um not he cant twinlinked odes not mean you get 6 shots it means your re-roll to hit. So unless you had two with twin linked burst cannons you could not hit. So you cheated. Read your codex more carefully next time.
edit burning ice seriously even I have played with the wrong rules for some time.

Please try to use the spell-check, guys. It is there for your protection.

A commander with bodyguards can put out quite a few Burst Cannon shots. But as Doctor Wu noted, Twin-linked just means you reroll misses to hit. On a BS5 commander, this is somewhat redundant.

Whatta ya mean guys? Khanaris noted the presence of bodyguards hence the "A commander with bodyguards" part.

But Khanaris is right on a BS5 commander twin-linking is a bit overkill. Plus I'm not a fan of Burst Cannons on suits anyway, you get lucky sometimes but with so much str5 ap5 fire in the Tau arsenal already, I prefere to put some more nasty firepower on my commander. My Helios Shas'O has the following Honored Kills list, though thats just types I felt worthy of inclusion, not the numbers of each:

-Space Wolf Venerable Dreadnaught

-Daemonhunter Grand Master

-Daemonhunter Terminators

-Fire Prism Grav Tank

-Pheonix Lord Baharoth

-Leman Russ

-Death Cult Assassin

-Wave Serpent

-Space Marine Commander

-Thousand Sons Sorcerer Lord

-Callidus Assasine

-Terminator Castelan

-Black Templar Terminators

-Librarian

-Terminator Captain

-Venerable Dreadnaught

-Fire Dragon Exarch

-Space Marine Terminator Chaplain (Confessors Master of Sanctity Uriel)

-Wolf Priest Logan

-Ork Warboss on Bike

I think the most of any one type he's killed is the Grey Knight Terminators and I think he's killed 13 or 14 of those but I don't keep count, though he's only popped the Grand Master once. The second time a Hammerhead blew him up and the third time he fought Terminators they were with an Inquisitor not a Grand Master and a Crisis Shas'vre got him.

What he meant from the bodyguards comment was that is where the other three shots came from..I think.

True. I'll edit my mistake.

I had Shadowsun take out a Monolith in one turn of shooting. Now that Necron player makes it a point to try and kill her

ya i kind of forget to say that my commander had a burstcannon too, so the gw guy named Andy said that i can group together the shot but re roll only 3 and the was only 3 shots that miss at first then all hit the they all wounded i think it was 6,5,6,4,5,6 the 4,5,5 were my commander shots so they all hit and the carnifex was out in the open.

Well I must say it's not really a fair way to do it since it recreate the very rare situation of:

-all bodyguard with BS4 hit
- Nothing from the BS5 commander hit.

So you should roll seperatly next time.

On the other hand, congratulation for killing someo f these Tyranids.
