I'm starting a Tau army and there is only one question, do the fire warriors come with Pulse Carbines on the sprue?

I don't really want to use fire warriors, but I would like to use Pathfinders and the only real difference between them is the gun.

>> No.12048728

Lest time I checked. Yes.

>> No.12048741


Also Tau general if people want..

>> No.12048742

If you're making Pathfinders, remember to leave off the giant shoulder pad.

>> No.12048760

That was the plan. Mainly because Pathfinders are extremely expensive and my army is already expensive as it is with 9 Broadsides and 6 XV8 Crisis Battlesuits

>> No.12048768

dood one firewarrior killed a legion black legion and a deamon prince AND a Lord of change.

>> No.12048775

Aren't Pathfinders a fast attack choice?

>> No.12048777


You still have to take 1 unit of FW though OP...

>> No.12048784

Yes, but only six (ie half the squad) with three loose ones (for a total of 9). And so I'm clear, you ARE aware you NEED at least one squad of fire warriors, right (they are 1+ and thus mandatory by rules)?

>> No.12048794

You're going to have to have at least one Fire Warrior squad anyway. Give them rifles.

>> No.12048808

Where does it say this? I'm taking two units of Kroot to fill my core and everything else is pretty much suits.

>> No.12048809


1+ FW mind mind

>> No.12048829


Fire Warriors, like your Commander... are 1+...which translates into = You MUST take one, and then however more you want

>> No.12048846

Oh well. Then I'll only have to take my one. But then I'll just take the rest in stuff that I want.

>> No.12048850

>> No.12048916

Actually Fire Warriors are great. Load up on them. Get as many as you can afford. Set them up in kitted out Devilfish for holding objectives, or for unloading and dumping 24 S5 AP5 shots into something. Too many people take a bunch of specialist units but a solid base of Fire Warriors can make almost anything lay down, especially with markerlights to help their BS.

>> No.12048952

The problem with Fire warriors is that they're too expensive for what they do, and the fact that, to warrant their cost at all, you HAVE to use markerlights to be effective

A simple point cost reduction would solve all of their problems

>> No.12048976

What if Pulse Rifles had a special rule that granted them 15'' Rapid Fire instead of the normal 12''?

>> No.12048987

Anyone have a picture of the Tauasaki model? I've been wanting to model a few from some spare stealth suits and would like the reference.

>> No.12049268

So, XV15 or XV25 for stealth teams? Does it even matter?

>> No.12050721

No gameplay difference, it's all aesthetics.

>> No.12051098

No one?
