Hi,

Does anyone know if the Devilfish comes with the SMS parts?
The one I got in the Battleforce didn't.

I bought the Sky Ray and made the Hammerhead and was thinking I could buy a Devilfish (cause it's cheaper) and use the Sky Ray parts to turn the Devilfish into a Sky Ray, only I want to add SMS to it.

You have officialy learned 'The Ways of Games Workshop'....congratulations.


I've bought missile pods, put them together and glued them on the Drone parts that come with the Devilfish. Works pretty well, and any non-Tau player wont know the difference.

This time, it's not really GW's fault - the Devilfish Box is still from 3rd Edition, when Devilfish had no access to SMS at all. Only with the 4th Edition Codex the SMS-option was introduced, but both the Hammerhead and the Devilfish set remained the same. Look on the bright side - this is also the reason you get all the parts of the Hammerhead in the Skyray set extra for no additional charge.

Cheers,
-Bone

This is really poor.
If i want to kit out my devilfish with SMS as the codex says you can, i have to spend £8 on the hammerhead weapon sprue. Meaning the GW price for a Devilfish becomes £28!
Why don't they update the devilfish box?
or at least bring out an additional sprue you can buy separately with just the fin tip weapon system holders in it for a reasonable price (not £8!)?

Because a new sprue is very expensive - the molds would need to be specifically carved, which is quite expensive - all that for a minor update? And if they would do that, they would recut the Skyray and the Hammerhead too, meaning that thr sweet deal we're enjoying right now with the Skyray boxes would most likely be gone.

If you want a Devilfish with all the options, simply buy a Skyray, or convert MPs to SMS (or use something else entirely).

Cheers,
-Bone
