Default Question about EMPs and Ethereal BS

I ahve two questions to throw at you guys and here goes. 1) Do the EMP granades only work on immoblized tanks? * *2) Why do the Etherals have a BS when they can'y take any ranged weapons? Unless they throw a spoon at you.

1) Read the Codex entry.
2) Read the Codex entry.

Now, so that I don't come off as a total arse:
1) EMPs only work on vehicles with Weapon Skill if they are immobalized... 4th Edition might have changed this, not sure.
2) Ethereals can take Markerlights... it's actually an interesting idea I never considered, using him as an untargetable 'sniper'.

No Ethereals cannot take Markerlights, as they are not wargear. He has a BS purely for consistency to show that he is still a Tau. Same reason why other cc only troops get balistic skill. It's useless.

Hmm... I could've sworn it was in the unit entry, I know it's not in the Wargear section...
Oh well, that explanation is good too... I always wondered about Broodlords.

Yeah they did. You are able to hit a mobile walker on a 6 with grenades in 4th edition.
