Does anyone know what the new Dark Angels codex should look like?
Will it be done similar to the Black Templars Codex?

It is due early next year... I guess you'll have to wait untill then to see. But I expect it to be similar in setup.

All talk about will be similat to BT, IÂ´d like will be the miniatures inspires in the draws.
This is already pretty much certain, but the DA codex is definatly on its way. All the DA minatures in the Minature Gallery in Warhammer World have been removed and replaced by Black Templars ( . Same for the Eldar, and they did this with Tau whilst the new codex was being produced.
Hive Fleet Fuzzy Bunny: Lots and lots of points of Nids (4000pts+)
The Chapter of the Damned: 5500pts of Dark Angels
The Children of Fulgrim: 5-6000pts of Emperors Children
The Kabal of the Bloodied Claw: 2000pts of Dark Eldar
Local rumor mill has the DA release (and all other specialty chapters to come) to be of the same set up as the BT release. One of those it worked for BT so lets keep the ball rolling.
So what to expect.
-Complete stand alone Codex
-DA Upgrade sprues
-New special character models (I would imagine they are probably going to trim the special charaters down to 2 or 3 seems to be the running theme).
-New veteran robed models
-If we are really lucky a deathwing terminator box that has mixed weapons and assualt weapon sprues (probably not though, more profit for them to make people by seperate sprues and or two complete box sets of each type).
And before I get jumped, this is all GW rumor mill which as we know is 50% accurate. The hard part is figuring out what 50% is true
I'd like to see a Fallen army section in the new codex as well.
I would also like to see this. I was debating whether I would like to see it more in a new Chaos Codex or the new DA codex. I think it belongs in DA 1) because not all Fallen are chaos, and 2) if they keep "Hunt the Fallen" or some updated version, it would make sense to include them so the DA could really Hunt some Fallen!Originally Posted by rodgambit
I hope they include Cypher, too. And how to represent Voice of the Emperor cults. LatD works, but doesn't give a whole wealth of feasible fluff-wise choices. Plus, Fallen should get access to some special equipment that would represent Pre-Heresy stuff, or stuff they've acquired since.
Ahh... new DA... Winter 07, freakin' get here already!

Yeah I cant wait for this new codex and I am a SW player lol. I hope they make it real fluffy, it seems like from now on all of the sm chapters are going to be like the bt codex because it make more sence.
Apparently the codex will be similar to the BT, but I cant wait to see new models, as well as new pics in a codex.
