Default Tau Battleforce box

I'm doing an inventory check here. I got the tau battleforce box and I've been putting together the models, but I just realized, I can't make a Hammerhead.

I'm not certain if I missplaced the sprue, or if I was suppose to get it at all.

No it does not come with it. You can order it for 7 Usd in a bits order I think. You were not supposed to get it at all.

Oh good. Sorry to spam the page but I didn't know where else to go. Feel kinda retarded to be honest.

it's okay. We all do stupid stuff on occasion.

The battleforce is supposed to come with a devilfish, to highlight the Tau mobility, not a hammerhead. If you want one, get a sky ray box, because it gives you everything to make either tank.

Cheers!

As above, it only comes with the parts to make a Devilfish. A Hammerhead needs an extra sprue that has the turret pieces, weapon drones, and the targeting array that goes on the front chin turret.

See the link in my sig for more on making a modular Devilfish/Hammerhead =)

I love it when somebody points out a good idea, perfectly obvious, that I haven't been able to think of! I've got 3 vehicle chassis, but only 1 hammerhead and 1 skyray turret. I've been wondering if it's worth buying another skyray kit so I can field 2 of the same tank, but all I really need is the turret. Any idea how much shipping charge they'd hit me with for a sprue or two like that?

Maybe your local store does collective orders; it`s much cheaper that way.

But, second of all - seeing that you have "only" three Tau tanks: Are you sure you don`t need/want more? Of course, it depends on your playstyle, but I`m having six tanks at the moment, and I`m still doubting this is enough
If you`re thinking about going Mech, another Skyray box could be worth it...

Cheers,

That's probably what I'll do eventually. I play 1500 point battles at my local shop, and my current list uses all 3 vehicles (1 Fury Fish, one Pathfinder Fish, and 1 Ionhead). If I go up to 2000 I could definitely see needing another vehicle of some kind.
