However the calculator does not factor in the increasing strength per hit the biting blade makes.

Do the shuriken pistols in the sabres count as 2 pistols or 1 twin linked pistol?

depends what it says in the codex, if its 2 pistols then its 2 pistols, but silly since you can only fire one pistol as a none monstrous creature without any special rules, you'd have to check how its worded.Do the shuriken pistols in the sabres count as 2 pistols or 1 twin linked pistol?

Okay:However the calculator does not factor in the increasing strength per hit the biting blade makes.

Let's assume your exarch is charging and hitting on a 3+, 4+ will be considerably less nice than this.

He has a:

1% chance of missing all hits

10% chance of hitting only once (at S5)

30% chance of hitting twice (S6)

40% chance of hitting three times (S7)

20% chance of hitting four times (S8)

Obviously I've rounded; less obviously, I've rounded to the nearest 1%, so those figures are quite accurate.

That's pretty impressive; you've got 90% odds of going on to wound on a 2+, presuming you're charging T4.

I guess you might want it vs vehicles as well. Obviously, if you autohit, kiss your sweet 4 S8 hits hello. If you hit only on sixes, forget it. Hitting on a 4+:

6% chance to miss all hits

25% chance to hit once

38% chance to hit twice (you are now at S6, welcome to 'as good as the power fist' territory)

25% chance to hit three times

6% chance to hit all times

So you've got a 69% chance to be as good as or better than the power fist versus vehicles.

I'm impressed; I don't really use scorpions, so I've never bothered looking at them. But I like these figures for the biting blade.

For Chainsabres yes, Biting Blade no. Biting blade is the one that stacks the number of hits

I always thought that the BB was a two-handed weapon so you couldn't take another option. For me it's BB all the way, particularly if you get stuck facing something big and tough you weren't expecting.I know the OP decided the Scorpion's Claw was too pricey, but a very popular option (one I tend to take myself) is taking both the Claw and the Biting Blade.
