No, think about it: It wouldn't be the first time GW actually changed the core game rules to favor SM...

Wouldn't be suprised, GW favors marines... with envy... and, *licking lip noises* kinda obsession.

Them: "What chapter do you play?"

Me: "I play Tau. They shoot really well."

Them: "Oh, so like Dark Angels... not that imaginative custom chapter."

well, I guess "and they shall know no incoming fire" makes sense for one of the templars special rules: when they take even a single casualty from shooting (and pass morale), they get a free D6" move towards the nearest visible enemy unit (Rightous Zeal, for those who dont beieve me)
