i was just looking through my new chaos space marine codex, with which i plan on building a nurgle based army from, and i noticed something in the chaos lord options section. what i noticed was that it states that you only have to replace the close combat weapon to get a pair of lightning claws. so does this mean that he/she still retains his/her bolt/plasma pistol? i noticed that in other options lists (chosen,terminators, raptors) that in order to get 2x lightning claws they have to replace their ccw/power weapon AND bolt pistol/twin bolter. i am asking because, if the lord can keep his/her pistol with 2x lightning claws, i was thinking of having a nurgle lord with 2x lightning claws and converting one of them to have a built-in bolt or plasma pistol. also, i hope my grammar is correct so i do not get scolded, lol. thanks.
i just read it and by what it states yes he would retain his bolt pistole.
I would have to agree as far as RAW but it shouldnt be that big of an advantage.

Yes, you can have double LC and Plasma/Bolt pistol, just like in the DA/BA dex.

You wanna talk about loaded down Lords, imagine this:
He replaces his close combat weapon with a pair of lightning claws, swaps his bolt pistol for a plasma pistol, and in addition may take a combi-plasma. He's got 5 hands worth of weapons. But it would be to little tactical advantage because he'd always be wasting something.
However, this will give me the opportunity to use my extra Abaddon's claw to represent said combi-bolter!!
Talking about which: what's the point for Abaddon's of having his combi bolter on the claw since he could carry one on his side?

thanks for the help people! i was just wondering because i thought it would be a cool looking conversion. i am not saying i would ever spend the points on a plasma pistol AND 2x lightning claws, i was mainly asking for the bolt pistol. if he is gonna have it already, i might as well model it in and take the single bolt pistol shot before charging. thanks again.
