I was torn between Necron and Tau. I went with Necron but I still love the Tau gun drone- or that thing that comes with fire warriors. is it possible to make it into necron piece I Would have to use hose rules wouldn't I?

yeah you would have to use house rules but if you give it a fair stat and have a reason for it being there - i.e to help tomb spyders - then it should be alright. you will still need your opponenet permission to use it though. but i would let you.

hope this helps

Unfortunatly necrons are sooooooo linear (thats why i gave the army up) there would be but one way to add your beloved gun drones to your necron models.... put them on the base... they would probably have to be destroyed ;p but unfortunatly unless you replaced the guns with the gause weps of the necrons and did some REALY big mods... yeah... they would still never be tourny legal... but hey they can still look good crushed in the claws of a Tomb Spider :D, being eaten by scarabs, or fallen under your necron lord :D not that a gun drong with gause weps wouldnt look kewl :D

I suffer from the same problem; I love the gun drone, but I collect GKs. So, if you wanted to convert it, get a drone. Get some Necron Warriors and be willing to give up two guns. Then, file off the hands of the guns, make 'em all nice and shiny, then glue 'em in place of the Carbines on the drone. I dunno, my idea... It also could be done with storm bolters!

welllllllll id have to say if you are gona make them imprompt to scarabs make sure to ither add armor or find a way to sqwish 3 models in that base because scarabs do have mutiple wounds and me personaly would want to some how make sure that is represented... also not to be a dick but scarabs dont get range weps (i sugested maken them just to look kewl cause no matter what they arnt gona be tourney legal anyway ;p tho it sure would be lame if people wont let you play with them for fun :angry: ) sure hope you post a pic of final product ;p

This is sort of related. I bought a Tau Pathfinder Shas'ui which comes with a Gun Drone sprue and Sheild Drone parts. Being the clumsy poop that I am, I lost the gun sections of the drone. So, I improvised. I took the long antennae from the sheild drone and glued them onto the bottom of the drone, where the guns would be. Sorry, no camera = no pictures, but it does look awesome. I'll have my brother, Deciever, post on this thread and confirm its awesomeness.

what if you took te gundrone to let a necron stand on it so that it would become fast attack instead of troop. it would look freaky and I think that the gundrone would be to small to stand one, but i don't know how big a necron trooper is.

necrons could use them as shields not that they need any ;)

that woiuld look sweet :lol: i have no clue how big a gun drone is, so were in the same park ( :huh: ) but i want a gun drone sooo bad to convert into a Necron Gun Drone....maybe glue some scarabs to thwe top, lol, that would be cool if it couldbe used to deploy them..ya know? like you can take one scarab at a time form a tomb spyders sqaud, act like its riding on top, then drop it off anywhere else on the board, as long as you are there...hmm...inspiration....

if i made stats and rules, could i post them? sry, still dunno all teh rules....

Or it could be a heavy support choice, with 2 particle whips! ;) :p

Yeah right and monkeys have feathers and talk in kvantum physics...

The idea you got is good.... the thing is just.... how do you justify a necron warrior riding a drone? Someone has to say: "Ok you can use em"
And what rules should you apply to them?
I like the idea of counting a drone as scarabs, but there ae sertain walls you have to climb here too...
How about making the drone fitted with wraith hands.... lots of them... then just try to mount more than 1 drone on one base... swarm base.
That should justify most things.

a drone swarm! how efficient!! :p ( i like the idea, i might try it with my TAU army ;) tanx)

you could alsow make 4 or 2 drones carie one heavy guass cannon or some other big gun to make them heavy support. ( I don't know why you would make this but it would look good it think)
