Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'lle be starting my first Space Marine army shortly and wanted to make it Dark Angels, (since very man and his grandmother has Ultrasmurfs).
Anyway Im kinda stumped on GETTING these actual models.
I went on the GW website and as far as Im conserned it sounds like I do this-
-Buy a regular 10man Ultrasmurfs battleforce then also buy a Dark Angels upgrade kit (Do they sell these in regular GW stores) then assemble them like so.
If this is isnt $105 (Aus) a Bloody dam bit expensive for 10 plastic toy soldiers considering at my corner store I could get 946 of them?
You don't need to buy the upgrade kit for tactical marines, unless you want robes on all your marines right? is that what you want? The robes are just for veterans really, but you can if you like. The regular Dark Angels tactical is the exact same as the space marine tactical box, it comes with dark angels transfers too. You only need that upgrade kit for veterans, maybe deathwing, and a few parts on your way to making your own Belial. Do you have the codex?
Thanks for that helpful comment russyhead.
I've read some of the background about Blood Angels at my friends place today and like them alot more.
A full assault army with a little shooty sounds pretty dam cool.
Even better theres no upgrade kits!
Would I just get some tactical marines paint them red then add some Death Guard or AssaulT Marines and a HQ choice?
There are no upgrade kits yes, but if you want to equip squads with close combat weapons then you're going to have to find a good bits site or just keep buying assault squads. good luck with it all
you can also mix and match stuff from the upgrade boxes to make it spread out across way more than 10 models and it'll all still look good
