Default How do you get shield drones?

hey,

i've been looking at what models come with shield drones in the ta force and i can only see the shasvre stealth XV15 leader and shas'ui pathfinder with them. Why can't you get anymore shield drones. I want one with my commander and 1 with my 2 broaddsides in a 1500pt force. is the best way to get them to use shield generators and stick onto gun drones. but then you need an extra antenna whic aren't given

any advice

Quite simply, wait a while. The models will come. I reccomend bitz ordering them, but I'm having trouble with that myself.

I have enough gun drones to pry the guns off one and glue an extra antenna.

When you get a Crisis suit in the box is two drones and a sheild generators. Make a drone and put two of the antenae on one, then jery-rig the sheild generator onto the bottom. That should work. So for every crisis you get you can have a converted sheild drone.

I'd definitely have liked to buy some full drone boxes...

Enough per box to make, say, 6 gun, 2 shield?

convert them. stick a shield generator of a crisis suit onto a drone. drill, or cut a hole in the base, which is the top of the shield, and stick onto a flying base! Or if you cant be bothered, do the shield gen drone thing and just leave it on the suit base. easy to remove!

Glue the "disc" of one drone to the other, and put two antenna's on it.

You DON'T have to put on 2 antenna, I in fact don't put on any antenna on my shield drones. It looks silly, IMO, having 2 bunnies protect my Broadsides.

All the afor mentioned ideas are great I just have one thing to say. Dont give a shield drone to your commander. It removes his IC status and makes him a huge target.

I agree, that's what I do.
If I find myself having to use shiield drones (on cirsis&#39, then I cut the guns off a gun drone, and file the edges. It looks pretty cool IMO.
