Found this on BoLS.



GW has linked now all generic marine models to the DA/SW/BA/GK pages at their shop the dark angels got scouts for troops, but no tactical squad

Dark Angel tactical squad in the pipeline? I seem to recall a 401 redirect somewhere on the internet for a DA tactical squad. Interesting to say the least.

Holy crap, I was planning on buying a tac squad + new DA sprue... Guess that will be postponed a bit

Edit: The original post on BOLS is by Atia, who is the new rumors king AFAIK, so that lends some credence.

i think a DA tactical squad is highly unlikely with the introduction of the upgrade sprue,unless the codex DA tactical squad is significantly different to the vanilla squad, that said they already have a tactical squad in the dark vengeance box which has the plasma cannon included so they are pretty well covered in that reguard.

I would have prefered to have seen upgrade sprues for the other founding chapters or chapter specific sets for fist/sallys/iron/scars, they are seriously over looked.

the new chaplain and libby are both nice models but i dont think they are worthy of a weeks release and white dwarf, maybe we will something else next week to nicely round off the codex before warhammer fantasy kicks off for 13 weeks of crazy.

On the other hand: BA and SW also got upgrade kits, whilst having their own tac squads. Fair point about the DV set though... though I'm not a fan of those monopose kits.

Well I like the 3 Land Raider formation, and I do like the bonuses for it which thrown in with my with my Iron Hands could become rather nice. Otherwise I'll largely ignore it all. Especially since it looks like MotF are gone and my chapter still don't get a named character. Guess I'll just stay in 30k for my Iron Hands.

DA tac squad could have robes and tabards, maybe a mace type weapon, DA flavoured special/heavy weapons. Rules wise the may get something special, being 1st legion i could see them getting volkites or maybe some sort of plasma gun/cannon hybrid with salvo

i honestly cant argue with your logic, the blood angel tactical squad was a surprise, as was the blood angel/DA/SW upgrade sprues, realisticaly those three chapters needed those sprues about as much as i need to eat more pies(currently on a diet as i was 22 stone) .

so realistically it wouldnt shock me too much if they did put out a DA tactical squad,but i feel its highly unlikely, maybe it will just be a vanilla tactical squad with a couple of DA sprues chucked in? dont get me wrong i would be totally up for it, hell the more stuff they produce like that the better it is for me from a business point of veiw, if anything i dont think the upgrade sprues go far enough, i think the ultra marines for example deserve at least a set of bad ass veterans honor guard and a plastic Marneus Calgar or maybe they could do more upgrade sprues and do some terminator upgrades too.
come to think of it the vanilla space marine terminators could do with a revamp while we are at it, and the command squad sprue is really starting to look tired, i was looking at it yesterday and comparing the old to the new and the new CAD designed marine sprues are so crisp and smooth.

just speculation on my part, they might not even get a tac squad at all

is it me or does anyone agree that ultra smurf sprue would have been better with some tyranic war veteran bits, the play such a huge part of their fluff yet are barely represented model wise
