Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was looking at the picture on the cover of the codex, and noticed that the falcon had a scatter lazer on the closer mount, and it is facing right. Also, uppon closer inspection, the vypers also had their guns on the other side of the guardian gunner.
I know this is just me being nitpicky, but the lance is suposed to be on the right side, not the secondary weapon.
My only guess is that the dire warrior guy in the fore grown looked better to the designers with the sword on the right of the page.... or the painter made a mistake
Try holding your codex up to a mirror to see the picture in the correct way.
Sorry if this has been talked about before.
And your point is ... ???
Well, the artist probably took a few artistic freedoms in order to balance the composition of the picture better, or simply make it look cooler.
Warhammer Fantasy: Warriors of Chaos, High Elves
Warhammer 40k: Eldar, Space Marines, Orks
Yes and there are several more examples of such artistic stuff that is wrong according to the game/fluff.
The hugest example are IMO the picture of Horus and The Emperor at the final hours of the Siege of Terra, that one which is in the rulebook. According to the fluff, Horus had two Talons (ie. lightning claws) and in that pic he have a mace and one talon. Wrong? Yes. Better lookin' then another talon? Yes.
Or like the codex Saim Hann army with a falcon and a prism.

They probably just flipped the picture to make it more pretty or something. They do that in films sometimes - they show you a mirror image of the actual shot taken to make the scenes flow better.
