Default Rapid insertion force box and the aurora XV8.



Does anyone know if the cyclic Ion blaster is included somewhere in the rapid insertion force box (9 XV8's and 3 stealths + 19 gun drones)

I was hoping to make the aurora pattern XV8 (plasma rifle and cyclic ion blaster.)

I don't really want to bother buying a commander if it's not.. :P

No.

It's a special issue weapon and only available with the commander box.

I know i got the box way back to make cheaper (money wise) crisis suit teams...and have the metric ton of drones.

Drat, I really like the weapon look. I'll either have to convert one or beg at my GW. Does the Shas'o commander from forge world have the CIB as i'm getting him/her.

I like the box a lot- it saves about £55. Not sure about drones so I said £10.

To my knowledge (and I only got the XV-84 from FW) you only get resine and plastic version of the regular weapons...no metal special issue weapons.

look like you need to convert or beg.

Yeah, a redshirt at GW showed me his FW suits and he said that none of the commander's metal stuff comes with them. He had a CIB on a FW suit actually, and it was metal.

Why redsuits- they wear blue in our GW. Logo and all...

There are places where one can order individual bits, like the AFP and CIB. I don't know if it is verboten to mention them or something
