Default Targetting Array

Hello, I have just purchased a Tau army last week and I am trying to find out how I should model targetting arrays on my Crisis Suits. There are plenty of pictures for all of the other support gear in my codex but there are no pictures of targetting array. If anyone would like to help me out with what they look like it would really advance the cause of the greater good. I have some SoB's and SM's that need a few plasma rifle shots to the head... >

What I'm planning on doing is adding another antenna to the head.

Well, the codex states that I must represent all support systems on the battlesuit so I basically just glued on a multi tracker and a target lock to make the "array" and I'm just going to claim that it is a targeting array.

Also is it possible to simply purchase shield drones or the bits to convert gun drones to shield drones? I can't find them anywhere and they don't come with my Shas'O/Els so any info on that would be awesome too. Thanks.

I'd just take the Drone disk, add the little waist thingy(that the carbines attache to) and then glue a shield generator to the bottom of it. Call it good.

As far as the Shield Drones go, I just have the main disc by itself and added a second antennae. If they didn't have a gun or anything I figured there would be no mistaking them. There's also a hell of alot of stuff you can do with cut up pulse carbines from gun drones converted to shield drones.

I just use a multi-tracker and cut off the antenae, so I can say it is a slick looking multi-tracker, or a targetting array.

Get the the technical drones from forgeworld and say they are targetting arrays for the suits. It is actually legal to do it as the model doesn't confer any other wounds or bonus' to the suits and it can't be used to measure for assault or shooting. ;D

I added an internal targetting computer, advanced friend or foe aqquisition computer amongst other things.

They are all internal - no one is silly enough to put your advanced computers on easily shootable areas, not even the Tau.
