Default Re: pihranas and thier drones need help

The drones are transported troops, so only at the begining or end of the pirhanas move.

Also remember if the pirhana moves before they get off they can't move any further that movement phase and they can't disembark if the pirhana moves more than 12".

If you have access to the main rulebook, this is all described on page 62. Drones are no different from normal passengers.

OK everybody, the rules I believe say that when the drones of a Pihrana squad detach they form ONE unit of gun drones. The question I have is this: "Am I reading this correctly?"

I don't think so. They are unlikely to have coherency, for one thing.

Without looking at my codex.. I'm quite sure you are right.. as for coherency? Just start with the middle ones and work your way out best you can to maintain coherency. Besides.. they can get in during their assault phase move.

Thank You Daggoth. I was just wanting to make sure that I was truly reading that right.
