Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am kinda new to tau and I was wondering if it would be good to have a squad of all carbines in front of a squad with pulse rifles or would it be better to mix them up. Thanks.
I have seen the Death Company: wild-eyed berserkers, who tear their enemys limb from limb, crush skulls with a single blow, snap spines and rip out organs. The Blood Angels are indeed ancient and terrible and only the foolish do not fear them.
You can't have all Carbines. And I personaly wouldn't take any in 4th edition.
There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad
(special thanks to Uriel Zarium for the last line/touching it up)
supposedly, you can have whole squads of carbines in the new codex. we'll have to wait & see. in theory, it would be a good idea, but yeah it's illegal (for now).

The all carbine fast deployment FW squad in a DF will be deadly when the new codex comes out, with a squad of Pathfinders stacking up th ML hits to up the BS to BS4 or 5 and the rest lowering the LDS of the targeted unit, the scope for causing casualties and pinning the survivors will be awesome.Originally Posted by squall14
It should be possible to wipe out a unit of Marine Devs for instance in two turns or to at least preventing them from firing, I cant wait to see the tactical possibilities this is gonna throw up.
This tactic will also make Drone squads a valuable choice as well Twin linked BS5 shots will chew up units and pin them nicely.
So you say, Onlainari, but I think Riki's got a point. A full unit of carbine-toting FW in a 'Fish is good as it stands, and they can be awesome if the new markerlight rules prove true. I don't think any single unit will ever become the IWIN for the Tau, but that doesn't mean there aren't some mean new combinations looming on our particular horizon.

I'm in concurance here. This may end up as one of those common combo-units, not unlike a Chaplian and Assault Squad or Necron Lord w/ Veil and Immortals :yes: I may actually take PathfindersOriginally Posted by Straylight
