As a markerlight source, how pathfinder compare to marker drones (in a drone VX1-0 formation or not) in a game? To me (i am still painting a small army, my first game hasn't come yet, but i'll keep you updated) pathfinder are meant to stay in a strategic point on the map with good cover and mark whatever comes up, and drones are a more mobile source of marker lights.
I planed of using a bit of both (at the moment i only have 5 marker drones) as pathfinder are still quite cheap.
What are your thoughts on the marker drone vs pathfinder debate?
(feel free to move/delete this post if i missed the topic dedicated to this problem)

In fact now that I think about it I struggle to understand why I need my PFs at all anymore.. ;(
Overheal wrote:Not following the math then, since a networked ML drone and a PF have the same BS and number of MLs per model.
I would say then that the reason to take PFs would be as part of a devilfish or something, but at minimum they should include the Recon Drone for the homing beacon.

How about the math on a VX01 net with 16 MLs?
