1750 Pts – Codex: Dark Angels Roster

HQ: Sammael on Corvex

HQ: Librarian

Force Axe, level 2, bike

: Ravenwing Command Squad x5

Apothecary, Ravenwing grenade launcher

Troops: Scout Squad x5

snipers, cloaks, missile launcher

Troops: Ravenwing bikes x5, 1 attack bike

2 meltaguns, combi-melta, attack bike with multimelta

Allied detachment

HQ: Primaris Psyker

Troops: Infantry Platoon

command squad with 4 grenade launchers in chimera

3x infantry squads with grenade launcher and auto-cannon in chimeras

Fast Attack: Scout Sentinel Squadron


Elite: Psyker Battle Squad

9 psykers + overseer in chimera

Heavy Support: Manticore Battery

Total Roster Cost: 1750

black knights, sammie and the liby go monster/broadside hunting. the ravenwing attack squad goes after vehicles. the primaris psyker goes with the infantry command squad to add 2d6 str 6 shots to their output while the three infantry squads spread out and lay down fire. the psyker battle squad hopefully convinces an enemy to run off the board turn one and otherwise contributes a str 9 blast. the Manticore does manticore stuff and the scouts hide and take targets of opportunity… the scout walker carries a searchlight to light up enemies for the big guns while the rest of the army keeps night fighting bonuses. let me know if you have any questions.

    Are you guys consider this small change to how objectives work

    You score an objective by having more scoring units within 3 inches than your opponent has denial units within 3 inches

      We have not tried that before, but it seems to favor MSU builds. Have you tried it?

    I once knew a guy in the military who was from the south. We were sitting around one day when, as per normal guy conversation came to women. He remarked in total honesty that there was no way this girl he knew was a virgin, because she had 3 brothers. Ive never forgotten about that, even 20+ years later. Lol

    Can you post in here while the podcast is going on? Wanted to ask if the Eldar D’s were made out of glass. Old school but cool in a world filled with silicone.
