Default question about drones

where can you get drones from? because I would like a couble shield and marker drones, but I dont know what sets come with them. It doesnt seem like Games Workshop sells the drones by themselves, except gun drones so, where can I get them from anyone know?

Gun drones come in the Battleforce, Crisis suit, Fire Team and Devilfish box.

Marker drones only in the XV25 box.

Shield drones now are only with the Pathfinder shas'ui IIRC.

For shield drones, however, I made my own. Took the frisbee, and attached the multi tracker to the bottom sans arial, and put two drone arials on top, making it look like the drone in the codex artwork where the Aun and crisis suits are jumping out the Orca.

I just use the gun drone top with two drone antennas to represent mine.

My subtle diagram disagrees with you.
your "subtle" diagram contains Optimus Prime and Proffessor Farnsworth, it's heresy in it's own right!
Any similarities between your reality and mine are purely coincidental...

I needed a good number of shield drones lately too. I used all the gun drones from the Rapid Insertion Force box and then just bought the shield drone parts from GW Direct (i'm lucky enough to work just around the corner so picked them up on the way home and had them built that evening).

Actually shiled drone comes with the old XV-15 shas'vre and the pathfinder shas'ui.

However if you do not want to buy the tons of pathfinder shas'ui/xv-15 shas'vre just for the drone, why don't you just buy the bits?

I did it 3 time:
- Once I bought the gun drone sprue and the shiled generator, shield drone antenna.
- The second time i bought 2 shield generator and 2 set of antenna and used 2 drone sprue from my rapid insertion set.

i use the normal gun drone, and then stick the shield generator, from the crisis suit sprue, on the bottom, and you can stick two antennas on if you wish but mine always brake so i leave them off

I'm simpler than all you guys. I simply use the regular gun drone, but leave the Carbines off, and carve off the little nubs they're supposed to fit on, and that's it. I'd use two antennas, but then that invariably means I'll have gun drones without antennas at all...
