Yeah, there was a similar points drop for SM terminators and then swapping to TH/SS put them right back to the same 225 mark. Here's hoping that doesn't happen with the DW!

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Everything looks quite good, I am sad to see PFG and Porta Rack go I used them frequently and had fun with those teleportations and blind tests. Deathwing Knight's look great, but I dont get why there is no full DW reserve force anymore.
Also do we get to keep skilled rider and hit and run on rw bikers?
And for me most importantly do we get the land raider,predator,whirlwind,vindicator formations from the SM book? If we don't can we just take a formation without allies?

The indestructible Land Raiders were a Formation, so that's a yes. But the other tanks were a no, because that was a unit to be purchased directly out of their codex.

you can take any formation from any codex and its still battlforged army, but they cant be part of our decurion. Also got WD today and they mention DW and RW strike force detachments so RW/DW only and doublwing armies are still a thing for anyone who was

I just caught up on this thread, and it looks like this is a rather underwhelming release. I know they got a shit ton of new kits on their last release, and there's a tac squad in the DV box, but if I was a DA player I'd be very disappointed if that chappie was all that was new. Hopefully there'll be something next week to back him up.

What do you mean purchased directly out of their codex?

so they wont include this iconic SM formations that EVERY chapter has just to provide C:SM with some unique flavor or "force" people to purchase c:sm

Well what new release do we actually need? A BA esque tactical squad would be nice since DV one is just a snap together. But we already have a DA veteran kit and upgrade sprues which mix in very well with any sm infantry kit. So the only thing left is to come up with some new units.

im getting the feeling next week is empty in anticipation of age of sigmar, but yes i agree it does feel like we have been cheated, though to be fair that has kinda been the flavour of recent codex releases, "here is a book and a few meager blister packs" i suppose that could be the price of getting admech,knights and harlies. But honestly they could have redone the basic dread and slapped in a mortis pattern in the box, or the razorback to include all variants, a chapter specific tactical squad, recut the terminator sprue so they dont look so dated.

As a Dark Angels Advocate I love the changes so far! Might even get the Ravenwing Silence Squadron, since the Fisher Price "Ravenwing's first missile" are now truly worthy of Blacksword Missile as a name.
