    Dark Angel Masters with terminator honours?

    Ok

    Im really confused about this

    Why can't Dark Angel company masters get terminator armour and honours?

    Isn't it slightly unfair that they can't?

    no because terminator armour gives u +1 attack so honors would be kinda like cheating.

    Well, Termi Honours have been removed as the game is going to be more troop based, and sall no longer be an highend IC game as (sometimes) nowadays. So they removed termi honours and +1A from terminator armor as the charakters are good enough with a basic of 4 attacks (remeber the standart bearer choice if you got Belial, 5 LC Marines will have 20 Attacks, 25 at Charge, Belial will have 4 Attacks as standart and 5 in charge). This is a damn hart hitting unit. Let them deepstrike with an apothecarius and a ranged (SB, AC) unit as "meatshield" (you will propably loose one, even you have an apothecarius in the HQ squad) and call them down on a flank (not in front of plasmacannons etc. ), let them shoot. you will suffer counter fire, but i think it will be no problem to survive, even the meatshield troop. You will maybe loose one (remeber the apothecarius) and then, if the CC unit is in CC, you will tear the enemy apart without many porblems). You can put them into a crusader as well.

    No, it does not in the DA list - That +1 attack is on a codex by codex basis, and having scoured the codex from front to back twice in desperation upon realising this they don't. Deathwing terminators have +1 attack included in their statline, as if they had it but the captains do not. (Belial is actually one of the better value choices there, mind)
    This makes DA not that competitive at the moment, however when the standard marine codex is re-released (about end of sept with 5th ed) I'll bet all my clothes that they lose:
    1) Wargear as it is now. upgrades will be in a box next to the codex entry, that'd mean no more terminator honours.
    2) Heavy weapons in less than 10 man squads
    3) Optional squad sizes - it'll be 5 or 10

    Right now the cost comparison between DA and standard marines is just not good - unless you shun lascannons and get heavy bolters.
    Be warned.. when 5th comes out they may be cheap for a reason..

    Terminator Honors is being eliminated from the game.

    So the basic Space Marine will have 1A.

    Veterans will have 2A.

    Captains and officers will have 3A.

    The Chapter Master will have 4A.
