View Full Version : Chaos Space Marines plasmagun question

05-09-2006, 09:40
Not sure wether this is the right place to ask this but upon buying my third CSM squad i noticed in the special sprue (Asp Champ equipment etc) that there is also a special weapon that seems to be a plasmagun (not the Pl.pistol). Is this correct. It has three holes in the side. Since that would mean i can equip my next squad with Plasma Guns from the sprue.

Yes, the plastic CSM box does have a plasma gun in it. Its just what you think it is (the gun with the wholes in the side and the heatsink on the top like all the plasma weapons).

Aaah tnx! Because i never realized it.
Anyway i'm going to make a next CC squad but i'll be making an additional shootie one soon. Sincei already have a heavy bolter i'll make 2 plasmas and 1 bolter in that one so i can equal the 2 shooties out.

Ive found one of the best units you can field is a basic CSM squad with 2 plasmaguns and an aspiring champion, usually with a power weapon and daemonic strength or a powerfist; infiltrate or at least move through cover with them and they are a nasty little unit. Some people hate them for the overheats but i've never really suffered; i guess its the luck that holds out for me!

Indeed. It mows down the enemy.

If you're not using a Daemon Weapon, it does even better with an Aspiring champion with Kai Gun.

Yeah they're used a lot plasmaguns.
People seem to hate Heavy Bolters though.

I always take a squad with two Plasma Guns and Bolters. If they rapid fire at something it'll melt.

I've never had a big problem with Overheats, one time I even shot down three Landspeeders in one volley. :)

Lol (:
Some people hate the overheat with a passion.

Yeah, that plastic thing in there is indeed a Plasma Gun. I got the Chaos Marine set a few months ago- it's quite nice, and inexpensive for GW's prices. :D

Yeah. I bought my third box of CSM's for only 18 euros at Crusade 2006.
But the previous 2 were a bit more expensive i believe. I think it was over 20 euros or so.
