Currently I run a commander with this configuration
-hard-wired drone controller
--2 shield drones
IS this illegal? I've been playing it this way for a long time and no one has said BOO about it, but I was reading the codex (that I thought I had had memorized), turns out, you can't take BOTH a Shield Generator AND a Positional Relay unless you only take 1 gun...
Say it ain't so...
no you've been cheating
you don't need a shield gen anyway cause you got 2 shield drones
An XV8 Crisis suit has a maximum of 3 Hard Points which must be filled. Anything you take from the two columns in the Battlesuit Armoury which include the word "SYSTEMS" in their title are counted towards filling these points. Anything taken from the "Wargear" column is not, so you can use as many of these items as you wish. Vectored Retro Thrusters however do not allow you to take Drones, so you cannot use either the ordinary Drone Controller or the hard-wired version if you take VRT, since you are obliged to take at least one drone if you take a Controller of either type.
"Tau Commandment #226: Participants who use Velocity Trackers in the Tau Clay Pigeon Tournament will be disqualified"
didn't think so, but the drones have just been gettin taken out by bolter fire anyways while the Shas'O weathers the storm...
so I can save myself 20 points I guess... but the model is so badass looking with the shield gen
