Most people make them, though you can get a conversion kit from GW here.

Many people just stick two gun drones back to back etc..

It is confusing that the shield drone conversion pack doesn't appear under Tau on the GW website..

EDIT: Fixed link

I stuck the vehicle sheild thing onto the bottom of a gun drone and stuck 2 antenna on, that looks good. (If you want I will try and find a pic)

Otherwise you can find thjem with the:

Commander Shadowsun box;
the pathfinder shas'la blister;
the old Xv-15 shas'vre blister;
one of the older tau battleforce has a special ethereal with 2 shield drones.

or worse case scenario: eBay

I bought the conversion blisters from GW online. Be aware that it is only the metal components to make them, and you still need gun drone plastic parts to complete the drones.

I converted others by sticking a shield generator to the bottom of a gun drone and cutting off the carbines pegs. Then pin-drill a hole in the bottom for the flight stand and youre good to go.

I had to fix that link: http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/ca...questid=210355

Once I found them, I think those parts are pretty cool, I'll have to get some.

Otherwise, what I did for the present was just put some Gun Drones together as normal, except that I cut off the nubs for the carbines and left the guns off. Good models? Not really, but they do serve the purpose.

Huh?

If I edit my post to fix the link, it then changes itself back after i've saved it. :| Even though I can edit the text and it will change.

Correct link, as shown by Timberwolf.. don't know what's going on with my link :|

EDIT: Ah, Did the forum code get modified/upgraded? None of the links i've posted seem to work anymore, but have figured it out now. The forum now appends Http:// to the front of links, which it didn't do before I think?

EDIT2: Or maybe I just suck at using the forum code :P
