Default Make your own Smart Missile System

So, since a devilfish may now take smart missiles, but does not come with them, you may be wondering how you can make your own!

Well, this is how.

I used a gun drone, missile pods from a hammerhead (friend put burst cannons on his) and 2 pulse rifles for each system. The gundrone is filed flat at the bottom, just to get rid of the longer prongs. The rifle is cut so that it fits (took a bit of trial and error, make sure you start long) The little ball on the end of the rifle goes into the hole on the missile pods. It could easily be done with just using 2 missile pods with the first bump on the bottom (the smaller one) filed off and the bottoms glued togeather. Then the inside ball on the pulse rifle would need to be filed smooth.

When done.. it looks a fair bit like this:

Very nice, but this probably should be in the conversion forum.

Very simple and effective, much better than the rather complicated method I used (which incidentally doesn't look quite so nice as yours )

If you haven't been karma'd for that you should be!

I made mine using the HH SMS rig. I used just the underside part, and popped a magnet in. Then I sanded off the top of a drone, magnatized the underside of that as well, and glued that under the nose (where the BC used to be). Now I can use it as an SMS, but can swap it out for other DF wargear. ;D

Awesome idea - I'd started this, but wanted to get the "arm" idea on the sides of the SMS...

I'll do this.
