't know why you claim that we should be ignoring the negative "roll of 1 results in no attacks and a wound on yourself" but we shouldn't ignore the positive "power weapon" - oh wait, yes I do, it's because you want Abaddon to be better, not worse. They're both rules regarding Daemon Weapons.
Here's the thing, D-A-C; the above scenario is pointless, because the asterisked text is NOT a rule that negates anything. As I've already pointed out, as have many people, this is most likely a reminder. That's why, as I've said before, the asterisk draws your attention to this when you're looking at how many attacks Abaddon has, not what special rules he has regarding Daemon Weapons. I've already given you an example of how GW can be inconsistent, which might explain why the reminder appears on Abaddon's page and not Typhus'; in retrospect, I shouldn't have had to give you an example, there are thousands all over this rules discussion forum. In fact, it would be fair to say the Rules Discussion page wouldn't exist if GW wasn't so inconsistent, vague and just-plain-daft with their rules.
You may have noticed that "As I've already said" is a kind of motif in my last two paragraphs. It's because all these points have already been brought up before, you've simply refused to give them credence, instead dumbing them down to "I don't like the font" and "lalala, I'm not listening". You have no idea how frustrating it is to be told that you're not listening by someone who keeps asking the same questions and refusing to acknowledge the same answers for over 10 forum pages. I realize there have been some stupid "counter-arguments" like insulting your intelligence and calling you a troll. Kindly rise above it and stop belittling everyone else's arguments.
I claim, as does most everyone else, that it's a reminder. But there's no real way to prove if it's a reminder or not, short of asking GW yourself. (I've already done.) So we must go with the most likely scenario:
A) One of the writers placed that asterisked rule next to Abaddon's attacks to remind readers to factor in that he gets +D6 attacks from his Daemon Weapon, then either another one did Typhus' page and didn't bother with the reminder, or the same one did and they just forgot that they had included a reminder on the other page, and the editors missed this inconsistency.
B) One of the writers, when considering what "The effect of these two powerful artefacts" was, tallied up the differences between Abaddon's and a regular Lord's Daemon Weapon: doubles his strength instead of usual +1, re-rolls failed rolls to wound, and the weapon doesn't rebel on a one. Then he thought, "Alright, I'll write down those first two differences as "The effect of these two powerful artefacts means that Abaddon counts as Strength 8 (to Strength 8, as shown in his profile) instead of the normal +1, and he may re-roll any failed roll to wound in close combat." and then he decided to write the last rule in a different font, and seperate it from the others, and use an asterisk to draw the reader's attention to it when he's figuring out how many attacks Abaddon has, and instead of writing "Abaddon's Daemon Weapon does not rebel on a roll of 1." he wrote "Abaddon has +D6 Attacks from his Daemon Weapon." so that it sounded like a reminder of how many attacks Abaddon has, and not a special rule. And then the editors missed this retardedness.
I don't know about you, but I'm going with option A.
