    Hy everyone.
    I will soon have a game with my Space Wolves against my Tau buddy, and there is one thing that bugs my, and that are this grenates tha tau have that let you loose your charge attack bonus. As bloodclaws get +2 attacks when chargeing this would surely hamper there skills, or do they just loose one of their 2 bonus attacks? (don´t realy believe this, but still better check it)

    Still they are much cheaper then gray hunters, so I will devenitely field a large squad, and this way they will at least use their bold pistols to shot once in their liveat living enemies out of CC

    I think they are called photon grenades and because the tau donßt like to charge but stand and shoot they don´t negate cover as you would expect, but negate you your charge bonus or something ... I don´t have the tau codex because I don´t play them, thats why I`m asking.

    Photon grenades negate bonus attacks for charging, so yes, your blood claws would lose their +2 bonus on the charge.

    Eww, that's nasty :o

    Well, it doesn't matter much, Tau still suck in combat, 2 attacks will be enough

    Too true. Although I did have the ultimate tau triump against my friend who's a space wolves player. He assaulted my firewarrior squad with a half strength or so grey hunter squad. I killed three grey hunters, while all my firewarriors survived!

    Page 19 of the Tau codex, under the entry 'Photon Grenades', states clearly that an enemy assaulting a model armed with photon grenades will not receive ANY bonus attacks for charging. Both of your bonus attacks will be lost, not just one. As previously stated, you'll probably have no trouble carving down the Tau in CC despite this setback.

    PS. It's spelt 'mosquito'

    Durandal's right, but you wont need those extra attacks. At a tourney I played in, a SW player got into HtH with my Tau with his scouts (forgot the specific name, the ones that come on from opponents side of the board) and took out a whole 12 man firewarrior squad and 3 pathfinders.

    Basically hope your armor saves work out well on the shooting phases, then assault them.

    If he keeps his firewarriors still at the back of the board, just avoid them, go for his more deadly units (crisis, hammerhead, stealth)

    Happy Hunting
