hello i stopped playing a little after Th ed. came out. i played DA back then and just got my Th ed rule book and codex's space marines and dark angels. from what i see don't have to have the Sm like B4. let me know if I'm wrong. but it seems Sm are looking better to play then my DA are as SM have most if not all the DA special rules but not sure still reading codex's and rule book can i get some help i like DA but have they become the under dogs and better to just play vanilla SM's

Yes, the 5th Edition Space Marine Codex is better than the 4th Edition Dark Angels Codex. You may want to just play Codex until the Dark Angels get a new rulebook (probably in the form of a .pdf like the Blood Angels.).
thank you thats what i was looking for. should i hold on to the Da codex
See, I disagree with HellbirdIV, as I feel all codicies are made to be balanced and equal to each other.
There may be more shiney new options in the new marine codex, however the DA codex is still a viable, usable and competetive when used properly with the 5th ed. rules.
Personally, if you've got both codicies, give them both a shot and see what you prefer, but certainly dont sell off your DA codex simply because its not quite so shiney...
ok ill have to see i was just going to go back to the store where i got it a change it out for some models and what not but i gess i can hold on to it ill list what i have army wise give me just a sec
space marine captain
storm bolter/power sword

Terminator squad 5
4 storm bolter's/heavy flamer/power sword/ 4 power fist
2 tactical squads
8 Bolt Gun/1 Plasma Cannon/1 chain sword/ 1 plasma pistol
a storm bolter
the 2 tactical squads are the dark angels tactical squad that GW used to sell can find them now

oh and i have not painted them except for one of the tactical squads
Seriously dude, take the time to read the forum rules. Take the time to proofread and don't double post.
DA have been reduced to Codex: Deathwing essentially. The best thing it offers is the Ravenwing/Deathwing synergy and scoring Terminators, otherwise the SM Codex has the same stuff for cheaper, with more options and units on top of it. From a competitive standpoint there's no debate, Doublewing or SM Codex.
