Default Unsure about WYSIWYG with Fire Warriors.

so a couple quick questions on building the models (i've been working on 2 squads of fire warriors lately). are there any pieces of the models that denote:

- markerlight
- hard-wired drone controller

really, anything other than grenades and carbines?

i didn't want to have to undo alot of work and then end up with slightly cruddy models because plastic has already melted, etc.

anyway, thanks for all the help.

Hard-Wired drone controllers do not need to be represented, though there is an arm with a little thing with two antenna in it that serves the purpose well.

For markerlights, I cut off the photon greande launcher of a carbine and sling it under a pulse rifle.

good idea.

also, only the sha'sui are allowed to take the markerlight, right?

I did about the same thing, except I used to grenade launcher to replace the normal pulse rifle targetting scope. It looks like a bigger, more advancer targetter - pretty sweet, actually.

That is correct. The shas'la get a Pulse Rifle or Carbine, choice of grenades (EMP and/or Photon), and that's it. Pretty boring, really, but they are called a "basic troop choice" for a reason. =)

For an easy markerlight conversion, if you're willing to spend a coupla bucks, use a pathfinder arm.

As far as I'm concerned, anything that looks like it has a lense and is painted the color of optics (normally red for the Tau) can be a markerlight.

My take on Markerlights is using a Gun Drone antenna on top of a Pulse Rifle/Carbine. Looks great, and easy to identify.

You can basically claim any of the equipment that tau coem with to eb anything. There has been no official decision, so it is ok to use it to represent whatever as logn as you let your opponent know what they have.
