If you give shield drones to a solo broadside make sure he has stabilizers and a bonding knife so he can at least fire while he falls back and try to rally.
Hey their Tau of course their going to run. But yeah I have to aggree with Gal here in that yes they do have to still take moral/ld tests for their drones dieing. But think about this... would you rather he took those 2 wounds on himself and died or the 2 drones?? Again I have to aggree with Gal that it is imperative that you give them bonding knives to at least give them a chance to regroup and the stabilizers is a very good idea.
