really like the Remora models but cannot justify buying the full size (40K scale) models. However I have noticed the Epic scale models and I am considering using them as the Drone squad I use as protection for my Shas'El.
I like the idea of minutarised Bodyguard Gun Drones, has anyone seen these models in real life? and would they be of to small a scale to use?. They would be used as ordinary Gun Drones but I just like the idea of a specialised Bodyguard Drone and I think the smaller scale seems to suit the role. As I think the standard Gun Drone would be to unwieldly to actually accompany an Shas'El full time (think about transports and joining other units etc)
I would use them on standard Drone bases and I am wondering if there would be any problems using the stand.
Do you think this sounds a good idea, cos I just love the idea of elite BG Drones.

Edit, I have the idea of small Drones (sort of 1/2 or a 1/3 the size of a normal Drone), really miniturised, so I am interested to know how the scale compares to a normal Drone.

I really like the idea. I have made quite a few drone conversions myself. I am currently working on a all drone pathfinder squad. I have managed to make myself a remora using bits I have. just trying to get the seeker missiles on using magnets so I can remove them. I'll try to post a picture of what I have.

I would like to see what the size comparison is from the AI remora to a normal drone.

I'll post them as soon as I get home and able to take a few pics plus a list of the bits I used. as far as I can remember I use the skyray turret, an ion cannon, SM jump pack, a bit from a rhino top, two stealth suit burst cannons and a few more plus a little plasticard.

Ok, it's a project I worked on several months ago and never completely got finished. This was my first attempt to make them. I need to kind of pull it apart again and reposition things to make it more symmetrical as well. I don't have a stand made yet so its on a stand and a piece of the plastic trees. But without further ado, here ya go.







Fire warriors are for size comparison. Now the real deal forgeworld one.

Ok decent enough model, but 'thread hijack' anyone. I really want advice and details about the epic models, not conversion advice (this would be better of in the conversion forum).
You never see me hijacking threads ;) ;Y ;) he says in an indignant voice

I resent your tone young man ;), seriously though I do like the model and if anyone could post a comparison picture it would be appreciated, even better would be the Epic Remora against an XV8.
