The wording of the fire-points section of the chimera entry in the new dex is... iffy. All six fire points are listed as "in reality" being shot from the lasgun emplacements. I'm pretty sure that you can fire nothing but lasguns from these fire-points. Basically, I want other people's opinion on whether you can fire, say, a grenade launcher, a plasma gun, a psychic choir plate, a primaris psyker blast ect... from the chimera. I'm fairly certain that with the RAW, you cannot. While I do love the reduction in cost, the loss of the ability to fire special/heavy weapons out of the hatch is an even trade for that (X) pt cost difference (didn't know if point difference was kosher here, so figured I'd play it safe.)
as far as i have seen people talking about it, it seems you can shoot anything. one of my favorate ideas flowating about is the plasma or melta "Imperial Gangsta - drive by" technique.
I have the codex and in the new one it says 5 fire points, not 6 and nowhere does it say that you need to fire lasguns from those fire points. In the codex it says
"Fire Points: Five models can fire from the chimera's top hatch. In reality several are firing from the fixed lasgun emplacements along either flank, but for simplicity we assume all shots to be taken from the hatch." -p. 39 5th ed guard codex

Saw we put a HWS squad in the chimera, does this mean we can fire 2 of 3 from the hatch? 3 guns but the models are now 1 model with 2 wounds so would the take up a fireing slot with the loader?
Ofcourse, bless the overlooked
Yep, just 5 fire points. It's a great way to protect your HWS. I like the drive-by melta-ings.

Just keep in mind that the HWS, if the chimera moves you cannot fire and for anyone else if you move over 6" (cruising or flat-out) no one can fire. <<deleted fast vehicle comment>>
I just love the idea of the rolling cover, and since it is a top hatch that gives 360 firing angle!

Where'd you get the idea that chimeras are fast from?
