Lets make a tier list for melee weapons.

ex: Halberd- God Tier

>> No.9765279

shit tier - katana

>> No.9765291


>> No.9765354

So who else likes Planescape?

>> No.9765394

>plan escape.

>> No.9765406

Damned lawyers, always twisting my words.

>> No.9765418

Oh god my skull tier - Lucerne Hammer

>> No.9765423

I, for one, like the new variant it adds to Magic. Whether it's my opponent or my pulling shenanigans, shenanigans will be pulled.

Hilarious to watch and play with in a 6 man, Free-for-All EDH game.

>> No.9765449


oh yeah cos awesomely strong and sharp heirloom weapons are shit.

you're a fucking dickweed. katanas are so cash money.

>> No.9765485

seriously? halberds look unwieldy as fuck, you've got this whole long pole and then this tiny axe head on the end. Why not go greatsword, then you've got a couple feet of deadly steel there instead of just more pole.

>> No.9765499

Pole gives you more leverage and the extra poky bits on the halberd give you plenty of options for killan.

>> No.9765518

Bah, any good Dorf'd tell ya that greatswords are a massive waste of metal. You can make three maces with the same quantity of material.

>> No.9765519


Halberd was an effective weapon, though. Stabby or Choppy. You can't exactly use a greatsword as a defensive stabbing weapon.

>> No.9765593


>> No.9765627

Mo' like "twin-linked OH GOD MY ARMS ARE BROKEN!"

>> No.9765650

Alpharius, the personification of the term "Arguing with Yourself".

>> No.9765656

Oh my god, that is genius, cross-linking the gas operation so they fire alternately. If I had made one I would probably link both firing mechanisms to the same trigger and get stupid recoil.

5.56 isn't as much recoil as you imagine it to be.

>> No.9765663

We are all Alpharius.

>> No.9765666

Spoken like someone who's never fired a 5.56 rifle.

>> No.9765676

Except for that guy over there. He's Omegon.

>> No.9765691

Ugly-As-Sin Tier

>> No.9765694

Actually, I've got brittle bones. I risk shattering my wrists if I fire anything more than a .38

>> No.9765700

Hey guys. This seems like a good place to ask.

Why don't Space Marines use katanas? Space Marines are the finest warriors ever created, after all. Each one finely honed from only the best of human stock. Folded a million times into the finest fighters known to man.

Shouldn't they be using the best weapon ever created? With Space Marine strength, they could do more than just cut tanks in half. They could cut titans in half. Maybe even whole tomb worlds.

>> No.9765713

It does look unwieldy, but history has shown that it's a pretty popular weapon a long with other polearm weapons. Try mock fighting with a broomstick halberd. It's probably a lot easier than learning to use a sword effectively.

>> No.9765722


>> No.9765733

Because they couldn't figure out how to add enough chainsaw or electricity to it to make it fuckawesome enough for the emperor's chosen warriors.

>> No.9765767

Oh come now Fuuka, you're better than that.

And it's been said before, it's a "Masterwork Bastard Sword."

>> No.9765772

This is the best fucking idea anyone's ever had.
I'm going to fucking make this in Dark Heresy.

>> No.9765778

they have guns

>> No.9765781

I'm lenin' towards ranking this one high.

>> No.9765787


>> No.9765790

You'd still need a Best Mono-edged katana to beat a Masterwork Bastard Sword imo.

>> No.9765799

>> No.9765821

Who touched Dana?! Who touched my revolver?!

>> No.9765843

Lightsaber + Magical Girl = you're fucking dead tier

>> No.9765883

I'm building a chainsword in my garage.

It's a terrible idea for a melee weapon, but I'm going to give it an actual engine so it revs. The body is out of break-bent aluminum, the engine is from one of those big speedboat RC models that go 180 mph.

>> No.9765895

By the Emperor, when did Sailor Moon go khornate on us?

Cool, tell us about your prosthetic leg when you're done?

>> No.9765930

Man, if I had prosthetic limbs I'd put guns and swords and computers and shit inside them. Who cares if they don't look like natural flesh.

>> No.9765944


I work for a tree trimming service, so I use chainsaws all day. I'm not worried.

>> No.9765947

Looks a bit like the shotguns from Marathon.

Bare hands- Numbskull Tier

The Emperors' finest tier

>> No.9766001

Actually, you can liken the difference between a bastard sword and a katana as that between a shotgun slug and a flechette round. The bastard sword/slug relies partially on kinetic impact to do damage, and it's the only reason it defeats armor. European swords with the pointed tip were given that to stab through armor or chainmail in the gaps. The katana and the flechettes, however, won't penetrate armor of sufficient thickness or purposeful design. What they will do, however, is take anything not sufficiently armored and reduce it to ribbons (or in the flechettes' case, hamburger).

I have a question: does the strength of a power sword depend on the field or the steel under it? If the latter is true, hard, not-as-sharp blades like the bastard sword are ideal. If the reverse is true, a power-katana would be a monster- the field might give it the edge vs. armor.

>> No.9766063

Deactivated power swords are dull; it's the field that gives the sword its cutting power. Ideally, you'd want something as light and high strength as possible while you let the power field do the hard work for you.

>> No.9766078

lochaber axe -Greater than Halberd tier

>> No.9766120

I've got this theory that Space Marines only use Chainswords because they could put *anything* through a man's torso.

They're terribly inefficient, loud, and by all rights they'll probably get stuck in whatever you hit with them.

On the other hand, they're terrifying weapons. They make a horrible whirring, grinding noise, they leave just enough time before killing for the victim to get a good scream off, and there's all kinds of nasty-looking spray. Fits perfectly with the Space Marines' shock trooper description.

On-topic though, halberds are awesome. Choppy, stabby, sword-guardy, pull-you-from-your-fucking-horsey. Good times.

>> No.9766138

inb4 sword hate.

>> No.9766142

Too late.

>> No.9766259

Hmmm. So, an entirely carbon-weave implement in the shape of a blade might be a magnificent power sword. The wonders of allotropy... good god, what happens if you make it with aggregated diamond nanorods?

>> No.9766286

Explain please, I do not completely understand what you are talking about.

>> No.9766303


>> No.9766527


ADNRs are, simply put, the hardest substance known to man. Diamonds scratch glass, ADNR scratches diamond. Take existing carbon fullerene- the carbon nanotubes that everyone likes to talk about- and form that into a diamond.

I'm not exactly explaining this well, but I hope this helps.
