Dark Angel Rumors, Flyer Wave, and New FAQs.



The one thing that is nice about the comment section is that we often start with new rumor sources there. Sometimes they turn into more frequent sources of information, but when I see something that looks interesting, I like to check it and run it by other sources to see how it looks. 

This rumor bit is nice to see, and when checked against other reliable sources I have, I was told  "That wasn't me, but it's accurate. The FAQ is at the end of the month."

So here is what was said that made me look into it.......

Dark Angels will have at least 3 units never seen before, not including special characters. Plus, there is another flyer + FAQ wave coming.

  1. I more just wish the FAQ wave would come out sooner rather than later.

    1. Ditto. Waiting until the end of September for a FAQ is ridiculous. It can't take that long to identify the issues with the rulebook and formulate responses. They DO know what the intent of their own rules was, don't they????

  2. That's funny, because I posted that in the comments section yesterday. It was in response to some troll claiming Dark Angels didn't have or need any new models on the way.

  3. A faq for 6th in general or for da

  5. Pure speculation here, but I can totally see kits for, Deathwing Terminators, some kind of Plasma-oriented tank, a new Ravenwing "chariot" that was rumored, and a new flyer. I guess we can be hopefully and add a Mortis Dread to that list, but I'm doubtful! Anyway, looking foward to he DA list, hopefully the 1st Legion proves why they were first!

    1. can we not even hope for jetbikes?

      Delete
    2. Considering 6th edition didn't advance the story any, and Sammael is still hoarding the small collection of jetbikes available since the Imperium doesn't know how to make them anymore, they shouldn't be hoped for. That said GW is all about ignoring/changing their own fluff when it suits them, so it may happen.

    3. Given the predilection of Dark Angels for plasma weapons, I'd say a plasma cannoned Predator or even Land Raider isn't unreasonable.
      I also think it likely that they'd wait for a full codex update before the release of new vehicles.

      Delete
    4. No offence, but I think a chariot would be a bit silly. Saying that, the Blood Angel elite have bat nipples and Space Pups ride bigger pups :P
      Personally I would love Ravenwing to have a jetbike squad to join Sammael, even of it was limited to the single squad with a max of three, or even a single jetbike as an Elite choice (so max of three solos under 2000pts).
      Surely if Sammael has a 'small collection', he might lend a few to his bestest best mates to hunt the Fallen!

    5. The GW UK site has the deathwing unavailable on their site, and has curiously put DA in with BT, in the codex marines section

      Delete
    6. well spotted, so it has! Perhaps DA and BT have been rolled into the Vanilla Marine codex after ll. Always thought that was a sensible idea. I'd like to see Chaos Daemons and Chaos Space Marines merge too, perhaps even Eldar and Dark Eldar.

      Would make for a considerably faster turnaround of codexes, maybe the allies rule are paving the way for this?

      Delete
    7. I think CSM and daemons will stay separate. They only split with the current codex, remember. Besides, merging the two would make for a massive codex to accommodate for the new CSM units, and all of the current CSM and daemon units.
      The only problem with merging the other codices would be that either the fluff would be squashed to make room for other stuff, or it would be a massive (and therefore expensive) book.

      Delete
    8. Eldar and Dark Eldar, CSM and CD do share a lot of fluff. Mind you, the way the fluff has been last few books I could do with a bit less of it, the recent retcons have made me seriously consider leaving 40K and only playing Gripping Beast's Saga game.

      You are right about CSM and CD units, though the different lesser and greater Dameons could be rolled into single entries the way they were in previous CSM codices.

  7. Where is Chaos Smurf to annoy us with troll thoughts?

    Still, it is all interesting stuff. Thanks Natfka for keeping the loop, er... looped. :@)

    1. It's all about Tau Smurf now...
      This Just Proves That The DA Are Going To Be Folded Into The Tau Codex!

    2. Yep, from now on, if you open up a new Tau Codex, you will find folded up inside a District Attorney.

    3. Well I am Tau DA cospiracist and I am not the same person, I just like to troll our DA anon friend. :)

  8. Personally I'm hoping for Deathwing Devastors and a ravenwing assualt-y unit - equivalent to sag guard and thunderwolf for the DA.

