Yeah, it's all the "new" Dark Angel fans wanting to get the next generation of the 40K super army ;-)

They'll change armies again in 6 months when a new codex is out for someone else! Us long time fans already have pretty much everything we need. (6500 points and counting)

Although, those knights look good - but £35 for 5 termies - maybe not. The Talon looks nice, but £45 - really? I think I can go without . . . . . . .

That's why GF are so good, discount is always welcome! I fall in to the new DA player category but to be fair I had been toying with the idea of starting one for a while and it was the DV models that finally swayed me.

Meh if you game a lot you run out of variety within a codex inc its possible matchups and jump around a bit.. 5th ed alone I played 220+ games,9-12 of them I used a siegewing list, once a ravenwing, twice a horrible DA manilla that put me off opening it again.
I would not classify myself a dark angel monogamous player by a long shot.. but I do look forward to a codex that isn't just 'you can take terminators as troops, librarians suck' ultramarines variant codex. And as I (alone it seems) have been playing through sixth ed fairly solidly I've got about halfway through the lifespan of chaos (need to bring out some flyers some time, need to take it against eldar a few times etc).. I believe my opponents relish me switching it up on them :D
(I referred to codexs like wives, like what I did there? :lol: )

I'm still BA all the way. But if I see nice models from another Chapter, I'm not against converting a few figures ;)

I like the Termies and I may even do a Deathwing list, just in BA colours.
I like the bikes also. I've had a C:SM list in mind a while that involve high numbers of bikes, and these will make some nice model variations.
I really dont like the speeder, but may end up getting one for bits or bashing.
I like the roles of both the Storm Talon and the new DA flyers, but I'm not 100% impressed with the models. Both have conversion potential though. - I like Allies in BA colours, lol

I've been salivating over WD all day at work. But I stand by my earlier comment in the other thread I started that Belial looks like he's about to wet himself.

If there is a specific mono-pose Belial model now, will he still get to chose weapons in the new dex?

Belial with with no TH and SS would suck under the old codex. They may have given him a bit more oomph in this ed if he isn't able to change his loadout.

Well looking on the GW website the have given him an Iron Halo so now he comes with a 2+/4+ save and they've upped his WS to 6. Maybe they've made the Sword of Secrets a Relic Blade and upped its S to 6 as well but we'll just have to wait until next week when the Codex comes out.

I lol at belial, I think they hate him;
No longer needed to unlock termies troops
I1 weapon loadout a poor choice for an HQ.
Was already called captain useless/tax, as was by deathwing players
Rumoured to go up in points.
I hope some super secret thing like the "saga of smashing up all the enemies you could ever be against and smashing face guaranteed on a 1+" or something comes in to balance it out a bit.

(wishlisty what could a termie mega captain/ mini chapter master bring.. orbital bombardments syncing with deathwing assault (there is an apoc formation that does that).. we know he allows the command squad to take TDA but meh they don't score V GK.. makes all TDA have FNP (I'm just trying to be as lazy as GW could be, some fluff does say his TDA is master crafted)He can't step on Smurf TDA leaders rules.. maybe 6th ed he and sammial unlock set warlord traits (Named Chaos HQs do that, its just only huron/abaddon and ahrimans are any good)

Anyone else notice that the Deathwing and Ravenwing bundels save you no money at all?

I never go near pricing subforums, toxic places where people just throw their poo and never actually read anything, but IIRC, certain bundles classified as "spearheads" were designed to not save you any money (since about the end of 4th ed/1st wave demons)..when they started that style of bundle the idea was you got them a few weeks earlier than other types of bundle.. so people desperate to blow their wad on latest shiny got what they needed when, whether other bundles that actually provide a discount still exist is beyond me and up to someone who still actually pays top dollar for stuff.

It's for laziness sake, so people who have 2 mich money to care, can click on 1 item instead of 5 or 6.
