Default Questions about customization (specifically Tau) -- tourney legal?

Hi folks,

Someone mentioned that making shield drones was as simple as removing the pulse carbines or even going so far as to sandwich the drone with a Crisis shield generator. I've also wondered if my Carbine-weilding FWs can be turned into Pathfinders.

So my questions (and sorry if I'm emphasizing my newb-ness):
*can* the FWs be converted into Pathfinders?
Are these conversions tourney legal?

Basically, conversions are tournament-legal, as long as it is completely clear what they represent, and there is no danger of confusing them with something else.

i.e. if you`re making your own Shield Drones, use ONLY your own Shield Drones, and make it clear that they have Shield Gens.

Same with the Pathfinders - make sure to represent the Markerlight (I`m using Drone Antennas on the Carbines), model them in dramatic poses, rid them of the Shoulder Guard and the standard Backpack (and give them something else instead), and give them a different paint scheme (i.e. some camo in there) - as long as there is little to no way to confuse them with Friewarriors, you`re fine.

Cheers,
-Bone

I've used both converted FW's -> Pathfinders and Shield Gen. Drones in GW tourney's.
They're legal, as long as they cannot be confused with other unit types in your army, and at least look somewhat similar to the GW version.
