The spotters of Sniper Drone teams carry Pulse Pistols, as do the escapeing pilots of a Crisis Suit Ejection system.

The Neutron blaster has some BS explanation about crystals that harmonize with the Vespids wing beat frequency or something, though you could ignore that if you'd like.

Yeah, I'll modify the threat range so all the pulse weapons line up...

EDIT: Played with some threat ranges, left the BC at 20, because I imagine it's difficult to aim properly. Made the Rail Rifle's threat 18-20, but also added Unreliable (they used to Get Hot, but they don't anymore, but I imagine the tech isn't quite up to mass production quality yet...)

My Tau bias is definitely showing here, but I think having the PCs work for the Tau Empire is rife with potential. The Tau are the only multi-racial empire in 40k, (not counting Ogryns and Ratlings and the like), leaving it so you could have a human, a kroot, a fire caste, and a water caste all in the same party, for example. There are a lot more renegade humans in the Tau Empire than renegade Tau in the Imperium.

I have to admit this appeals to me primarily because I believe the Space Marines and the Empire in general are really more useful as villians than as protagonists.

Here be Tau Drones, suitable for Personal Lieutenant or similar feat:

Gun Drone (Medium Construct Flyer 55 XP): Str 10, Dex 16, Con 10, Int 6, Wis 12, Cha 4; SZ M (11, Reach 1); Spd 60 ft. flight; Init VII; Atk V; Def VII; Resilience VII; Health VI; Comp None; Skills: Notice V; Qualities: class ability (Bloodsworn: harm's way I).
Gear: Twin-Linked Pulse Carbine

Shield Drone (Medium Construct Flyer 65 XP): Str 10, Dex 16, Con 10, Int 6, Wis 12, Cha 4; SZ M (11, Reach 1); Spd 60 ft. flight; Init VII; Atk I; Def VII; Resilience VII; Health VIII; Comp None; Skills: Notice V; Qualities: class ability (Bloodsworn: harm's way I), damage reduction 4.

(Yes, Shield Drones require a large expenditure of feats to get, I imagine most Tau with Shield Drones are Captains with lots of Basic Combat Feats...)

Neat work on the Drones there.  Also, I picture a Drone Controller prize that gives out a specific Drone (breaks some rules about Personal Lieutennant and temp feats, but I think its fitting).  Unless I'm misremembering their wargear rules?

I imagine you could buy a drone and/or drone controller the same way you can buy a horse.

Sniper drones coming soon. are here:
Sniper Drone (Medium Construct Flyer 65 XP): Str 10, Dex 16, Con 10, Int 6, Wis 12, Cha 4; SZ M (11, Reach 1); Spd 60 ft. flight; Init VII; Atk VII; Def VII; Resilience VII; Health VI; Comp None; Skills: Notice V; Qualities: class ability (Bloodsworn: harm's way I), invisibility.
Gear: Rail-Rifle

Entirely possible.  I just figured Prize because as I understand it only the officer units use them (squad commanders, elites in drones etc) - that they're not something everyone (who can afford it) has / can have (like a car, or its feudal equilivent - the horse).  Of course, different strokes and what-not.

True, only the higher ranked Tau have drones, but they also live in a communist caste driven society, where the lower ranks wouldn't have the clout to request drones. For a Rogue Trader or the like it'd all be about the money, though as xenotech it could just as much be a prize. On the other hand, Drone Controllers aren't as rare as things like Plasma Pistols or the like, never mind xenos artefacts that you'd normally consider prizes...
