So, let's see if I can get this straight...

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I found out last night that either Pistol/Basic Las weapons and Pistol Plasma/Melta/Flame(?) weapons work with that Power Supply Tampering rule.  Curses!  Well, no matter, there are other worthy options to choose from if I can get the Ancient Warrior talent.  Legion Heavy Bolter, for instance.  Or a Legion Plasma Gun with an upgrade (Extended Magazine seems nice).  Or a Plasma Canon.  Or a Heavy Flamer.  Decisions, decisions...

I think if your Plasma Weapon is linked into your armor, you should take damage whenever it overheats.  There's no dropping it if the power surge is coming from your back.  It should also interfere with the normal functioning of your Power Armor, imparting -60 to all your reactions until your next round when a hooked-up weapon overheats.

A player who has to roll Plasma Cannon damage against himself might want to use a standard clip afterwards.

 

Giving starting Chaos Marines Terminator Armor doesn't seem so bad to me.  Chaos Marines can be hundreds of years older than starting Space Marines, and should be a good step up in power from them at the start.  

However, Terminator Armor isn't subtle.  When I set traps for them full of melta-bombs, krak missile teams, and multi-mela ambushes, they'll be envying their more mobile comrades.  Of course, eventually they can get teleporters to make up some of the inherit drawbacks of the armor, but by then everybody else will be getting new toys as well.

This is one of those balance issues I'd have more fun designing around than house-ruling out of existence.

I am a little confused with this rule. How do you buy equipment that doesn't cost more then your infamy(I think thats it) but no more then -10 aquisition?
