    What has been your experience with plasma. I am starin at my bits and my new CSM box and really tempted to make four CSMs with plasma weapons. Am I foolish? I think having a weapon that will kill the user is kind of "Fluffy" for Chaos.

    you can have only one plasma gun in a squad, unless your aspiring champion has a plasma pistol or something (pg 28 of chaos codex)

    Actually you can have two as long as you don&#39;t take a heavy weapon. And with my experience plasma weapons are pretty good for the right units, this being units that you don&#39;t plan to move much during the game, such as a chaos space marine squad with bolters and a heavy weapon. There really good against marines and crons. Though my favorite unit to put them on has to be bikers. Cutting down 4 marines in the shooting phase and then charging is alot of fun =D

    Plasma is the best support weapon for CSM squads, if you look at versatility. It can punch through any infantry armour, is strong enough to blow up most vehicles, and it&#39;s the only weapon that fires like bolters. The other weapons are more useful on a squad that&#39;s going to assault and thus get very close to the enemy.

    melta guns rock too man&#33; Dont&#39; to be too hasty, they&#39;re an asset I think, especially if you&#39;re fighting against an army with vehicles. They will eat right through most armored vehicles.

    mmmmmmmmm, plasma.

    I LOVE plasma just like BiD said its very very versatile. i think that it more than balances out the risk of getting burned.

    anyways, i think that plasma is the best special weapon to have nut you shouldnt forget about melta weapons for your rhino squads.

    Plasma is great. Better range than melta. For a melta to be truly effective to its full potential, it needs to be within 6", or just within 12" to shoot at all. A plasma gun can fire twice standing still at that range. And the risk of getting burned isnt THAT bad when you have a 3+ save to back it up. In my BT army, I have a PC and 2 Plasma guns. I barely even have to make a save in half the games I play, let alone having a guy fail it.

    I agree, plasma is great, you should try getting close to theenemy and using the standard of fortitude, you can get so many plasma shots especially if your people all have plasma guns and the ones who can&#39;t have combi-plasmas, it works wonders against really expensive units


    Although you shouldn&#39;t dissmiss melta weapons, a squad in a rhino with a melta gun can run towards enemy tanks and destroy them. They are also really good against high-toughness people like deamon princes
