in some of the tidbits is mentioned the following:
"Dark angels are known for their discipline (even guilliman respects says that) need proof? look at the overwatch fire of a battle demi-company!"

and "dark angels are known to attack hard and fast. expect the deathwing to assault on turn 2"

the upcomming WD has(sorry if it isnt 100% translated):
- at the dusk of a new age...
-...we are celebrating warhammer
- new mission: hunt The Fallen

no real leaks yet dear friends. expect them on the following tuesday/wednesday. when i got the book in my hands.

    3. New cover looks great to me

    4. Yeah, Atia mentioned on the B&C but I really don't like this new style of art. Seems they fired the guys behind the great artwork in 6th and start hiring a bunch of new dudes with a really "fan art" style.

    5. That's still Raymond Swanland cover art

      Delete
    6. Pretty sure it's the exact same artist.

      Also, there's nothing "fan art" about it. Fan art is always over-stylized or even anime (as it requires virtually no talent to achieve).

    7. Interesting use of the Company Veterans sprue there! :-P

      When 4th edition models are featured on the cover art of a new codex, that's how you know said models will remain for sale. I wouldn't put it past them to rebox them with 32mm bases and a higher price though.

      Delete
    8. Doogle calling all Fan artists tallent free.

      Raymond swansland is doing Art for a living. He does everything in this styl. One should expect more from someone that gets paid, compared to a Fan working for Free.

      Lets hope the Cover is not the only thing great about this dex.
      SM dex was a huge let down.

    9. does doogle ever back up his opinion with positive merit of his own. all i read is him saying whiner this or no talent there, he is almost as bad as Dark Apostle.....

    10. ^ you don't know me buddy. and your opinion of me is irrelevant.

    11. Haha! Well, this escalated quickly :P

      IMO the 6th ed over is perfect; dark, brooding, grumpy, threatening, "everything's kicked off in the background but you need to be more worried about me because you're seconds from death" kinda vibe.

      The new cover...undeniably a great piece of work; it's detailed, accurately reflects the models (massive shame GW never built anything on the 6E cover), keeps the power weapons subtle as they should be...it's very accurate. But it's too bright IMO and it's more of a "I'm rather quite intense but I can't get into assault" rather than the vibe of the previous cover where the Marine is already in your face and you're in the plops.

      6E - 10/10
      7E - 6/10

      :(

    12. I like it. He looks like he has been caught in the middle of something. With their history, paranoia, and secrecy this look works for me.

      Delete
    13. A Dark Angel caught with his power sword in the cookie jar. Woof! ;)

      Delete
    14. I'm going to be accused of being a grump here but I didn't really like the 6th ed cover that much! Dude looked like a green Chaos marine! =P

      I more meant that the art inside the 6th ed book was outstanding, both the new pics (like the stunning pics for the Libby, Chaplains, Company Masters etc) and the older, recoloured stuff.

      Delete
  2. It does look like a very shiny book! And it appears that we finally have out own COMPLETE set of spells, considering there appears to be some spell cards there.

  3. I think the Demi company will be able to Overwatch at full BS... But that's a guess.

    1. I'd expect something more along the lines of the Skitarii / Cult Mechanicus "Cognis" special rule.

      Delete
    2. BS 2 far more likely. Dire avengers and skitarii got that as recent precedent, plus tau suits with counterfire defence systems.

      Delete
  4. Full BS overwatch?
    Assaulting from reserve?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Rhe dakka Banner is probably just going to grant Full BS overwatch instead of salvo.
      Thats how it was in 2nd. So a huge nerf.

      Assaulting from reserv?
      Maybe RW.?
      Termis DS in turn 1 or 2 as is.
      Dont See them getting assault on Top. With all TH/SS you would be way too OP

      Delete
    2. I hope they dont change the dakka banner except to lower the points cost. Its the only useable banner. The counter attack one sux and the banner of fortitude just cost waaay too much for what you get.
      Im looking at what GW did to the smurfs terminators. Lowered the price which is good but then for no good reason at all jack up the cost of THSS, which is stupid. Like somehow 5pts for THSS was just OP so lets double the cost. D D D.
      I hope they at least fixed the DW sergeant options.

      Delete
    3. The reason the THSS cost was doubled was to make them the same price as they were in the old dex. As if 225 was the right price for that loadout but 200 was too expensive for bare bones termies

      Delete
  5. My guess? Deathwing assault on turn 1, they get the current twin-linked shooting bonus. Deathwing Assault on turn 2, they can charge out of deep strike. Just a guess, but I'm hoping they don't get rid of the twin-linked shooting thing.

