Hey guys!

I found some spare drone parts earlier and I\'ve decided I\'m going to make a droideka out of it. So far it\'s going well:) I\'m having some problem with legs though(bent bits of sprue at the moment), I\'m using the flying base for the base, and they don\'t seem to want to play ball with me anymore.

How I\'ve made it so far:
Cut 7cm of copper wire
Bent wire into rough \'C\' shape
Swore after cutting oneself on wire (not necessary)
Popped out the gun drone body from sprue
Made sure wire fitted into hole where the flying stick normally goes
Put tubing onto wire to thicken it up
Glue drone body onto the bottom of the wire
Put pulse carbines on the top of the \'C\'
Bent bits of sprue to make legs

I\'ll make a better guide on how to build it when I\'ve got a few pics and actually finished it.

The rules would be the same as the normal gun-drones.

I actually started the project because a: I like Star Wars and b: my drones keep breaking in their flying poses. So I decided to make a drone on the ground and thought I may as well convert it in some way.
