Hopefully model questions are allowed on this forum. I couldn't find it posted on the GW website, but the $20 Dark Angels Chapter Upgrade sprue, does it come with just one of the set pictured?

Seems silly for $2 more you can get a full Dark Angels Veterans unit including these upgrades which is why I'm asking.

Plan to combine the Dark Angel bits, some chaos upper torsos, and the maxmini heresy helmets to make my TSon Aspiring Sorcerers and to make obliterator conversions from Terminators .

Just need to find out how many of each I need etc.

If wrong forum, sorry.

According to the redshirts at my local, there is no difference between the kits, and when you buy the veterans, you get all the bits in the chapter upgrade and visaversa. May be different to that in reality, but i can't see any difference. i just see it as a weird double up on their website.

I've heard that the Chapter upgrade kit is 10 x body sprues (ie the robes), whilst having baught several Veteran boxes you get 1 x command sprue, 1 x DA robe body sprue and 1 x other DA vet sprue.

Would think that the Dark Angels one would be two sets of the sprues just like with the Black Templar upgrade kit... But I havent been able to find confirmation on it either.

That's a picture of all the bits mate. :)

Yea, seen the bits. I just found it odd that the $20 Dark Angel kit comes with the same bits as the $22 Dark Angel it, minus the 5 marines you'd get for the $2 more.

I'll just call a GW and see what they say.

You get the terminator stuff as well. I'm pretty sure that's it though.

Unless GW recently changed them, the upgrade kit has 2 full sets of the Dark Angels sprue, while the vet set has 1 DA set + special weapon sprue (no command sprue).
