Default Terminator question

I saw that there are two types of terminators for the space marine army. But, really, what is the difference betwen a deathwing and a normal terminatore painted bone coloured.

Well Deathwing terminators are from the Dark Angels chapter.

I believe the only difference would be army composition e.g. Deathwing would have all terminators, while an average army will only have a few.

Deathwing Terminators also benefit from the 'Stubborn' special rule, until the new codex comes out, at which point they'll probably be even better...fearless no doubt. ^-^

Lets see, currently Deathwing cost more by a third of a marine. They are stubborn, and Deathwing is the only way to field an all Terminator army (failing the "counts as" armies that some people play).

Rumored Deathwing: will cost more than a regular terminator but less than the deathwing terminator in the current dark angels codex.

Will have one less heavy weapon per unit, but can be mixed (ie, 2 lightning claw, 1 vet sgt, 1 storm bolter, 1 assault cannon)

Half of your Deathwing will be able to deepstrike automatically first turn (which goes really well with ravenwing bikers now having teleport homers and the scout USR built in)

Can be taken as troop choice if you take the master of the deathwing as one of your hq choices.

But again, until the codex is released these are just rumors...

In the meantime Deathwing are like your regular terminators, Only Better!!!

Sorry about the lack of clarity of my post guys. I meant model wise.

Your average Deathwing Terminator will have a lot of Dark Angels insignia, as seen in the message I sent you.

Edit: And here.

In the days of metal terminators, the deathwing models would have some icons on different parts of their armor and the occasional feather. Now that the large plastics are out, the only difference is what you put into the model.

Remember. Plastic is your friend because you can mod things easily. Now go out and make some kick ass plastic DWings!

There's a good chance that FW would release DA "add-ons" like what they did for BT termies. (Thinks of storm shields).
