The list structure still needs some work IMO, in particular I would never play one of the pure ironwing and deathwing themes it is supposed to allow, simply because you have to buy ravenwing to get the auto-include (both for power and role) planes. SO it's basically a ravenwing list to me. Which is fine for me as it's a decent white scars alternative, but probably doesn't fulfil its potential as a dark angels list.

I did have a draft not posted here that had a complete structure re-write.
Less restrictive, closer to how the Imperial Fists list was done.

The first draft I've done opens up the list structure a lot, but with a division between Main DA, Deathwing, Ravenwing and Ironwing. I think the slightly siloed structure fits the fluff of the list, and makes it possible to make access to slightly exotic units conditional.

Still, would be very useful to see your latest work Mard.

As an aside, with all the Plasma a Dark Angels list will include, how do people feel about weapons being "Slow Fire"? I personally think it should be reserved for WE, as keeping track of it quickly gets really annoying.

I'd rather not see slow to fire appear on every DA unit with a plasma cannon; it's one of the main things that turned me off of the UK DA list. It makes sense on WE-sized guns, but for the smaller stuff I think Mard's solution of increasing the strength but decreasing the range is a good one. Could slightly increase points if you think it's necessary, as it does turn tacticals into a more potent, if slightly less flexible, formation.

Noisy assasin hit the nail on the head with the reasoning behind my plasma choices.
