News: Dark Angels Leaked, Models & Codex


Oh my, someone got their White Dwarf way early... Well it's a pretty big leak, with a full spread already circling the internet. Looks like they were originally posted on Dakka Dakka, and these are from the BoLS Lounge, and Faeit.

What Say Ye? -MBG

Dat flyer.
Deathwing knights and atleast 2 of those flyers.

Konrad Sontag said...

That landspeeder thing is atrocious.

Spike Rs said...

Totally. The DerpSpeeder is quite not what I envisioned when I heard about it. At least our flyer looks better with wings than the basic DodoGunner (stormtalon) looks.

Those terminators are INCREDIBLE. Look at those guys! Maces, shields, cloaks, RRRR!

ok I can now start saving to build my Dark Angels chapter it will only take 15-20k to buy all the figs I will need so I should be done sometime in the next 300 years. sigh.

Brent Grolla said...

That is what they should have done with the stormtalon in the first place!

Michel Beaulieu said...

ah man, I'm gonna have to paint faces again :( lol sweat models other wise

obvious photoshop...

I'm sorry, but the Land Speeder is a terrible kit bash-esque model! It is just terrible terrible. Also, poor Belial looks like he needs a wee! The other models look awesome good though!

bits of note in the WD:
Dark Talon: Rift cannnon (no rules sited), hurricane bolters and stasis bomb (one use only, dropped on an enemy for - 3 WS and - 3 I)

Niphilim fighter: heavy bolters, blacksword missiles (no rules sited, but the battle report later in the issue mentions that the fighter is supposed to be good at taking on enemy flyers, so I guess the missiles are for that), avenger mega bolter/lascannon.

Deathwing Command: multiple options incl. apothecary and standard bearer. A "Champion" wielding the "massive halberd of Caliban" is mentioned and there's a picture (no rules sited).

Deathwing Knights: Terminators with WS5, Storm Shields, power mauls and special rules, incl. Hammer of
Wrath and "Smite" which makes them strike at S10 AP2 for one round. BTW both DW terminators and the knights can be fielded in units of 10 now! Oh and the DW can take plasma cannon and they have USR "split fire"!!!!

Land Speeder Vengeance: AC/HB, plasma storm battery (mentioned in the battle report to be able to fire either 3 small blasts or 1 large blast, I'm guessing plasma stats).

Darkshroud: HB/AC, Shrouded USR and conferes Stealth to allies within 12", and it has a rule that gives units +1 to charge distance (as far as I can read - the picture is quite small and hard to read, so perhaps it's plus 1 to something else).

RW Black Knights: plasma talons (instead of bolters, no rules sited, and not being called twin-linked plasma gun/pistols leads me to believe the rules could be a bit different), corvus hammer (no rules sited, but I guess they are power mauls), they also have the option of a RW grenade launcher.

Sammael: pretty much the same as before, as far as I can tell, though with a 4+ (which is confered to the land speeder if he chooses that instead) - can't remember if that's new.

Dreadnaught: has option for dual twin-autocannons, venerable dreadnaught has "DW vehicle" rule
Rules mentioned:

DW knights and black knights have a rule called "Inner Circle" and in the battlereport it is mentioned as giving them some form of re-roll in close combat.

New rule calles DW Vehicle

DW assault rule is mentioned in the battle report as ensuring a DS in turns 1 or 2 with no dice roll needed, decided by the DA player before the game begins.

There are more special rules mentioned but no rules sited.
DW, DW command and knights are in the same box.
RW command and RW black knights are in the same box.

40K just gets more and more absurd, and the models more and more toy-like in appearance. I don't like it. The Storm Talon was a touch goofy, at first, until I had a look at one in the flesh. It's OK. But this new speeder is totally outlandish. Whoever designed it needs to be cudgeled severely. Whoever authorized it for final production needs to be executed. Publicly.

Matthew Myers said...

Yup. I had the same reaction. Pretty sure we're looking at a fictitious spoiler.

Javier Rodriguez said...

Omg..that speeder..hope it looks better in real life than the pics.
When are we going to see some love for the Black Templars..?? =(