    1. You would have to DS very close. Risky!!!
      But if it works it too OP. Just TH chainfist all the nasty units and its GG.
      Its just a Bad change.
      No One will want to play that!

      Delete
    2. DS with Belial! No scatter.

      Hoping for DS and charge, but not holding my breath for it. Can anything as powerful as Terminators already do that?

      Also, I would be ok with something Dark Angels being OP. :)

      Delete
    3. If it is DS and deepstrike, I agree that it'd be OP as hell. But when did GW ever care about matters like "balance?" =P

      Hell, if you can DS and charge on turn 2, you could just a couple of Scout squads in Camo cloaks and just keep them going to ground so you don't auto-lose, then on turn 2, BAM, 25 or so Hammernators.

      Delete
    4. Won't happen while Deathwing are so easy to collect and convert from Dark Vengeance. Expect "mid-tier" at best.

      Delete
    5. The prevalence of overwatch combined with the cost of DW and their small numbers, lack of mobility, etc, means this wouldn't be that overpowered. Not in today's game of droppodding grav centurions; non scattering, deep striking wraithguard (with an allied archon); and probably a huge slew of other deathstars people could think of.

      I doubt it would happen, but I actually think it would work pretty well. It is high risk/high reward. Scattering is notoriously unpredictable, but if you land, you could wreck someone's shiny toy (but NOT their army, given that you cannot really spam DW).

      Also, just to state the obvious: something that is high risk cant really be OP. OP in part implies a consistent, reliable damage output. Assaulting with deepstriking termis that might just as easily scatter too far away to do anything/be placed on the other side of the board/be placed in ongoing reserve/be completely wiped out doesn't really strike me as OP

    6. ^ You're making some good points here...

      Won't stop my Tyranid opponent friend from whining though. (Why he hasn't bought half a dozen Tyrannocytes yet, though, mystifies me.)

      Delete
    7. But, combined with Ravenwing...

      Delete
    8. Interrogator, it's probably the cost... ;]

      Delete
    9. Jesus effing Christ guys, you're complaining about 1st turn charge in FREAKING SEVENTH EDITION? you know, where 90% of the game is overpowered shooting? Give the close combat guys a break, please. They're getting shafted enough as is. So what if DA get turn 1 charge? One unit gets om nom nom'ed. Aaaand? How is that any more OP than - say - a unit of 10 sternguard armed to the teeth DSing with a pod and unloading everything to completely cripple a squad? Or even better, a unit of Grav Centurions doing the same in a Fast Attack drop pod? Oh right that's totally fine, isnt it?

      Delete
    10. No, neither of those things are fine imo. Chill the hell out and stop making assumptions dude.

      Delete
  6. Like what it's hinting at with the dark angels, but does anyone else's have the feeling that celebrating warhammer fantasy is just a way to let you know " say good bye to warhammer, it's dead,say hello to AOS."

  7. I did find this cover, I think it's a great alternative:

  9. Nothing. I repeat. NOTHING can beat the Raymond Swanland cover art of the 6th edition Dark Angels codex. Not this one. And technically not even any other Raymond Swanland artworks for any other codexes :D

    1. Oh boy I expect a lot of people going ape shit that they can't take Raven Wing or Death Wing as the primary Formation.

      To them I say: You can take the formations separate, you just lose out on the FOC bonus.

      Delete
    2. Hope, it's only one possibility. There's something about an example how to make a formation in that way..

      Delete
    3. That's exactly what I said, Aurg!

    4. This also can't be the whole thing because there is nothing for black knights or ravenwing command squad.

  11. Deathwing g redemption force is only an HQ and 2 terminator squads now. With optional 0-1 DW command squad, 0-1 DW knights and 0-1 DW venerable dreadnought.

    The core is Demi - company
    1- company master or chaplain
    0-1 command squad
    0-1 company veterans
    3 tactical squads
    1 assault squad
    1 dev squad
    0-1 units of dreadnought

    Lol idk if I should keep going, most have probably already seen the formation leaks.

  12. Bit disappointed that I can't take a Deathwing force with 2 HQs now (inb4 someone says "unbound") but otherwise I'm pretty chuffed with the formations!

    4. You can't take the Inner Circle because the Command entries aren't formations in their own right - no datasheets! They can only be taken when the Core is brought, for us that's the Demi-Comp.

    5. PS - Gard, you can still CAD it like we always have.

  13. There is something strange with the deathwing redemption force's picture in the next WD. Each terminator squad as a Deathwing knight with it. So a sergent, a heavy weapon, 3 stormbolters and a knight.

    1. The Knight may just be used as a TH/SS Terminator? Unless the Mace is now a legit Terminator wargear option?
