General Discussion / Re: New detachments and imperial forces 8th edition

You could, for example as I'm planning to do, play an "Imperial" faction battle-forged army which is made up of a Spearhead Detachment comprised of an Astra Militarum tank group backed up with mechanised Space Marine infantry. 

Alternatively, as I understand it only individual detachments must be locked to a single faction.  Ergo you could take a detachment of Chaos Space Marines alongside a seperate detachment of Astra Militarum representing traitor units in the same battle-forged army.

As long as any ONE of the Faction Keywords is the same in every single unit that you bring, that is a Battleforged army.

This is also the trick for Khorne Daemonkin to be able to still play the combination of models they use to be able to use, even if the special rules no longer apply.

Sorry for my very delayed reply to everyone.

Thanks, I've managed to get that book. I was just wondering about other events that have happened around it in other books too.

Thanks for the link, I quite enjoy reading stories of the events which is what I'm looking for.

For anyone who's interested, from what I can tell Traitors hate and Angel's Blade are the only books in that series.

Thanks for everyone who took the time to reply.
The Start Collecting box is the full kits of every thing pictured so you'll get the transfers for the CSM squad and the Terminator Lord.  I don't know if the Helbrute comes with transfers since they were so atrocious previously I never bothered to pick one up outside of the 7th Edition Starter.  They're good units now though so you don't have to worry about that.

You're right that there's lots of room for flexibility.  You have to put some thought into what HQs are going to try to stick to what units, but overall you won't have to worry about a complicated army being complicated to build.  What sort of playstyle were you looking at?

Forge World is expensive and shipping is even more expensive, but it's no more difficult than ordering something foreign off eBay.  Play groups might do some mass orders from time to time, to avoid shipping costs, so check local Facebook groups or stores to see how the people in your area get Forge World.  Remember though that Forge World is optional.  Most people make do with the transfers included in the boxes.

Thank you, yes i completely forgot to add the +3 points for being a battle forged army. Would actually be 7 cp. 3 for battle forged, 3 for my battalion and 1 for a spearhead detachment. Nice catch and I feel dumb for not noticing that myself haha.
I actually got a chance to read (a bit of) 8th edition and the Index Chaos book. Overall I like it. It seems pretty simple and straightforward enough, lots of room for flexibility.

I ordered a box of the "start collecting" for the CSM. Do you know if that set comes with those stencils/decals?

I just checked out Forgeworld and wow they have got some awesome stuff. I heard that ordering from the USA is difficult is that true?

You're army might have some problems with horde and deepstriking armies, other than that it looks like it can handle well enough against elite armies
Discussion: THE LIST / 8th Edition Dark Angels LETS DO THIS
« Last post by Nightwing7x on June 20, 2017, 09:51:20 AM »
Hello everyone so I am every happy with this edition and the balance between everything from what I have seen. Now the list I have is predominantly Greenwing, as that is what I played last edition and am currently working on getting more Ravenwing and Deathwing. In this edition Greenwing is not all that great as we can no longer overwatch using our full BS. Ravenwing and Deathwing are what works best for Dark Angels right now as they have all the special rules and such.

Moving onto the actual list it is as follows:

Battalion Detachment:


Azrael: 180

Librarian: 93
force sword: 12


2x Tactical Squads: 130
2x combi plasmas: 30
2x plasma guns: 26

Scout Squad: 55
5x camo cloaks: 15
5x snipers: 20


2x Razorbacks: 130
2x twinlinked lascannons: 100


Ravenwing Dark Talon: 180
2x hurricane bolters: 8

Well the overall strategy with the list is to have the Dark Talon fly in and disrupt enemy support squads, then drop a stasis bomb on heavy/hard to remove squads. The Razorbacks will have the tac squads with a character attached to each, they will push in with Azrael's leading the charge as his has a 4++ thanks to the lions helm. Then the tac squads will get right into the face of the enemy and push into their lines firing off shots of plasma, las and bolt. All the while the Librarian is destroying the minds of the enemy nearby and buffing his brothers. Then charging the enemy with swords aloft and deliver the final blow. The Razorbacks lascannons will also be targeting enemy armor as they have twin lascannons, again Azrael's will do most of the heavy lifting as his rerolls failed to hits, because chapter master. Finally the scouts will hang back and pick off priority targets and characters with their snipers.

Please any constructive criticism is welcomed.
