You know exactly where this is going. We all had this moment we were just about to maul some random range-melee hybrid dude in the face, but said guy parries, 1/7 dmg. Ok. Another hit...parried 2/7 critical. Seems strange. Last strike... parried 0/7 critical. The next turn, he starts with his higher initiative, gets 4 crit, 5 and 8 crit through my armour and kills of my maul guy with 58 WS. The infamous ithilmar sword. PLEASE, NERF THE DAMNED THING!!!!!! It's too cheap for what it does. Too cheap. Initiative + 10 grants first move, Parry 52 when maxed, still full damage potential, even against 60+ armour. So over the top. I can see it nerfed in 2 ways: if it is supposed to be light = less kinetic energy, lowering the base damage (-10/-5). 2nd option would be add enemy defence, like with the daggers (+15/+10). P.S.arrying with lighter weapon is actually really hard, gives a lot of handshock (especially if said weapon has no hand guard), and you lose the bind, cuz you have little to no mass behind it.
