Default Rapid Insertion Box Q?

About to buy the Rapid Insertion box and was wondering if anyone here bought this already? If so did it come with all 9 Crisis suits, 18 Gun Drones, 3 Stealth Suit and the 1 marker drone?

yep, your lucky if you find one though, dont make them any more
dont kon about the one marker drone, but it is 3 stealthies 9 Crisis and 18 Gun drones, but you can also convert Gun Drones to Shield or Marker Drones Easy

Yes it would contain the Marker Drone as it's basicly 9 Crisis boxes and 1 Stealth box in one package... Each Crisis Suit comes with 2 Gun Drones.

It's a ridiculously good deal. I bought 2 of them. It comes with all the components that you'd get if you bought 9 individual crisis suit boxes and 1 box of stealth suits. Again, a great deal.

I split one with a buddy at the store when they were available. It is the complete contents of the boxes that you would buy separately. So, yes, you do get a marker drone and pile of gun drones.

I found one at a rogue trader in my town and am looking at buying it. I heard though that some of them were missing parts and wanted to check with others who bought them.

Mine was complete.

I bought it to make different team of XV-8 (No magnet) and with the gun drones I had I can now spam my Fast Attack with 3 teams of 8 gun drones...great speed bumps.

I bought one when they first came out and didn't have a problem with missing parts. (I also bought some Broadside bits and converted two of the suits to XV88s.) It's a great deal if you are going to play Tau, saves you a bundle.

I wasn't missing anything in it. In fact, quite the opposite happened, I got 5 extra drones, 12 extra sets of 2 flying stands, an extra small base, 2 extra large bases & 35 extra small flying bases! Attached a pic of them because I'm sad like that.

Hope I haven't raised your hopes too much...
