I was down at my local GW today, trying to get my hands on a couple of Catachan Sentinels to convert up for a LatD Nurgle army, and they only had the Cadian Sentinel.

The Reshirt was trying to tell me that the standard Sentinel comes with a multi-laser, heavy flamer, and chainsaw attachment - the only difference is the Catachan set has a different pilot and some greenery to attach to the cockpit.

Is this a load of poo, or does the standard Sentinel come with these bits? I really want the flamer and chainsaw, and the online store doesn't have the Catachan variant.

from the top of my head it does not have the chainsaw and flamer....however its been a while since I got it and my bits are in a box at a storage shed....so don't quote me on that

The Catachan bitz (Heavy Flamer, Chainsaw arm, etc.) are only available in the standard Sentinel kit, much to my (and, I suppose, your) chagrin. The Cadian and Armageddon Sentinel boxes don't include the Catachan sprue.

...I want my Armoured Chainsaw Sentinels, damn it!

How many were you looking for? You can find some really good deals on a Catachan battleforce if you look around, which has two sentinels and a Russ, plus the extra 20 guys. I think I got mine for like $40. I count the catachans as bloated mutants with firearms, they're bigger than marines! :D

You can buy the catachan parts for 2.50$ at the US store it has those parts youre after on one frame that I assumed only came with the Catachan box.

There used to ba a box with three catachan sentinels inside that had all the parts for three standard sentinels plus 'jungle' sprue with different driver, flamer w/fuel tanks, chainsaw and mesh foliage rooftop.

I've boght one a year and half ago, although not from GW but from retail store. Perhaps you should check with some of them. Some of them may still have stuff that GW had stopped selling yeas ago.

Yes, as Degman says, the flamer, chainsaw attachment, jungle pilot and canopy all come on the same sprue, so for it to come with the first two, and not include the last two would involve loose plastic bits in the box.

In short, he was talking ************.

Just make him open the box...

would they even do that?

It is true that the box labeled Imperial Guard Sentinel comes with the catachan attachments, and the box labeled Cadian Sentinel does not.

PS why would anyone buy the more expensive box with metal bits when you can convert a piece from spare heavy weapons teams? My armageddon pattern sentinels are converted and acctualy look almost the same.

Cadian sentinels do not have the catachan bits, but do have (often mis-moled) extra armour and a new drivers' head, as well as the autocannon.

Most stores do, GW shouldn´t be an exception. The box can be sealed again afterwards if the buyer for some reason doesn´t want it.

Some people just don't do the conversion thing. Not their skill or something they want to spend time on. I don't get that, personally, but they really don't have any interest in it.

Kinda like me and painting :) I want to imagine a paint job and have it be done. :p

sorry for the threadcromancy, but if i get the apocalypse emperor's talons recon group, how many weapons and of which sort will i get? i can't work it out... I'd really like to give all ten of them heavy flamers at some point (i'll magnetise the weapons if i can) but it seems this will not be possible? what weapons come in the steel legion sentinel kit?

I'm pretty sure the Steel Legion kit comes with a Lascannon and Armoured Crew fit-out.
I am hoping that with the Emperor's Talon Recon Group box we will get plenty of armament options so the configs can be to our choices.
I want to field ALL the Emperor's specialist formations -
Fist, Wrath, and Talon - should look pretty damn sweet on the field of battle.
