Welcome to Librarium Online!
does every pathfinder have a markerlight, or is there only 1 per unit?
Every Pathfinder in the squad...
Unless of course you use rail rifles, models with rail rifles dont have markerlights aswell.
rail rifles? how can u get those in a pathfinder squad? what are they?
Rail rifles are a hand-held version of the Railgun. They are a chapter approved thing so you wont find them in the codex, but they are completely legal to play. Of course they arent as strong as the Railgun though. They are more like the Tau version of snipers.
Rail Rifles are cool. I saw the rules for them. Pretty much, if they're used properly, they are the Tau answer to snipers. They work. And work well.

Railrifles are great when you get to shoot them. I find that pathfinders are stuck inside their devilfish a fair bit, and when you do find a nice spot for them, it's only a nice spot for a short while before it quickly becomes dangerous and they have to get back into the devilfish and run away. A lot of points for a unit that will take out 4 space marines a game. (Of course the unit gets markerlights too, which are also great if you could sit and markerlight the whole game-you can't).
how much points are they? I read in the post by that_guy that they are "Str6 AP3 Range 36"
and do they replace the pulse carbines at no cost?
Go to the GW site and look around under Tau. Its all in there.
HALO 2 - Sure those first few games where you wipe out the opposition with the rocket launcher, overshield and camoflage are fun but after a while you start looking for something more. Next it has to be death by plasma sword or sticky bomb, till pretty soon only clobbering your opponent with the butt of your rifle will do. The more difficult something is to do, the more fun it is when you pull it off. For IG players the word for this is Mobility
