Dark Angels - the real deal...
DW knights got even better with ap3 maces rather than ap4? Middle finger to any other space marine player.
Deathwing rule replaces Inner Circle, grants Fearless and Hatred (CSM).
DW Knights maces of absolution now AP3, Smite is now basically a Smash attack: trade all attacks for one Sx2 AP2 attack, chosen per model, not limited use.
DW Assault is a formation rule, everything Deep Strikes in on choice of turn 2, 3, or 4 - includes Ven Dreads in Pods.
Summoned to War is a detachment rule, all units in detachment must start in Deep Strike reserve, if army has a RW Attack Squadron or Strike Force you basically choose the results of Reserve Rolls for the detachment.
Summon the DW: Formation rule, models in the formation are basically 12" teleport homers for DW units.
Ravenwing rule allows models to reroll failed Jink saves.
Speed of the Raven detachment rule: On first tirn (or second if units in reserves), units that turbo-boost or Flat Out count as Jinking but aren't forced to Snap Shot the following turn.
Ravenwing grenade launcher radshell is no longer -1T but the to-wound of 6 causes two wounds.
Sammael in Sabreclaw gets a D3+1 S4 AP2 hits sweep attack.
Land Speeder Vengeance plasma battery is now 36".
Dark Shroud's Icon of Old Caliban is Fear and Stealth to DA units within 6" and no prevents Overwatch when those units start the Assault phase with 6" of it.
