Default Fire Warriors

Hivemind did this in the nids forum, and it made it more

active, so what the hey.

What do you like and, dislike about Fire Warriors?

Well, here's my two cents on the fire

warriors.
Pros
~~~~
-Excellent looking Model
-Best Basic Infantry

Weapon
-Points Cost is Good
-Team Maximum and Minimum Numbers are fair.
-

Armour is Decent
Cons
~~~~
-Difficult to paint, due to all the recess&#

039;s, detail, lines etc...
-Antenna is annoying to put on
-Lack of, actually,

no viable heavy weapons can be taken.
-Marines get missle launchers for 10 points

and it costs us +10(shasvre),(+10 markerlight), and +40 (missles) Rip Off!
-

Stats of the Fire Warrior are terrible. They should be at least BS 4 or the Pulse

Rifle should be AP 4.
-Close quarters combat ability is self-explanitory.
-

Rapid Fire distance should be 15inch since there so terrible at combat.
-Leadership

is meh, but Ethereal and Shas'vre balance it out so.
-Pulse Carbine should be

an option that the entire squad may have, so the unit can use them to its full effect.

i find antennas easy to paint, cuz i use the

same color as the rest of the helmet.. but whole squad with carbines would be good, or at

least heavy weapons...

Well with regards to the Game. Id tell you what I

think of it. But the[size=13pt] -ing Thing Doesn't Work >[/size]



The troops I like very much. They are as far as I am concerned; the

best infantry in the game. All the pros that Alucard said:

The only

thing I don't like about them is the lack of options. The only real upgrades

you can give them that are worth it are bonding, and EMP grenades (even the latter is bad

in most Case's). I wouldn't mind some heavy weapons. But hey at

least selecting the upgrades is easy.

Heavy weapons in FW squads would unbalance the

game, making the Tau far far far far too shooty (even more so they are now) as for the

models, I don't like them that much, I hate the antenna idea (I don't have

FW's, but Guardians have antenna too).

For me, Fire Warriors are what made Tau what

they are, as well as Crisis Suits. The only reason I ever started Tau was because of the

Fire Warriors model. Painting them is easy for me, but I tend to like the Painting and

Converting side of Warhammer 40k, so it doesnt exactly say much :P. I can't wait to

get Campaign: Andanafril going!

The rules are good, but i find painting them a

bit dull, to be honest. maybe its my scheme, maybe its just the clure of chaos, and the

vibrant colours of eldar, but i just find myself not doing much of the FW's..
