Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey I just wanted to ask about the Tau Armoury. Because its been a while since I used a Codex with an armoury section caz I've been playing IG for some time. I'm thinking of starting a Tau army you see and I want to clarify this from the armoury.
Fusion Blaster Xpts/Xpts
As you can see here there are two points costs for one option. I replaced the numbers with Xs. One cost is higher than the other. I just wanted to know which units use the higher points costs and which ones uses the lower points costs if they were to take this option from the armoury?
Off the top of my head, I think there are two situations this applies.
The First: On a battlesuit, you can take a weapon on a single hard-point (for the lower points cost), or you can purchase a pair of weapons (taking up two hard-points) for the more expensive points cost; this option means the weapons are twin-linked.
The Second: (I think I might just edit this point out seeing as it doesn't contribute anything)
Hope it helps!
Yeah. Maybe just outright ignore the second point for now, unless told otherwise by someone who knows what they're on about. At least I got the first bit right!
That is it, nothing to do with bieng a standard XV or a commander. Any unit with access to the armoury pays the same cost for weapons
Thank you, everyone. But it raises another question. If I get two of the same weapon, does it count as one weapon system (in which case I can still get two more weapons) or still two (in which case I only have one option for a system left)? I'm guessing it still counts as two weapons systems still but just need to clarify.

If you buy 2 of the same weapon they are automatically a twin-linked weapon system, you cannot have 2 identical individual weapons. A twin-linked weapon system is counted as one weapon for the purposes of firing (so you don't need a multi-tracker on a model with twin missile pods) but they take up 2 hard points.
As such buying a twin-linked weapon system leaves you with a single hard-point for a support system or another weapon, which must be different from the twin-linked weapon.
Exactly as I thought. Thanks everyone, you've been such a good help. =)
