So i dont know which chapter to play for space wolves or black templars or dark angels.Can you help me to decide.Can you write about their pros and cons.Which chapter do you prefer.
I'm a SW player through and through, but you should check out the stickies at the top of the forum for more guidance. A lot of people have already dont a lot fo work to compare chapters and traits.
Also reaize that SWs are getting a new codex around October.
SW all the way. Better fluff, models and rules... (highly subjective opinion).
And has been said: They get a shiny new codex and toys this october.
Not to forget: the SW loves their ale/beer. Now those BT just seems to serious. (almost close to smurfs (ups heresy)).
SW: NEw codex soon
Black Templars: good in CC but not brilliant at range
Dark Angels: Very unique and stunning looking armies.
Vampire Counts Progress Log [W:2 D:1 L:1]
I forgot about DA:
The codex is lacking some of the nice updates and unit-points from 5.ed SM codex.
Great fluff and models however.
BT: Close Combat
SW: Mid-Close range combat
BT are predominantly CC with their only long range support being tanks and other vehicles. They are the best of the three at CC.
DA are pretty much standard marines with a couple of extras and with older rules so they don't get some of the nice stuff like 3++ Storm Shields.
SW can do well at CC, but are designed more for mid range combat. BT with their vows are better at CC than SW, but SW can also do long range support and are good at taking charges due to their counter attack rule. Also note that as the oldest book out of the three, for the most part SW are the most expensive points-wise but they do currently get a lot of nice goodies from the new SM book.
40K armies: Tyranids (2001), Space Wolves (2008), Sisters of Battle (2011)
