What are the rules and point costs for Tau Marklighter Drones? Forge World makes them, and I'd love to include them, but there are no rules in the codex for them. Have any been published or used? I would love to have "Official Rules" not just educated guess's. Anybody come across them?
I believe they are a Heavy support unit. You purchase a unit of heavy gun drones and you can upgrade a number of them to be equipped with marker lights.
I think the rules can be found in the imperial armor book #2. Unless they are a chapter approved unit they are not consider "legal" in any GW tourneys.
EDIT: oh the rules of the frum prevent anyone from posting rules, I sugest you give them a read. :thumbs_up:
The rules are in Imperial Armor Update.
Unforunately, the book is out of print so, you can't order it from Forgeworld.
Forgeworld is coming oput with a new book: Imperial Armor Update 2004, maybe the rules wil be in it.

the rules are in IA update 2004, they will also be put in IA volume 3: the Taros campaign which will center mostly on the Tau
with a few minor IG and SM
their will also be rules for the new Tetra and Piranha
Isitused, about the forum rules, understood and thanks, it never hurts to give a new forum rules a once over and this was my first post. I was looking for the "Official" product that would allow me to play them in a tournement. I could not have used any rules posted here for that.
Thanks, Shammah and Dreachon, also for the information. It was what I was looking for. Now I need to find those books and come up with some tactics for use with my army.
I always thought deep striking a unit of heavy gun drones in teh back field to mark and shoot any low armor artillary was a nice idea.
Burst cannon that week 10 rear armor, and mark them for seeker attack, I dont think much artillary can deal with that.
LoL, I'll try that thanks!
That sounds like a good trick, thanks isitused!
