Default Silly little Questions

Just a couple of questions I don't know the answers to.

*When making a tank, do you glue the guns in, or let them be able to move freely?(Just I saw a friends tank like this and argued they had to be glued.)

*Do you need the Shas'O or Shas'El in Combat Patrol?

If it's on the model, it's legal. It just has to be painted.

Learn to shorten your reach! If your foe can come close enough to negate your striking power, all stratagem is lost, and when all stratagem is lost, the battle is lost.

Tell me now, is there a man among you here, is there no one who will stand up and try to fight? Tell me man, is there not one in all your ranks, is there no one who values courage over life?

You dont have to glue the guns on in my opinion. As long as its on the model. Why should it have to be glued in place? I mean if it keeps falling off thats one thing but otherwise I dont see why its a problem.

The combat patrol rules superceded some of the other rules. Only one troops is required and no HQ which means no commander is needed. If an HQ was still required than you would need to fulfill the 1+ commander requirement. However the 1+ Firewarrior requirement still needs to be filled. Thats how I understand it anyway.

Also note the case of the Shaper (Oblicatory in a Kroot Merc. list), but has three wounds. You don't need to take it, even though the codex says you do!

I modded my hammerhead's turret so the railgun sits in the socket a little lower so it won't fall off as much, just shave off the little nubs on the thing that your supposed to glue it to. If you do that you can swap it out with an ion cannon whenever you want to as well.

They don't have to be glued, but Tau main weapons (especially the railgun and ion cannon on hammerheads) will just be loose and fall off. Another way is to magnetize the weapons, so that you can switch between weapons depending on who you're fighting (saves alot of money if you only want one hammerhead per battle).

Even though the Tau commander is a +1 model, the rules state that in combat patrols you do not need an HQ.
