y'know, I realy dont like grots. Nothing personal against em, in fact the grot models look pretty sweet, i just dont like thier fluff at all. So ive been wanting to play ammo runts, but Ive been havng trouble thinking of something to play to in leiu, to count as ammo runts. But now I think Ive got it, looted gun drones. Little buggers that a mek hit with a wrench until all they could do is follow thier remote, they cant even change thie force of thier floatiness, so when the extra weight of the ammo is removed they just keep goin up! Not sure how thier retrieved...maybe they run out of batteries eventualy, or da Boyz use fighta-bommas or squigeons to get em. And it gives me an excuse to play gun drones, I love those things, If I could play an Tau army entirely out of gun drones I probably would. Anyway, that is my crazy idea, thoughts?
Randomness is not an art, thierfore I understand it perfectly.
Hah! I love it. Good idea. Very Orcy.
Nobody like a grot! Why do you think the Orks are so mean to them?Originally Posted by Foolish Scrounger
Nice idea to, would work really well!Or they just decide to go raid some Tau and take their drones...Originally Posted by Foolish Scrounger
I think it is a pretty good idea. The Orks (especially if you are playing a "Deathskulls" clan) are known for their looting of technology from other races. There is no reason an Ork mek could not have scavenged a couple of ammo-drones for his warboss. Just make sure you convert them enough to look Orky. By this I mean weigh them down with silly amounts of ammo and stick some daft-looking rockets on them to "giv dem sum xtra lift." Or something like that anyway.
Imperialis_Dominatus makes a good point - it might be a good idea to make some copycat drones out of Ork tech. The decision is up to you though...
Good luck, post pics when you have finished.
Awesome idea, I love it. The thought of a gun drone floating away had me laughing for a couple of minutes.

To make an orky drone, i would take the top dish part of the drone, and then jam a whole bunch of stuff to it. Rokkets (for propulsion, not shooting), shootas, anything, make it look like if it hit a strong wind, it would fall over and explode. Or just explode for no reason.
