    Someone touched on this in another thread, would be kewl if there was a special Tau army that could use Crisis' as Troops or something and be a totally drone/battlesuit army.

    I brought it yup and we all kinda agreed that it would be really hard to balanced. If you wann take the time and try, id love to see the results and help test them.

    Definatley theres 3 ways i can see at the moment of balancing the army,
    1. Special Rules that apply to all units in the army like everything gets BS+1 etc. (just an example )
    2. Reduce pts cost and stats of units to allow more in.
    3. Increase pts cost and stats of units to make them more effective.

    I like the idea of Special Rules myself, maybe a rouge Tau scientist has created a super-intelligent drone program that makes Drones the troops and up the unit size to 6-12 or something. So Drones would get higher leadership, or even fearless, i dont see why a drone would ever run away it has no fear of death and therefore should have to face leadership tests, along with higher BS or something.

    I was talking about the all battlesuit being hard to balance, as for the drones being fearless it say that the drones are programed for self preservation. You could make arule like that program was removed.

    Yeah to me it doesnt make much sense that they would program that in, let alone program them to only be as intelligent as a squirrel lol.

    Hard to balance the suits? they are already balanced im not changing anything about them (well i could do but so far not :lol: ) All i&#39;ve done so far is improve drones to act as Troop choices to replace Fire Warrior squads and Kroot.

    Replacing Pathfinders and Stealthsuits is easy i think, Stealth Drones

    "Stealth Drones?" i hear you say,
    Stealth Drones could use the same technology as the Stealthsuits themselves and be mounted with, yes, you guessed it Burst cannons

    As for Pathfinders.. some type of Scout Drone perhaps.. more ideas to come.

    A good friend of mine has already made an all drone army, Drones with pulse rifles on tripods as fire warriors, stealth drones with burst cannons cast in clear resin and Heavy gun drones for battle suits. Its really cool, hes even made a Giant Devilfish drone based around a CD&#33;

    I saw some guy on ebay selling an all drone army. But instead of making all new stats, he just replaced, for example, FW models with Drone models. Exact same stats, points, and weapons, just now its a drone. He did this for the rest of the models. Using modded drones in their place.
