I have a broadside with shield drones in my army. If my broadside gets hit by a lascannon, do i still get my inv. save? There is a rule in the BGB that says models with no saves have to be removed first (pg. 24). I really don't like that, so i was wondering if there was a special rule or something. Thanks
I posted this in the tau forums but the guys i play with wanted it here hehe.

Well the BGB also states that when you take wounds from shooting, "you begin by removing all models that do not get a saving throw." Page 24 Now the AP from a lascannon will negate the armor save from the unit (1 Broadside and 1 Shield drone) but leaving the invul. save on the shield drone. So wont you begin by allocating the wounds to those who won't get a save a.k.a. the broadside or do the shield drones give the entire unit an invul save?
1. Enemy determines wounding hits
2. Determine whether Mixed Armour applies
3. If no Mixed Armour, then the owning player allocates hits
4. If no Save is allowed, then just remove the model. If saves are allowed then roll them. If no Armour Save is allowed, but an Invulnerable Save/Cover Save is available, then roll that.
5. Remove models that didn't save
In the case of the Broadside and Shield Drone they both have the same Armour Save, so Mixed Armour doesn't really apply. Because of that the owning player can allocate the wound to the Shield Drone. Its Armour Save is negated by the weapons low AP, but it can then opt to take its Invulnerable Save.
