Coming back to 40k after a long absence - first Flames of War and then increased work/family commitments. I used to post here in the 2000s under the name Captain Banjo.
Anyway, with that out of the way, I’m getting into Dark Angels as they were my first army. I was curious as to whether this would be a fun list to play against. My mate runs a BA heavy support detachment with a dev squad, Baal, LR and some DC.
Post-chapter approved 2018
1k Dark Angels
Outrider Detachment - 4cp
Relic: Sword of Secrets
Master in Terminator Armour (Warlord) w/ Relic Blade & Stormbolter = 106
Dreadnought w/ Heavy Plasma Cannon & Missile Launcher = 96
5x Scouts w/ 4x Sniper Rifles & Heavy Bolter = 73
5x Scouts w/ Chainsword, 4x Bolters & Missile Launcher = 75
5x Assault Marines w/ Jump Packs, Power Sword, Eviscerator, 3x Plasma Pistols = 105
3x Black Knights w/ Power Sword & 2x Corvus Hammers = 118
Land Speeder Vengeance w/ Plasma Storm Battery & Assault Cannon = 144
Predator w/ Twin-Lascannon, 2x Heavy Bolters, Hunter-Killer Missile, Stormbolter = 158
5x Devastators w/ Missile Launcher, Heavy Bolter, Lascannon & Cherub = 125
I’ve decided on no primaris as I really believe that they should be an allied detachment for Dark Angels, who trust no one,and I don’t like the tank, inceptors or reivers.
I realise that there’s some less than optimal choices, but I’m not planning on taking it to a tourney anyway.
The feedback I’m after is whether you think this would be fun to play and what wargear I should change? Not looking at swapping units or expanding yet (as I’ve got the list about 50% painted and I want to finish it before moving on.
