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

I stare longingly sometimes...

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.

Its not a conversion its the iron hands thunder hammer as stated before, it was on the box art for the assault squad too, sorry chaps nothing to do with a new assault squad, there are a few others like this too, one on the dark angel veterans box too that wasnt in the kit, 3 alternative heads for the ven dread which got taken off the sprue and moved to another space marine kit.

It's not like I wanted to equip my sergeants with hammers, just would have been nice for conversions' sake.

Nuts.

they have removed him now, but if you do a search the old photo pops up for a millisecond with the old commander model then gets replaced with the current one.
I wonder how many pre-orders there were of it before it was noticed :nono:

The Spacemarine Megaforce from 3ish years ago has a Lascannon on the box but does not include any devastators. I am sure that is not the first time.
