Thanks Todd but we've pretty much already cleared that all up.
However, I think it's EXTREMELY silly logic to think that a unique, army-only individual item isn't what it's represented as.
If my army book calls it "Lance of Butt Kicking", it's a lance. It doesn't suddenly become "Sword of Butt Kicking" because it's not a generic, any army item -- it's a specific, designed item for a single army.
"Sword of Might" can easily be "Axe of Might" because it gains/loses no additional rules in the meantime. However your "Sword of Might" can't suddenly become "Lance of Might" because a "lance" is specifically described as having certain rules. Nor can it become "Trebuchet of Might" or "Longbow of Might."
The rules are set to encourage dynamic modelling and to add variety in an otherwise generic item, but to change something as individual and game changing as it's weapon type (sword of might to Halberd of Might) is outside of the realm of what is okay to do, as well as saying something like "Heartwood Lance" is not a lance. This is along the same lines as the people who say "great daemons are not daemons."
In addition, Brets specifically are allowed to use their magical lances in multiple turns (of course without the +2 strength as this is specifically only given on the charge) and likewise are allowed to use a lance the turn they charge and then use another weapon after, as an army specific feature. Both these override the rulebook.
Thanks Rob but that was already cleared up before I recleared and now you recleared it up.
WTF? You rag my post and then almost copy and paste me.
