Welcome to Librarium Online!
Just got Codex.
What now? WHere do I go from here? Can u have 1 Battlesuit leader AND 1 Estherial? Can u have 1 Gun Drone AND one Shield Drone as one choice?
And Finaly, is there a site or something that shows u how to put all the units together?
yes, you can have 1 battlesuit commander and 1 ethereal since you can select 2 HQ choices. i do believe you can field 1 shield and 1 gun drone when they are controlled by a drone controller.
As for assembly instructions it should by in the back of the box and there is a sheet in the hammerhead and devilfish boxes that show you how to put everything together.
just look through the codex and see what units interest you and make a list of stuff you want to buy or you could just read other peoples posts to get a general idea of what is good and what isn't so good.
if you intend to get 3 battlesuits a box of firewarriors and some kroot it is probably best to buy the battleforce since it is a very good deal and saves you money.
One last queston..........the Codex doesn't Say anything about a Drone Controller does it? Is it a Drone itself or...........???
The drone controller is one of three things:
The first is a Battlesuit Support System available to XV-8s and XV-88s. The second is a hard-wired system available to Shas'Ui Team Leaders and any Tau model of Shas'Vre rank and above- including your Aun. The third is a vehicle upgrade.
It is mentioned in the Codex and I can't post any points costs.
Can ya just give me the page #?
stuff about the hard wired drone controller and drones in general are on page 18
stuff about attaching them to vehicles is on page 20
basically you buy the drone controller and then you buy drones for it, but its all explained clearly in the codex
the bit i would recomend reading is the section about targetting mixed (drone + something else) units as allocating hits in close combat/shooting can get very messy
