Im new to Dark Angles and im also new to table top game. and can any dark angles player tell me if the dark angles are good in close combat.
I'm new to Dark Angels as well, make this post the official Dark Angels New Player thread I to would like to know info if there good n stuff.
Dark Angel terminators are pretty cool for CC, because they can take a mix of stormbolters or lightning claws. All other SM chapters have to take all one or the other.
Otherwise, Dark Angels are simular to vanilla space marines.
All in all, if you want to play an all CC type chapter, I'd go with either space wolves or blood angels. Dark angels are for people who either love terminators, speed, or defensive shooty armies. If I was going to play DA, I'd either go with an all speeder/bike ravenwing army (cause I love the models), or I'd go troop based with lots of plasma weapons. I've tried deathwing all terminator army before and got my butt spanked pretty hard every time.
Jack of all trades, master of none.
dark angels can be very good in cc they have the aforementioned deathwing and any vet srgt can be made stubbornso the squad wont be forced to fall back and they have the sword of secrets

Speed....hehehe...I love Speed...
Contrary to popular belief, DA can be quite effective in combat, especially when counter-assaulting an overrun position.
We get stubborn chatacters, Terminators, and Veteran Sergeants, Deathwing Squads, The Sword of Secrets, Standard of Retribution, more attacks on characters, cheap terminator armor, etc.
Though, the best is a mix of both HtH and shooting. A Few Tactical Squads w/ plasma cannons/lascannons and a few tanks with some hefty assaulty squads mixed works wonders.
And, before I forget, welcome to Librarium Online, Warhammer 40,000, and, most importantly, the Dark Angels

alright cool thanks for the help ill probably buy some elites tommarow and thanks again
Dark angels are good at having to assault AFTER they weaken the enemy with firepower. The dark angels have excellent shooting upgrades and capabilities, and their close combat abilities are just the same as a normal marine. And stubborn rocks
can you not do the same for the black templar, only with a much stronger counter assault? We cant take devastators, but we can take plasma cannonz up the hizzle too ;P
What is the fluff behind that? With DA its the oldest chapter thing, but what is it with BT?
I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my dream. That's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight... razor... and surviving.
