What is a STEEL WHIP?Vexxus 05-15-2008

The following is directly from the free content available at http://www.specialist-games.com/mordheim :

Availability: Common (Sisters of Sigmar only).

Another weapon unique to the Sisterhood is the  steel whip, made from barbed steel chains.
Range Strength Special rules
Close Com As user Cannot be parried, whipcrack

SPECIAL RULES
Cannot be parried: The steel whip is a flexible
weapon and the Priestesses use it with great
expertise. Attempts to parry its strikes are futile.
A model attacked by a steel whip may not make
parries with swords or bucklers.

Whipcrack: when the wielder charges they gain
+1A for that turn. This bonus attack is added
after any other modifications. When the wielder
is charged they gain +1A that they may only use
against the charger. This additional attack will
‘strike first’. If the wielder is simultaneously
charged by two or more opponents they will
still only receive a total of +1A. If the wielder is
using two whips at the same time then they get
+1A for the additional hand weapon, but only
the first whip gets the whipcrack +1A.
______________

Also, I managed to find some rule ammendments on the same site but much harder to find by browsing... how is that for dedication...


Page 85, Steel Whip weapon stat line
Under range, replace “4"” with “Close combat”:

Under special rules, replace “reach” with “whipcrack”:

Page 85, Steel Whip special rules
Replace the reach special rule with:
“Whipcrack: when the wielder charges they gain +1A for that turn. This bonus attack is added after any other modifications. When the wielder is charged they gain +1A that they may only use against the charger. This additional attack will ‘strike first’. If the wielder is simultaneously charged by two or more opponents they will still only receive a total of +1A. If the wielder is using two whips at the same time then they get +1A for the additional hand weapon, but only the first whip gets the whipcrack +1A.”




Enjoy!!!

Yes Sojo, they can't parry the attack! Additionally, it looks like it used to have the ability to range attack from 4" but they replaced that with having an extra attack when charging or charged, both have their pros and cons, but this item seems like a steal for the price Happy

Got an idea for that model you've always wanted to make, but couldn't find the means to convert it? Seen that bit of artwork and thought 'That would be an awesome model'? Give Warplock a PM, any sculpting/converting request considered Wink

not realy, there like a chain, but spiky...they where a real weapon, a chain, but each segment had a razor blade attached to either side, running the length of the link. this weapon could easily cause some serious damage. one lashing from that and the slavbe is obediant...well the rest of them, that ones probably dead but hey, it's a slave

RE: What is a STEEL WHIP?Hashut's Blessing 05-16-2008

Fair enough. Remonds me of a kind of sword (I can't remember the name), that was like a flexible ribbon of metal that was curled up and used to ensare weapons and used like a whip, usually having multiple blades. Just as likely to kill you as them. More likely if you're untrained...

It would be used to make an example rather than as a punishment. A normal flogging is bad enough but with a steel whip it would almost certainly be fatal. Personally I thought the old rules were better - you could use the whip to hold off opponents using the ranged attack then run away next turn without having the risk of close combat

RE: What is a STEEL WHIP?cianty 05-18-2008

If anyone cares...

Steel whips were originally introduced with the Sisters of Sigmar warband (in the core rulebook) and - unless I'm mistaken - those are the only GW models with steel whips. There aren't even many of them, but this is what they look like:



Hope this helps a bit.

Good old nuns. A friend of mine went to a convent school and from what she says they were much like this! At least she's not dressed like some of the other female models in WFB *shudder*
