Errors in Packaging!
Has anyone ever gotten severe, or rather comical errors in packaging? I recently picked up a 5 man squad of Grey Knights to ally with my marines, just to discover a missing pole-arm and one of their heads completely melted (yes.. like a slaggy pile on his shoulders). I took it back to the local GW, where they simply gave me another box and let me keep the old one. I cracked it open, and BAM!
MORE PROBLEMS! It had three normal grey knights, an incinerator grey knight (all good so far), but no Justicar... But it did have his arm. What was it's fifth miniature? A Sister of Battle. The Manager was like... "What. The. Hell." but we called it good. I ultimately got all the parts for a five man squad, plus four... and a bolter bitch.
Just thought this was endlessly funny. Any other weird stories like this? My local manager said he has seen some weird stuff, like a guy buying an ogre battalion for Fantasy and getting a heap load of Imperial Guard out of it. Crazy.
