A quick question Heretics, mainly for the old and bold amongst you. Can anyone confirm what colour signified plasma weapons? Most people including myself have painted the blue/white glow on plasma weapons but IIRC, in RT, it may have been signified with purple, now I'm painting my marines purple so a purple glow on plams guns may be too much, but if anyone could confirm that for me it would be greatly appreciated, I think other heavy weapons may have had a colour code too, be nice to work it into the theme of the force, many thanks in advance Oldman xoxox

Thanks gents, I'll most likely stick with the blue/white glow, which is pretty much real world plasma anyway, of course my head is now tortured, I'm near certain in Rogue Trader they had a colour to signify plasma missiles/weapons red for melta, purple plasma etc, just a little nugget of fluff that is now torturing my mind!
