Default Is it a Commander? No

Yesterday me and one of my friends went to the local Games Workshop ('local' is about 30 kilometres away). There I bought a Piranha Team, a XV8 Commander and Codex: Tau Empire. When we got home we set down and started to assembly our newbought figures (my friend had got some Eldars). I started with the three Piranhas, and when they almost were done, my friend opened my Commander and yelled: "For Christ sake!" I asked him what it was, and he showed me the sprues: It wasn't the sprues for a commander, but the sprue for the new Stealth Suits!!!

Has anybody experienced something similar?

SHH!!!

From what I heard - the XV8 Commanders have been 'mispacked' with a XV25 Sprue in there also. That is, 2 months early

It's also apparently a bit of a lucky dip though, some of them have it, some don't.

Might I ask - did you also get the XV8 sprue? or was it replaced by the XV25?

All I got in mine was the regular commander. They seem to be having some issues with packaging in their product system.

My commander and my broadside came to me all in one piece........... I am just wondering but do you have to use a new commander for your shas'o in a game or can you use one of the old ones? (I am having a game soon and i don't think my new commander will be finished by then)

There is nothing stopping you using a regular old commander. You dont have to use the new commander box.

The ONLY place where you can get the new Special Issue wargear, however, is the Commander box.
