I'm thinking of starting a Dark Angels army and already have Codex: SM and Codex: DA.
I was wondering if anyone knew if the new SM 'starter box' to be released v.soon contains the 'new' tactical squads that appear in the GW sneak peaks or are they the old ones?
Also, after reading about drop pods in the codex, I wondered if we'd see a similar situation to the Eldar Wave Serpent. i.e. You can get a Forge World one now but a plastic kit will appear from GW soon? - What does everyone think?
On a more Dark Angels topic - what is the difference between standard terminator models and Deathwing ones? I really like the new plastic terminators but wonder if they will fill a DA role 'correctly'? (fluff wise that is).
And does anyone know if the metal DA shoulder pads will fit the new tactical, devastator etc plastics?
Finally, in Codex: DA it mentions a Dark Angels Green spray paint - is this no longer available? if not, shame as I don't have the steadest hands and that would have really helped me get an army going.
Thanks for your help!
Working from the bottom up:
There used to be a DA green spray (used it once painting my vindicator...I was in a lazy mood), it is no longer available.
Yes, they will fit the standard plastic marine torso/arm as far as I am aware (and it would make no sense for them not to, after all why make them not to fit the DE models?)
The DW ones are metal and have slightly different detailing, being American Indian styled somewhat, with feathers and such. IMO though, painted right, you can just use normal termies, noone will care.
Wouldn't hold my breath on a official GW plastic kit, after all how many years was codex Eldar out before the Wave Serpent became available?
And finally...the new tactical squads? I have no idea, but frankly it won't make any difference, a marine model is a marine model.
well DW termies are also stubborn. You should download the dark angles faq. Dw ain't that good anymore as they are just normal terminators with stubborn and they can't mix assult termy weapons with the the normal Termy weapons.

He was asking 'model wise'.
Yeah, just wondering about the models (I'm very fussy - it takes me days to decide what weapon fit to put on a Rhino!
So, all I need now is a pot of bleached bone and a pack of new termies and I'm away!
Thanks for the help
