I highly doubt it means what it seems to mean while i'm sure they can "spawn" those weapons i doubt they stay in play so i think he'd be more like an obliterator in that he has and can use any of these weapons but not that he makes one that stays in play while he goes and places another somewhere else.

Because (A) what would you use to represent those weapon emplacements and
(B) free weapons that are worth about 50 points in the case of the lascannon every turn = **** no

Jokaero are the most expensive Inquisitorial Henchmen at 35 pts. However, they are all equipped with digital weapons which can be fired as a lascannon, multi-melta, or heavy flamer on any given turn, but they all have to choose the same one.

Yeah so almost exactly like oblits but cheaper with less weapons and somehow by looking at them i doubt they have 2+ armour ^_^


Still 35 points is a bit of a bargain whats their BS

BS3 and invul 5+ and they add special effects to the unit they join (base on 1d6 roll +1 for each of them in the unit), not for template weapons
2) +12'' range
3) +1 save
4) rending
5) 5+ invul
6) 2 rolls on the table

I guess this can change as it is only "rumors"

Well then you will have much worse surprise than this one...

This codex seems (is?) just so unbalanced on the paper... way too strong.

Tbh, Tau are just no match...
I cross my fingers that the rumor of the new Tau codex coming out this summer is true.
