Default Can a Shas'Ui take EMP Grenades and the rest of the FW team not?

I just got into a disagreement with another player about his tournament roster he posted on a Czech fan site.

He claims that his Fire Warrior Shas'Ui can have EMP grenades and the rest of the squad does not have to take them, since the Shas'Ui has access to the Infantry Armoury and EMP Grenades are listed there.

I read on this forum several times that this was not possible, but his arguement sounds valid enough.

Is he right?

Isn't is written in the Rulebook that: if one member of a team takes a grenade, everyone else has to take the same one too???

I'm pretty sure it does, but I don't have my book with me (I'm at work).

Yes he can - he is able to take an EMP grenade as an armoury upgrade, as opposed to a squad based upgrade.

There are two ways you get EMP - either you buy for the squad, and they all take it, OR the shas'ui takes it from the armoury.


IIRC, it is listed with a points cost from the armoury, making this a valid tactic.

I'm looking at the infantry armory and yes, EMP grenades are in there. Now only if photon grenades were, too...

I believe the photon grenades might be there (codex isn't handy atm), but it doesn't make sense to use just one. Photon grenades only work if the whole squad, or at least the majority, is equipped with them. EMP grenades are another matter. I occasionally give just one to the squad-leader for those death-or-glory attempts. Since they appear in the wargear list, in my opinion this is completely legal. I would rather designate a regular soldier to carry the EMP grenade, but that's unfortunately not legal.
