Default Chimeras

in the guard codex, the chimera has 6 lasguns and 1 firing point but in the inquisitorial codex it says they only have 2 firing points and no lasguns. is this right?

Hmmm...difficult to say. Codex: Daemonhunters makes reference to the Chimera's top hatch in the transports section, even though there are no mentions of it in the unit entry. It seems there are many errors in this codex. Personally I would obey the spirit of the rules and field Chimeras as they are fielded in an Imperial Guard army.

Indeed, unless the Inquistor models are different, they should have 6 hull lasguns (pointing 3 on each side) and one firepoint on the top hatch

The Imperial Guard Codex is corroborated by the Chimera entry in Imperial Armour Volume 1. The Daemonhunters Codex, however, is corroborated only by the absinthe its author was drinking by the pint as he wrote it :...

... yeah, there's a few errors in there.

I do read a good amount, more than most people in my class (not saying much) just never have come across that word. Like i said, got from context, but was a bit odd to me.

Nah, I already had a look in there. Not a sausage. I guess they just expect us to exercise our common sense or something. :huh:


P.S. - Don't worry about it, GeekyGator. I'm 24 and I consider myself quite articulate, but there's still the odd word that pops up every so often that I have never heard before. The English language is pretty extensive, and a lot of it is seldom used by the vast majority of people.
