Default Combi Weapons

Hi, I've been playing Tau for awhile but am dissatisfied with their lack of head-bashing ability. So I've decided to start playing Alpha Legion but in writing up my army list I've come across an issue.

Can you have some other kind of weapon other than a bolter as the main weapon in a combi weapon?

I really want my Chaos Lord and Chaos Sorcerer to both have combi-meltas but I don't know if that means that the meltagun would only have 1 shot or if the meltagun is the main component and whatever else I put onto it would be the 1 shot part.

Army Lists are to be posted into the Army Lists sub-board. Your Army List has now been moved to: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=67197.0 - Anton.

We have two different types of Bolter variants available to Chaos Space Marines, the first is the Twin-Linked Bolter, which, as it's name states, is a twin-linked Bolter. The second is the Combi-Weapon, where you can choose to have either a Flamer, Meltagun or Plasmagun combined with a standard Boltgun.

Example, a Chaos Lord with a Combi-Melta would have one shot per battle of the Meltagun part of the Combi Weapon, but the Bolter part of the weapon can be fired throughout the game (except in the same turn you fire the Meltagun part of the weapon,) the same applies for the Chaos Sorcerer.

Nope, sorry. A combi-weapon is a basic bolter but has the capability to shoot one specialist round. Like if you wanted that last ditch flamer attempt before you charged into combat, or maybe you need an anti-vehicle shot in a pinch... however, to get the effect of two specialist weapons you have to buy them individually.
