    Forming Drone Squads On The Fly?

    Is it possible/legal to combine drones into a squad during the game?
    For example: If 2 DF were close together, could the drones detach and join to form a 4 drone unit?

    Or could drones detach from a DF and join a squad that had been originally deployed as a fast attack choice? Perhaps some of the original squad had been destroyed. And this could be used to bring it back up to the min 4 for "self aware" status.

    Unfortunately, no. While it would make a certain amount of sense, the ability to reform drone units on the fly isn't one the Tau have available to them. I think the only army that can do something like this is the Orks' "mob up" ability, and, well, they're Orks, so they're cool like that.

    You're right. That would make all the sense in the world.

    house rules for that would be cool.

    it would also be cool to have the drones be able to mop up with any unit. (just think, a fire warrior squad with eith like 8 drones to go with it, and with the new drones that are coming out in the new codex)

    its not me that scares you, its your inability to accept differences

    Well darn. I was trying to find something good to do with the ability to detach the gun drones. But 2 drones do not make a very effective unit.

    But it sure does make sense that drones could find each other and hook up.
    Heck, even pterasquirrels can find each other.
    I mean, how do you think pterasquirrels make more pterasquirrels?

    The only good thing to do with the ability to detach gun drones it to use them to make your devilfish "wider" when using it to shield your FWs from assault during a fish o'fury type operation. Since enemy troops can't pass closer than 1" to your models, popping the drones off the fish and moving them about 1.5" away from it effectivly takes an additional 3-4" out of your enemy's assault path.

    You mean the pterastork doesn't bring them?
