In the 5th Ed. Space Marine codex and the 5th Ed. Blood Angel's codex, the profiles for the Captains are identical save for wargear choices. This is understandable as obviously the Angels are different from a standard codex chapter and thus use/have available to them different wargear. There is however one difference that struck me as odd. Ive been playing marines armies since 3rd Ed. and always take Artificer Armor upgrades for my HQ units. In the Space Marine codex, captains can take Artificer Armor for 15 points, however Blood Angels captains do not have this option available to them. Almost every special character in the list has it save for 1 or 2 of them. Am I to assume that Artificier Armor simply isnt available to Blood Angels Captain units or is this a typo on GW's part? Do I revert to the Marine codex for other options or am I forced to choose ONLY from the Angel's codex?
Maybe they only reserve artificer armor for the best of the best? Who knows, they're two different codicies. Probably something to do with game balance as well (heheh. GW.....game balance).
But no, you may not use wargear from the SM codex for Blood Angels.
Heh,i remember asking the same question to my self when the DA dex came out.Its not a mistake,its the 5thed gw rule policy it seems.They reduce the options to the generic H.Qs. and if you want goodies like that must go with the big ones.
Praise be to the Emperor!!
There could be a novel written on the disparities between all the Marine codices.
