Default Converted Gun Drone: The Prawn Drone

One night I was just browsing through some randomness here and came across Tael's conversion of a Spider Drone, which looked totally awesome. So after a few drinks, I tried to mimic something similar to it, but came up with something completely off from what he did. I couldn't get any good legs to use, so I added some guns and called it a gun drone. The body kinda looks like a shrimp, hence the Prawn is what I call it for now. SO for further ado, the Prawn Drone:





Comments and Critiques would be appreciated ;D

Nifty. It looks a bit like the Sentinels from the Halo games.

I really like the overal shape and look of this, esp with the Carbines mounted upside down.

How is it made - it looks like parts from
- Multi-tracker
-FW shoulder pad
-Burst cannon
-Target lock
-Pulse Carbines

not sure how it would fly/hover though, but they would look great mounted on vehicles/buildings

Nicely done though

With all of the spare parts I get from Battlesuit sprues, I'm going to have to try this. I love the conversion, very stylistic, even if it wasn't what you were going for.

That's actually a really nice conversion.
Needs a little tidying here and there (mold lines and GS) but a great concept.

I may have to steal it as an observation drone for my cadre

nice, though the carbines look weird. it would look better if you cut off the grenade launchers. if only i could have all my drones like this...

Why hear! ***Pours a shot of whiskey*** Sry mate I'm out of vodka for the day. ;D


***Pours one, drinks it***

But yeh thats some nice conversion! I do like it, but I don't have parts so I can't do it. But that design is a really cool idea. It may give some beginnings to some new conversions. I like the style

Walk Tall
