Default Can the Targeting Array from the Stealth Suits be used on Crisis Suits?

Can the Targeting Array from the Stealth Suits be used on Crisis Suits?
How about the Burst Cannons and Fusion Blaster?
Also does the 'face' I choose for the Stealth Suits matter?
Should I build the drone as per description or hold off until I get other bitz?

Anything else I should know about Stealths before I start gluing?

What targetting array?? The only bits you have is a drone controler and maybe a targetlock.

The weapon could be interchanged, not sure of the look though.

The face doesn't matter.

As for the drones, your choice. Do you want another ugndrone, or a marker drone??

Perhaps it's a Target Lock. It looks like a small version of the Targeting Array that came with the Crisis Suit (Small head-like thing to put on a shoulder). I find it wonderful how GW gives us nothing to go on as to what is what. Just an exclamation mark, not even a list of included parts. Is there a site that has all the Tau bitz with pictures so I don't have to keep asking stupid questions?

I think I'll magnetize the guns for the Stealths (on the top instead of on the side like on the Crisis) The Burst Cannons look different but the Fusion Blaster looks pretty much identical so that kind of cool.

The sprue didn't come with plasma carbines so I'm guessing it's meant to be a marker drone? Also I got it with a Battleforce which has a few gun drones (6?) if I recall correctly. Which brings me to another question: is there a tutorial/discussion of converting gun drones to shield drones? Or at least a detailed picture of a shield drone?

I dont know what targetting array you're talking about. I've never seen any piece of wargear to represent a targetting array for stealth or crisis suits.

I've seen the burst cannon from stealth suits modelled onto the crisis suits. It looked really cool. The fusion blaster seems a little small though.

The face absolutely does not matter.

I'd say just go ahead and assemble the drones. They're pretty cool looking and very distinct on their own.

After some looking around they're both target locks, however the one for the Stealth Suit is considerably smaller. Does size matter?

And the Fusion Blasters fit one over the other in dimension. The only difference is the connection area where the Stealth suit one has a little lip that grips to the Stealth Suit arm.

I'm getting to the drone now. I'm going to start gluing unless someone stops me. Is there anything else I should or could do with this drone?

Also, can anyone help me make sense of these antennae? I get the three that go on the right shoulder of the suits as well as the large one for the drone. One is a gun for the drone. This leaves me with one small one (same size as the aforementioned three) and one Omega one the size of a gun.

One more thing: The R2D2 looking drone thing that can sit on the Suits shoulder instead of the target lock, what is it?

Are you talking about the thing that looks like a Shield when you put it on an arm hard point?

No, it's not the Shield Regen from the crisis suit. It has an albeit small antenna that protrudes from it (gluing it on is required). It's for the Stealth Suit and came on the sprue. Magnetising these tiny things is going to be a _____.

The antenna are all just for show, I think you can put it however you want and sizes do not matter, I think it's assumed as different technology for different units.

Such as the hammer head burst cannon and the battle suit ones. The battle suits have cannons half the sizes but same stats as the ones on tanks. It's also almost the same for hammer head rail gun and the broadside, there is submission on a hammer head but the broadside's railgun still like a 3 of the size.

I think that if you put them on you could call them targeting arrays, well I imagine they look similar. No one is going to get angry at you because there is no model for them anyways. So I guess it doesn't really matter. :-\

OMG 2 posts while I was typing... :P

Oh and the R2 D2 thing I think is a drone controller, I think.

If you have the Tau codex there are examples of every piece that can be on a suit. It's all on page 53, so I wouldn't gleu anything unless you are sure what's what. Not unless you want to pull something off because it was the wrong thing. The thing that comes with the stealths (I'm fairly sure) that isn't with the Crisis sprue is the drone controller.

There pieces of equipment that don't come with the sprue and that you'll have to make yourself. And if you aren't sure about what's what, you could always make a topic with pics of every piece (all in one topic) and ask what it is. This way it could be stickied so every new player knows what piece is what.
