I really like your list! I think it looks very solid! As you suggested yourself would i also recomend that you switch the stealth team for an additional Xv9 with GDs... you should furthermore get at least 4 or 6 shield drones that can be with the y'vahra in case you don't get first turn, unless you are sure that there is great LOS terrain or that your buddy has a lot of primary threats...

Thanks for the input Arka, your's is always a one worth waiting for =)

And the last one is actually the Y'vahra's own drone. The one that gets 3++ that I will obviously never get to use, but can you blame me for hoping? Also that'll give me a reason to paint it in the commander inverted colours which I find always looks good on the board =)
Arka0415 wrote:I'm not sure how the points work out since you don't have the final list written out, but I would try to give the Y'vahra both of the unique MV52 Shield Drones if you do that (instead of giving one drone to a Strike Team). Single drones are just so easy to kill and steal First Blood or points in Kill Point missions. The MV52 Drones may seem like a waste (since they rarely get their full 3++ save), but you'd be paying the extra few points not for the extra save, but for the ability to deploy both with the Y'vahra. I think that's worth it.
demurr wrote:I understood that taking drones as wargear for everything instead of separate units might be more beneficial since morale will never cost you more then a single drone and the weapons with multiple shots, like a heavy bolter for example will be forced to shoot at a unit of two drones and will theoretically make less of an impact on the army as a whole. Does that make sense?

6-model Drone units are too large, however the drawback of their large squad size is balanced out by their effectiveness as mechanized units in Devilfish, and as accompanying units for XV8s.
