Default Skyray question

Has anyone bought a Skyray box from Gamesworkshop or some other local retailer within the LAST MONTH?

I'm wondering if they are still including the Dfish/HH sprue's, as well as the Ray. I plan on buying another HH, but if the Skyray box comes with all the needed parts, then I'll just get that instead and magnetize them all so I have more options.

Thanks in advance!

I purchased a skyray model approx 3 months ago if that is any help, furthermore the Armored interdiction force box set (two HH and a ray) came with pieces for 3 HH that was recent as well.hope that helps.

The skyray always has, always will and always MUST come with the hammerhead sprue as well.

The reason is the skyray is equipped with either burst cannons or Smart Missile systems, which can only be found on the hammerhead sprue. It was cheaper for GW to simply throw out more of their pre exisiting sprues than making a new mould.

Yeah, the Sky-Ray kit needs the Hammerhead sprue. Not only does it use Burst Cannons or an SMS like the Hammerhead, but the "nose turret" part as well. As Falstead already noted, its just cheaper for GW to include the entire Hammerhead sprue instead of a sprue with just those parts.

Only thing the Sky-Ray kit doesn't include that the Hammerhead kit does is a pair of Gun Drones.

Fantastic. Thank you all for the insightful replies, I will soon be buying the skyray.

And not-having drones is not big deal; I can simply slide any 2 of my 20 odd drones in if need be (when its a devilfish) but for a HH or skyray it'll be taking SMS anyhow.

Once again, thank you.
