    Do the Tau have pistols? In the codex, it doesn't even tell you if a weapon is two-handed or one. They have Air caste models at the Forge World website that have pistols. How come regular fire warriors can't have these?

    why would the tau need pistols?

    we already have the pulse carbine and there are no one handed weapons (when was the last time you saw a fire warrior with a chainsword?)



    presumably the air caste pilots would get one but unless the rules have changed significantly since last week the crew of a vehicle goes down with it

    < well.. pistols would allow for better close combat. the pulse rifle is too long for stuff like that&#33;

    An interesting thought. You&#39;d think a cizilization would give its warriors who suck at combat, pistols to fight with.

    Course it dosen&#39;t follow fluff so that may be way they never got into the codex.
    Anything can burn if you try hard enough.

    Yeah, pistols are used by (usually) high-ranking officials who wish to wield a close combat weapon while keeping the ability to shoot from 12" or so. The Tau hate close combat, so why would anyone need to, why would anyone want to swap some long range pulse carbines for a pulse pistol thingy and some Tau dagger? Anyway, it&#39;s unlikely that the Tau will be dragged into the close combat anyway. All they have to do is switch places with the Kroot. Then they just fire away. They don&#39;t care.

    Tau don&#39;t have a need for pistols, because they don&#39;t engage their enemies up close and personal. By the time a pistol gets within range, it&#39;s time for the Tau to either run like hell or die.

    I think the real question is why Space Marines dont have side-arm pistols.
    Hell, you&#39;re already paying for power armour, how much more would a little pistol cost?

    :w Sweet Clyde laugh derivingly at him :unsure: .
    "ahh hahah aahahah ahahahah "

    The last time i got within 12" of a tau he wet his pants. He&#39;ll be trying to figure out why his gun cant hit the guy on the opposite side of the field. Unless of course they got training by Black Templars & became COMBAT TAU&#33;&#33;&#33;, superhuman warriors tooled up to kill the enemies of mankind in little black & white suits. Someone please slap me :ph34r:


    im so lonely.............
