Default Starter Set: DA or Chaos or....?

There is a lot of chatter about the new 40K starter set at the moment and some excitement too.

From what I have read about why people are getting it I'm starting to think Ebay and trading sites will soon be awash with unwanted Dark Angels.

So I thought I would see if I am way off the mark with my guess....

Which bit of the box are you keeping??

Dark Angels, mini-rulebook and packaging. I recently converted back to the Unforgiven after a spell with Chaos, after which I decided Chaos sucked and DA rocked. Plus I think they'd win in a straight fight between the two halves of the box set, unless Cultists, Chosen and whatever the dreadnought-y thing is turn out to be horrendously good in the new codex.

Well, as CSM were my first army I'm definitely leaning heavily towards CSM just to revive my interest in what I view as my dead army. Although I do like the DA models... so we'll see...

I'll be keeping the lot, they look like very nice minis so I'll paint them and put them on a shelf somewhere while I plan a very big project that never gets done.

Also, Ewoks eat people.

I'll be buying one box for all the stuff.

However I will be looking to try and acquire another chaos set at some point. Whether this is purchase another box then try to sell the rest or just try and buy the chaos separately will emerge when i see the ebay chaos price

With the caveat of them re-releasing significant portions of the CSM range to reflect this new level of awesome. I.e. New Cult boxes, new basic marine boxes, new bikes/raptors etc etc etc.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

I'm a fallen angels player so the choice is obvious for me.

The mini rulebook and naturally the CSM. Even if I didn't already play CSM I would definitely consider starting them up because of the awesome their models seems to be oozing from every angle and crevice.
And hopefully I can split the box with one of our local gamers. So many SM players one of them is bound to like the DA models.
