The main issue with the Hades Breaching Drill is that a prerequisite to take it on your army is to include a Death Korps Engineer Squad, which is normally only available in a DKoK army based on the list in the Imperial Armour books which itself is based on the previous version of the Imperial Guard codex.

I would suggest talking it over with your regular opponents about it; my personal recommendation would be that you be allowed to take DKoK Engineer Squads in your army (to allow you to take one Breaching Drill per Engineer Squad choise) rather than forgo the prerequisite.

oh right so i need a DKok engineers squad to take a drill? so is that 2 troops choices or is the drill like an upgrade to the squad?

and also what are the engineers capable of doing?

They are both separate Troops choices (as described in Imperial Armour Six: The Siege of Vraks Part Two) but you may only take one Hades Breaching Drill for each DKoK Engineer Squad you take.

As for the Engineers... When taking a Breaching Drill they can follow it through the tunnel it digs and thus deploy near it. They're generally a close support unit but I can't really say much more without giving away unit stats and equipment

given the cheapness and power of this unit, im not looking forward to going up against. anyone had any experience against it? and are skimmer affected by the special deepstrike it has, seeing as they dont touch the ground?
