If you can't make fun of something, it's probably not worth taking seriously.

You have to love the smell of science in the morning. It smells of learning.... or perhaps a gas leak.

So take a Lone Wolf to make the Deathwing Knight Sergeant a beast?  I'm down for that from a gamer point of view.  From a fluff point of view, being encouraged to take Space Wolves with my Dark Angels infuriates me lol

Well I always liked the globals...

I am happy with it!

I went through my collection and saw that there are decent price drops pretty much across the board, with the only thing getting hit with an increase beings the Land Raider Crusader.

The Stratagems, which are really what make armies in this edition, are all fantastic and fluffy.  Including a squad of 10 Deathwing Terminators to take advantage of the Deathwing Assault stratagem is very tempting, despite it being expensive.

It definitely isn't anything ground shaking, but it makes the Dark Angels viable.  I've already got lists written up for Deathwing, Ravenwing, and a combined arms army.

I am particularly a fan that Sammael on Sableclaw and the Talon Master are both characters that no longer / don't have the caveat that they can still be shot at.

The lesser known Orders that the community page mentioned sounded interesting if along the same general motif.

I noticed this as well.  Incidentally, I was browsing GW's page looking to price some of the models, I didn't see anything that resembled the Talon Master or Sammael on Sabelclaw... how would you go about modeling these?

I'm pretty sure the dark angels landspeeder kit has the parts for Sammy in the kit.

I don't know if there is a specific kit for it that comes with the land speeders, but the Ravenwing Upgrade sprue has the parts needed to make the two models.  Really it is just doubling up on the heavy weapons.
