I have a Custom 3rd Founding Chapter from the Dark Angels, and I want to do a 1st
Company army list.
My question is am I right in assuming it can be a Deathwing style list, as in -
Terminators in ALL FOC Slots
only HQ and ELITE Slots
Hopefully, being from DA the Deathwing one is OK to go:w00t:
A clarification is most welcome:yes:
Neither is correct.Terminators in ALL FOC Slots
only HQ and ELITE Slots
A deathwing army may take termintators, as troops, fast attack, heavy support, HQ, and elites.
A Deathwing army must take leaders in termintor armour.
A deathwing army may include dreadnoughts as elite choices.
A Deathing army may include 0-1 landraider crusaiders. It may also take landraiders as heavy support AND/OR transport choices.
I would strongly advise against making an entire company of Death wing Termintors.
This would be at least 1000 dollars for a stripped down version.
A deathwing termintor company would be 100 Terminators, Many dreadnoughts, Many landraiders, and Many HQs, as all HQs for the Dark angels armies, are members of the deathwing.
Such a force on the battle field would easily be 5000 points.
You can always play an army using the Deathwing rules and a non-deathwing paintjob. You can even call them whatever you want.
The thing to remember is that you have to pick exactly one set of rules and use all of those rules and only those rules.
No mixing and matching, or taking bits and leaving other bits of rule-sets.
If you stick to the Deathwing rules, nobody should care how you paint them or what you call them.
Personally, I'd like to eventually have enough terminators to play an all-terminator list. They'd be painted as Ultramarines, but hey--the Ultramarines have a huge chunk of space and a lot of resources. No reason they can't have thirty or forty suits of terminator armour on the field at once.

Its called the counts as rule and Games Workshop activly encourages it. Remember only DA have 100 terminators, codex chapters have 50 terminators and 50 power armored veterans.You can always play an army using the Deathwing rules and a non-deathwing paintjob.

Only DAs, and all DA successors. (anyone using their rules)Its called the counts as rule and Games Workshop activly encourages it. Remember only DA have 100 terminators, codex chapters have 50 terminators and 50 power armored veterans.
Although Theoretically, a DA army could have up to 178 models in termintor armour :w00t:
So if, and only if, you use the DA codex, may you play with Deathwing rules, but you can make whatever fluff you want.
Otherwise your stuck with normal marines.
Most chapters have 10-20 terminator suits.
Ultra marines Might have 30 or so, as they are fairly powerful.
No body rivials DAs or successor DA chapters for equipment.
Note: DAs have 0 veterans.
Been a DA Successor Chapter (3rd Founding - Angels of the Apocalypse) I am good to go with a Deathwing style list.
So, here's a theoretical list to ensure I'm on the right track
2 Choices - 1 Librarian, 1 Chaplain
Command Squad of 4 w/ AC
3 Squads of 6 w/ AC
1 Squad of 6 (L/Claws)
1 Squad of 6 w/ CML
Meet everyones approval?
Keeper of the Dark Fortress
Member of the Inner Circle
Current armies: Deathwing and Grey Knights (I'd have more if my wife would let me)
Thanks for all the feedback.:w00t:
I'll post an Army List shortly for your comments and considerations.
