Default Dark Angel Rumours

I'm a little late posting this but I couldn't see it posted on here anywhere yet. It's just a small rumour and I don't know how trusted a source it is so have some salt at the ready, but it's a start.

Heard this stuff elsewhere before, however coming thru a more trusted source now...

Rumor of plasma cannon sponsons on DA tanks. And a special Plasma main gun predator or vindicator...
Make of it what you will, it's just a rumour.

Hmmm.... Saw this a couple of days ago, don't remember where, but I thought that it would be interesting to see. There is precedent for doing that with units like Chappies, wolf guard were mentioned, and crypteks and Necron lords are very similar to what they are describing. Only time will tell.

Please yes! I like the idea of chaplains running around in a cross between wolf guard and sang priests - much more original. And who doesn't like plasma on their vehicles? Maybe a new land raider variant?

Some form of executioner predator? Like the sound of that.

If they just fixed the bike and tactical entries in Codex: DA then it actually wouldn't be so bad a hotfix.

Still, I await the Day Belial is more than a sergeant with 3 wounds!

I like Dark Angels.

I really like Chaplains.

And I fucking love Plasma weaponry.

I like the sound of these rumors, been looking for something to get me going with the Unforgiven once again.

I hope this isn't true, it's taking me forever to do my Knights Of Blood, the last thing I need is irresistible Dark Angels coming out with tons of Plasma goodiness to bugger things up for me even more!
Also, Ewoks eat people.
Never forget that.

Well, if these rumours pan out, my SW may be getting a run under the DA codex. I love using other codices from time to time. I also love plasma weapons.

More Plasma! Wooo!
Its about time SM's got a tank sized Plasma weapon. Saves me having to explain my custom datasheet PlasmaRaider to every new player i game with.

DA getting some love is a good step too, just not one that interests me.
