I would have to agree... The Tau (I play em, so I have the right to say the following):
Their BS is reasonable... because they are mere TAU, not like the highly trained Aspect Warriors and Commanders!
The fact that their Battlesuits can mount twin-linked anything is not the point, The point is that the normal Fire Warriors has a longer ranged weapon, and hits only half the time... seems reasonable to me!
They are only wusses, when the Ethereal isn't there! They can re-roll when an Ethereal is present, and although no save, it is pretty good at HtH...
The Broadsides are meant to be Heavy-weapons platforms, with a better range of motion and versatility. That's why they have twin railguns and a smart-missile system! Give em a Target Lock and each one could take out a separate tank each turn! Eat that, IG!!!
Ethereals suck, they are soooo important and wussy! I use none of e, because I never have to worry about running! I take out all the long-range artillery first thing with the Broadsides and the Hammerheads... I deep strike my Stealth suits and point my little red light at an enemy and... ker-BOOM!!! LOL
Whats so wrong about a BS 4 Railgun? Nothing... Whats wrong with BS 4 Pathfinders? Holds down the enemy too long... I want them to move into range of my guns!
