    Need some comments on this subject

    Now , i have played tau for quite a few years. 4+, i have taken several high places in tourneys including a 2nd place. but i don't understand why all the love for gun drones/shield drones is gone?

    Don't they still serve a useful purpose in wound allocating mischief? from what i can tell they are even more useful in 5th Ed. then in 4th Ed. and i love the look on my opponents face when both the melta gun and the las cannon shot are put on 1 gun drone

    So i would like someone to please tell me why they suddenly vanished from everyones list's?

    With the move to 5th all the other codices got cheaper. On the other hand we still have our fourth ed. codex. Because our stuff is more expensive its better to cram in more guns or more powerful guns than trying to play games with would allocation. If everything dropped in price with the trend so far they'd probably be back in lists.

    I don't use drone squads. I do use drones with fire warriors, battlesuit commanders, marker drone with the XV-25's, Sniper drones, and of course with my devilfish.

    the only time my drones from the d-fish do anything is if it isnt kill points, if it is, they hide. if not, they're a great unit to annoy the opponent, i once had 2 gun drones hold a chaos obliterator in combat for 3 turns, he couldnt hit the things! other than that a couple of sheild drones for the broadsides.

    I don't use the gun drone squads as my fast attack choices are already filled up.
    However, I do use both gun and shield drones in my units.

    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.

    I always add 2 shield drones to my broadsides. Add 2 gun drones to my torch squad. I will usually add a shield and gun drone to my commander. If I can spare the points I will add gun drones to my pathfinders (to make them a bit harder to kill).

    I use gun drones in my firewarrior teams for added pinning tests at close range and to shield my favored firewarriors from wounds.

    The only reason I don't consider adding drones into my FW squads is to keep them at the 12 man number. That would keep them from embarking on a DF for movement.

    It's true, however I often have two teams on foot, and two in the DF. The foot bound team has drones, and the DF teams make use of the DF's drones if they get unmounted.
