How many times can you tag a unit with ML shots to lower their leadership?
I was just thinking of hammering a unit with ML shots from a squad of pathfinders, and following up with shots from Sniper drones...
Jesus saves!!! Everyone else loses a wound.
You can lower the units leadership by 1 for every markerlight hit you score on that unit. So, as many shots as hit, is your answer. However, there's no point in reducing their leadership to two or below as a roll of snake eyes always passes.
This is a good tactic but requires a fair few markerlights to ensure any serious consequnces.

...Two ones always passes Ld checks? Where's it say that?
Yeah, all markerlight effects stack (upping BS, lowering Ld, etc), so however many markerlights hit, you can bring the Ld down that many times.

An interesting tactic, but I would hardly depend upon it. Say you're tagging a squad of Space Marines. You would need to score successful hits, which would probably have to come from two pathfinder squads, and then follow through with aggressive firepower. The unit will almost definitely fall back, however, the next turn their leadership reverts to normal and they regroup. Worth using on a devastator squad, or a squad sitting on an objective, but it won't win you battles.
