Default The Real Str of Tau: Pulse Rifle

I have been playing Tau for a long time it seems, 4 years or more to be exact. And even with the new Codex, I still believe the strongest weapon in the Tau army is the Pulse Rifle on the basic Fire warrior.

The suites are nice as are all the new toys. But In my experiance point for point, the fire warrior with a pulse rifle beats them all. I never go to the board with out at least 48 of these guys. And given the fact since we can now move and rapid fire, it gives my 6 x12 man FW sqaudsall mounted in DF all the more powerfull.

So to all new Tau players I strongly recomend a lot of Fire warriors in your armies.

Because someone has messed with the Forum so that saying any of the alien races' names come out as 'Xeno scum' while it changes the Imperial's to... well, a rather long-winded and egotistical version... I think their compensating for something.

Ah now I see the problem. thanks sepiroth.

The forum is down before and now this stuff. Well, somehow this stuff will go away then.

But actually, sometimes it is better to take fewer fire warriors. This is because they are rather fragile.

I once took 72 in 1,000 points. That was murder. And I dont think they any any more fragile than any other non power armour wearing unit. Besides their armoured shell (devilfish) is better than power armour. :-)

Pulse Rifles are the strongest Tau- weapon? Last I checked they were str 5. Don't you mean the Railgun is the strongest gun?

And when are they going to remove the alien = xenos scum filter?? It's getting old and annoying...

I didnt mean at the Highest Strength xenos awesomeness gun, just the best all around gun in the army. For its range, ROF, str and cheap point cost.

Well now we can get a grand total of 84 Firewarriors thanks to the Etherial's honor guard. I would love to see that many Firewarriors take to the field. Point for point pulse rifles rock and they really do get the job done especially in lower point battles where we cannot afford to specialize.
