I found this on warseer
This thread is an updated version of the other "Dark Angels Line Up" thread which had rather dissolved into fluff fights and random speculation. Therefore, this is a new one with a bit of new info.
So, without further ado here is the line up for the new sculpts for the Dark Angels codex and a bit of other information.
The release is currently planned for late 1st/early 2nd quater next year (around April/May time). kurttkrueger mentioned that he was told the DA releases would start in February, so this could be when the Army Set(s) are released.
(cf) - confirmed, or as good as
(tbc) - likely
The codex will definitly be a full size one, similar to the black templars. (cf)
new models -
2 or 3 new HQ models - special characters and new librarian models, 4 poses and a terminator librarian similar to the chaplains for black templars. Remake of Dark angels captain.
Master of the Ravenwing on Jetbike (this is as good as confirmed now, I saw the model yesterday).
Upgrade sprue, similar to the one released for black templars (battleforce, sets of dark angels squads etc. will be splash releases, then will only be available in a pack similar to the black templars chapter upgrade.) (cf)
No Tank Upgrade sprue, but a plastic ravenwing sprue (thanks Brimstone)
Cypher is getting a new model.
Plastic accessories may be included on the troop upgrade sprue to upgrade the new plastic terminators to deathwing, with an extra assault cannon (tbc)
Ravenwing release will include a generic plastic sprue to make Landspeeder Typhoons and Tornados.
A new Drop Pod, Devastators and Vindicator (tbc)
Drop Pod - GW are trying to do it in time for codex dark angels but if not it will be released with a future supplement, probably Apocalypse or similar.
Devastators - I saw those yesterday as well, looking very nice, but i really cant say much else. They are probably going to release a set in a similar style as the current ones, however a few of the Devastator Marines in the concepts may be released as Special Edition minis.
Vindicator - I saw nothing of this, but Brimstone says one has been finished.
2 army deals will be available - 1 Ravenwing and 1 normal Dark Angels (tbc)
There WILL also be some input from ForgeWorld -
FW will be making another set of DA specific doors and a DA dreadnought, so that should stop everyone moaning about the lack of a Tank upgrade sprue .
FW may also be making a number of conversion kits for the Ravenwing.
FW are doing a brass etch for the DA, not too impressed personally.
Rumoured DA codex cover from the GW artwork exhibition, thanks to Footsteps (see attachment).
Deathwing Terminator command squads can have Apothcaries etc. (tbc)
Jetbike will be an upgrade for the commander. He may be able to have a very small bodyguard on jetbikes as well. (tbc)
Can we try and keep this thread centered on the models and rules this time please and not too much (but a bit never hurts ) wild speculation. Thanks all.
I will try and keep this post updated with all new developments.

Since Cypher is getting a new model, is there any word about the Fallen being included in the codex as their own army outside of the normal IG/Chaos way it's done now?
z_man, I don't mean to rain on your parade or anything, but your post is an exact copy of
this one : linky
Which was posted by Destris over at warseer. You get no rep from me because you didn't give credit where credit was due.
The least you could have done is said "hey the guys over at Warseer said....."

Aye, some people would have you done for plagerism if you don't mention the orginal source, espically in exams and such.

Anything further on the rumors of 10 man Tac Squads being able to split up into two 5 man combat squads?
