Just thinking, a monstrous creature can fire two weapons in the shooting phase, soooooooo, why couldn't a statured demon prince have an ether lance and wind of chaos and fire 2 flamer templates into...whatever he fires it into. it would be pricy, but think of all the toasty marines that would make.
It only makes sense, but I'm no Chaos guru.
How much would this guy cost total?
fun idea, i suggest you try it out in a game and see whether or not it is effective. nice way to overcome the Daemon princes bad BS
That is not dead which may eternal lie,
for in strange aeons even death may die.
Cool idea.. your prince may well get eaten alive by perils of the warp if he tries that too many times though.. Even Ld 10 botches one in 6 rolls. Still, you could probably get a pretty nifty level of marine slaughter from that combo.
Also.. expensive. Stature means you have to protect the prince, which gets pricey.. all in all, I'm not sure it's worthwhile. But you could try.

Hate to do this but..you can use psychic powers in the shooting phase INSTEAD of shooting. not AS WELL AS shooting It's not another gun as such, it replaces gun shooting.
otherwise you have seen loads of daemon princes with spammed up Doom bolts and kai guns etc.
So apologies for weeing on your parade. But I don't think it's an eligible move.
... uh.. where do I wash my hands?
Let's see now... Give him the Mark of Tzeentch to automatically pass those psychic tests. You'd want flight and aura to get into position and still be alive when you get there.
Here's the bare bones of the idea...
Mark of Tzeentch, Daemonic stature, Ether lance, Wind of chaos
Add on the extras you'll be wanting...
Mark of Tzeentch, Daemonic stature, Ether lance, Wind of chaos, CCW, Daemonic Aura, daemonic Flight, Frag grenades.
On the does this work point... The codex entry says "may be fired instead of firing another weapon." Seems to me like you could use it quite comfortably. Seeing that a statured prince can fire one gun, then fire the wind of chaos instead of the second gun, even if it doesn't have one.

Karmoon is correct; you can't fire a ranged waepon and a psi power during the shooting phase. It's an 'either/or' option.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
2. He can have a combi bolter, assault cannon, las cannon, vulcan mega bolter, kannon of khorne, fecal catapault and a defense laser it doesn't make a difference... if he uses a psychic power, then he can't shoot a ranged weapon.
He could have a combi bolter and an ether lance and shoot both.
He could have a kaigun and doom siren and shoot both.
But no psychic powers.
Doombolt - no
Bolt of change - no
Wind of Chaos - no
