Hey, I'm [RLM]Darksteel, AKA: Emraldis! I'm an aspiring mapper for UDK, and I used to map for the UT40K development team. Space hulk and manufactorum were mine. There would have been more there but there were a few errors with the lighting engine...

not with the latest codex update, and i'm pretty sure not with the last codex either... I would know, i own both...
what changes is a symbol on their knee pad. It would seem that lexicanum might the standard space marine codex, instead of the specialized DA one. I can assure you that the dark angels do NOT have red trim on their shoulder pads. What they do have is a diagonal red line on their right knee. I hope that helps some!

Honestly, I find this change a good one, I think it adds more strategic depth to the placement of your turrets and generators. What if the enemies targeted your generators and turrets? (unless they already do) I think that might add more strategic elements to the game...

often times they do. The drones against the first wave are the turrets they dropped way ahead of the firing line. Other than that, drones are more of a support unit, and the Tau treat the them as useful rather than expendable, so drones are not used as "suicide troops".

IDK. I use them, and they work fine for me. I like the extra weapons and drones they get over fire warriors. Also, they get more markerlights than other options in general, so I can get more markerlight counters off of them. I agree that they are kind of weak now, but I don't consider them useless.

[RLM]Darksteel Jun 15 2014, 12:53am replied:

I'm not sure I'd call them useless, they are still quite useful IMO, you just have to equip them with a few shield drones. They are definitely MUCH more useful than vespids used to be.
