Topics: Sword - Wikipedia

A sword is a bladed weapon intended for slashing or thrusting that is longer than a knife or dagger. The precise definition of the term varies with the historical epoch or the geographical region under consideration. A sword consists of a long blade attached to a hilt. The blade can be straight or curved. Thrusting swords have a pointed tip on the blade, and tend to be straighter; slashing swords have sharpened cutting edge on one or both sides of the blade, and are more likely to be curved. Many swords are designed for both thrusting and slashing.

Historically, the sword developed in the Bronze Age , evolving from the dagger; the earliest specimens date to about 1600 BC. The later Iron Age sword remained fairly short and without a crossguard. The spatha , as it developed in the Late Roman army , became the predecessor of the European sword of the Middle Ages, at first adopted as the Migration period sword , and only in the High Middle Ages , developed into the classical arming sword with crossguard. The word sword continues the Old English , sweord . [1]

The use of a sword is known as swordsmanship or (in an early modern or modern context) as fencing. In the Early Modern period , western sword design diverged into roughly two forms, the thrusting swords and the sabers.

Just something I've been throwing around in my head for a while. It's an extension from Mathhammer, kind of, but it's more out of a need to add some variety into our macroweaponry.   I can't claim that it's anywhere near balanced. But for the most part, I used the language or the rules already provided in the Core Rulebook, Into the Storm, and Battlefleet Koronus.     Version 0.1 - Click Here !
