Default Tau box set discussion

hey guys,

lurking on the internets i have had trouble in finding any sites that explicity describe the contents of any box set. because the american site no longer provides images of what you get in side each box i thought it would be good if this site started to make a post collection that describes exactly what you get in each box.

personally i would like to know what you actually get in the tau missile defence box. the GW site describes the box as having 2 sky rays and one devil fish but i was wondering whether the boxs' contents is actually 2 sky ray boxs (you know, the one that comes with, sky ray, hammerhead, and devilfish) or does it only come with enough sprues to make what GW describes??

thanks for your help.

Part of the Skyray is on the Hammerhead sprue. It'd be cheaper to ship the hammerhead then create a new sprue mould.
So, at a guess I'd agree with Steck.
But if you really want the hammerheads, isn't there a box set with Hammerheads?

There used to be but it's not around anymore : It had, if memory serves, 2 Hammers and a Skyray... or was it a Devilfish... it also cost 50

When it came out, I spoke to the manager of my local GW store. They didn't have it in stock (as it was a web order only), but he agreed to give me 2 Skyrays and a Devilfish for the same price. I then bargained with him, and he let me exchange my Devilfish for a squad of Fire Warriors!
