Not sure if this has been brought up yet, but from hearing the new rumoured wound allocating rules, does this mean our shield drones will be far less effective? If so will they still be worth fielding?
I dont personally use these drones, but plenty of people at my local club use them alot. Im interested in hearing what other people think.

You can distrubute the wounds freely in the unit (prior to saves), but each model in the unit must be wounded for a second wound to be allocated to a specific model.
Example: If you have a unit of 2 Broadsides and 2 Shield Drones:
Fire from Heavy Bolters, 6 of the shots hit, 5 wound. You now distribute the wounds, each model recieve one wound they need to save and you allocate the last wound to a Shield Drone.
Fire from Lascannons on the same unit, 2 hit, 2 wound, you allocate the wounds on the Shield Drones and take your inv. saves.

Why use SD’s when everything has a 4+ cover save? Is this the end of our useful little SD’s? Nahhh, the thing is that TLOS has almost negated our JSJ ability *cries*, so expect to see an increase of the little guys. Plus, with side infiltration expect melta and plasma at its worst!

Unless I'm mistaken, you need to see the base of the model to fire, but if you can see the base of one model the entire unit is fair game. So hiding a unit of crisis suits behind a hill should be easy.
