There are 8 gun drones with the Suits now as well as two separate units. Essentially, the extra units would be to try and control enemy advance and daisy chain as best as possible close to the suits to make use of the drone controller. I'm after massed fire.

Total of 36 gun drones on the field between the two units plus suits plus Piranhas. That's a lot of shots, I hope that will mitigate the worse BS and with the pathfinders to help with Markerlight support they should be viable?

I don't have ShadowSun in the collection at the moment but if I pick her up I would likely rework to include her.

I'm thinking about converting some Vespids too because, yes, the models are poor.

Ah right didn't see the Drones because you wrote them in the same line as the unit name.

I tryed to build a similar list maximising the stuff i already have. I thinks it's not so bad. It lost a bit of speed and dmg (changed stingwings for Kroot :sad: ). But i think the stealthsuit-buff with shadowsun could be fun...

We will see... I hope that this will be succesfull.... What do you think?
