No room in the ravenwing list for a chaplain on a bike? I’m 100% running one in my DA list.

Great video guys. Though watching Chef eviscerate Beards lists is both amusing and painful 😂. I suspect Chef likes to go clubbing baby seals on the weekend for funsies.

Love the content. As I know you dont have the models to run Emperors Children, can you please do a list analysis of what you would run competitively for them just for fun if you did have the models! Im dying to know what you would run!

I ran a pure Deathwing list just the other day.
Belial
Strikemaster/mace & shield
2 x 5man termy units
All stock and 1 heavy using Cyclone missile launcher
2x 5man Deathwing Knights
2 x Land Raiders/storm bolter & Hunter Killer missile
1 x Leviathan Dreadnought/Grav Flux, flamers & Siege Claw
Was a fast win for deathwing
Dakka termies were in raiders so only 3 models on table. I went second.
Blew smoke strat etc..

I am not sure how well these armies work in 9th. I think there’s just not enough models for the board control needed. I think green wing are underrated in current dark angels meta.

If you add a librarian to the mixed wing list, you should seriously consider Ezekial. He is completely worth the points

Agree with some things, but not all. With obsec bikes and terminators, I wouldn’t lean into Rites of War. For the first list I would drop the bike captain for Sammael, drop the knights (even though I love them), and take your bikers with 2 melta and attached MM Attack Bike. I like the Attack Bikes attached as its harder to delete the unit and therefore your apothecary can bring guys back. Oh, drop the DW apothecary for the RW one….for sure. Vengeance is awesome, but I honestly don’t think you need the shroud in 9th. You won’t be moving… Read more »

Hi, im not a fan of the land speeder vengance as much as i wanna be, i just find them consistnly underwhelming, 3 land speeder typhoons with melta, and 3 tornadoes with melta and assault cannons make up the AT portion of my pure ravenwing, i also bring x2 5man black knights a primais chaplain on bike, and sammy is a must. I spend the 2 cp to bring a talonmaster in an aux support det.

Love the content keep it up!

Chef basically covered most of what I was gonna say. When running a pure Ravenwing or Ravenwing heavy list, bringing the Brilliant Strategist warlord trait is a must. When you consider that Ravenwing run off the Dev doctrine you absolutely don’t leave home without it. Outside of that I think Deathwing are the stronger of the three wings now. A lot of people don’t realize just how badly the Ravenwing got nerfed from 8th edition. It was a bunch of tiny nerfs here and there that added up to quite a bit when all is said and done. Personally I… Read more »

It’s nice to see your dark angels also get picked up by beard instead of how they used to get passed around between you all. It means he can really learn all there tricks and dare I say secrets.

I find a deathwing battalion vanguard with librarian terminator, azrael, mixture of deathwing terminators, a unit of DW knights, ravenwing Apothecary, DW Ancient and a greenwing patrol with chaplain on bike with intercessors and 6 plasmaceptors to be my favorite for Dark Angels. I’m not a fan of ravenwing, even though they are really cool and fast, I just find the DW durability to be better. It doesn’t matter if they’re slow, so are Death Guard. It’s nice to see different lists that can work, it shows that the Dark Angels book is a really good book.

Nice! I would consider a librarian in terminator armour instead of belial and the strikemaster, casting righteous repugnance to reroll hits and wounds. WC 7 but keep a couple of CP back and boom, tasty and you’ve saved yourself some points for something else.

Aaaaand chefs just said the same 🤣
