Dark Angels - New
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Who are Dark Angels?
The Dark Angels are considered amongst the most powerful and secretive of the Loyalist Space Marine Chapters. They were the Ist Legion of the original 20 Space Marine Legions to be created during the First Founding of the 30th Millennium. Though they claim complete allegiance and service to the Emperor of Mankind, their actions and secret goals at times seem at odds with that professed loyalty, as the Dark Angels strive above all other things to atone for an ancient crime of betrayal committed over 10,000 standard years ago against the trust of the Emperor during the time of the Horus Heresy. The Dark Angels stand first amongst the Space Marine Chapters, as they have done since their very inception as the Ist Legion. They are a proud Chapter, with traditions and rituals that date back to the earliest days of the Imperium of Man.
2. What is the Dark Angels playstyle?
The Dark Angels are often thought of as three armies in one, as they have a core of regular Space Marines, surrounded by fast-moving Ravenwing units, and ultra-resilient Terminator Deathwing units. The Dark Angels bring everything we should expect from a Space Marine chapter, while showing a stoic knight attitude. They also have special units and formations, totally unique to their chapter. Dark angels have an overall balanced playstyle in terms of melee and ranged, though leaning a bit towards ranged. If you like having a sturdy gunline that is supported by quite powerful melee, you'll like playing Dark Angels
