Hey Spooky, have you tried out your O'Shovah list yet? Post results sometime!

P.S. Yes, this is on topic since we're dealing with shield drones and crises suits.

I run a very suit heavy list which contains 8 SDs and I'm toying with giving my commander two and joining him into units to bolster them.
Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.

I use 10 in my current 1500 list - they work great on Monats, due to the Strength/50% Wounds rule, and are valuable on larger units of suits for prolonging their firepower.

The reason I never use shield drones is that the only way to get them is by buying pathfinder Shas'uis of Shadowsuns. At least those are the only places I've seen them. Does anyone have a better source, or should I just convert some (with all the bits I don't have)?

You can simply take a normal drone and leave out the weapons...and if you add a shield generator to it's bottom it looks even more "shield-dronish" :)

In the US, if you get together a group of friends and order over $100, shipping is free. Or, if you go to a GW store, you can usually have them ordered without having to pay shipping.

Hell, I just made mine from SG and Drones, both of which I have in massive quantity as I don't use any of them.

Since were talking about shield drones and shieldage, does anyone think 2 shield drones and a SG are overkill on a close range monat (ie Helios)?
