Is Games Workshop being very sneaky and dropping the Dark Angels codex next?
This leads me to wonder what we can expect from the Dark Angels codex. I think we can expect several new characters. I am hoping to see the return of Asmodai. Based off of the prevuious codex we will have the Chapter Master Azrael, Grand Master of the Librarians Ezekiel, Master of the 1st Company Belial and Master of the Ravenwing Sammael. Will we get a named Battle Comapany Master? The return of Namaan (yes I know he is dead)? More than one chaplain character like the Blood Angels? Only time will tell. I am hoping for a new Power Armor upgrade kit as the old Dark Angel one is lackluster. I would also love to see a Deathwing Terminator kit but I believe that depends on how different they are equipped versus codex terminators. What I am really wondering about are the units that we have no idea about. Stuff that has not been written into the fluff yet. What is going to be the Dark Angels equivalent of Sanguinary Guard, Thunder Wolf Cavalry, Purifiers? What flyer are my beloved Dark Angels going to get? I personally do not believe the Land Speeder Tempest rumors. I don't think that other chapters get cool looking flyers while Dark Angels get a Land Speeder variation. I would be very letdown if Games Workshop does that. Here is to hoping for a surprise release that blows our socks off!
