Default Honour guard

just looking at the new tau reference sheet on the GW site. there is nothing there for the honour guard. i know they aref ifre warriors, but are there any major differences, ie in points or stats or even special rules? i think i've seen a thread like this but i havnt seen one after searching through 9 pages of threads. i didnt want to dig.

I believe that they cost as much as a drone, and have +1 BS, Fearless (due to the Aun)
Other than that they are just normal Firewarriors.

Hope it helped!

They are in the codex. They aren't really a unit in their own right, but rather they are an upgrade for an Ethereal. This means they are inherently 0-1, and cannot be taken on their own.

Uh.......lonely tau? The codex stated that the honuor guard Fws can have the same unit size, weapons and options. That means that they can be mopunted inside a devilfish.

Oh.........well you can't. You can only take one aun per army. The force organization list still works.
