This is once again something that is assumed from SM/TL by we veterans and
that was probably missed from the actual rules. The Banelord is a stock
standard design with fixed weapons.

The weapons are the Havok Missile Rack that takes up both of the carapace
mounts (its sort of like the Barrage missile, but you always get 6
missiles), the Hell Cannon thing (that fired a barrage template that was
reasonably nasty), the Doom fist (which was a combination of a Chain Fist,
Power Fist and a Melta Cannon), the Head Cannon and the Tail Cannon. All
the weapons had a range of 50cm I think (the missiles MAY have had a range
of 75cm, but were one shots). These were the fixed weapons of the
Banelord. They could be armed with nothing else.

True. But the Banelord has the Daemon Engine of Khorne bonuses if Chaos is
curerntly winning in the game making it a monster on Close Combat and a
little faster. That was what you paid for (oh and a nice miniature too boot).
