Welcome to Librarium Online!
ok my friend is going to start up his Dark Angels army but it seems that they can take termies as troops. is this possible and if so what page can u find it on in the codex?
i think that you are confousd with imperial fists and other wise you can find it on the hq pages and than look at the special rules by olthe charicters or on the terminators page
I think it's the ONLY reason to collect a DA Codex army, and yeah, it's definitely legal. Can be pretty nasty too, but a lack of Melta hurts them. Thing to remember is the rest of the book is 4th Edition, so your PotMS sucks, your Storm Shields suck, your Cyclone Launchers suck, your Drop Pods suck, and Azrael is The Man.
they dont overly suck, they just have to different to the main codex otherwise they would just be made of pure awesomeness,be too good and everyone would take them, as they are they are good for the two variants raven and death wings respecively, but if you want standard tactical marines with a small amount of support from both id just say that the SM dex is the best one for that.
See, Ravenwing armies are one of those things that I desperately want to like and which, on paper, look amazing, but don't really do all that well on the table. Sure, having Land Speeders control objectives is awesome and Sammael is The Man even more than Azrael (AV14 Land Speeder ftw), but the Attack Squadrons are massively expensive and having 20-odd models in a 2000pt game is not a Good Thing.
I bash the DA Codex a lot, but it's one of the ones I hope gets an update sooner rather than later because there's a lot of potential there to do something really cool. I just hope when the update does come, they make Phil Kelly do it
