I don't think you could fit it on the model - There's already enough bling on them to make a modern rapper go "Yo dawg, chill".

New DA tactical squad will feature tactical squad sprues with the DA upgrade sprue plus a sprue of pouting SM heads and SM torsos featuring my chemical romance t-shirts and banners

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

very true, could be something for a future sprue, if GW had any sense they could really make the most of these cheap little add on sprues, tyranic war vets upgrades, bionics upgrades, different mk armour sprues, terminator upgrades, banners, different mk bolters, and god forbid things like, Ork clan upgrades, different Eldar heads/helmets(since they never put them in the fecking kits),pretty much anything forgeworld have done in the last 20 years that is an upgrade set, vehicle doors and icons

they are a licence to print money in my opinion, whats important is availabiity, put them in stores and sell them to indies and the upgrade sprues will sell well.

I agree with you there, don't mind they released those upgrade kits,but there are others who needed the attention more. (Black templar, Imp fists, Sallies) Well done on the getting healthier part btw

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.
Very true, wouldn't be a bad move if they just redid the rest of the old basic SM Boxes. I opened a assault marine box and black templar box the other day and it's a lot worse in comparison to the new stuff.

dont get me wrong i want it too, but between the new upgrade sprue, the coy veterans box and the backpacks from the dark vengeance tac marines along with both the FW and limited ed GW transfer sheets i reckon i will have some cool looking sons of caliban

Can't fault them for trying something new (like the upgrade packs) on chapters that are more popular.

If they sell well, you might see them for other chapters soon as well (would love an iron hands one for bionics).

I had an AMAZING time at fightclub.

I arrived a bit late, so I missed the introductions, but man... I had an awesome time at fightclub! 10/10 I would recommend fight club to anybody!

Nothing I own got nerfed, most all of it got buffed, there's nothing blatantly overpowered or even an obvious 'best choice' in many areas, some shitty units got made a lot more viable, and the points got brought down.

I fail to see what people can be sad about.

The difference between BA/SW boxes and a DA box is that the former have different weapon options to the vanilla codex, Heavy Flamers for BA and pretty much everything for SW. I doubt DA would get their own squad for aesthetics only. If the new codex gives them new weapon options then maybe, but not otherwise. If we're going by them missing on the website, I'd like to note that Vanguard Veterans have been listed as Fast Attack for the entire time that they have been Elites. If something is missing I would sooner assume that someone just made a mistake somewhere.

loving the chapter tactics for the BT and points reduction for Grimaldus. makes the neophytes worth taking again the sacrificial 10pnts for Rage and counter attack. back to bolt pistols and chainswords, the true BT's.
