No, the positioning of the Firewarriors to the Devilfish is not what's important, they don't stand under it. Picture this:mephistophales said:I'm a little unsure on how fish of fury works. My understanding is that as a skimmer the warriors can stand under the devilfish, and can't be charged correctly as the devilfish is in 1". But I might just be misunderstanding and they can still be charged correctly.
Your opponent can only charge if they are within 6".
Your opponent can't move within 1" of one of your models (i.e. the Devilfish).
If you position the Devilfish in front of your squad at the correct distance, the detour your opponent must take means the distance he must move to go all the way around the Devilfish is such that you are out of charge range. There are more exact measurements and nuances to it, but that's the underlying principle.

No.mephistophales said:Also, does being under the fish give them a cover bonus?
See Tau Codex page 17. A Crisis Suit hardpoint is for Weapons or Support Systems. Putting 3 weapons on a load of your Crisis is usually a bad idea, as even with a multi-tracker you can only fire 2, and you don't have the hardpoint to take the multi-tracker anyway (remember not all units can take Hard-wired systems).mephistophales said:Also, when counting hard/fire points on a crisis suit you only count the weapons right? For example, a suit could have dual plasma, single fusion, multi tracker, and shield generator. The dual plasma and single fusion would fill the hard points, and the multi tracker and shield generator would be the hard wired systems (assuming it's command and has three hard wire points.)
