Default Can you start other units inside the Pathfinders Fish?

I know you can move other troops into the PF's fish if it's parked within 2" of a unit at the start of the game but can you start other units from inside the PF's fish?

Actually in the rule book, it specifically states that a transport can only transport the unit it was purchased for. So the PF DF can only transport PF.

Nope, you can't. The Devilfish is a Dedicated Transport; you can only transport the unit that you purchase it with.

No the Devilfish is for the pathfinders or fire warriors it's attached to.

Well ya bu tcant you split the points so if you have a squad of 4 PF, couldn't you put 8 FW in the DF for 80 points? Seems like a good idea to me. But that Dedicated Transport sounds like you cant, so I don't know.

You can put an independent character in there with them if you like, such as an Ethereal, but that's it. You can also only do that if the Ethereal deploys on the table, but if you're using standard Escalation rules the Ethereal is infantry (and thus starts on the table) and the 'finders are Scouts (and thus start on the table) so it's not an issue.

All Devilfish are dedicated transports. A dedicated transport can only be used by the squad that it is purchased for. The Tau do not have any non-dedicated transport vehicles like the Land Raider or Falcon for example. Thus no unit but the one that bought it can get into any devilfish. Independant characters can join the squad and then get in but they have to have joined and thus be part of the squad. Thats it. Hope that clears that up.

Now that the question is answered Locked
