Tau: Drones (2 of 3)

Here is the second of my three units of Tau Drones.

Being a bunch of reconditioned models bought for cheap off eBay, these guys needed a bit of work.

If you are keen-eyed, you will spot another home-made Markerlight drone and also a drone with a home-made antenna.

I know many people would find these sorts of hack-jobs aesthetically unsatisfying or just too fussy to actually do, but I've found a few things over my time:

  1. Most people don't notice the hacks unless you point them out,
  2. Doing the hacks is actually quite fun (unless you have hundreds to do),
  3. It saves me a boatload of cash.

Point 1) occasionally makes me wonder if the amount of work we do on our models from one day to the next is even worth it if nobody's looking closely enough to notice them.

Of course it is!
