Tau Rail Rifles

http://uk.games-workshop.com/tau/railrifle/1/

Everything you need can be found right there at GW's site, including all of the rules for Pathfinders and the new Rail Rifles, as well as a downloadable and printable PDF file. Don't forget to download the v4.0.1 FAQ as well for the new rules regarding markerlights if you're using Pathfinders (in terms of cover saves and markerlights).

Cheers!

Yea Rail Rifles rock, but you need the Target Locks even though they get hot.

You do, they don't get hot if everyone's firing at the same enemy unit. The only downside is you usually do. 8)

With a PF unit that has RR you dont want to fire at one unit. You mark a squad in cover with 4 ML and you Shas'Ui marks a Transport or Vehicle. 2 of your RR target the Squad in cover and an HH uses the remaining 2 for a Sub and SMS Than your other RR targets the Vehicle, hopefully rear or side armor, and pops it.

Pulse Carbines dont have the Target Locks. The Rail Rifles do.
