Default Deal! Accept or not?

Hi all,

right now, in my small tau army i got:

Aun Shi
36 FW
1 Hammerhead
12 Kroot
4 Crisis
18 Drone

But i got a friend at school that have some of a great deal for me, he give me his army (not primed and some thing not even glued) for around
200-220$CAN, here what he give me:

6 Crisis
1 Hammerhead
3 FW squad
12 Kroot
3 Pathfinder with railrifle
Aun Shi ( oh no!not another one)<
2 Broadside
6 Stealth

So i ask, will you accept such a great deal even if i will not use some things?Extra things are always cool. I think yes but i ask your opinion before buying because 200$ CAN is all i got.

Thanks for your help.

well, thats a descent amount, the crisis suits and broadsides alone new are 225 plus tax

hmm ballparking that deal at 580ish with aplicable canadian taxes, if its in good condition, then thats a good deal, but u do 36 fire warriors, personally i only play with 24, so ud have 10 suits, and 72 fire warriors, it would give u a descent variation, and planety to play around with, personaly, i think id take it,

If I was in the area you would have lost out! =^.^= Take the offer because it's much better than you can get from GW.

If you can spare the $$$ I'd take it.

The reason is that it costs about the same as the Tau Army Box.. which is about as cheap as you can get GW stuff from GW.. but you get the following extra:

3 more Crisis Suits
3 more stealth Suits
Pathfinders (only 3? no devilfish?)
Broadsides (none in the army box)
2 more FW squads (apparently)


... its not a great deal, but it beats the price GW would charge you. Buuuut its not as cheap as you could find on eBay for the same stuff, only on eBay youre taking a chance.

Well, after looking at some fresh price, i think is a good deal ;D

And no, i take it

Calaban: I don't know wich battlebox you're talking about but you're wrong both way, don't forget there only one crisis in the box and i get two broadside not only one and sure a hammerhead.

Thanks for all though, a list will come soon!

The old battle force comes with 3 Battlesuits. Not the new one.

well, I'm talking about the new army box, that included:
12 Firewarriors+2 drones
16 Kroot
3 Crisis + 6 Drones
1 Commander Crisis + 2 Drones
1 Special Edition Ethereal +1 Shield Drone
3 XV25 Stealth Suits +1 Marker Drone
6 Vespid Stingwings
1 Sniper Spotter +3 Sniper Drones
1 Hammerhead Tank

.... for around $200 US. So, compare that bargain with the deal the guy was offered, and.. minus the new pre release goodies... its still a good deal.
