Default Representing Markerlights?

Markerlights, shown on the pathfinders (the thing on top of there gun). The problem is how do u represent them on other models like Stealth Suits/Firewarrior leader?

Side Q: Where do u put the bonding symbol on a Stealth Suit?

The stealth suit team leader model has a markerlight on his gun. As for the bonding symbol, I paint them on the stealth suits guns or on their helmets.

On the Fire Warrior parts sprue, there is an arm holding an auspex-looking scanning device. Since I had no clue at the time about what a markerlight looks like, I cut the device away from the arm and glued it to his belt to represent a markerlight. The idea with the carbines is pretty nifty though, I may switch to that. I saw anothe rmodel somewhere with an antennae-looking thing on the top of their rifle, that looked pretty cool too.

The limited edition Fire Warrior model has a pulse carbine with markerlight as well. According to these models, the markerlight is essentially an extra rectangular "box" on the top of the model's gun, and models with markerlights also always have twin tubing that normally attaches the butt of the gun to the model's body—probably supplying power. For my Gue'vesa'ui with markerlight, I chose the Kasrkin sergeant because of the similarity between kasrkin guns and weapons with attached markerlights.
I've yet to actually finish the model in order to show pictures, but will when I do.

They were also offered with a subscription to White Dwarf in the US. You'd have to use e-bay now to find one though.

I modeled my own from a barrel of carabine granade launcher as sight, then two pieces of wire and the frond end is made from top of spare gun drone antenae. Plus i added two wires which lead to firewarriors helmet so it look connected.

You can look at it here:
