Ah, SM great weapon.... thought it very strange that a butcher could have one but that a Sm couldn't, makes me a happy bunny. Still don't think I'll ever give him magic armour though... some things are just wrong, dispite what others may say (like being able to give a SM the armour of destiny instead of the talisman of preservation alongside his ironfist: you've just upped his 6+/4++ to 4+/4++ to a measly 5pts, and can choose other shiny talismans to go with it... ridiculous.
Its quite fun that BSBs can have great names... I might have to look them up again since I had written them off as useless. EG- Mawseeker, which I thought was useful but not great quadrupled in value in this book... but its now not a bad option for a BSB. T6 and you get an instant reroll on that stupidity test and can shove the standard of discipline on the standard. Your BSB instantly becomes Ld9 and pretty damn nails to boot... I might have to get a BSB now instead of taking a small unit of ironguts with discipline to shove in as skragg/SM guard.
