im so sad about this.. in the old codex i could have my infantry Sargents have lasguns, but now im forced to give them pistole and CC weapon? really sux coz i modded all my sargents to have las guns, im going to call games workshop up on monday and complain about this. it also makes in a pain in the shooting phase now that i have to worry about the sargent having diff weapon and range than the rest of the squad.
arrr * rage *

i know, it sucks. why would we want an extra attack in combat, we might kill something and then not flee.

At least they gave them a free Ld bump, or I would have cried.
Its not so much the rules and having 1 less lasgun in a squad that bothers me. Its the extensive remodeling of so many sergeants scrounging up laspistols or close combat weapons, or holsters. It kind of limits the number of squads I can field with ease without getting more close combat weapons. Im pretty much limited to 100 men tops now.
I wouldn't worry about it to much. Do all your Guardsmen have CCWs? If not YOU'RE CHEATING! Except no one cares. :]
Hey when The newer dexes came out. I called GW and told then they can make a rule book for crap now days. I still use my Sgt's with autoguns and If an enemy player has a problem with it I'll tell them to bite my shiny metal a$@. In any case I haven't came across anyone who had a problem with the sgt's having lasguns.

Well you don't want to be kicked out of a tournament on a technicality do you? Guardsmen close combat weapons for normal troops = bayonet, no?
The irony is that in the 5th Rulebook, in the back with the pics - the coolest IG mini is that Catachan Sergeant with the BOLTGUN.
I'm a reasonable guy. But, I've just experienced some very unreasonable things.
That's a bit of a bugger, but the higher LD is useful for orders though. I have no problem with sargents still having lasguns anyway.
