I tried searching through a 40k rulebook, but couldn't find a ruling on this.
Im just getting into 40k, and would like to run tau.
Assembling my battlesuits, i recognize that I need to equip them with the exact equipment that they will have on their profile.
Here's my question, on twin linked items, do I need to actually suit him up with two of the appropriate weapon? Do i need two missile pod bits per suit? or just one and a notice to my opponent that its twin linked.
no one missle pod should be fine and letting your oppent know is just fine. you may encounter one or twp jerks that will want to see 2 but just ignore them as it is a meta game to throw you off from beating them. welcome to 40k
is it officially tourney legal?
also, thanks for the fast reply.
Twin-linked refers to two weapons linked together, so that's how you should model it. I'd say, for tourneys, you're going to have to get two of the weapons.
For Tau battlesuits, you should look up some guides on how to magnetise them, so you don't glue weapons on there that you might want to swap out later.
curses, i wont have enough missile pods to twin link up the entire team of 3.
As LN stated, you *should* have two if you have twin-linked for tournaments. Some will not mind, others will.. just depends on the general attitude of the local group. It's always safest to be official about your models, though.
That said, the best crisis suit squads are missile pod/plasma rifle, so who needs to twin link the missile pods anyway? :p
There are some fine articles on this site concerning XV8 configurations and their pluses and minuses. The old Fireknife is probably the best all-rounder, but Deathrain squads are the mid-range artillery of the Tau and should not be treated lightly. In a recent game I played against an Eldar army, my 3 DR+s (Twin-linked Missile Pod and Targeting Array) ran a five turn running battle with a single Falcon, eventually destroying it with extreme difficulty (we all know what a pain those Eldar tanks can be), but that was the Deathrain unit's job - anti-AV13 or AV12. It left the Fireknives and Commanders free to do damage elsewhere.
