Dark angels codex?

Postby 0u7law » Thu Mar 29, 2012 6:02 pm

Anyone else notice the sides of there white dwarfs making a dark angel? Or notice with the gw paint update the beginner kit coming with dark angels instead of ultramarines? I'm not one to normally speculate about up coming codices, im happy with my space wolves,blood angels, and grey knights. To be honest any more power armor and I'll go broke from hobby a.d.d and impulse shopping. But if you asked me I'd say this is gw's way of hinting at there next 40k codex.

Quite, since February this has been speculated since people had the 2 WD's. As well the painting kit Dark Angels were also used as one of the example to show what result you could with the new paints can do. Me thinks they will play a large part in the 6th edition launch as one of, if not the first armies to be updated. There are also the rumors about how they may be in the 6th edition boxset.

It's pretty much agreed on that Dark Angles will be the Starter Set Space Marines in 6th. I have seen pictures of the models but cant for the love of me seem to recall where.

Huh... is the insignia shoulder pads "normal" shoulder pads?

Does this mean that you could make vanilla marines out of them if you had spare pauldrons?

no they changed the mold so one arm is off to make it special for dark angels...

also I heard (which I have to think is going to happen) is that dark angels are going to get a white dwarf/pdf codex and the starter set is chaos vs BT

Highly doubt that it will be BT, most of the fingers are pointing to Dark Angles...

Tip, plus that'd be pretty anticlimatic, dark angels on the spine and get treated like sobs (which way do I mean it? You'll never know. :wink: )

Black Templar are next, just saying
dark angels are being used to cover for them right now
