Drop 5 gun drones from the 11 man and add 5 breachers. Done. They also go in the fish with the drones and fireblade.

Shh, you're not supposed to say that! :D My mistake. I like Yojimbob's idea but Breachers can't be buffed by the Fireblade, so we'll use regular Fire Warriors instead. Here are two versions:

-

#1 - XV8 Cyclic Ion Blasters

HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176)
HQ - Cadre Fireblade w/ Markerlight (42)
Troops - 5x Fire Warriors (40)
Dedicated Transport - Devilfish w/ Burst Cannon; 2x Gun Drones (127)
Elites - 3x XV8s w/ 8x Cyclic Ion Blasters, 1x Drone Controller; 6x Gun Drones (323)
Fast Attack - 6x Gun Drones (48)
Fast Attack - 7x Pathfinders w/ 4x Markerlights, 3x Ion Rifles (68)

Total: 824 - Command Points: 3 (1 Patrol Detachment)

-

#2 - XV8 Flamers

HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176)
HQ - Cadre Fireblade w/ Markerlight (42)
Troops - 5x Fire Warriors (40)
Dedicated Transport - Devilfish w/ Burst Cannon; 2x Gun Drones (127)
Elites - 3x XV8s w/ 8x Flamers, 1x Drone Controller; 6x Gun Drones (251)
Fast Attack - 6x Gun Drones (48)
Fast Attack - 7x Pathfinders w/ 4x Markerlights, 3x Rail Rifles; 2x Shield Drones, 1x Recon Drone (141)

Total: 825 - Command Points: 3 (1 Patrol Detachment)

-

Either of those look interesting?

Figured it was Kastellans :D Those robots have immense firepower, and are durable too. I've found that Cyclic Ion Blasters and Missile Pods do very well against them. The wound reflection is dangerous, but only works when the robots use their invulnerable save. So, force 4+ saves with D3 damage and you'll destroy them quickly!
