That's sinking a lot of points in protection on a unit that already costs a bunch. Not sold on the Y'vahra.
Not if you were planning to field those elements in your list anyway. Using a Crisis unit with Drones is not really going far out of your way for protection. ^^
I agree but you're taking another units protection tool away from THEM is part of my problem. Lots of points for an expensive model when you could take better units for the role. It's all moot anyway until the Chapter approved come sout and then once we get a codex it all REALLY goes out the window.
The few times I've run her it was pretty much exactly this way, charged up the table to where my CIB+ drone squad dropped in. The suits ghosted behind the 109 for range matching and charge protection and they were so busy dumping rounds into the Y'vahra I didn't miss having the drones for the suits at all until turn 4. So for me I exchanged the protection from wounds the drones brought for protection from getting shot the 109 provided. Depends on if your opponent bites on the distraction, and if there are enough targets to satisfy that kind of short ranged spearhead.
