Can I buy a Rhino for a unit, but then infiltrate my chosen and have the Rhino Deploy in reserve or with the rest of the army?
Member of the Fluffmasters Clan
One assumes that by indicating the Rhino would deploy into reserve, we are talking about an Escalation mission? The answer is definitely no. The unit has a dedicated transport and therefore is bound by escalation to start in reserve. Nothing in the Infiltrate rule overrides that. Only units that have the 'Scout' special rule (Tau Pathfinders) are exempt.
If the unit has a transport, it is immediately precluded from infiltrating. Same goes for units like Tau stealth suits - they cannot set up/infiltrate in escalation since they are jump infantry.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
"[...] only units of infantry on foot (no troop transports, bikes, jetbikes, support weapons, monstrous creatures, etc.) may be deployed [...]"
My interpretation was based on the French version (didn't look up the English one). I think the English rule makes more sense.
Another thing to remember too is that in situations like this where there are discrepancies between translations, it was decreed in an earlier FAQ that the English translation always takes precedence.
If I can find the place where that was stated, I will post it up.
"Tau Commandment #226: Participants who use Velocity Trackers in the Tau Clay Pigeon Tournament will be disqualified"
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
It is actually stated clearer in the deployment section which indicates that both a transport and it's unit must be deployed simulatiously
