I never take an extra attack for paired weapons when using Daemons. But are there some units that actually qualify for the extra attack due to two close combat weapons? My son believes that Skarbrand should get the bonus because he is pictured with two axes. But lets break it down: you only get a bonus attack if you have two close combat weapons and your profile doesn't specify that any extra attacks are in your profile already. So Bloodletters and Plaguebearers who have only one sword do not get the extra attack. Any unit with "Rending Claws" do not get the extra attack, because it specifies in the codex that they don't. But what about Pink Horrors, Furies, Flesh Hounds, Skarbrand, Fateweaver, Nurglings, Tzeentch Heralds, Bloodthirsters etc? To me none of them get an extra attack, but I figured I'd ask in case once again I am wrong.
Their attacks are already figured into their stats. Otherwise, it would have to say something like "2 close combat weapons" or "hellblade + close combat weapon". Thus, even though they may be modeled with 2 weapons, they don't get the +1A unless their entry specifically tells you so (by saying they carry a ccw in addition to whatever other weapons they have).

I agree with you 100%, but for the most part, it doesn't even say they have one close combat weapon to begin with! If you look at most codices, you'll see that it carefully says "one close combat weapon" in the entry. I guess the fact it says nothing at all means they get one weapon each. This is what I thought. I've never given any Daemon paired weapons even if my opponent thinks they should have them.
Daemons don't have equipment/wargear in the same way other armies do. Everything is included in their profile, so you don't have to calculate extra CCW attacks for any of their units.
"Any job worth doing, is worth doing with a powerklaw."
Generally, any unmodifiable models (most notably Secpial Chars, but also most Daemons) have profiles which are accurate for their current gear/abilities. Where there is doubt, or they have multiple combinations of gear which you may choose each turn/phase, it writes it in the profile.
There are three types of people in this world -- those who can count, and those who cannot.
