Default Assault Marine Sprue Revamp?

Since when did the Assault Marine box come with a Thunder Hammer?! Sneaky. I wonder how many of these little changes have happened...


Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I wonder if it was simply kit-bashed with the Vanguard vet.

Has GW ever falsely advertised bits like this before? I have never seen it happen personally.

Yeah you could buy those thunder hammers with a storm shield in packs of 5 off the g.w site, but as Jac said looks more like the Iron Hand hammer off the upgrade sprue but hopefully they will put one in the sprue soon

I didn't think so Einherjar. Of all the things GW has done, falsely advertising what's in a box isn't one of them I don't think.

It makes sense though, the Tactical squad got revamped and there's more plastic special weapons now than ever before with the new Stern/Vanguard kits so there's bis to go around. All it would take for them is nudging around the way the sprue is cast I feel.

It's a conversion using the old metal Thunder Hammer arm. I was told this after asking the same question at Warhammer World, and the guy explained to me that it was a conversion that they'd forgotten was a conversion. Weird that they've never corrected it though.
