Correct. The fact that they can be ignored for target priority does not mean that they can be ignored when determining whether or not you can shoot an IC. They're still the closest legal target, so tough luck for the opponent.

In total agreement with this.

Back to the orignal theme of this thread, my favorite Crisis unit is:

'El w/ TLPR, FB, HWMT
2 BGs W/ TLPR, FB, HWMT

Yeah its pricy, its inneficient, it has 12" range on its secondary weapon. I'll give all that on its downside.

Upside. JSJ from cover with this for 2-3 turns and a whole squad of MEQs disapears.

Take out a whole squqd of MEQs, and most MEQ armies start looking a little sparse. And, you probably have thwarted your opponents main thrust. My regular opponents look for this unit on the table then TRY to avoid it at virtually any cost. They rarely succeed, as it is too mobile to avoid. It also is good at taking out heavy vehicles in a pinch.

Oh, deep striking with this unit has worked quite well for me. Risky yes, but its war, right? Be interesting to see how this tactic works with the PFDF deepstrike thingy.

If you read the Tau fact sheet on the GW website you will find the following entry:

A stealth team never blocks LOS to other Tau units. Similarly, an IC cannot claim to be immune to enemy fire by being near them or njoining the unit.

I see that part, but

Nowhere do I see that.

What Tau "fact sheet?" The FAQ? Because it says nothing of the kind...
