Default Sniper Drone Teams

Can someone please tell me a page reference where it says that each Sniper Drone team can be feilded seperately ,
and also just out of curiosity, is there a limit that the drones have to stay from the controller guy, or is it the normal 2"

without grabbing my 'dex, it is right there in the sniper drone entry.

The 3 drones and spotter must maintain coherency.

A team, 3 Sniper Drones and the Controller, Must remain in unit coherance. But each Team maybe field seperatly. As you can field 3 Teams in one Heavy Support Slot.

The 3 drones and spotter must maintain coherency as normal.

As for the bit about all 3 acting and being fielded seperately it was in the 4th FAQ and in the 5th ed FAQ page 2 Question #3 : http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_...th_Edition.pdf

I would really like to disadvice running sniper teams in the new edition they can easly get F!@# over in a quit a few games like dawn of war or any kind of annhilation as each squad counts for a kill point. All he has to do is put 4 wounds on your team and well lets hope u can roll a 4+ on your spotter or you just gave up an easy point. Dawn of war these guys are lose, but so is all tau onless your running heavy suits.

If you didn't deploy your drone teams with some cover, you've already failed IMO. Deploy them far apart, force your opponent to ping pong back and forth if they want to kill them. Yes they count as individual kill points, but so does a drone team on a tank. Tau are fubar'd on kill points. If your opponent will go a foot or two out of his way to kill a sniper team, it is just as effective as a broadside. It buys you time to shoot the snot out of him while he runs back at your main force.
