Default Heavy Weapons

I was looking through my Battle Company boxed set the other day and I could not find the Tactical Squad heavy weapons (Plasma Cannon, Multi Melta, Lascannon...). Maybe I didn't look thoroughly enough, but I just wanted to ask if there is a heavy weapons sprue in the Tactical Squad boxed set.

Tactical Squads don't come with a heavy weapons sprue. The Tactical Squad upgrades sprue has a missile launcher on it, but that's it. The Battle Company box did come with four boxes' worth of Devastators (to make two full squads, even though you can only have four heavy weapons per squad) so you should have thirty-two heavy weapons-- enough to arm your squads however you like.

Well that's not right. IIRC, apart from the dev sprues for the dev squads themselves, there should be 6 missile launchers. I'm sure the setup was 6 flamers and 6 missile launchers for the tac squads, as well as the dev sprues.

If you're really sure there's a problem you should contact GW (or maybe your retailer).

:concerned cyclops:

EDIT: sorry Bobss, didn't mean you weren't right! You are - the flamers and missile launchers really should be there, and so should the dev sprues!

The Tactical Sprue comes with a missile launcher, a flamer, a plasma rifle, and a meltagun. But you do get extra Devastator sprues in the Battle Company box, like I said-- you should have plenty of extra heavy weapons. I'd call 'em up and tell them you didn't get all your Devastator sprues if you can't find lots of heavy weapons in the box.

you only get a missile launcher in the tactical box, if you want any others you then have to buy them in a blister.

That pisses me off. If in the codex it says that tac squads can have Heavy Weapons (Lascannon, Multi Melta, Plasma Cannon) why dont they put it on the sprue?

...because then they'd never sell any 'devastator squad' boxes, because everone would make them up from tac squad spares? On the other hand, they'd also sell fewer tac squad boxes, because people would say "A 50% price hike for some heavy weapons I'm not going to use? **** you, Games Workshop".

That's my guess anyway.
