I found the URLs for the image for IE10 for Windows 8:

curl --progress-bar -O "https://az412801.vo.msecnd.net/vhd/IEKitV1_Final/VMWare_Fusion/IE10_Win8/IE10.Win8.For.MacVMware.part{1.sfx,2.rar,3.rar}"

I got them from http://www.modern.ie/en-us/virtualization-tools#downloads. I will send a pull request when I get a chance.

I fixed the IE10 URLs in my own fork. It can be seen at https://gist.github.com/mikez302/6540125. I would make a pull request but it seems like there is no way to make a pull request from a Gist.
