Default GW Mobile Assault Cadre BOx - no HQ?

Is there a HQ usable piece in this set? I can't see one... hardly a "complete army"

Hmm.. you are correct there. :huh:

But I suppose they assue that anyone can either get, or has at least one crisis suit. So there is that HQ.

It's not a complete army. But all you need is one crisis suit. Then you have a complete army.

Well, it's not unheard of - after all, the Cadian IG battleforce didn't include a metal Command Squad IIRC. A little irritating perhaps, but most Tau players will have some battlesuits around anyway, it just means you'd have to buy him separately.

I'd advocate buying a XV-88 personally. It comes with all the pieces for a regular XV8 or 88. The only unique things you get in a Commander's box is the head, and a few misc. bits...such as the AFP/CiB.

As stated. If you have 1 XV-8 Crisis suit, you have an HQ, thus a complete army...the commander box only have a couple extra metal pieces which can be done without.

Not that the metal weapons aren't worth it for $5 more. Of course, you can always convert an AFP or CIB, but they're fantastic weapons to have in any case.

True, it really depends on the configuration of the HQ. If you don't use the Special issue wargear then you don't need to Commander obx. if you want ot use them either you convert of spend the extra 5 $
