ok brand new to 40k, did a little research and really like the technology of the tau.
opened up the box and man there are alot of parts.
i've heard differnt rules that in order for a unit to have something, the unit must physically have that item attached.
so when glueing these pieces together how do i know what weapon is what?
are there any good guides that say "this is a markerligh" or "this is an emp"?
For things like Markerlights and Grenades, you don't always have to put them on. The little sights on the weapons already could pass for Markerlights. Grenades are included in the box as well.

Mech Tau Cadre: 2000 points, needs paint and magnets.
Paladins of Avalon (SW):-1500 points, needs paint.
so for the devilfish, if i want to equipecoy Launcher, Multitracker and the Target Array.
which plastic pieces do i use?
You don't need to actually equip vehicle armoury upgrades on your devilfish. Excellent choice of upgrades btw.
For the devilfish, don't glue in the burst cannon, it helps if you can remove it if it's destroyed in a game. Don't glue in the engines, it helps to remove them when the devilfish is destroy. And don't glue in the gun drones, they often detatch.
As far as Fire Warriors, the longer gun is the pulse rifle, and the stumpy one is the Carbine. Dont worry about every little upgrade. I've never met anyone who was a real hard-@$$ about representing these nit-pick things. In fact, at my store, I've never seen anyone who had everything painted, let alone modeled "right." I may be the first to do so.
Also, if it doesn't come with it, dont worry about it. Flechette dischargers, decoy launches and such dont have models, so dont worry about representing them.

Briguy, where do you game at and did you know that all Chicagoland stores (even the bunker) don't require painted figures to play games. Also that very few people will not let you use something if it is not on the model. If they fight it and it is not some outragious add on very few people will care.
