Default BaneBlade Question

Sorry if this has been covered or is in the wrong forum. I did a quick search and did not see my answer.

Does the new Baneblade come with enough side sponsons to field the tank with all four sponsons and all four with the same weapon. IE four sponson of heavy botlers or Four sponsons of heavy flamers?

Thanks

Nope, it comes with one set of sponsons. Also note that there is not an option with the lascannon. The sponsons contain either a set of twin linked heavy bolters or heavy flamers. You can put two sponsons on each side totalling 4 lascannons and 4 twin linked weapons but the second set of sponsons are not provided in the kit.

so the only way to get two sets of sponsons is to buy another and give that one extra side armour instead of sponsons.

You could just bitz order the extra set from BW bits or GW.

I looked on Battle Wagon, but did not see it available. I sent them an emial last night, but they have not had time to respond to me.

Thanks everyone for a quick response.

Yes. I guess you can run the second one as a Hellhammer, so it has high armour all around and can rush forwards.

It doesn't look like you can get the sprues for any of the new sets separately.

I have pictures of all the sprues in the Baneblade box, I'll put them up later on when I get around to writing a thread on constructing it. This was one of the things I was going to mention in it.

Forget it folks. You'll need three sprues out of six to make sponsons. Seperately they'd cost you about 2/3 price of a new BB (even when they'll become available). GW is always smarter.

Actually The War Store emailed a link to the baneblade page.

You can order the parts to make a set of sponsons, however, the price is $40.

It might just be better to buy two and make one 14 armour. That is if the wife allows me to get two.
