Default LOS, XV15s and Drones

It used to be in the latter days of v3 that neither Drones nor Stealth Suits blocked LOS and so other Tau units could be targetted "through" these units. It doesn't seem that this bit is mentioned again in the v4 Tau FAQ, so it seems as though it's rescinded...or rather, they now block LOS like everyone else and so the enemy has to Pass that Leadership Test in order to target past them.

Correct?

No, my foggy memory tells me that the xv-15 team may be ignored for puroposes of the closest unit Ld test.... I will check the Faq.....

yeah, I found it. XV15s can be ignored, but under Drones it doesn't say anything. Looks like Drone units block LOS now but XV15s do not.

That's exactly how it works. Especially now because the drones are used for majority armor saves, and are thus considered like any other unit.

Yeap, drones are viable targets so force priority checks if you want to go past them. XV15's can be ignored. Not too shabby!
