    Tau map symbols, a little help needed

    Hi all!

    For the Greater Good of all Warhammer players I have recently embarked on a little project creating symbols for making battle report maps. How this is done is described on my webpage http://wh.kanakoto.net/map_general.htm

    Presently, as you see, I am working on the second set: Tau. To complete it, however, I need some little help from any willing Water or Earth caste members:
    • What is the size (in millimetres) of the Devilfish and Hammerhead vehicles (width, length, size of motor gondola, length of gun etc)?
    • What is the diameter of a gun or shield drone (the drone itself, not its base)?
    • Have I left out any other units than the tank and transport?
    • Any other, helpful, comments?
    Thanks in advance!

    A Devilfish chassis is:

    82mm wide at the back
    50mm wide at tightest point in the middle
    102mm wide at the front (measured from the tips of the gun-holders)

    NOTE: The Devilfish chassis is wavy, look in the Codex or at a photo online to get a good visual.

    Each booster is about 20mm wide (so about 122mm wide at back with boosters)

    A Hammerhead's weapons are on a turret 42mm wide. The Railgun is 37mm long, 15 wide, and the main part of the Ion Cannon is 71mm long and 5mm wide.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A drone has a 21mm diameter.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, Shas'O Briguy!

    It will (probably) take a few days until I try to finish the symbol set.

    Any other helpful comments, anyone?

    Well, for two reasons I wont:
    • Primarily, and this is a sufficient reason, it is illegal due to copyright regulations (unless, of course, you use them strictly for private purposes - no publishing on the web etc)
    • I haven't got a scanner... :blush:
    • Most of the GW BatRep pictures are too small to scan well anyway... :p

    Neat. It looks really good so far.
