I believe it was something most people have been overlooking. Its already difficult to get rearm and refuel since EVERY model in the FORMATION needs to be within 6".

Am I correct in thinking that since the rule says "If all surviving models in the formation are within 6" at the end of the movement phase..." and the drones would be apart of the formation, that even if only one drone was left and ended the movement within 6" of the table edge the entire formation could come back in on the next turn?

That is what it says in Mont'Ka, are you seeing a different wording somewhere else?
nic wrote:Unless there is an errata I missed this is not correct. The wording is quite clear that it is all the models in a unit from the formation - not all models in the formation. Once the drones detach they are a separate unit for all purposes; they have no impact on the piranha unit being within 6" of a table edge.
The drone factory idea is still a IMO gimmick, useful in some games perhaps but mostly just to keep a cheap fast objective grabber alive until turn 5.
