From what I understand of the new rules for pistols. You can no longer "double tap" shots at 12". For the life of me I cant remember if the Combi-plasma "karmoon special" had the stats of a plasma rifle or a plasma pistol. If its the later then it looks like Termi's have been nerfed from a 4man being able to pump out 8 plasma shots to 4 shots.
Also with the change to "line of sight" rules. What is the official rule for sizing of units now. I dislike all the Current demon prince models and wanted to convert a slaneesh one out of the new masque model from the new demon codex. But although I will be sticking it on the same "larger base" do I have to put on HUGE wings now to make up for its small size. Or have they decided to make it that if the model is small it won't be able to see many targets to lash. But would be harder to target. But if you make it large you can lash everything in range, but get shot by more targets.

"to take advantage of Line Of Sight"
I don't remember saying that. I think you misunderstood the paragraph above. I said I wanted to use the masque model since I dislike the current demon prince models.
I think I will just make sure the raised model + wings are the same height. And the talon to talon, front to back wingspan cover's the same area of space as a normal demon prince. Then all they need to do is be able to see a hand or a foot and count as being able to shoot at the whole model.
I'm glad the plasma are guns and not pistols for a minute there I almost regretted already started work on the Termi's.
Well, the wings do not count for LOS drawing purposes. Only the limbs, the head and the torso do.
"Unless 5th edition is different than 4th, only the torso counts for LOS on non-vehicles."
Oh really 0.o well then I've been way off in the past, letting my models get shot up.
I have the 4th edition rulebook right here and going to buy the 5th tomorrow. I'm going to take another good look through there again. But I wonder do you happen to know where you read that? Or just learn that through experience since you've probably played for longer than me >_<
Wait wait....Pistols are no longer 2 shots?
My Berzerkers just got a swift kick to the groin.
They just lost 8 shots to thin out whatever they're about to kill.
The local Nid and Ork players will be happy to hear this...
