I like the idea of having an all terminator army and i don't particuarlly like the grey knights as much as i like dark angels, search didn't help me find a dark angels list anywhere! so i thought i'd give it a go
Here is my army list, just got to get some more terminators and a land raider and i'll be there
HQ: Belial; Master of the deathwing
Deathwing termiantors with TH/SS
One apothecary terminator
Deathwing terminators with TH/SS
Land raider (either, put you're input in for which one)
Total = 1000pts
Please comment and you're input would be nice, also this is what i'd play most of the time (1000pts) but for 1500pts what would you have extra?
Sorry i need to bump this back up, i'm going to be spending my money and would like to know if i'm going to be wasting it or not? I don't have infinite money and this alon will cost me about £150 so please, can you comment and give me some input.
Sorry if i have been rude, i do not mean to offend.
I haven't played since the previous codex, so I can't offer any sound advice...
...but what i can tell you is that if you are serious about this army and want to start right away, I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong with purchasing a couple boxes of Terminators to start off with; they are your only option for troops in your Deathwing army, and I assume you like the models/fluff/colour scheme/playstyle of them, so I dont think you would have reason to regret it
Take anything i say with a thousand grains of salt though
"In dedicato imperatum ultra articulo mortis"
Ok, cheers man, i just wanted to know if i was wasting money on an army which i am determined on building, without realising, with my original terminators i recieved i sprayed them green with the rest of my army, only to realise once i did it, they were supposed to be bleached bone coloured! do'h!
So, i need to get some assault termies now, 1 squads worth so i can change my brokenish normal ones, (some have either 1 or no arms...) sounds good then
I would like the DA to get updated though, storm and combat shields dated, the apothecaries aren't as good as they are now, our scouts are a bit nerfed as an elites choice aswell.
Go take a look at the new FAQ - They've got a fair portion of the 5th ed rules for wargear and the like now.
Still it's like a game update, it just fixes things a bit when they get old or out-of-date imo, still i have no say in it, won't need 5th edition to be them with these guys though
If your only playing 4th edition its OK, but i see a serious need for the FAQ's.
I bought DA when they came out in 4th ed and i loved them, ive been disappointed ever since 5th SM codex out that the DA codex got nerfed. However with the latest FAQ, a deathwing army can be very dangerous, 2+ armour, 5++ invul, 3++ Storm shield, and in your command squad they get 4+ FNP. You have a save for everything, combine that with a chapter standard? the 1 that gives you more attacks, and 1 or 2 squads of bikes for teleporters and your in the fight as quick as ever.
Thats just my opinion, DA have been my favourite forever.
Yeah screw the people you play who say they don't like FAQs all it does it keeps it fresh and up to date... just print it of and stick it in your codex somewhere, job done you have th rules with you to back you up God bless Matt Ward for screwign around with the space marines so much that it forced the dark angels to be updated to be a better playable army
anyway i digress, what i think would help would be to make extensive use of thunder hammer storm shields and cyclone launchers, the venerable upgrade costs the same amount as a cyclone launcher so switch that out its always better to have more firepower, i also personally wouldn't take a landraider, 250 pts is enough for another decent termiantor squad with points left over to further upgrade current ones then you get to make better use of deathwing assault
Win Loss Ratios:
GK: 2:1 Daemons: 5:2 SoB: 5:1 CSM: 1:1 IG: 5:2 BA: 3:1 Deathwing: 6:1 Ravenwing: 1:3 DA 3rd Company: 3:1 SM: 3:1 Necrons: 5:1
One change to your proposed list that I would recommend is that you put a cyclone missile launcher on the back of a terminator in each of yout squads. As for what sort of land raider to take...without the cyclones, I'd say a mars pattern, even at 1k points, you need SOME antitank shooting. If you do take the cyclones, take a crusader, so belial's squad can ride in it.
