But you could also unload every missile in a single barrage too. The past was a strange place.
Yep! Individually, they were krak missiles, and the Cyclone only carried a limited number for the battle. But you could fire multiple to upgrade to a small blast or all of them for a large blast, if I recall correctly.

In 2nd edition, the radius of the blast was half an inch per missile fired, if memory serves.

Yes. Which led to squads of Wolf Guard Terminators in which every Terminator carried a Cyclone and they let all their missiles fly in one go, covering the opponent's deployment in utter destruction. Of course, since it was 2e, you also had a mishap table that could lead to your Cyclone exploding at inopportune moments. It was a strange time.

I believe that the 2nd edition SW Codex was also so sloppily written that it only took a small bit of squinting to come to the conclusion that it was quite legal to give the Wolf Guard terminators both a Cyclone and an Assault Cannon. Each.

It was legal! Assault Cannon right arm, cyclone targeter left, all good :)

Wonderful days. Mine generally died when Ork Nobz on bikes drove into my deployment zone turn 1 and set them on fire, and to the extent that they were actually terminators they probably didn't have either arm actually attached to the body, and the Dreads backing them up were mostly Lego, but good times.

I need some help with Battlescribe.

I'm trying to make a Custodes/Sisters of Silence list, but can't figure out how to do it. I can do a Custodes list. I can do a Sisters list. I can't figure out how to make a combined list.

Can anybody give me some guidance?

You may need to add a seperate detachment to your "core" roster for the "allies" contingent, IIRC - will check!

(ETA - yep, that seems to be it - if that wasn't what you needed, I can try to figure out how to take screen caps from my tablet and thrash out a visual guide?)
