Default How to get Shield Drones?

Where can I get the shield drones?

I know there is one or maybe two with Stealth team Leader .
I own a Tau army box - but there are none of them in there.

I looked at the firewarriors box set - no information about shield drones at all...

Cheers

The only way is to either get them in a Stealth or Pathfinder leader blister, or buy them as bitz on the GW website.

I didn'n know that you can get separate parts from GW.

I'm looking forward to order hammerhead turret sprue. To switch between configurations.

That's cool >

same here. infact, with an extra sprue u can use the 3rd burst cannon to modify the front turret so the model as a whole can be used as a devilfish or hammerhead.. awesome stuff :P

I am going for a "buy 1 HH, have 2 DF, field 2 HH 1DF OR 2DF 1HH" plan. Just as soon as I scrounge 40 bucks or find someone in my family that would be willing to listen to me babble about tau long enough to get that I want one, and which one

??? I don't get what you mean.. anyway.. i need at least 2 hammerheads, with 2 turret sprues if possible.. that would leave me with being able to field 2 hh (1 railgun/bc, 1 ic/sms) or two devilfishes, or 1 dfish and 1 hh (with any combo of weapons)

The frontal turret may be a bit pain. Because the mount is fixed. So You can't really change the turret easily, like missile launchers -> to burst cannons

Never buy a devilfish always buy the hammerhead for the extra parts. Same for the land raider and the LRC, pay the extra $5.00 and get the extra goodies.
