Only if Forge World rules are allowed - in regular games they are not permitted.

I'm not sure what you are asking. Can you use the models in official play as drones? Or can you use the actual figures in official play?

If you're not talking tournaments, then just ask the guys you play with if it's cool. There shouldn't be a problem, and if there is just show them the stats.

Uh, I think you shouldn't try to touch type :P

Regarding the original question, Probably not, I think Heavy Gun drones work as a squad themselves, not replacing other drones. However, you'll need to find a copy of Imperial Armour Update 2004, Or contact someone who has it, to find out the specific rules.

Keep in mind that the Heavy Gun Drones are Forge World Models, and so have their own rules that are semi-official (they're official rules from forgeworld, but can't be used in normal games/tournaments etc without opponent/judges consent etc). As a result, Forge World models are usually separate units from the rest of the GW range.

This thread might help > http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=7313.0 < as it briefly discusses heavy gun drones.

as i understand them, even the forge world Hvy gun drones are Sentry drones... you know, Sentries for Raid missions (i think).. not to be confused with Goon Squads in Kill Team

Who do you play with? Official Rogue Trader tournaments usually allow Forge World models. My local shop does, and here are more examples online:

Do a Google search, you'll find a ton; they all say "Imperial Armor is allowed."

The only tournaments which seem to explicitly disallow Forge World models are the Games Workshop Grand Tournaments, of which there are only a handful each year. If someone you play with refuses to allow published FW rules, I would seriously question their sportsmanship; it's a jerk thing to do.

I'm so tired of this myth going around. Can we get Mythbusters on it, or do they need to blow something up first? Any else want to volunteer to find the RTT suggested rules on the GW web site?
