Default New Hammerhead kit on ebay?!?

check this link out:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Warhammer-40k-Ta...QQcmdZViewItem

I've never seen this box cover before.... could this be a HH kit thats going to be released after the new codex?? is it a fake (you know, paying $40 for a pretty BOX)?

for that matter, what could be in the new codex about HHs that would be different from the kit we have today? what extra things could I possibly get? If its just another artwork for the old kit, its still cheaper than a normal kit if I want to get a HH (which I do).

Looks fake to me. But Calaban, you have a point there. Those HH could get some nifty stuff.

It just looks like new box art to me. I dont think theres any reason to think there will be new stuff added to the HH sprue.

But if they are new, aren't those new box suppose to be treleased in conjuction with the new codex? That is a semi-fake one in my belief.

The company seemed like the one that had the "new" Kroot Box. It's somewhere on the Rumours board. I forgot if it's fake or not.

..i guess if you look closely at the paint scheme on the HH, it does seem to be the same as the ones in the new codex. The camo "chunks" has sharp edges now, not too sure how to describe it..

If they're gonna change any box art, I vote for the Firewarrior box.

This guy might have gotten it from a distributor, who would regularly get stuff early. Theres no need to release it with the new codex. Store owners just have to run out of the old boxes.

There is new box art for the fire warriors, i have seen it and like every other bit of new tau box art there are tau things blowing up in the background O0

Not sure about the HH but i would assume the box art is getting an update!

Cheers,

TM

The scheme on that hammerhead is the same as the one in the WD that I got today, so It is most likely going to be the new cover art for the hammerhead, now, of to find that firewarrior cover art...
