Ok, like this isn't a much talked about topic for those who are wishing to expand on the Dark Vengeance set, be it Chaos Marines -OR- Dark Angels.
Now that there have been some tacticas issued and things have been tested out, I'm looking to expand this Chapter into multiple points levels. Not that they don't already make a nice edition to existing armies as they provide enough models in the set to fill an Allied FoC (excluding Heavy Support).
So, taking a look at what there is to work with (from the Limited Edition starter set) we have the following to work with:

:hq:
Interrogator Chaplain w/ Plasma Pistol
Librarian
Company Master w/ Power Sword & Combi Plasma
:troops:
Tactical Squad; Plasma Cannon, Plasmagun, Sgt w/Plasma Pistol
:elites:
Deathwing; Assault Cannon, Chainfist
:fa:
Ravenwing; Plasmagun

That is actually a nice start. The Plasma Weaponry is more for the feel of the DA's use of Plasma in the fiction. Most list usually will run a Missile Launcher w/Flakk Missiles and Flamer/Meltagun instead of the Cannon and Plasmagun for the Tactical Squad. In the Ravenwing, the choice for most is Melta so as to "Tank Hunt" with it which serves a nice purpose. But, we're working with what we have here and expanding upon it.
The Company Master is somewhat over-shadowed by both the Librarian and Interrogator Chaplain, luckily he can see use as either a Sergeant, Veteran Segeant, or as a member of a Company Vet Squad. In most list building the points that are used by a second HQ can be allocated elsewhere for more practical purposes. So, in the following lists the Librarian will be utilized at the small points levels while the Chaplain will be used at higher points levels... depending on if I want the Interrogator Chaplain -OR- to use it as the Character of Seraphicus that the model is intended to represent.
Well, lets get on with it and get into some lists.

500 Points
:hq: 100
Librarian; Mastery Level 2
:troops: 350
Tactical; PC, PG, Sgt w/Combi Plasma & Power Sword, Rhino
Tactical; MG, Sgt w/Power Sword & Melta Bombs, Rhino
:fa: 50
Ravenwing Support Squadron Speeder w/ Heavy Bolter

*Not much, but, its a list I can build with ease. The Landspeeder is quite literally in there to soak up the points remaining after the Libby and Tactical squads were put together.
