New Starter Box: Dark Vengeance Details
Posted by Valace2
Courtesy of the folks over at Beasts of War we have exciting new details surrounding the upcoming starter box for 6th edition - Dark Vengeance.
Long rumored to be featuring the forces of Chaos and Space Marines of the Dark Angels chapter, Dark Vengeance does not disappoint. The rumors of Chaos Cultists are indeed true, and according to the source they are very impressive.
Along with the Cultists you get a six man Chosen squad - not to familiar with Chaos Space Marines but they sound like regular powered armoured models. This is also quite interesting: there is a new Chaos model coming out called the Hellbrute. The jury is still out on whether this is a Monstrous Creature or a Vehicle, but it could turn out to be similar to the Grey Knight Dreadknight.
Not to be outdone, the Dark Angel side of the box is also quite impressive, sporting the standard Tactical Squad and also a nice five man squad in Terminator Armour. Now the nice thing about these units is the unique way you can pose them, sounds like they will be Dark Angel specific. There also is a heavy amount of plasma included in the squads. To complete the Dark Angel force you get a squad of three bikers and three very nice characters a Chaplain, a Librarian, and a Commander all of which are very nice models.
Now I know what a lot of you will be picking this up for: the mini rulebook. I can't blame you as the main rule book gets heavy after awhile. Like previous starter sets it is in there. If the Dark Angel models are as nice as they say I might actually pick this one up.
Let us know what you think in the comments below.
