Ok. Simple question. What is the correct bs/ws skill for the Imperial Guard priest?
The summary in the IG codex and the new Wargear book say one thing, but the entry in the codex say something else. I have heard different opinions on this, but which is correct?

thats the problem, he cant. the codex entry says one thing but the referance sheet in the back of the codex says another. according to the FAQ the correct entry is the one in the codex entry not the one in the referance sheet or anything else. the JO also has two different stats, one in the entry and one in the referance sheet. sadly the FAQ doesnt say anything about this.(and the hellhounds armour value is wrong the the ref sheet aswell. we should sue for screwing the codex up so much)

The Wargear book is the most up to date, so I'd say go with that.

That is also the problem. The codex...
The new Wargear - Weapons and wargear referance manual, agrees with the referance sheet.
The wargear book also has corrected the flaws in the codex refereance list conserning the hellhound and the junior officer. But the Priest has the same stats as in the codex ref. list.
It seems the priest really has the highest bs/ws of the two in question, but there still is a bit of an arguement at the local store.
I just had to get it confirmed from someone else.

- Yes whizz, i'll just do that-
Thanks for the help everybody.

yeah, as the reference sheet in the Guard Codex is right on the other issues, I'd go with it for the Priest as well; and as the Wargear book is the newest, you'd hope they would have double -checked it.

But the general rule of thumb is that a new publication overrides the older ones.

Speaking of mixups. What is the BS of a LT? I would think one would use the one in the IG list at the back of book, otherwise a Lt. Is nothing but a Sgt. What do you guys think?

All entries in the Codex (not the summary sheet) are correct.

That is what I think is strange. Because the Wargear book (new), says something else. Would it not be reasonable that the newest publications are correct? (GW could not possibly make such an obvious mistake twice, or could they?)

Does the Wargear book have the AV for the Front of the Hellhound? Is it the same as a Chimeras, or better?
