Nades? You mean grenades right? Is English not your first language?

They're useful, but I prefer not to let the enemy get so close that I need them.

I usually find grenades to expensive to be of any major use and with the tau if your using grenades then you must already be in a pretty bad situation. So no i wouldnt take them.

Human aux. are a unit available to the tau army you can get the rules from the Chapter approved section of the GW website. They are pretty much just guardsmen with the some pulse weapon options and tau grenades. They fill a nice role between your kroot and fire warriors and are pretty easy to make.

i always give fws photon grenades (well i did in 3rd not always in 4th to be honest) losing attacks for units charging you is a good thing!!!! I've never used emps except on pathfinders
