The one with the long cyllindrical barrel, that has 3 little slots on each side of the muzzle, is the plasma rifle. It also has a part on top that splits into 2 little tanks/capacitors

The one that ends roughly square, and has one very large capacitor on top near the back, is the fusion gun.

The one that ends in a nozzle, with an extension comming up under the barrel, is the flamer. It also has a large box on top of it, towards the back.

The round disk, is the shield generator

The multi-faceted polygon with balls/spheres on it, with an aerial off the back, is the drone controller, AND/OR the multitracker.

The box of lenses, that curves in the back, is the target lock.

And no worries, I had the same problem myself at very first. ^^

Personal preference. If they dry-fit REALLY well, you can put them together like that, and just glue the antenae on. But they might fall apart. If you want to play with posing their guns and twisting them about, some sticky tac might be a good idea if you can hide it?

For the most part, if you get a devilfish, I think it comes with the 2 drones you'd need, so you can even glue the drones to their flying bases if you want. Some prefer to leave them loose though, so they can take the drones off of the stands, and put them in vehicle recesses.

In the codex (cant give you page as i don't have it with me) on the page that gives you the stats for battlesuit weapons there are pictures of them along side in the same order as the stats are give in the table.

hope this helps

Yup, it's page 17.

But it throws you off for several reasons.

A. The tau font is virtually illegible if you're trying to read the labels.
B. The flamer depicted there isn't the flamer on the sprues.
C. They don't TELL you the order is the same ^^

I was horribly confused the first time around myself. I don't remember how I figured it out. Now, it would have been easier if I had played WH in any capacity before. But I didn't even know what a Melta-Gun was, cept for it sounded like a cheesy 1920's style Death Ray ^^
