Pathfinder And His Jetbike
This Article was written by:
Weapons Pulse Carbine with marker light. Each pathfinder is mounted on a Tau jetbike. See the Tau Jetbike special rules.
Options One Shas'La may be upgraded to a Shas'ui for +5 points. He may be given additional equipment from the armoury. One in Three Tau jetbikes may be given Burst Cannons in place of their Drone's Pulse Carbines for +8 pts, or Rail Rifles for +15 points (They do get hot! In this case they overload the engine...)
Special RulesTau Jetbike This light one Tau skimmer is a new innovation of the Earth caste. It consists of a light grav lifter attached to the rear of a chassis, with a slung gun drone armed with twin pulse carbines slung below. This allows great and manoeuvrability whilst maintaining an almost eerily quiet ride.
As the gun drone is capable of targeting and firing on their own, the rider may fire his own weapon to increase the firepower of the unit. The Jetbike may move up to 6" in the movement phase as listed under Tau Jetpacks in the Tau Codex (Page 16) but may not deep strike, but otherwise follows these rules exactly. The Gun drone may fire in addition to the rider's CQB Carbine. If this is done, the gun drone uses its BS Definition: Battle Sister or Ballistic Skillof 2, whilst the rider uses his BS Definition: Battle Sister or Ballistic Skillof 3. Otherwise, the gun drones shots are BS Definition: Battle Sister or Ballistic Skill3 as the rider controls them.
Pathfinders Follow the same rules as Pathfinders, but may not take a Devilfish for obvious reasons...
