Default The SMS components

Anyone know if what box set the SMS components come with? I want to equip my 4 fishes and 2 heads with them. Do they come in every fish box set or only in the HH

They come on the HH sprue, so thier only included with the HH and skyray. You'll need to convert some for your DFs.

Only HH and I order the HH gun sprue from GW to fix mine up, just FYI.

Because the SMS is on the Hammerhead sprue, it will not be possible to order it seperately. They are, however, fairly easy to convert using gun drones, Missile pods, and other bits of unused Crisis suits.

If you look online, at the Online store [not the miniature gallery at gw site, the online store store.us.games-workshop]

Go to the tau section as normal, then selec the hammerhead
then click "See components"

The Hammerhead sprue: Railgun, Ioncannon, Turret part, Target lock Armament drones, 4 missile pods [the sms] and a single burst cannon

You could buy them for $7 bucks and have bazillions of bitz left

I think you can come up with a shorter barrel railgun and somehow attach it to a crisis, then voala! You've got a Broadside! or you can do some cool gun emplacements, drones fit perfectly in the hatch circle, and use the burst cannon and target lock as a sensor array or sort...

You could always just buy the arms from a Broadside, and simple chop the arm part off. You then only have SMS left! Glue them to a top of a gun drone and voila! I don't know if it's cheaper than the HH sprue though...

To make more SMS you could also try a place called "Battle Wagon Bits". They're online and on Ebay (check their Ebay store - they usually have better deals there). I've dealt with them before and found them to be fair, honest and easy to talk to.
