Hi there,


I was wondering how many sprues are supposed to come with this box http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?prodId=prod1060236? I've opened one in the past and am sure its meant to be 3, but i'm having problems with someone I sold a sealed box to online, who's insisting there are sprue's missing. (he says there should be 4). Warseer is not the right place to talk about the actual dispute, I just want confirmation that there are only meant to be 3 spues in the box. I think he's confused by the instructions that show ways to combine the box with other kits.

DA company Vets box is 3 frames, 2 that make 5 DA troops, and a smaller tactical squad upgrade frame. Plus bases.

There used to be a DA upgrade box which was 4 frames, 2 copies of each, but without bases or the tactical upgrade sprue. That may explain the confusion.

Thanks for the responses, the buyer appears to be a parent, so I'm trying to tread lightly as it would be understandable he is not knowledgeable about the range, I recommended he contact GW CS to put his mind at ease, but he now says he has spoken to them and they say there should be 4 sprues... (I've just rung them up too and they told me 3), I'm open to the idea he's just asked the wrong questions, but its slightly concerning.

As majorwesjansen said - there is probably a confusion between the veteran pack and the veteran upgrade pack.

there is also the ravenwing biker upgrade box/sprue which could cause confusion.

Three sprues, the veteran box contains the tactical marine upgrade sprue and both the DA chapter upgrade frames

Might be worth sending your guy the following link which is an online blog entry reviewing the veteran box from 2011 which makes it clear there are only three frames

Thanks again,


I believe things have been resolved now, I'm still not 100% sure what the complaint was to start with, but he's going to complain to GW now so its no longer my problem :cool:
