New Edition New Intro set?

Postby Chugosh » Sun Mar 04, 2012 6:56 pm

So I hear buzz about a 6th edition of the rules coming for 40k. Is that going to mean they will be making a new intro set to replace Black Reach?

Its about time GW has paid some attention to the Dark Angels. I can't wait till their new codex come out. I wonder what new stuff they will get.

Well....if they get the Grey Knights treatment.... >_<


Either way, I need to find the current DA codex. Maybe I can use it for my Blood Ravens? Been using Vanilla with them so far.

Only do this of your Blood Ravens only use Terminators supported by bikes or the other way around. Otherwise you're better off with the vanilla codex.
Army: W/D/L
Black Legion: 28/5/11
Hive Fleet Nidhöggr: 15/0/5
Kabal of the Black Moon: 11/1/2
Grey Knights: 2/0/1
Dark Angels: 3/0/3
Legion of Everblight: 14/0/4

Just my personal oppinion, but it seems that the Vanilla codex is the appropriate one to use since it is there that they are mentioned.
That said, it is unknown which legion they come from.

I feel Blood Ravens suit the blood angels codex quite well. I know they try to distance their style from them but still. Else I believe imperial armour makes them cool.

I wager the marine megaforce units will feature in the new DA codex, so they will get the storm. Then termies and bikes will still be strong as ever, whilst I slightly hope they still have limited options in their codex, it the way it fits their fluff.

I really hope the new starter set isn't Chaos Marines and Dark Angels. Do we really need 2 power armor armies in one starter box? Tyranids, Tau or one of the Eldar would be a better 2nd army in my opinion.

Now THAT would be an interesting starter set.

The 6th edition starter set has gone from Sisters vs. Chaos, to Eldar vs. Chaos, to the current front runner Chaos vs. Dark Angels. The difference with this one is that some of the proposed models have also "leaked" to include cultists/traitor guard and a new plastic chaos dreadnought. As with all rumors take it with a healthy dose of salt.

Sisters vs. Chaos

Oh god yes!
Eldar vs. Chaos

I'm pretty alright with this.
Chaos vs. Dark Angels

No thanks you. As Eillas said, there's too much power armour in their to make it interesting. I understand that SM are GW's favourite army, but I think that Chaos Marines (along with traitor guards, daemons and everything) can easily do the job of "the power armour" army.
