Default New codex stuff

OK here's the 411

there is an option in the new codex that allows broadsides to swap their SMS for TL plasma rifles what do you recon?

Also i think that the new stealth's may have access to the entire weapon options that crisis have so you won't be limited to the fusion blaster

rail rifle drones come in squads of 3 drones and a spotter you may take 3 lots of these team as a heavy support choice but you may only do this for one slot

feel free to correct me however the information here is from the new codex

ooh!

point1) broadsides were already allowed to swap their SMS's for plasmas

point2) i dought this, they're only stealths. otherwise the photos of them would have probably shown them with the other weapons.

point3) no idea :P

Broadsides already can swap SMS for TL Plasma, but it is a bit expensive.

OK thanks for pointing that out

all I'm saying is on the page of the codex where it shows all the different weapons and stuff it says that stealth teams may have one support system and one weapon.
Now I am assuming that this applies to only the Shas'vre but I think a plasma rifles armed Stealth would be quite tasty.

Is this really necessary?

We already have two threads covering all this
- Tau Rumor FAQ - sticky in this board
- Tau Rumour summary - sticky in rumours board.

1) Broadsides already can.
2) It's fusion or burst cannon only (it's mentioned elsewhere in the codex I think). That is all. (+1 optional support system of course)
3) Correct.

But anyway, as I said, this is all covered in the two above mentioned threads.

in the new codex, do the new stealth suits do anything different?

i say this only because when looking at the names, the origional is XV15, and the new ones are XV25.

with some of the older tyranids models they changed the look (the lictors for example) but didnt change the name.

also i hate the new stealth suits, they dont suit what they do at all. the older models looked like fast, stealthy (my paint job anyways, black with red lights on them) and thats just what they did? the new ones look more like a newer model of crisis suits (which i would have loved cause crisis suits look ugly in my oppinion)
they look big and bulky, now very stealth like to me.

As far as I know, the only difference between the XV15 and XV25 is their equipment options.

This topic is covered in the threads Mace was kind enough to post.
