Default 2 quick questions

ok i just got two questions to ask you guys and your help would be much appreciated

1st Question: Tau FW have a little antenna on there heads/helmets and i was wondering if it's compulsory to have them on, because i think they look better without them

2nd Question: The Hammerhead has 2 shot types Solid and Submunition, do you have to decide on one of those shot types for the entire match or can you decide whether your shooting a solid shot or submunition

Thanks guys

@ first: Its entirely up to the modeller, they don't really count for anything, so have no penalty for the WYSIWYG rule. Take them off and enjoy. (I personally like to think it lets them listen to the radio)

@ second: You can choose every turn. think of it like a modern tank bringing 6 rounds of each type of ammo for the main cannon. Just lets you be better equipped for the situation.

It won't be compulsory to have the antenna, if someone argues against this you can always say they're antenna-less firewarriors that count as regular firewarriors.

The Hammerhead can change between the two shots throughout the game, you don't need to stick to one.

you could consider the hammerhead altering its firepower to project a shotgun effect in thought. Or altering the power to a concentrated blast.

Unless the antennas actually do something... no it shouldn't matter. If someone really makes a stink about it just say that the antenna was removed to make them WYSIWYG valid.

Antennas don't affect game play anyways. I believe in the rules it explicitly lists things like antennas, weapons, wings, ect. as not counting for line of sight.
