Default Ld and attachment to Drones

If I attach my Shas'o or Shas'el to a unit of drones, does he confer his Ld to the unit?

if you mean, joins a seperate gun drone unit, yes, just like standard rules.
If these are part of his wargear thena gain they use his leadership but remember he will still be an independant character then!

yes they get his Ld, but he will then be subject to the majority rules aswell.

Waht Diz said, except it works in his favor that way. The commander joins 8 4+ save drones, all those 4+ saves have to go down first as the majority before he has to make a save at all. Pretty sweet...

IIRC, when a unit like that takes 10 hits the first 8 go to the drones as they are in the majority and the 9th goes to the Shas on the drones toughness and the 10th goes to a drone

(bear with me, I just avoid the majority rules, too much hassle :P)

if the commander has no drones as wargear then the first 8 hits will all be allocated to drones, then all the next shots (you can choose....eg can decide who gets hit by the las and plas and who gets hit by bolters) to the commander using his toughness and armour save.

Yeah, and not to turn this into a Majoprity save discussion, but if the unit takes that much (8 hits) from a single unit's volley of fire, then the first 8 would go the the 8 drones before the Commander gets allocated a hit. Of course then, he gets one (just like all the other models in the unit) and the remainin are excess hits still needing to be allocated. These excess hits are then able to be allocated as you like, most likely on a drone in this case so the Comander doesn't stand a change of taking too many wounds.

Now, keep in mind that they situation I'm describing here is from shooting hits. The Commander can't take hits that if he isn't in base contact in close combat beacuse, even though he's a single dude, he counts as a unit all on his own in close combat, the drones all being a separate unit too.

The cool thing is that if the 8 drones and Commander take say, 5 hits from one enemy unit shooting losing, say, 3 Drones, the Drones are still in majority. If another enemy unit fires on them, the Drones saves take those hits first still until there are more hits than models and then it can lap around.

but remember that you cant double up wounds until everyone has a hit allocated.

and I much prefer to just keep the majority rules at arms length and just use the Ic rule, that way the commander never gets hit :P

oh yes, of course, this was just an example ;D

one of the typical, unforgivable beginner mistakes IMO (joining your commander with another squad)! You ahve been given IC status on him, which makes you immune to almost all fire if you move sensibly, so why waste it is my line of thiking!
