Thugh, it's unclear if they use full plasma balls or some sort of plasma-fueled projectiles. This issue demands research.
Imperial plasma weapons fire balls of hydrogen plasma at 100 million Kelvins according to http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Betrayer_%28Novel%29
So yeah, it should be a white-blue hot ball of plasma.
Novel is not enough to prove you're right. There are very few novels (from humble authors) which may be trusted as canon or sub-canon.
As I said, it will require research. I remember you stated that you've faced 90% of all this heresy. I guess, you're able to provide the community and devs with multiple confirmations on plasma macros effects.
3 should be enough.
