They are only available in Chapter Approved, unless you're lucky enough to find the WD with them in. Sorry.

Well, it would be sort of, you know, illegal, for us to just tell you the rules for Rail Rifles. They're in the 2004 Chapter Approved, so they were in some White Dwarf, but I don't know what to tell you if your gaming group ignores CA. There's certainly no logical reason to ignore it. The rules they present are official, and everything. Why do they refuse to use CA rules?

Check the Tau FAQ. I got the link to the rules included....good news is they're official (games workshop), bad news is they're German. Use babblefish.com to translate and you can figure it out.

It's a classic example of GW's ploy of releasing official supplemental rules that force you to buy additional products you don't necessarily want/need in order to use them. The ork's KoS warboss on a bike was another example of a unit that was accidently left out of the original Armageddon Codex and was then "fixed" by forcing people to buy the annual or a WD issue. Thankfully that one finally appears in the v4.1 FAQ. >

Here is the link to the updated 40k4.0 FAQ straight from GW.

Also, the Rail Rifle rules are located in Warhammer 40,000 Annual 2004.

Err... the Tau FAQ doesn't list the rules for rail rifles... although thanks to the link, I found that if you markerlight something, it doesn't get cover saves. DIE MANDRAKES, DIE!

No, the FAQ doesn't have rules, it jsut says how to modify the codex to the new v4 rules.

If you PM me your e-mail address I'll see if I can get you the Rail Rifle rules before the day is out. 8)

as Aunla said, there are a few people on this board who are more than willing to help people with rules they might not otherwise be able to access :.
