Default Converting sniper team?

Hi all,

I saw the rule for a sniper drone team and i fall in love with them. The only thing that bother me are the price for a special FW and 3 little drone. I saw some topic how to convert the sniper drone very easily but didin't see anything for the spotter. I was looking in my bitz and i saw something thatr could work. You reminber the thing every tau player have alot but none use it? The shield generator? Well, what do you think if you put in the arm of a FW and make his head like he was looking at it. Could it work? If you have any other idea, feel free to help.

Thanks for future help.

use the Tank commander that comes with the DF or HH, he's got binoculars, and a bit of sprew is pretty easy to make int spotting equipment

WTH ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!!!!!!!!!!!
The spotter is one of the coolest tau fws ive ever seen, kinda hard to convert the model itself, but the spotter device is pretty easy to convert...

Some people hate them (like me and him) but some don't, you don't need to yell for this

I don't see how it can be so easy, the device is not like any bitz i have (i though about a drone but i don't think it will work), can you explain more?

The device is akin to the wraithgaurd/lord head. If you can somehow aquire it and use it, then life would be alot easier.

question is he supposed to be interfacing with the drones in that thing.

If so you could make a VR type helm for him with some bitz.

If not disregard my random thought
