    New Command Squad Kit

    I was wondering what exact weapons and arms are that come with the new all plastic (assume, please tell me if not) command squad. Does anyone have a link with a picture of the sprues or else, can anyone tell me what weapon options I can give them with the sprue by itself?

    Thanks.

    Try the GW site. http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefr...028&orignav=10

    [EDIT] Or maybe you want Marneus Calgar's command squad.

    Thank you for your answers but I was actually wondering what I could arm them with. The links only show the general bolter marine sprues. I would like to know if I could arm all of them with bp/ccw or other options. Also how many assault or heavy weapons come with the set.

    You get a company champion (not Ultramarines honour guard though he looks like one!) He can be used with all chapters not just ultramarines.

    You get enough bolters for all plus a flamer, a melta gun and a plasma gun - You also get a veterans bolter which has more decoration on it. There are also a couple of pistols and swords/chain swords.

    I just go mine today so it's fresh in my memory!

    (also just seen the new Termies - very nice although the barrels on the assault cannon are small and will be difficult to pin vice. :mad:

    I personally like the old termies. They looked like they embodied the tactical dreadnought armor. The new armor they wear isn't heavy enough looking armor. :mad:

    They look a bit flimsier, but are they any larger than the previous incarnation?



    Their masks remind me of angry hippo's

    Thanks Burni. So I guess they just added the special weapons sprue that they have in the new tactical squads as well as a few ccw/bp sprues. Thanks. They must have an additional sprue thought with the storm shield on it don't they? Did anyone ever see pics of these sprues?

    There is actually a special sprue with the Command Squad's specialist equipment. It includes most of the stuff you need to get it assembled, but if you want some different stuff like a heavy bolter you'll have to look somewhere else. I'll provide a link to the sprue.

    EDIT: What I did to view it was download it and opened it as a .JPEG file and zoomed in on specific parts.
