Really the first rumors of what a Dark Angels codex might really start to look like. These couple bits talk of increased of chaplains and plasma cannon sponsons on tanks.

Please take these with the standard amount of salt.

Next incarnation will see expanded use of chaplains. Rumor is they may be able to be taken in groups and assigned to lead troops, like wolf guard. If solo they stay elite slot, if Interrogator they are hq. Interesting to see if it pans out. No word on if/when Codex might be coming.

Another little very tenuous bit.
Heard this stuff elsewhere before, however coming thru a more trusted source now...
Rumor of plasma cannon sponsons on DA tanks. And a special Plasma main gun predator or vindicator...

  1. Seems a little general to me. DA angels arent really known for their chaplains.

      They certainly are, a large number of their chapter fell to chaos so they kinda take it seriously.

    2. Have you ever really read any of the DA fluff prior to the last wasted opportunity that is the current DA codex? Interrogator Chaplains should have gotten center stage for the DA, not Librarians. (Ezekial is cool, but Asmodai is the man.) Interrogator Chaplains need to make a return to prominence.

  2. "They might have more chaplains. They might not."

    Quality as always, stickmonkey.

  3. Really Anon? Which other Chapter has Interigator Chaplins as well as normal Chaplins? And why do the Dark Angels have so many Chaplins, to ensure the loyal Dark Angels stay loyal and aren't going to fall. On top of their duty to intergate the Fallen.

  7. All very cool if it proves true.

    If true about plasma cannon sponsons and main cannons I will be well tempted to start Dark Angels.

    Not sure what to make of the chaplains though, I'm on the fence with that one. Could be cool, could be meh.
