As much as I would like it to be untrue (powerblades are gear, not weapons!), it's been drilled into me so much in my very short amount of time spent here that I cannot help but accept it as truth. It's hard to find a Harlequin thread without that bit coming up.
And I had no intentions of using mimes or walkers anyway, so it looks like I'm set on that end!
One last round of questions, both regarding the EO revision. First, why was it decided to alter the statlines of Great Harlequins and Solitaires? Second, what is Death Dance? It's listed under special rules for those models that have it, but I could find no other mention of it in the CJ list or the revision document.
