    error in the rulebook?

    I was flipping through the Tau section of my rulebook and noticed what seems to be a mistake. On page 172 the crisis suit on the right is labeled as a fireknife, but seems to be armed with a plasma, fusion blaster and shield generator, which is actually a helios variant is it not?

    Why did the chicken cross the road?
    For the greater good.

    Who originally came up with the different variant names for the Crisis Suits? GW or someone else?

    Could be a typo, could be that GW is trying to establish something different from the norm... who knows? There was a topic about this previously, a little while back. Really, though, does it much matter? Call the Crisis Suit configurations whatever you want them to be. The "Fireknife" designation isn't something GW coined, so it's not technically official (as far as I'm aware), so it's not technically an error.

    On the other hand, the sample 1500 pt army at the end of the codex has at least one illegal battlesuit configuration. Check out the broadside unit...
    ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

    I think thats just bad wording by GW. The battle suit support system is under this big key word of Options, meaning its optional you don't have to take it, yet at the same time it says you must take it so... its a toss up on the rules.
