Dark Angels or Marines

Post by ussasx » Thu Apr 10, 2014 6:59 am

OK yet another question - Sorry!!

I wanted a rule book and a bike squad for my marines. Seperatley these are £50. My local store knocked me a discount of dark vengeance down to £55.

So although they are a little different i can use the DA bikes in my marines and i have a rulebook, whilst gaining a tonne of other figs.

My question is - Would it be sensible for me to use the DA's as marines and match them up in my howling griffons scheme, or actualy start to collect DA. Im already struggling with learning the game, all the rules, SM codex, Necron Codex and Ork codex so am slightly put off, however the DA do seem quite cool.

Eurgh - what do I do.

My thought process is to keep the howling griffons as primary and a ravenwing allied force?

Ok... Next question...
file them down and make marines - should i make these a different chapter. I plan to utilise more vehicles so i was thinking of taking the troops to beef up the howling griffons, but painting the HQs, Termies and bikes into iron hands.

Having two forces would mean: use ultramraines tactics with HG. Iron hands with vehicles or mix the whole lot together if wanted.

Does anyone think it makes a difference? Im thinking more WYSIWYG stuff?

I wouldn't even bother filling the markings off just make up another chapter name/color scheme then you can call them what you want

Iron Hands successor Chapter 1 week Griffins the next or a DA successor the week after its really up to you coz markings don't affect wisywig
