first of all are veterans any good and for a shooty army whats the best special skills
second of all on the GW website it says that the veteran boxed set contains tactical and dark angels upgrade and it makes 5 veteran models. so do you use the set to upgrade normal tactical marines to veterans and some terminator extras or does it make 5 veterans and contain upgrade sprues to make tactical squads and terminator squads look like dark angels?
DA veterens cannot take special skills. But they can take a crapload of equipment, including up to 3 powerfists (and they all have the same attacks as a veteren sergeant would). I love them.
They are also the only unit in the DA codex with a variable squad size (5 base, up to 5 extra).
The veteren sprue includes 5 robed Veterens. It also has lots of DA bits (like little orbs). it includes 5 bolters with arms. It also has 2 power weapons, a power fist, 6 DA heads, 6 DA backpacks, a deathwing terminator power sword, a deathwing terminator assault cannon, a deathwing terminator storm bolter, DA helmet wings, a deathwing terminator storm shield, a power armour storm shield, shoulder pads (power armour and terminator, dunno how many deathwing ones), a book and 3 icons that go on backpacks/dreadnoughts. Oh and 2 squad banners, one is deathwing (I think they are both sculpted, I know the deathwing definitely is). Oh and a little open book.
So to answer your question, it has bits for 5 veterens plus termy bits and stuff you can add to tactical squads.
BTW if you want pics let me know.
wow thanks mate, sorry i didnt know DA veterans couldnt take skills i dont have the current DA codex as im waiting up for the new one
k that cleared up some stuff for me cause itd be dissapointing to look inside the box to see only sprues to upgrade my tactical squad to veterans
if its no trouble than pics would be awesome
