Default How many Fish in a box?

I've thought about buying the new tank army box from GW. On the info site they're showing that it easily fits 4 Leman Russ, but do any of you know how many Tau tanks it can fit? I believe that the Tau tank chassis is somewhat larger than the Rhino/Russ chassis or am I wrong?

I can fit three of my tanks into one Devilfish Box. Shouldn't be that hard to fit numerous tanks into the Tank Case.

I would say, you might actually be able to fit 6. Maybe in a different orientation etc (e.g. on their side). As the foam is basically cut up into squares, similar to camera cases, and you can just take out the ones you want to make different shapes etc.

Keep in mind that you can pull the engines off of the Devilfish and Hammerheads and store them seperately.* That saves quite a lot of space, I find.

I bought a tank case a few weeks ago. I got 2 Hammerheads & 2 Devilfish in a box, I placed them in there normally. I like the idea of putting theem in there on there side though ( great idea [mace]). I'll give that a try with my second tank case.

That's how you can potentially fit four tanks into one Hammerhead Box

Hmm, i like the idea, but fora person that loves lotsa tanks, I rather buy more tanks than have 1 tank to switch weapons on and of. Love Tanks! Well I don't glue on the Dronecontrolled burstcannons and the SMS, since I want to be able to rotate them. Currently I have 4 Hammerheads and 6 Devilfishes.
Did I mention that I love tanks.

P.S. I really love tanks! ;D

Not too sure how relavant that is (they're asking how many tanks can fit in a tank case..), but, Agreed! See Modular Tanks thread in my sig :P

I don't do this anymore - the nubs that hold the engines on have a habit of breaking off and disappearing.
