Default Battlesuits with drones VS ordanace

When BS's OR CS's with sheild drones and are hit by ordanace does everything in the blast get hit per normal rules or do the drones soke up the hits?..... This may just be wishfull thinking on my part.

Correct. All models take a hit. As Drones are T3, I suggest you resolve them first, then roll to wound the Suits.

Not nececarily. If you have a squad of 3 suits and 4 drones and 2 drones and a suit get hit by the ordanance that is 3 hits. You can put wounds on any model but not space around on multi hit models. So ya can let 3 drones in the unit die, 1 suit, 2 drones and a wound on a suit, just not 1 on suit 1 1 on suit 2 1 on suit 3... no. But you can decide who gets hit as far as the rules specify.

Template hits no longer just hit those under the template but models in the whole unit can take damage. Since the suits arent like a normal unit I dont know but it did not specify when I read the rules just that wounds could be dished out accordingly unless more wounds were taken then models in the unit.

Thats how I think it goes.

Hmm I think this might have something to do with the fact that all the guys I play with are transsitioning to the new rules but still kinda sorta playing the old ones.
Under the new rules I should be able to choose who takes the hit in the unit, so doesnt that mean I can have the drones take all the hits instead of the suits even if they were not under the template?

Yes thats it as longe as they are within the shooters range. So a 24 inch range that only sweeps half the unit can only hit the half in range and hits can only be allocated to those in range. But any models can take the hit but only 1 per wound. No letting a 1 wound drone taking all the hits.

Eh whats that for? For the to wound chart? I believe hits are designated before wounds are rolled for or the majority toughness is used then wounds are designated. Either way that barely pertainst to the question of this topic. Or do I have that wrong?

I think theres something in there about who gets wounded first... I'm pretty sure anyone with the majority save (i.e. 2 broadsides 2+ and 4 drones 4+ the drones are in the majority) have to have wounds allocated before the others.

if any can take the hits I would assume majority toughness applies and the ones in the majority must take the hits.
