    Plasma

    I know "gets hot" affects troops, but what about Dreads? Also, bikes? If the weapon is mounted on the bike, does get hot still apply? What about if the guy on the bike is holding the plasma?

    R.I.P. Iron Warriors, you will be missed.

    Dreads, no. Bikes, yes.

    Dreads count as vehicles, so are not subject to the Gets Hot! rule. Bikes are not vehicles, so are subject to the rule, even if you make the claim that the gun is mounted on a platform.

    Punted to Rules Help.

    Think of it this way: if the Plasma weapon blows up in the Biker's face, he's either dead from the overheat itself or, failing that, from the subsequent crash since he's just got a face full of plasma.

    As for a Dread? There's 10 tons of armour plating between the plasma and anything else - kinda like a flea biting an elephant, eh?

    Like Caluin said, it's all explained in the rules - only vehicles are immune, and Bikers are really just a modified form of infantry.
    We've got plenty of youth... How about a fountain of smart?

    actually the fluff says that there are extra coolants available on vehicle mounted Plasma Weapons. So they don't overheat.

    (in addition to the tons of armour)
    Shut up and play.
