I really love the base rifle of the Tau with 30" range this thing is great. It is a great gun. Nuff said.

I really wish that the Ion Cannon was avilable on more then just the HH :'(. Ion wielding Broadsides would be so sweet .

personally i think its a tie between the missile pod and the rail gun, one being cheap andf plentifull, the other being large and very scary ( i actually scared my imperial guard opponent yesterday with my army, which is always a good sign, when an imp player starts hiding units to avoid your firepower

I have more Pulse Rifles than anything else in the army so I'd say them...

But for weapon I truly love, it's gotta be the Railgun. It just reminds me of an old Quake 2 song I heard by an online comedian called Entity...

"Oh my little railgun, stand up tall and proud...rail through the masses and rail through the crowd..."

The song was about someone not being able to use them properly...but fortunately, I had that rare skill. I like to fire one shot, not 50

Well it has to be the railgun with me. But the good old pulse rifle deserves a mention.

The plasma rifle.
Stick that on a battle suit, (as you have to!) and you have a lovely rapidfiring gun that can't be shot, and can easily kill those annoying terminators.
Plus, it doesn't blow it's self up like those poorly crafted imperial versions.
