Default Do you use Carbines?

Simple topic: do you think Carbines are

much good?

Personally, i think one or two for the pin test could be handy, but

i prefer long range with Tau

it all depends on the feild and terrain.

if it was a City Fight or other similar table set ups with dense terrain, i would use as

many carbines as possible. other than that i find them utterly useless.

I have one 12 man unit equipped with 6 Carbines, and the second

will aso be equipped with 6 Carbines as soon as I buy another Devilfish. Since I usually

play a more Mech Tau style I think that the pulse carbines really help out, especially

when I unload them from the Devilfish, this way I can stay just out of assualt range (

from most units) and still lay down a fair amount of fire power.

I only take them when I am using devilfish (

mostly for mathematical reasons) And I don't have any devilfish so go figure.

I personally have

never been pinned by carbines (I'm a non-Tau player), but I don't use Eldritch

storm (which i think has the same range, and can pin too) simply because it's only

S3 and costs 35 pts!
