Yup, it's in there.

FaQ 1.1 "Chaos Space Marines v1.1_JANUARY13.pdf", page 1:

Q: How do I determine the Arc of Sight for a Heldrake’s ranged
weapon? (p52)
A: Treat the Heldrake’s ranged weapon as a Turret Mounted
Weapon, measuring all ranges from the edge of the Heldrake’s
base nearest to the target unit.

I actually wasn't paying much attention to the 2nd list, but I don't recommend buying power weapons for plague marines. The plague knife is free and plenty good enough, imo.

But yeah, if you're gonna they should definitely be axes.

Thanks Andy. I must have missed that bit in the main rulebook, very interesting. And the importance of that bit about that heldrake was totally lost on me considering I have yet to play with or against a flyer.

When dealing with fliers, it depends on the list you are fielding. If you have tons of bodies then let vendettas shoot lascannons all day, they won't kill enough to make a difference. Unfortunately, that's exactly the type of list that space dragons love to prey on, armies that have lots and lots of bodies.

I agree with Andy on power weapons for plague marines, the knife they come with is good enough for an already expensive one wound model.
Fast, like kittens with jetpacks.

Ok so no PW on plague marines means I have an extra 30 pts...... more zombies? more toys for the biker lord?

Well, if you're not worried about the numerology I'd probably bump up the small zombie squad.

But you seem to love the numbers and mentioned wanting the 4++ on the lord, so that's prob you best choice.
