Bastard Sword

Close Combat Weapon
Attacks made with this weapon gain +2 Strength, +2 Armour Penetration, and always strike at Initiative Step 0 (regardless of the wielder’s Agility). In the First Round of Combat, it may instead be used as a Spear if the wielder is Infantry or as a Light Lance if the wielder is not Infantry. All R&F models in the unit must use the weapon in the same way. A Bastard Sword can be enchanted as if it was a Great Weapon.
