    What's the Chaos Space Marine Attack Squad for?

    It comes with just 5 Marines, but I was just wondering if it came with anything special that set it apart from the normal 10 CSM box.

    I was thinking maybe it included Havoc weapons or special bits like melta bombs; the online store doesn't show the sprue.

    I believe it is a cheap way of getting a few more marines, rather than having to purchase one of the larger box sets. Based on the image on the G.W. site, I'd expect it to come with a plasma gun...maybe a couple more trinkets as well.

    As far as I know the Attack squad is just a sprue with 5 CSM on it. Not even an upgrade sprue. It's like the combat squad box for the loyalist marines.

    I find it strange that a box with even less then half of the stuff costs more then more then half the price. 10 Pounds vs. 18 Pounds.

    Its just a smaller squad, no bonuses. In fact it comes with less neat stuff!

    Watch Out

    !!WARNING!!

    The CSM box set's blurb:

    There is a marked difference there.

    I would personally advise the purchase of the 10 man squad and then selling/trading the rest with your friends.

    Wow, what a crappy deal. Oh well.

    Off topic, but can anyone could point me to an online store that sells OOP CSM? I haven't had too much luck on ebay, and the US GW store doesn't seem to have them for sale.
