Just finished stripping, remodelling, and repainting the last core unit to create a new Dark Angel Demi-squad for the Angels of Redemption formation.
The last unit I needed was an Assault Squad, but as I did not really want an Assault Squad in this formation I went with a very minimal unit with just 5 men and no Jet-packs or dedicated transport. As a result I have a 80 point unit armed mostly with bolt pistols. I will probably play this unit as a reserves unit, keeping them at the back of the army until I know where the opponent will strike hardest, and then move them forward to bolster that section.
As the Angels of Redemption can now be deployed as a demi squad they will get the Dark Angel Demi-squad special rules and fire at BS3 on Overwatch. With a 50% hit rate when my units are assaulted most players think twice before launching assaults!
