No need to buy, just build it from drone and crisis bits.
Drone top, 2 drone antennas, gun drone bottom with weapon holders cut and a spare crisis shield.
(these parts were almost the one used to make the metal master of the first shield drones)
You can add some tubing on the shield, but the drone is well WYSIWYG without.

They are in boxes with units that can take them (Commander, Crisis Teams, Fire warriors, etc.). You can also buy a separate Tactical Drones box. And of course there's ebay.

Yeha, I see. I've the metal ones, and get a bit particular about having the "right looking" parts. But, I guess there's little difference from 4ft away, that and I'm not about at buy a whole boxset for just an antenna.

Thanks for the tips.

The conversion guide above is really good. Unfortunately, it's only useful if you have some basic drone bodies to work from. I didn't have any, but was able to connect with a local fellow who had a pile kicking around. I still paid him, of course, but it was a lot less than GW's rate. If you're in a similar spot, I suggest contacting the local club, league, etc. and see if you can find your version of The Guy With The Bottomless Bitzbox and see if you can work a deal.

This Fibonacci joke is as bad as the last two you heard combined.
