I am totally stealing those power maul-censers and morning star for my Death Guard terminators!

They also look as though they'd work well for Word Bearers.

I wonder if any of those Storm Shields have the DA angel with scythe on the front.
That would really work in a Death Guard force. You could give to a Breacher Squad Sgt.

Makes you wonder what other nice bits the new kits will have, and what uses we can put them to! ;)

I'm all about 30k, but 40k Dark Angels were my first army and love when I was 11 so I'm definitely adding to the small force I have. Beautiful looking minis there.

I like a lot of the new Dark Angel miniatures. The Deathwing set looks to have a lot of fun components

They are also doing bundles. There's the "one-click launch bundle", Deathwing Assault bundle, and the Ravenwing Attack Squadron.
Also there is the DA Battleforce, which appears to be mainly Ravenwing.

That flyer is very cool, as are the terminators. Feel no pain terminators with a plasma cannon? Yes please!

I think the Land Speeder looks weird but has the perfect number of engines to slap on the side of my bastion to make it a drop bastion.
The cover of the codex looks awesome and the new Ravenwing Banner is a must have,I hope it is flat
Nice the bikers are all Heresy friendly ;)
They also have the 30th aniversary head which I love

These new Dark Angels look awesome! I too need those censer-maces for my Death Guard too.

But that new land speeder looks a little goofy to me... :/
A little to cluttered in terms of design.

I'd doubt it, all the other banners recently have been moulded detail(Grey Knights, Blood Angels, Space Wolves) so I would expect this to follow the trend. A shame 'coz it is a really nice shape
I have a blog! <-- Clicky!
