Default Concerning WYSIWYG

Quick question, if I glue either a pulse carbine or a pulse rifle onto a fire warrior's backpack, then I can state that he is using a pulse carbine/rifle, even though it is not the weapon currently in his hands? (I wouldn't cheat and switch every turn or something)

Technically, you should not be representing equipment on the model that they are not actually equipped with. So you could not claim that a model with a Carbine is actually using the Pulse Rifle on his back.

In practice, this would probably be okay. I prefer having a sideboard of carbine-equipped Fire Warriors for when I need them, but then I have a lot of spares.

Yes, if there's a carbine on the model, so he has a carbine (even if the model isn't actually holding it, he still has one). Likewise for pulse rifle.

As Khanaris said though, you can't claim one to be the other and vice versa.
