Default Railgun Problems

Hey guys it's me again. I am having another problem, my friends think that at the beginning of the game you must choose wether to use the solid shot or the submunition. They said you cant use both in the same game. Is this true or not?

Yes you can. You choose which one you want to use each time you shoot. It's all in the codex.

Vehicle mounted-railguns have the option to shoot a submunition shot rather than the normal solid shot.

As .mace said, you can use both in a game, simply chose which one to use at the start of each shooting phase.

As for your friends, tell them where it says you chose at the start of the game, like with the Whirlwind munitions. When they cannot find where it says that, then there is your answer.

Ah then a tip for such things in future, if an opponent, or even an ally is bringing up any rule that your not sure about ask them to show you where that rule is stated. Sometimes they may be cheating, other times they may honestly don't know, I've met plenty of players who didn't know how their own rules worked, like how gauss flayers damaged vehicles, BT morale rules and WBB etc. Make them show you the rule, especially if it's limiting or changing your own armies function.

I wanted to make a Tau Titan...Im just want to buy a large scale Gundam model, preferable Heavy Arms since it already has those Epic burstcannons and large Misslepods/Smart missle systems. lol Like the idea?

Tau don't use Titans, they rely on super heavy air craft, as titans, barring those of Eldar Technology, are far to slow and unwieldy.
