does the banner affect plague priests in the unit as well, or does it specifically say only plague monks are affected?

It says plague monks, so the plague priest won't be affected.
The FAQ doesn't say anything on the matter.

The FAQ does not address the issue.

However, it seems obvious to me that the Plague Priest is a "type of" Plague Monk model.

thats more or less what my concerns are. i know the item specifically mentions plague monks, i was also wondering if there was some kind of over-arching stipulation along the lines of "any rule that applies to plague monks applies to any pestilens model," or something of the sort.

Not yet-! Skaven can only be hopeful for the next FAQ- after all the erta clarified that multiple Deathrunners can have weeping blades & smoke bombs- but they did not say multiple bombardiers can have deathglobes.

To be honest, I don't expect the next Skaven army book to address such issues. If anything there will likely be different issues. :)

Maybe like lore attributes & powered up spells-?
It is absurd that the lowly fireball has more damage output than warplighting....

I dont think that skaven are in a good position to complain about how little damage their spells can cause.......

It's quite clear that it doesn't apply to priest so I won't be expecting an errata. If it was meant to be used by plague priest, then it'll say to affect "Plague Disciples" as priest, monks, censers all have that official tag

I can't find anywhere where it's implied that priests are monks

I'd say go for it. I'd allow it and expect it to be used that way. I'd also like to say I'm glad i don't play any of you who would fight that a Priest and a Monk are so different.

It happens more then once that characters are not included from such unit-wide effects.
(See empire priests giving hatred for example).
