Default Tau Turrets

I was on forgeworld and saw the Turrets. Was thinking about getting some and wanted to know if anybody else uses them, and how effective they are. And what is a tau sensor tower?

A Tau Sensor turret is an immobile vehicle which has numerous nifty abilities - including a Markerlight.

You can find the full rules in Imperial Armour 3: The Taros Campaign. It's a great read for every Tau player, as it gives an idea how Tau operate in a "real" 40K campaign.

As far as the Hammerhead turret variations are concerned, you'll find the rules in IA3 as well. Most of them are not that great, but the Fusion Cannon one is really awesome (though I've never tried it yet).

Cheers,

I've heard stuff on the actual hammer head turrets. But I was curious about the little immobile ones. In the same category of the Sensor turrets. I believe they deepstrike in at least.

Oh, sorry, little confusion. Yes, they can have the option to deep strike. But, again, the rules are in IA3.

I haven't used them, but they could be quite helpful in-game, especially with the new Disruption Pod rules ^^
