Default Stealth suit antennae

On the stealth suit sprue there is a large antennae, on the box it is shown on a separate base, can somebody please tell me what it is?



Thanks in advance

It's just a piece of scenery. Doesn't do anything in particular, so you can use it to represent whatever you want.

Hmm I thought maybe a drone controller, but is it legal for it to be on a seperate base?

Didn't we JUST have this discussion?

Yes, it's legal to put it on a seperate base, otherwise I don't think GW would have a picture of it on a seperate base...:P

No, I don't think so. The drone controller is the small little dome thing, the big antennae is more for show I think.

I don't think I'll be using it then, seems rather pointless...

I thought it was supposed to represent that positional relay thing for improving deep strike.

Officialy it is not the positional relay, that is one of the metal bits in the Commander box (Codex p52), but if you want to use it to represent the relay go right ahead. Also you could put it on your Pathfinders devilfish as the marker beacon. Personaly I'm considering useing it as a Stim injector on my Commander, the aerial justfied as a relay to send health status back to base.
