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.
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.squall14 said: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).
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 Pathfinders:|Straylight said: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.
