Back when I was playing 40k regularly, my two main armies were Orks and Dark Angels… I guess I have a thing for green armies. Hey, when you buy green paint in bulk, you save. Well, the Dark Angels are getting themselves updated for the latest edition. A new Codex, as well as army bundles, characters, and dice (you can never have too many dice) are all available to pre-order now.
From the announcement:
No matter the foe, regardless of the odds, the proud warriors of the Dark Angels stubbornly refuse to accept defeat. Descendants of the First Legion, they stand foremost amongst the Chapters of the Space Marines, Mankind’s mightiest defenders. None fight with more grim determination than the Dark Angels, and their renowned special companies – the Deathwing and the Ravenwing – are held in awe by allies and enemies alike. Yet behind their devotion to the Imperium lies a dark obsession…
Codex: Dark Angels contains a wealth of background and rules – the definitive book for Dark Angels collectors. Within this 144-page hardback, you’ll find: a dark obsession…
