Default Farsight Doom Squad Question...


Someone mentioned the Farsight squad of doom in a post I read, I'm already the process of creating this cause I think its wrong >
My question is, if I give them all 2 shield drones and they all have different set ups etc (for allocation), when I allocate do I allocate like...

Suit, drone, drone, suit, drone drone, suit, drone, drone. etc etc until it reaches farsight and I start again?

Thanks for the help ;D
ZoDan.!

if they all have different sets ups, it possible to have the entire squad on 1 wound, without removing a suit.

You can allocate the hits like you said anyway. The only difference is that if they are all different, each model takes wounds individually, if they were the same, you would have to remove a suit if the unit takes more than 2 wounds.

hope this helps

I think he knows that... but is asking about how Shield Drones are effected... as far as I'm aware, despite their owner being unique the Shield Drones are not... so I think it would go more like this...
14 /16 on Shield Drones (Depending If you gave 2 to Farsight as well as everyone else)
1 on Crisis A
1 on Crisis B
1 on Crisis C
1 on Crisis D
1 on Crisis E
1 on Crisis F
1 on Crisis G
1 on Farsight

Because the Shield Drones are all Identical then they are done at the same time. Unless of course one of the Crisis Body Guards has Iridium Armour. Then his 2 would be done separately.

[i]Edited- Corrected the number of Drones in the Squad

I see so...


Crisis A Crisis B Crisis C Crisis D Crisis E Farsight

They each have 2 shield drones Bar Farsight. They take say 11 wounds.

Crisis A Crisis B Crisis C Crisis D Crisis E Farsight
Takes 2 Takes 2 Takes 2 Takes 2 Takes 2 Takes 1

Ok now Crisis A to E can allocate those two wounds to there shield drones?
And yes random ones with have like feel no pain etc and 2+ all having different loads outs bar the fact they all have shield drones.

Thanks and yes this is helping ;D

Before you can start stacking the wounds like that, everything must have 1 wound allocated to it. so the Shield Drones must have a number of wounds equal to them and one wound per Crisis Suit. You can not allocate wounds from Crisis Suits on to Shield Drones (which seems to defeat the point of Shield Drones if you ask me lol)

So as an example you get wounded by say... 20 hits... as an example...
you'd put...
14 12 on to the Basic Shield Drones
2 on the Shield Drones with Iridium Armour Owner
1 on Crisis A
1 on Crisis B
1 on Crisis C
1 on Crisis D
1 on Crisis E
1 on Crisis F


Crisis G and Farsight don't have any wounds assigned to them.

Say you got wounded 43 times, they could be allocated something like this
28 24 On Normal Shield Drones
4 On the Iridium Drones
2 On Crisis A
2 On Crisis B
2 On Crisis C
1 2 On Crisis D
1 2 On Crisis E
1 2 On Crisis F
1 2 On Crisis G
1 On Farsight

There was a rather good explanation of wound allocations a while ago. I'll try and dig it up for ya

[i]Edited- Corrected the number of Drones in the Squad and the locations of the Wounds that were on the removed Drones.

Merqu, I only have one criticism of your wound assignment. Farsight has way more wounds than anyone else in the squad, so I tend to assign most fire to him first unless he's down to 2 wounds or less or it can insta-gib him. It's a tactic well worth using, both for the longevity of your guns and the look on your opponent's face when he realizes that you're assigning shots deliberately to a special character.

Also, you were giving the squad too many shield drones. Remember that the retinue of 7 suits can only have 14 drones total, Farsight doesn't have any, so it should be 12 regular shield drones, and 2 with Iridium.

Which, to my understanding and stated above, is not legal. You have to hit everyone in the unit before you can double up.
