So I figured I'd check the GW website for the newly added 40k FAQ.
Um lets look at Tau Empire. Imagine my horror when i read the first line.
A devilfish does not have the scout special abilitiy. If Pathfinders start the game deployed inside the Devilfish they loose the scout ability. Pathfinders must deploy on foot to deploy ahead of the main army.
WTF? A squad that you are forced to buy a Devilfish for, that background fluff and logic demands they use the Devilfish to deploy ahead of the main army with, have to start the game on foot?
"Lets park the devilfish over there so Shas'ui Fio'la can talk to the pretty Eldar girls. They are so cute in their Cloaks and camo gear. Don't worry guys we'll just walk 5 clicks to the forward postion on foot instead."
This rule is so silly, i've alwyas used my devilfish to make a move before the game starts and put my pathfinders in a forward position. Now they say we can't...

GW Games developer: "I know lets feed our financial machine by forcing people to buy a devilfish for their Pathfinders which are 'scouts' and by background nature have to deploy ahead of the main army!"
GW Playtester: "Yeah great idea, two birds with one stone, profit and fluff need... Um.... But somethings missing..."
GW Games developer: "...."
GW playtester: "I know! Lets make it completely useless and totally destroy our weak sales/character argument by making the Devilfish unable to deploy ahead of the main army with the scouts that it carries into combat!"
GW Games developer: "Brilliant!!! Now lets bow and worship the ever hungry god of greed that is Slaanesh!"
Both: "Oh Slaanesh we are not worthy"
