Ravenwing is now a Formation. I'm staring at a screen shot on my phone while I type on my computer.

1-3 HQ
2-12 Fast
0-1 Elite
0-3 Heavy.

Since I can't read german, that's all you're getting at of me.

Looking solid - it's a shame Deathwing are still horribly overpriced, but the DWK are super-nice now and they have a lot of cool stuff going for them other than Terminators.

Those two together can make a REALLY good RavenDeath force. I approve. Very in your face, by charging up with the Ravenwingand dropping the Deathwing right down on people. I think there was something else about telehomers.... So that makes me a bit happy.

Colour me unimpressed with 'summoned to war' for the DW. Since I will never own any RW squads of any ilk this detachment is less than appealing. It'll be cool for people who have gone hard with their DA collections for sure, but for those who only play terminators...ah well I guess (and no, I'm not switching to GK just to play terminators. DW are what got me into the game as a kid playing Space Hulk and I'm out of compromise for GW).

Not to mention Mortis dreads are out for air support since 'units of Venerable Dreadnoughts may only include one model, and must be given a drop pod' and 'all units from this detachment must start in reserve'. Plus the Deathwing Redemption Force limits us to only taking Venerable dreadnoughts (unless Mortis becomes an in-codex upgrade for Venerables, which would be pretty awesome though still less than usable out of a Drop Pod).

I am having serious concerns about whether or not I'm going to still play DW after this book drops, only because I'm getting sick of GW fucking with my army compositions.

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

Im a dedicated DW player and I'm not liking this restrictions on rules. I use a lot of FW units in my DW force like Chaplain/Mortis /Siege/ dreads, Contemptors, a lot of LR variants. And if the rules have precise rule wording (e.g force must contain venerable dread(not any other variant) it makes it hard for me to use my army....

Dark Angels get hugely improved with an extremely strong overall Command Benefit for their combi-detachment as well as good formations and huge unit improvements...

And every single person complains.

Never change, Dark Angels players

I've stated repeatedly that I play Deathwing, not full Dark Angels. For sure the whole army got swanky bonuses...it just doesn't look like my collection will ever hit the tabletop 'as-is' again.

Considering how well I took the BA codex I'm up for some bitching anyway

RAW, nothing stops you from not running Mortis... but they have to stay off the board and walk in from the back. It's still an Elite choice, right?
