    Tau Human Auxiliaries

    I believe Human Auxilleries are 6 points each, correct?
    I would much rather get a Fire Warrior than 2 Human Auxilleries!

    I agree that the Human Aux. are cheap but nothing more. The only reason why I'd include them would be for fluff purposes. Their cheapness adds nothing to your army. They have an equal to worse statline, worse weapons and smaller unit size than any Tau unit. Furthermore, depending on your opponent (Imperium) they become even more vulnerable.

    In summary, this level of point efficiency is poor.

    A redeeming factor would be if a Troop Unit were structured more like an IG Troop unit where multiple 10-man squads make up a single Troop choice. Since it doesn't, it seems a waste to use one of your Troop slots on them.

    Yes, they may have EMP&#39;s at the cost of +3 per model.

    The human auxiliaries are very good as diversions. Also they are reasonably good in CC, having a ws of 3 and 2 attacks. If you use them to sheild your fire warriors, they are very good. In my mind, they are better than kroot. Mainly because they have armour saves. I don&#39;t give them EMP grenades, to keep them low points. They are also good to use if u play farsight enclave (like me), so you have more troop options to replace kroot and gun drone squads.

    i dont think that they should have the platoon system but i do think that they should have heavy weapons - they are tau so they use tau&#39;s command structure but surely they must&#39;ve kept soma of their heavy weapons form their imperial day&#39;s

    by just giving them a heavy weapon, their effectiveness doubles. yea hear me, GAMESWORKSHOP&#33;? by allowing one heavy weapon to the aux, you will get so much more money cause everyone will buy them&#33;&#33;
