Default Out of Missile Pods, NOW WHAT!?!

Just great, my army list needed 4-6 Missile Pods and now i find out i only get 3!!! My crisis went:

Commander: TL Missile Pod, Plasma Rifle, HW Multi-tracker
Crisis1: TL Plasma Rifles, Flamer
Crisis2: TL Missle Pods, Flamer
(all lone)

What should i do to? Get that extra missile pod or change this list so i don't need it?

Notes: I don't have a Broadside and not planning to.
(If u want to see my full 1000pt list, look at my Army List Post)

If you buy a Hammerhead and plan to use Burst Cannons, you effectively get four Missile Pods (that would normally form the SMS).

Well, I don't know how hardline people are with wysiwyg over there, but here, I just use a single missile pod, and just tell my opponent it's twin linked.

I'm not about to spend about as much money as I did on the crisis suit in the *first place* just to give it super-acurate modeling.

Also, my suits are modular. If I don't field one, I can use it's weapon for twin-linking on the suit I field. Not a perfect solution, but it works.

If I were you, I'd by a crisis suit weapon sprue or two. You can order individual sprues out of the catalog I believe. It's not too expensive and you get other extra weapons. Or, if you really wanted one, you could buy one of the Forge World batllesuits. All of its weapons come in resin, however, it still includes the sprue with all the normal crisis weapons on it. You'd have a cool commander and A few extra guns.

Well, good thinking. But there's no such thing. THe crisis suit comes in only 1 sprue. And buying that would cost more than buying an extra crisis suit (stupid GW : ). If u mean buying the weapons individualy, then the answer to that is no. (GW said they don't) And with forge world, well... god idea, i'll think about that.

u don't think???? Actually, it'll be pretty hard. And won't come as nice. If u can do it, show me a picture, i'll be damned.

I checked and the SMS missile pods are somewhat different. But the handy knife would fix that. Great idea.

I coulda sworn that crisis suits come in more than one sprue. Well, feel free to correct me. And if it is just one sprue, that would be quite expensive. Why did they have to make crisis suits cost $20?

BS can be a great addition as an extra Railgun on the board. Plus it has the extra weapons. Other than that, it is hard to get Missile Pods.

The Tau Battlesuit sprue is one large piece, but they cut it in half to fit it into the smaller box for the Crisis boxed set.* So you are both right.* *
Unfortunately, mail order considers it a single sprue, so you can't buy only half.* The weapons (including the two parts of the burst cannon), are evenly distributed between the two halves.
