Ok, this I will start as an Poll, but can change in creating a new unit.
Do you like Assault Drones (with or without PW) enough to create a new unit?

Tau aren't getting assault drones or any cc capability aside from the human and kroot auxilaries. No it is un-tauish as are power weapons and thats what I think.

True but in the Firewarrior novel there is that one drone that flies into the Space Marines that were guarding the entrance to the engine room.
There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad

Normal 40k novels need to be taken with a grain of salt.
For FireWarrior, you need the whole shaker.
Does this make anyone else think of those little flying things in half life 2?
thats exactly what i thought.Does this make anyone else think of those little flying things in half life 2?
well, since i came up with the idea, i obviously would have to say yes for it.

I vote no.
Assault drones sound like banshees with jet packs.
Tau are fine with shithouse cc.
If you don't like it, do what I did. Start chaos.
I certainly know that we don't need any sort of cc ability to win. (Talking about tau again.)
Besides, everyone says that GW have made assault too powerful to be realistic in WH40k.
The Tau army therefore helps to make the game more realistic.
Most armies have a hard time assaulting us anyway, and really have to do most of the damage through shooting.
Assault Drones, well before the GW debacle that destroyed drones effectiveness, they were for all intents and purposes 'defensive assault drones', as their job was to get in the way of any assaulting unit. So really all we need is the old rules back.Originally Posted by Dreachon
As for pure assault cant see it happening they dont have the initiative or intelligence to be truly effective at CC, they are good at sacrificing themselves in CC to protect FW but would not think they would be good charging etc.
Also please tell me more about the Vespids, I was unfortunate enough to have seen the link to the info about them to late(it was stopped by GW threats of legal action I believe) what are they and what are their abilities, as far as I can make out they are some sort of insectoid race with good guns (I am probaly wrong about this), so please tell me more.
Saidly, there isn't that much known of them yet.
Only thing I know of them is that they will most likely be a FA or Elite choice for Tau and that their main task is as a fast and mobile counter unit to specialized cc units, most likely against large hordes such as ork boyz or tyranid gaunts, good number of them likely have a flamer.
Nothing of this though has been confirmed so don't get your hopes up.