    1. Deathwing devastators would be cool

    2. Did anyone say 'Power Lances' for the former Knights of Caliban? ;)

  9. For how long will Dark Vengeance be available for purchase?

    1. Until 7th edition and it's starter set. It's only the set that contains the chaplain that is ltd.
      On topic, a new DA flyer sounds cool. Be interesting to see how it can be different enough from the talon and raven to warrant another model.

      Delete
    2. it needs an entire new kit because this one will have an angel on it

      Delete
    3. Nah, it'll be a gigantic mechanical flying monstrous creature that looks like a cross between a dreadknight (minus the pilot, unless it's a watcher) and the hooded angel ;D

      Delete
    4. Monstrous Creature sized Watcher in the Dark that shoots Plasma from its sleeves.

      Delete
    5. It's just going to be a hooded storm talon.

  10. Didnt a previous rumor state that we werent getting a flyer, just a zooming landspeeder?

    1. Yes!

      Like/is a Land Speeder Tempest.

      Delete
  11. If they don't do the jetbikes, what if Sammy goes the other way and gets a new land speeder model (zooming?) instead of parting one from the Ravenwing batteforce? If different from his old model, it would qualify as "never seen before" per the rumor.

    Gotta love his "flying land raider" :)
    Wow, it really just sunk in, a ZOOMING land raider that makes your bikes scoring! Now THAT would be fun!

    1. the stormraven pretty much is a flying land raider

    2. But only for BA and GK. Sammy's the closest DA get.

  12. Question:

    With mentioning a flyer wave I wondered if there was any rumours about the daemon flyer?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You mean the CSM flyer?

      If you think that Daemons need any help in the flier department, you need to have a brain check up

      Delete
    2. Daemons were rumoured to be getting a flyer.

      That's why I asked.

      Delete
    3. @Inconsiderate Anon: Daemons have no fliers. Evidently you are indeed in need of a brain check up. Flying Monstrous Creatures are not fliers.
      Anyway, a daemon engine flier would be cool. Maybe it will be available to both CSM and Daemons, as it would certainly fit with both.
      Actually, if the daemon flier was the dragon in the CSM codex, daemons could take it anyway as an ally.

      Delete
  13. I have it on good authority that the flyer is a modded storm raven that holds a squad of ravenwing and a speeder sticking out the back.

    There is also an open topped landraider and a plasma gun tarantula sentry.

    1. Bullshit. All this DA stuff, where is more chaos info?

      Delete
    2. Choas has already had giant rumor dumps talking about what models and rules to expect as well as when the codex is supposed to drop. There isn't really anything left besides finding out an exact date for the release.

      Delete
    3. Open topped landraider??? What nonsense is this?

      Delete
    4. The flyer that deploys Ravenwing was something I theorized and people called me crazy. If it happens I will be vindicated!

      Delete
    5. Bikes have received the Very Bulky USR in the FAQ.
      I don't see why the Ravenwing couldn't use the modded Stormraven. Just wondering now if the teleport homers can be measured from the hull/base... that'd be awesome.

      Delete
  14. Even if sammeal doesn't get a new model I can see his land speeder getting a lot of rules changes. Mainly to chariot so he can fight in combat.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Other than giving us an exact amount of hull points for his speeder there doesn't need to be anymore rules changes to it. He has his jetbike if you want to use him in close combat.

      Delete
    2. his speeder has been taken away.

      Delete
    3. Blasphemy! You sir are clearly Fallen!

      Delete
  15. "Blasphemy!" was referring to "taking away his speeder".

    Where are the Interrogators blast it!?

    1. Ive heard this a couple times now. However, still needing something a little bigger.

    2. It's still available on the Australian site, although the Ravenwing Battleforce will take 6-8 weeks. Honestly no idea if that means anything, jsut though it was interesting.
