Colour me unimpressed with 'summoned to war' for the DW. Since I will never own any RW squads of any ilk this detachment is less than appealing. It'll be cool for people who have gone hard with their DA collections for sure, but for those who only play terminators...ah well I guess (and no, I'm not switching to GK just to play terminators. DW are what got me into the game as a kid playing Space Hulk and I'm out of compromise for GW).
Not to mention Mortis dreads are out for air support since 'units of Venerable Dreadnoughts may only include one model, and must be given a drop pod' and 'all units from this detachment must start in reserve'. Plus the Deathwing Redemption Force limits us to only taking Venerable dreadnoughts (unless Mortis becomes an in-codex upgrade for Venerables, which would be pretty awesome though still less than usable out of a Drop Pod).
I am having serious concerns about whether or not I'm going to still play DW after this book drops, only because I'm getting sick of GW fucking with my army compositions.
