Default Heroic Tank Busting Gun Drone.

About 2 hours ago I played my tau vs AC, 1000 point.

I was near the end of the game, he just took a battle cannon to my HQ, he dropped a drone and the suit, the last drone ran 12", but on my turn the drone with a ld now 4 regrouped, moved in and blew up a Leman Russ with a glanceing hit.

This drone is going to be painted up special.

Awesome!

You should paint a little Leman Russ kill icon on the top, or on it's antennae.

You could also mount the drone on a special base.

Cool, though, and it just goes to show ya' about elite units.

Cool, thats the way it should be!

Hehe, did I ever tell you guys about the story of me accidentially blowing up Abaddon and his full squad of terminators by accident? The shokk attack gun scattered, and hit way better ... ;D

oh, sorry, I think you all heard it before a few times ;D ;D ;D

AHHHHHHH!!!!!! dont remind me about tank-killing drones! I've been traumatized by them! Whole squad of crisis suits fires at my rhino and does practically nothing (crew shaken) and i had to open my big mouth and say "watch this the drone will do it". Yep, glancing 6...

Sorry Avor, but I think that was cheating. Once the commander dies the drones that he has goes also and anyways he couldn't have regrouped, because he was below half strength

He was part of a bonded unit, a bonded team may regroup when under half strenth.

Under the new rules drones count as part of the unit, so when one dies I have to take a test. So loose some drones I could fail my LD and then the whole hight ptn unit runs.

you mean a lone 'EL? or did he have a bodyguard?

and tank killing drones arent that rare, drones can often account for more tanks than crisis (partly because crisis have plas for marines ..... but that awhole different kettle fo fish :P)

well in my codex it says on pg. 18 under Controlled Drones: "If the character with the drone controller is killed then all his drones are removed..." Unless they changed that in a chapter approved or the new rules I think you were cheating unconciously. Sorry, :'(.
