    dark angels shooty army

    hello all im getting back into 40k and thinking about a dark angels army....my question can they be an effective shooty army....if not is there any chapter that would be better aside from going vanilla? also would it be considered okay if i painted a dark angels styled army (meaning adding the robes and other conversion work.) and ran them as a regular space marine army out of the space marine codex ?

    no opponent would mind if you had cool converted space marines with simple robes and hoods. it would be a nice change.
    PS throw in some Black Templar weapons; they own.

    Dark Angels are really bad if you go deathwind or ravenwing compared to the advantages that you get with SS on the termies and the fact that vanilla marines can take mounted assault so ravenwind is like bad

    So by all means go into a SM army with convertd models

    Yes


    if not is there any chapter that would be better aside from going vanilla?
    Black Templars can have 2 heavy weapons in a 5 man terminator squad whereas all the other chapters can only have one. 3 Terminator sqauds plus some terminator command squads each with 2 heavy weapons could dish out a lot of firepower. I wouldn't say they were necessarily better but they provide quite a change from the regular marine armies.


    also would it be considered okay if i painted a dark angels styled army (meaning adding the robes and other conversion work.) and ran them as a regular space marine army out of the space marine codex ?
    As long as you informed your opponent before the game it would be fine.
