I have no idea what you are on about.... if you mean his 1+ unit selection, its pretty much as it reads - you MUST take 1 of this unit in his army.



Look here. This was discussed very recently, and may be of help.

You could be talking about the OLD version of Commander Farsight, from the 3rd Edition Tau Codex: He gave Tau +1 WS/I for a couple of points each.

He is no longer usable; instead now, the "new" version of Farsight confers the "Preferred Enemy: Orks" special ability to all his units.

So his rules used to be on par with his fluff? Why on Earth did they take that upgrade thing off him? :huh:

Because GW are shortsighted, not farsighted.

If you still have the old codex you can still use the rule with your friends.
