I recently got a really good deal on a pre-owned tau lot/army and I've been stripping and repainting them and this is what I've got done so far it's not pretty looking or as good/awesome what most of yall have donewith your model's. also sorry for the bad photo quality and lighting and I'm currently working on a hammerhead.
I got what i wanted done for my hammerhead (the skyray and ion cannon parts are only primed) I like how it mostly came out minus the windshield I tried to use Guilliman blue (glaze) but it didn't workout the way i wanted it to, i was trying to give it a reflective look and also I bought his second hand and it's missing it's main drone's does anyone have any idea how i could replace them?
As far as replacing the drones goes, we do tend to come across many in our kits. Gun drones come with nearly everything. If you find you want to run more gun drones than you can assemble with what you have, ebay is a pretty good source for extras. Snagging some cheap crisis suits can be worth it just to grab 6 more drones.
I use the missile drones that came with my broadsides for SMS on my hammerheads. My tanks are ebay buys and only came with their gun drones.
I've never bothered to run burst cannons. The extra couple of points for something that can survive the death of the tank, and help grab objectives is totally worth it. If I did want to fab something up I'd probably stick a crisis burst cannon to the underside of a drone body
Okay thanks for the insight and yeah I was thinking of taking one of my drone heads and slapping a crisis brust cannon underneath or attempt to 3d print some for the hammerhead and for missle ones I'm assuming it's just the normal missle drones you get in kits you use, not the hammerhead specific looking ones.
