Default Plastic weapons teams

Having been out of the hobby for almost three years now, I was browsing around my local store when I noticed that heavy weapons teams are now sold in plastics as boxes. My question is what weapons come in the box. I need to replace several peices in my army, and the box says it comes with enough peices to make one team. But at the same time, could I make on team, then have enough extras left over to make another kind. i.e. could I make a lascannon team, then put a missle launcher on one of m other extra guys, or make a lascannon, then an extra heavy bolter?

Thanks

In terms of weapons, you get:

3 Heavy Bolters.
3 Missile Launchers.
3 Lascannons.
3 Autocannons.
3 Mortars.
3 "Type A" Stands, used for Heavy Bolters, Lascannons and Autocannons.
3 "Type B" Stands, used for Mortars and Missile Launchers.
3 Large bases.

Now, here are some tips of my own:

With some simple converting, the "Type B" stand can be used for almost any weapon (Heavy Bolters look good on the Bipod Mount). However, you will need to use standing legs from an Infantry Boxed Set.

Missile Launchers look fine without a stand. Models without one, however, look best when either standing, or holding the gun in a "safe" position (eg: lowered to load).

You get small piles of sandbags in the box. With a bit of green stuff, these can replace a stand (and it looks very good, especially for a cityfighting army).

I was talking about the boxed set. I assume that it's only one of each of those for the single. I think you were refering to the platoon. So I imagen that I would only get one of each weapon in the small box

I was referring to the larger of the two boxed sets, which gives you enough for 3 weapon teams (and a lot of spares...). The small boxes give set of everything I listed, rather than 3.

Look for the Economising with You Army thread (40k General Thread) , first post gives you ideas on how you can make 9 Heavy Weapon Teams from 30 Dollar Box Set and what to do with the spare weapons.

Yeah I'm pimping my own topic.
