a quick question to the Dark angel players (or anyone who just knows )
i would like to aquire some robes for a certain chapter of my Chaos Marines, i like the onese in the following link:
having looked arround a bit it seems they are from the Dark Angels Veteran Marine box? can anyone tell me if the robes are an addition to space marine armor? or are they a replacement to the body section of marines?
for example if i got hold of some would they clip over my existing armor? or would they replace it?
also where is the est place to source the robes? is it this box? are they on a special sprue?
your replays are greatfully recieved!
The replace the body. The models just have the robes on them, there's no way to take it of.

Like Mika said... it's a full body replacement. The body does consist of 2 parts though
- the legs & back torso
- the front torso
for Chaos it makes it a bit difficult I think because you'll only have 1 front torso which is closed up. The others are half open with the chest eagle showing out or a Dark angels symbol up front (which can be shaved off). With some green stuff skill you finish up the front while a chaos torso is showing out for example.
It's one big sprue with 5 bodies and a boatload of DA bits (including some robed heads).
The best and cheapest way to aquire them would be the box. BWbits does sell them one a piece for about 4 USD. The box is 22 and has 5. Though for 2 USD you'd have a load of extra bits. Also, I think picking up a box of DA vets at a local store would be easier then ordering it online.
well just for tooting my horn i used the dark angels vetran box (5) robes for my chosen.
the robes are a whole new body but don't worry.it is the legs and back of the torso. and 2 of the front peices of the robes show the 2 headed eagle so you can do some amazing modeling. if you still have the torso from the vehicle sprue (chainmail hanging down in the front) and the regulaar torso with a large disc belt buckle. they go on the robes awesome and tadaa! Great looking robed chaos, :happy:
remember your army is forever so when building it do research and hand pick each peice you want for each guy ie. i orderd $1.50 shoulder pads for my army. and 2 boxes of dark angel vetrans for robes. an extra sprue of defiler arms at $30 so hes got 4 huge dreadnought claws. andthe extra stuff adds up but at the last tourny with my army only airbrushed and 2 sqauds painted i got many compliments on "when its done it will look great!.......0:
lithium_ghost thats exactly what i plan on doing!! i wanted to give the robes to my chosen! you dont happen to ahve any pic of yours do you?
thanks for all the replys guys its helping alot! seems the best way would probably to buy a box of the vets and go from there then! cheers!
any further replys of ideas and others that have done the same are very welcome!
well i don't have picks .... ishould though i got them on display at a local hobby shop. but just do like said hand desighn each guy from head to base and you wil be pleased when you play them. search for each bit ....... even sketch a couple of guys with different bits oh and for chosen champion take a khorne skull head and shave the frick'n ugly fins of the sides and tadaa you have a awesome skull helmit for your champ. my chosen have 3 melta and 2 plasma but thats cause i don't have anti tank and they are my anti tank.
