Default The Skyray box

This one is pretty simple.

Does the Skyray kit have both the devilfish, hammerhead AND Skyray sprues in them?

I was thinking that I could just make the tank modular for saving money.

The sky-ray box has everything you need to make any of the tau tanks. So yes, if you were going to make a modular tank that's the one you should get. Even if you don't want the sky-ray, it still comes with eight seeker missiles.

Yes. Definately get the skyray over the hammerhead. Comes with all you need to make a devilfish, hammerhead (rail and ion) and the skyray.

Have a look at the sprues and figure it out for yourself.

worm, are you saying that there actually IS a difference? And, if there really isn't (or at least there isn't a major one that keeps you from making any tank you want), don't you guys go blabbin' around about it! Buy as many as you can while it lasts! Strip them to the bone :P

Its really a great sprue. Very few mould lines...

Well, it's a direct copy of FW Skyray (well, almost). And FW is known to have better quality models than GW...
