I am about to buy a 1k Space Marine army from my friend for very cheap, but before I buy I want to know something about the Dark Angels. Since they are the army I plan on playing, I would like to know a very basic(as to not violate any regulations against posting rules) rundown of the DA army, and what actually seperates them from other space marines.
They differ as they get the Ravenwing and Deathwing.
Ravenwing being an all biker / speeder army and Deathwing being an all terminator army.
Their strength lies in combining both and getting first turn deepstrikers from their fast moving bikers.
Much must be risked in war.

Also, don't DA get Mortis Dreadnaughts?

Dark Angels also have the combat squads ability so tactical squads can also divide into two seperate five man scoring units at the start of the game, and the get some powerful characters. Sammael is the master of the ravenwing and he has the last jetbike of the imperium which has a plasma cannon and he has both the admantine mantle and iron halo so he is one of the coolest characters in the game. However other than characters, deathwing, ravenwing, and an updated codex they're not that different than a regular marine army.

if im am not mistaken all marines will soon be able to do this.. i have my book in front of me and it says that... quote the ability for a ten man tac squad, assault, and devastator and even scout squads to split down into two 5 man squads is a real advantage........end quote.. page 249
and if you look hes talking about ultras.. and just space marines in general so.. MY& CRIMSON FISTS WILL BE ABLE TO DO IT TOO!!!! YAY!! lol
