Default New FAQ's - Wolfwing or Deathwing?

With the new Dark Angels FAQ, the codex received a substantial boost, namely in receiving 3++ storm shields like the other marine codices, having Heavy 2 Cyclone Missile Launchers, and standard PotMS.

With these changes, which army is better for an all-terminator force - Wolfwing or Deathwing?

And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp, Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Loganwing is still a totally great force, especially with their HQ compliment.

Deathwing is a lot more viable now, and with the ability to mix and match, it really is hard to try and one up them.

My vote is for Deathwing.

In the Grim Darkness of the Far Future, there is no Common Sense.

Loganwing simply because of the other things that are offered by the codex. Deathwing is certainly better at pulling off a hammer unit.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

This, what do you want to do? If you want pure terminators than deathwing is probably the best way to go. But loganwing is still a much shootier build, and probably better overall.

Also, I think this is a step in the better direction for gw.

Yeah, depends upon what you're aiming for, and points too, ofc. If you have room for DualWing...well. Certainly received a major boost. I would probably say that Deathwing themselves are much better, but the list overall is worse.

That should answer what I was asking

Hmmm. I think ahab hit the nail on the head, really.

And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain?
