Hi all, been a while since I've posted but with the talk of 7th around the corner one of the rumors has me a little concerned. While I see the idea behind the use of pistols in close combat and think it's fairly fluffy addition to mechanics of the game, I'm a little bit apprehensive in the sense that it could spell the end of melee weapons in 40k. If we can use pistols in CC then what need will there be for melee weapons at all, for example, why take a power fist for your SM sergeant if you can take a plasma pistol instead? Think about it, for 10 less points the plasma pistol gives you a S7 AP2 weapon, as opposed to a Sx2 AP2 weapon, so at the expense of 1 S point we get a weapon that strikes at initiative. Thoughts?
