Default Grenades?

Should I include photon grenades with my firewarriors? Im trying to go for a mech Tau style of play.

If you're going for mech tau, I'd say you wouldn't need them, but that all depends on what opponents you're going against. If its an assualt based army, it probably won't help because due to the number of attacks.. unless you plan on using the squad really aggressively, I don't think its needed in mech.

If you play a mechanized Tau force, most of your infantry will be able to flee in a Devilfish so hanging around just to make the points worth it is pointless. You may consider EMP grenades if you play VERY agressively; slamming into a Landraider with 12 Fire Caste gives the end result of 5 Glancing and 1 Penetrating hits, a near-immortal transport to scoop them up next turn, and the death of an AV14 monster without firing a shot.

Photons are a waste of points; and especially in Mech Tau since the FW are either a)In the Devilfish or b)Unloaded to throw some firepower and then loading back up! ^-^

Well I might havr to arm my FWv with grenades because of my ****** up battle force( i will never NEVER order one agin.) The sprue is missing a 12th arm. besides it might be usefull because at the moment i only have 1 Devilfish so if it dies my FWs might need them.(dont order a battle force of any kind please! >)
