Default Hammerhead with 2 burst cannons and 2 drones, my (easy) solution

Heres a pic of how i handled the drone mounting problem on hammer heads, quite easy actually, but you lose a little bit of fire-arc

I thought about doing the same thing except:

Placing the two burst cannons either side of that nose mounted sensor or whatever, and filing away the centre of it to make the fit better, as if thats where they were meant to go. So in the end, two semi-cylinders were taken away either side which the cannons nicely fitted into.

Im not very clear on this.

I asked staff at the games workshop about weather i can take drones aswell as my secondary weapon and he said that you cant.

It makes scence to have the drones as well as it is an upgrade.

I suppose ill use them and if he dont like it i will say "why is it in the upgrades then?"

is it definetly ok to do this?

It is totally legal to do this, as because it is an optional upgrade for the Hammerhead, but a manditory upgrade for the Devilfish.

Very true for the current codex,
but no so for the new codex


Gun Drones are no longer listed as an available vehicle upgrade - they are listed as standard equipement for the Devilfish (and replaced if upgraded to SMS), and as one of the Secondary Weapon Systems for Hammerheads/Sky Rays (along with Burst Cannons and SMS).

There was a small hole punched in either flank – one the projectile’s entry point, the other its exit. The tiny munition had passed through the vehicle with such speed that everything within the hull not welded down had been sucked out through the exit hole. Including the crew. We never identified their bodies, for all that remained of them was a red stain upon the ground, extending some twenty metres from the wreck.”
