Tau Drone conversions:

Post#1 » May 28 2006 02:28

Drones are versatile, they can be used as support (gundrones), safety (sheild drones), sniping (Sniper Drones), and spotting (marker drone). All are handy and CHEAP. Heres a my idea for a drone squad:

Bomb drone!: This gun drone is equipped with a customised failsafe detonator that is programmed to go off when it is engaged in CC or when it is shot down. Only one in three can have the detonator.

Can anyone think of anymore uses for a drone?
It can be funny, novel, usefull, useless, for combat or for housework!
Just curious to what you can think of!!

Coffeetable drone - *rests drink on head*

General-purpose shopping drones - basically just carry stuff.

Painting drone - God, I wish. PAINT MY TAU, DRONE!

Drone surfing. It's like skateboarding but 50% (means nobody will die!) safer! For double the fun, just tow it behind a Piranha!

Why stop there?

Refridgerator drone - Never have to leave the couch in the middle of the game ever again. All you do is call it over, get whatever you want out of it, and you're set. Optionally, you can program it to go to the grocery store and stock itself.

Secretary Drone - answers calls, does the bookkeeping and accountancy, takes dictations and fixes job-related dates.

Party Drone - chats up girls I´m interested in and brings drinks. Can, if desired, attack the DJ with a taser if he plays the wrong songs and then take over, playing only music I like.
