Default Drones

I have a couple of questions for drones

how much do they cost? (points)(battle and shield)

can you put them in squads with pathfinders and battlesuits? (do you have to add or buy anything(upgrades))

what happens if they go by themeselves?(rules other upgrades needed)

thanx for all the help!

i'm 'fraid you'll have to be a bit more specific. for example, 'how much do drones cost' could refer to $$ or points. so i'm a little confused now...

Drone costs can be found in the codex. And about their effectiveness...this is debated..while some love them and swear by them, there are also many who don't (I am one of these people). As stated above...try and be more specific.

Heya Battlecraze

The answers to these questions can be found on Page 28 of the Tau codex for the cost of Gundrones.
As for the price of them and the upgrades or configurations required by the squads you mentioned, you can find those rules on Pages 24 and 28 respectively.

If you don't have a Tau codex, I would advise you to buy one, otherwise, not much help will come of this I'm afraid.

To read more about Gundrones and their uses, we recently had a great thread on this subject, which can be found here: Should I Take Gundrones?.

Cheers!

Yes, between one or two drones must be bought, in other words they do not come free with the drone controller upgrade.

Which sucks because I would love to take a squad of 4 PF (3 w/ RR) and take 8 Drones then stick 'em in a Fish and go crazy.

Never look back at what you have done. If you do you might not see the tree in front of you.
