Just a quick question. Can Terminators use Relic Blades one handed? They seem to use a lot of other things one handed, and I can't think of any instances of a Terminator using a 2 handed weapon. (Probably can't get his arms together). Is there an actual rule for this or are people house-ruling? Thanks

Based on the wiki and minatures (not any FF RPG rules) Logan Grimnar (who wears terminator armor) wields the axe morkai wich the wiki classifies as a relic blade. http://warhammer40k....iki/Relic_Blade


So i'd say terminators can one hand wield relic blades.

It is spelled out on page 164 of the Core Rulebook.

"Weapons typically available with the right couplings for Terminator armour are limited... ...Its [The terminator armor's] weapons must come from the list below."

"Terminator-Compatible Weapons: Any combi-weapon, Power Weapon or Force Weapon, Storm Bolter, Storm Shield, Heavy Flamer, Assault Cannon, Cyclone Missile Launcher."


A Relic Blade is a Power Weapon. There is no listed limitation on one vs. two handed weapons. Even terminators have to reload, which would be impossible if they could not bring their hands together.


There is also no rules allowing Terminators to use two handers as one handers, so they will use two handed weapons exactly like everyone else. With two hands.
