Default Regular Drones to Sniper Drones

After putting a lot of fire warriors together, I have some free rifles and I just got some drones today. I have also been looking at getting a couple Sniper Drone teams. Here is my thought:

Groove out the bottoms of the drones and trim up the rifles to go underneath. Carve some of those 'fins' on the bottom of the sniper drones from a sprue. Glue the antenae that is typically on the recessed part of the drone onto the back-middle part. Carefully cut the disc above the lens to expose the lens more. Use a combo of devilfish pilot and Fire Warrior legs and some bits for a drone controller/markerlight.

This way, I can make one team now with pieces that I have rather than pop the 30.00 or whatever for the box.

Any thoughts?

That is a great idea. Seems a little hard but a good isea noone the less How are you going to get the markerlight. Also give the spotter a pulse pistol converted how you want it.

I have to rummage through my bits to conjure up a markerlight-thing. I forgot about the pulse pistol, but that will not be too hard.

I'm starting today or tomorrow hopefully. I'll keep posting regarding my progress.

I've done a similar thing with my drones, though I just turned one drone carbine upside down, cut some stuff off it and added a pulse rifle barrel. Looks awesome. I also made spotter or actually two from a firewarrior kneeled down and a plasma rifle from my crisis sprue. I'll try to get some pics on soon.
