For some reason I thought that a sniper drone team acts independantly of their controller.
I fought against a Vindicare assassin last night, who can see stealth units pretty effectively. More importantly, it can single out any model to assign the wounds to. So when that Vindicare picked out my Spotter, I had to look up the ruling on drone controllers.
As far as I can tell, sniper drones die when the spotter dies. Is there anything that would suggest otherwise? I could have sworn I read they are independant...
When the spotter dies the drones "die" for want of a better word. Not only is this dangerous in the situation outlayed but also with the wound allocation rules. The controller is a different model so if the unit takes 4 wounds a save has to be allocated to the spotter.
So the unit is very fragile in that regards.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
Regarding the word "independent": perhaps you're thinking about the way that the three SDT units are chosen from one FOC entry but otherwise are *set up* independently?
Whatever the case is, the Sniper Drones will disappear if the Spotter is killed, as he has the drone controller and they are the drones under its control.
