This may have been done elsewhere, but i cannot see it, so sorry if it has.
I know this Legion doesn't have rules, but as i am like 75% tempted to get started on them along side my Ultramarines i thought it best to get some chatter going on the First Legion.
I have always loved the Dark Angels since i first started playing, and that was mostly down to the Deathwing in 40k, im a huge Terminator Fan. And since the Horus Heresy books have come out, Dark Angels have long since been one of my favourtie Legions. The Lion is probably one of, if not my absolute, favourite Primarchs. They have some of the best fluff, and best special characters.
On the Table top, they are probably as you'd expect, unrepresented due to having no rules. Although they are due to obtain rules ealry next year. I havn't heard much whisper of what these are or will be, but i do know that the First probably wont get special characters or units.
So, at the moment, how do people play them, what do people use? I expect a few melee heavy units in Power Armour plus some decent Volkite squads (As they are mentioned to still use quite alot of Volkite right?).
Have people seen them in play? what sort of things are people taking?
And what sort of rules are people hoping for?
