looking great so far, the dark angel upgrade sprue is a bit of a shock , but a welcome one, seems the rumours could be indeed true about this been a big release if we are gettign quite a few of these new upgrade sprues plus recut standard kits and quite likely some vehicles too.

NERDGASM!!! Would say that either the existing DA or this one will be direct only, funily enough the old SW sprue became direct only when the new SW kit came out. Ill be stocking up on the existing DA and old SW sprues plus as many dev squads as I can

Also the pic is a little grainy is that a plasma or a grav pistol on the far left ass marine? Im also thinking that double chainsword has special rules like +1S or AP4 or something.

im thinking its grav too, i expect they will add a dash of new weapons to any new old kit to aid with selling it to people who already have assault marines out of the ears.

i must be tired today, just realized the implications of this release... gonna have to mess about with my site in a big way as the loss of the previous tactical and now the assault squad means many lines are going to drop off and be replaced making my current system redundant (alot of marine parts were duplicated across the various sprues so i combined them all to save space when we started this caper)

I can see some real potential in the new kits, the assault squad looks promising

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?

Ill definitly be placing several large orders when I sort my paypal account out, as I havent used it in 2 years. Also professinal opinion request bits, would you use immolator or baal pred heavy flamers for a LR Ares?

Baal predator makes the most sense, it looks like it belongs on a space marine vehicle, but you could also consider the new flamer from the Kastelan Robot sprue.
its gonna be far more common and its very stripped back so less adjustment requied for a conversion

plus it looks awesome

I'm loving that DA champ. That winged helm has always been a fave of mine as far as astartes go. The sword is cool too, but I don't so much care for the text. Ultramarines kit is decent, want to see BA. Those assault marines aren't impressing me other than the two handed chainsword.
