    New assault marines box?

    I recently bought an assault marines box with new packaging, instead of the sergeant carrying a power fist and combat shield, it now featured five marines in a row, with the sergeant using a chainsword and plasma pistol. The rear of the box featured a sergeant with a thunder hammer. The thunder hammer was even zoomed in to show its beautiful design.

    Now is this a new assault box? Was it meant to have some new sprue? Since the contents were almost exactly the same as the older box. If it really is meant to have some newer content I will have to figure out how to get replacements. If not, then I suppose I have to get over my disappointment of the (false?) advertising of a thunder hammer for the sergeant.

    Good thing my policy is there are never enough marines so I can assemble them later

    Was it 35$? Were the contents metal? If so, I think you might have picked up the Vanguard Vets box instead of a normal assault marines box.

    Thats happened to me before with Tactical Marines. They forget to pack in the options for the Seargent. I'd just call the help # on their website and they outta fix it up.

    By the way, thanks for posting this. It reminded me to call about the busted Leman Russ I got from them...

    @Grey: Nope, I also have some Vanguard assault marines, so I was pretty hyped when I saw the new box.

    @Djones: So you're confirming that there actually IS a new assault marine box, with a thunder hammer arm sprue?

    Hmm weird, but it very well could be a new box. I'd go to where you bought it and ask!

    I'll try to post it up in a day or two, at work right now and I also have to borrow someone's camera(phone).

    Oh yea, I also sent an e-mail to GW asking about the same thing. I'll keep everyone updated.

    I'm going to GW later today, I'll see if they've got the new ones there while I'm in. Not sure how this could have sneaked past the rumor ninjas though...

    I know you can get a conversion pack on the GW website for thunder hammers and storm shields. it looks like they fit standard marines, not terminators

    It might be these.

    I bought two boxes of Assault marines a week ago. On the front there is the new photograph and on the back it pictures a Thunderhammer, but inside the box were still the old sprues (with the Sergeant featuring a Powerfist and Combat Shield).
