Seems like GW hadn't thought of this:
Beastmaster Scourge, AP, 4 pts. for Master, 6 for Dreadlord
Biting Blade, AP, magical attacks, 5 pts.
The only reason for a Dreadlord to take a Scourge to me would be that he had no points left for the biting blade, but why would you take the scourge if you can take a biting blade for less points?

1 point isn't that much of a discrepancy. The Scourge is a way to get a decent non magic weapon when your points are spent else where.

Maybe, because it gives +1 Attack also, or +1 AS with a Shield (both while on foot only)?

But seriously, a Dreadlord with a Beastmaster's Scourge or a Biting Blade!?

Too busy with their real life to think what's efficient and rather go with 'that's the second coolest thing I saw today'. ;)

If you take lifetaker as your magic weapon choice.

For models on foot that want an extra attack +AP.

As an alternative to the overwhelming horde of characters
with great weapons all over WFB. I will be able to more thouroughly decide when I have some time pouring over the book.

- o.O

Yeah, maybe in a 10,000pts game I would have used up all other options and so I will take both Biting Blade and Scourges for the bare-hand characters. Maybe.....

take the scorge when you take the item dagger of hotek, you gain 2 CC Weapons +1 A and AP too with magic attacks at always strike first.

to me that looks now a bad combo for a corsair theamed lord.

I wonder if you can do that Lac.Desariel because that's not a half bad combo for a cheapo foot lord...

Or a mounted DreadLord. 5 S4 AP attacks? Sounds fair enough at the point cost it comes with.

Mounted won't work for sure, though. The Handweapon bonuses are only for models on foot.

Take the dagger with a scourge and give him potion of strenght.

- Now, do we know if Scourge is a "normal" hand weapon or just counts as hand weapon for the purpose of combining it with a "normal" hand weapon for the +1 A when on foot. I strongly believe that the second assumption is right and so that renders both the dagger of hotek and the scourge useless IMHO. I presume that the only good option for a foot lord is for him to be within a unit of Black Guards that will surely have the ASF banner anyway so you don't need the dagger....

You can't possibly combine dagger + scourge for a total of 5 ASF attacks with AP I think.

I'd agree. The Dagger is a magical weapon, as far as I've understood, and the Scourge is a "mundane" weapon. Since you can't have a magical weapon + a regular one as an additional hand weapon (thus giving you the +1A for an additional hand weapon), then I can't see this combo working. It's a nice thought though.

This may be a viable option. All the possible combos....it is great to theoryhammer them.
