Default Is there a marker light on a spru some where?

Hey, I'm new to Tau and need some help.

I want to give my fire warriors and stealth teams markerlights but do not know how to represent it on my models. Is there something available on the standard sprus? What do you do?

I just take a Drone antenna from the Drone sprue and glue it on top of the FW weapon - presto, instant Markerlight!

Welcome to the Greater Good, Shas`El!

Cheers,

Thanks, would that be the same for fire warriors and stealth suits?

What is the best way to make sheild drones?

Shield drones can be made by getting a gundrone head, and attaching a shield generator where the weapon connector usually is. You'll need two gun drone sprues for the double antennae, if you use anteanae on your drones.

Oh yeah, I know the one. So I guess I should cut off the square connection peg from underneath and glue it on so the domes of the drone head and shield gen are facing away from each other and then drill a hole in the bottom of the sheild gen so it can go onto a flying base? Is that correct?

I think there are four ariels on the stealth suit spru so I will use the spare one to be my team leaders markerlight.

Look at metal Pathfinder models. See their Pulse Carbines? The item on top of their Pulse Carbines is a markerlight, and its suprisingly similar-looking to the Photon Grenade Launcher attached to the standard plastic Pulse Carbine.

If you want to equip a Fire Warrior with a Markerlight, simply snip this part off of one of your spare Pulse Carbines, and glue it on top of the model's gun. (whether it be pulse rifle or carbine).
