Default New Flamer Gun Drone

Ok with the idea of all my crayfish in my head and working on them this idea hit me for the regular gun drone.
Mounting the flamer on an arm like I did with my Crayfish.
Then putting the jets back on behind that.

You keep the pulse carbines and pick up the flamer for the added support the fire warriors need.

So I did it.
again its night photo sucks but what do you think?

I think this could be enough to make Captain Icarus collect Tau... :

Ok heres my Underslung Flamer for my Gun Drone.

So you can see which you like better over the top or under slung.




And here they are together so you can study them better.


Well what do you say?
Over or under?

Shouldn't be better to mount only one weapon syastem on one drone as you can use on;y one weapon per turn and the drone will be less expensive. Drones are for simple tasks battlesuits are for versatility.

I thing that best would be to have drone with flamer instead of carabines.

Well that's easy, just give the thing the option of having a Multitracker, like the Crisis Suits...

Thanks guys but think of it most things will be out of range so use the carbines then when in range us only the flamer.

I have made the normal flamer drone which I removed the carbines and added the flamer.

So this time I wanted more.

Ya 6 more points for a flamer is worth it.

So thats cool.
Burn and then hth.

I am ok with it and it should be fun to try.

But thanks for the feedback and I like it so keep it coming.

Thanks.
