Default DIY successor Dark angels chapter

hey. Just thought Id share my future space marines army with you guys. Itll be a balanced army, with some elements in each aspect of combat.
And now, off to build the army list, so look forward for some army lists in the near future

Looks a bit like Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons.

More what I associate with the Blood Angels than the Dark Angels (as it is a fairly light combination), but it should look pretty striking on the table. If you end up using a lot of Dark Angels parts, you are going to want to do some testing with the robes. I am not sure the bone-colored robes are going to look good with that scheme. You might want to try something darker.

I like it. What symbol will be on the shoulder pad? Also I assume the white pad will have the chapter symbol on it, yeah?

What colour will their bolters and other weapons be?

As Khanaris mentioned, what colour will their robes be (if they have any)?

yeah, Im gonna try it out with robes for the regular marines, using the dark angel elites box. Dreads will be ordered from FW.

And about the robes, Im not sure what color to try, but Im thinking a light brown, something close to leather.
The white shoulder pad, will hold some kind of symbol, but Im not sure on what it will be yet, as Ive looked in the codex for ideas, but they have so many different ideas in there. ATM, Im guessing I will put squad (like troops, fast, elite and heavy markings) markers on the white shoulder pad, and some fancy marks on the red one.

Anyone know how the shoulder pads for the deathwing terminators look like?

If you are using the ones from the veteran sprue, you get 3 Deathwing pads. I think they all have the broken sword on them in one form or another. Forge World also makes a set for them, which are of course more expensive but contain a lot more detail.
