So, here's the deal. My FLGS is having a sale on Black Friday, I may be able to get a box of Havocs for cheap. What I'm wondering is - what's in the kit? The GeeDubs site says they have 2 of each heavy weapon, and 1 Reaper Chaincannon, plus some options for the Champion. The sprue pics on the site say it has ONE of each heavy weapon, one Chaincannon and Champion options. Did anyone buy this? Can anyone confirm or deny this? Am I missing something?

The description is correct. 2 of every heavy weapon except for the reaper chaincannon, and the various champion options.

Explain the sprue problem for me, then?

The sprue(s) with the heavy weapons is/are doubled.  The sprue(s) with the chaincannon and champion options is/aren't.

Doesn't check out, there's heavy weapons with the Champion options and the Chaincannon's with the other sprue.

Indeed.  My mistake.  Then there is a 3rd sprue that isn't shown.

 

I remember this discussion coming up when the havocs were first being previewed and folks trying to figure out what was in the kit - at that time it turned out that the kit is as described and we simply weren't seeing one of the sprues.  Hadn't realized that sprue still wasn't being shown.

I guess the question now is does anyone have an unbuilt box of modern Havocs in their backlog so I can see the third sprue?

Isn't the sprue on GW's website? I'm pretty sure it is.

And we're back around to there being a third sprue missing from the site.

There are three different sprues, but two of the sprues are kinda similar. One of the ones with an autocannon has the chaincannon, the other has something else (my sprues are half-used so I can't see what's there on the other).

 

Marshal's numbers are correct for the weapon options. 

 

...and no, nobody of us knows why they have forgotten to put up the third sprue. Perhaps the webpage team thought it was only two since two of them are similar?

Just look for an unboxing video on YouTube

It's two of every heavy weapon option except the chain cannon. A flamer, plasma gun, melta gun, chainsword, powermaul, and a headswap for the champion. The sprues aren't repeats, each member has their own unique head and torso. However even with the extra uniqueness, they still feel copy-paste imho. I picked up 4 boxes and made two lascannon teams with two autocannon teams. I'll pick up the other two boxes later to make 3 of each, but the chaincannons I'll be attaching to my marine squads. If my havocs are in shooting range of anti infantry gunfire, they're gone. However how you build them is up to you, and they are pretty top notch as long as you have target saturation.

If you want the havocs as havocs, sure. But if you really want chain cannons I recommend the FW rotor cannons instead on the mk IV/ Mk III marines as havocs.
