Default Question on HQ's

Hello,
I have just a quick question. Me and my friend have just gotten into warhammer and both received army's from friends who didn't use them any more. He got a Tau army and I got a Space Marine...

I'm wondering if it's legal for him to mount a rail gun on his crisis suit HQ? Its not really under the battle systems but it is in the description list.

Thanks for your answers

maybe if its a broadside, not an HQ. Sorry but you cant unless its a broadside.

Not that tau players wouldnt mind toting more railguns.

I certainly don't mind, even if I have to sacrifice 2 hardpoints to bring 1 Relentless jetpacking railgun. Modeling it would be pretty cool too, with a suit carrying the massive weapon like a particle cannon. ;D

One can really dream. :P

Well congrats at spotting the flaw, it is indeed not under battlesuit systems, and therefore not an option open to Crisis suits (including commanders). The reason it is in the description list is simply because broadsides are battlesuits too.

Thanks for all your help. He is gonna raise hell when I tell him he cant use it even tho his HQ isn't showing rail gun on it. My 500 point SM army can only handle on rail gun at a time so I think his hammerhead is quite enough.
