The rules can be found in Chapter Approved 2004 or at this link: http://uk.games-workshop.com/tau/tau%2Dauxiliaries/

As for if they are legal they kinda sorta might possibly be not anymore.... they were legal but since the new Tau codex didnt include them they really arent "legal" anymore. But I havent met an opponent yet who complains about me taking guardsmen over Firewarriors. It depends on who you play.

As Vash said, no official ruling on this yet, however it may be that only the Gue'Vesa in the Taros book from Forgeworld will be the "official" entry, which is no good, as that unit is not as good as the CA:2k4 entry. Mainly, no Markerlights or Pulse weapons.

Pah...GW suck on this one. Where I live its completely legal. Even in our small tourneys. No pulse weaponry on members (except Sgt/leaders/Gue'ui) and Lazguns only for the Gue'la. I'm not complaining I've even got a whole 40 guardmens converted as Gue'la/Gue'ui. It gives fluff to my army and well they are pretty rubbish compared to normal guardsmen/firewarroirs.

This is something we should write a pertition to GW for. Who's with me? Let us make them 100% legal again!
