Dark Angel Space Marine
The Dark Angels
are a dark and forbidding Chapter of the Emporium. They where the first
chapter to be created and they have a terrible secret that they
absolutely must hide. A result of this the Dark Angels
display traits not seen in other chapters. The main one is their
When you face a Dark Angel force you know that
they will fight to the last man. This army is perfect
for the more calculating clinical player. Because of this the Dark
Angels are considered as boring by the
more flamboyant players. Do not be put off by this, if you keep an even
head then you will win more games than all
the other chapters put together.

The 2013 Codex sees the Dark Angel Scouts move back to
being troop choices. This is partly because there are a
number of new units added to the Elite section. Do not let this fool
you though. The Dark Angel chapter more than
any other Space Marine chapter rely on the Space Marine Tactical units
as the core of the army.
Dark Angel Space
Marines have always been famous for their stubbornness. In the
2013 Codex you will find that have the Stubborn or Fearless special
rule in addition to the ' They Know No Fear ' special rule. The bonus
of this stubbornness is that the Dark Angels will fight to
the last man. This means that the Dark Angel Space Marine
will kill more of the enemy other model than the other Space
Marine Chapters will. This is specially noticeable if you use the
Combat Squads option for you Tactical squads. When you are using Combat
squads, the units are reduced to 5 men units, and it is when you have
smaller units that the Dark Angle Stubbornness really starts to show.
However the downside is that they will not back down from close combat
even when there is no hope of winning.
