    i've been looking through my codex and ive found that tau bround forces are seriously lacking in infantry firepower. yes, yes, i know how useful pulse rifles can be but wouldn't it be great if the tau got some sort of infantry based flamed thrower or something?

    your corage was great. but you have no reeal purpose for fighting as we have the greater good. - Shas' O' Mien to surrendering gue'la commander

    I don't don't know why the hell you would want a flame thrower seeing how FW are designed to be the most far range standard infantry. I'm sure GW thought about putting better weapons in the FW squad when they made Tau, obviosly leaving them out to balance things out. Maybe they'll come out with something maybe they won't sure as h#ll won't be a flame thrower...

    At least in theory the alternative to the flamer in a FW squad is the carbine - it doesn't wipe out swathes of troops, but if it pins them it leaves them sitting within rapid fire range to get blown to hell by massed rifle fire.

    To soften up a unit that's approaching to beat their heads in maybe?

    But bleh, flamers suck.

    i belive he was just comparing them to other armies the fact that other armies can have flamers, not suggesting that tau should have them.I think it would be cool if one model in your tau squad could have a missle pod or a plasma rifle. somthing with a little more umf if you know what i mean.
    If you charge a bunker and die, its called being reckless, but if you charge the bunker and win, it's heroic!
