Over on Dakka someone has received a mispacked Termie box with assault marine instructions. Shows the parts and components including the fact they they come with both jump packs and regular backpacks.

He, he, he!

Well, now we know of the stuff that is going to come in the Assault Marines box.

Or, could of this been all on purpose and some sort of publicty stunt?

Doubt it. There is no guarantee that the instructions would find their way onto the internet.

why is the new box listed on the french website?

And it looks like it comes with a right handed Power fist.....

That'll be good if you get normal backpacks as well. What I'm looking forward to in this box is the amount of options - before the only upgrade you got was a plasma pistol.... :eek: :rolleyes:

I like the pointing Lightning claw as well - gotta have a chaos champ now pointing both ways with them! ;)

Looks like by bitz ordering that middle sprue with the legs, and buying the full box set gets you a squad of 5 Non-Jump pack, as well as 5 jump packers. That's what I'll be doing. :D

Same thing happened to me (i.e. got the assault marine instructions with a box of termies). Not sure if it's against forum rules to post them though.

Riiiiiiiight, if there is a misplaced instruction sheet out there that gives a sneek peak of a new figure set then you can pretty much guarantee that it will find its way onto the internet. ;) The only fans I know of more rabid for preveiws than gamers are Star Wars fans.

Well with a left handed powerfist and right handed powerfist you can now make a model that goes...

"The exits to the Drop Pod are there and there, Please keep all your limbs in the vehicle until it has come to a complete stop"

But I am thinking that it would be more interesting to have a Twin Plasma Pisotl Gunfighter...

i more disappointed that the shield is a storm shield rather than a combat shield, as I feel that a Storm Shield is the most useless piece of kit in the SM Armoury, but ho-hum, i'll most likely get a box or 2 do do my 3rd Assault Squad

I have three words to say to that... Power Axe! Joy! :D

On the other hand I've got 8 words for it too. No Seperate jump packs, pain in the ass!
Still, nice options all the same.

the old separate jump packs are still available from mail order, they are used still in blisters

Fair enough, so long as they're not going to be slowly phased out.

Yeap, comes with the new tactical marines also. It's on one of the common sprues that both sets use.

Very nice, pity that i have no need for assault troops in my new Sm army. Looks like i'll have to find a need. Its good to see some more options in there, i like the gunfighter idea with the two pistols.

Despite the inclusion of another whole sprue, and a marked increase in the amount of material in the box, the Assault Squad actually went down $5. :p

Wished they knocked off $5 off in my neck of the woods.

With all the new bits and such I feel dumb for flushing out my 2 full assault squads in my SM company last edition >_<

The storm shield will be aptly cleaned up and turned into a combat shield. It's pretty stupid to lose that a powerfist attack, especially when the sarge has potentially 10 wounds by hiding behind his squad anywho in close combat.

The right hand powerfist is looking nice. It'd prolly look better on a non-running chassis. Combine this right hander with the left hander in the vet box and you have disco marine :D
