So with the wd that came out a while ago now. Primaris became inducted in to the dw. So what I wanted to know was thoughts on if the repulsor would be bone or green?

I went green for mine. However bone would look perfectly fine as well, and would be a valid choice in both current and future. Just when it comes time for the decals, choose the red logos which symbolise Deathwing, instead of white which are Greenwing. If you don't have them, then they come from any DA Terminator Box/Ravenwing Box. 

 

Fair warning: White is annoying to paint on something that large, as I found out..

The current codex doesn't allow you to give the Deathwing keyword to the Repulsor -  but in the context of Bladeguard Veterans, I could see the next codex embracing Primaris Deathwing wholeheartedly -  clarifying that yes, they are Deathwing, as are their transports.

Honestly, I think either you gone pure white / bone (of which a spray of Wraithbone might be the most helpful thing around), or predominantly green with recessed panels painted bone and bearing the Deathwing iconography. Having a strip of Bone across the front of the Repulsor, breaking apart the large block of green, would look good aesthetically and show that the vehicle is simply on secondment to the 1st Company rather than a permanent allocation.

Bladeguard Veterans IMHO Will not be DW cause they don't wear TDA or the primaris equivalent (that GW didn't released yet)
I guess that Bladeguard in DA will be primaris company veterans instead

DW repulsors will be bone white with DW iconography ofc

By RAW, there are  ways of being in the Deathwing without TDA. Any Master can take the strategem that grants them the Deathwing keyword and Inner Circle rule - even ones in power armour.  And, of course, all Librarians  are Deathwing.

 

Maybe they'll just drop "all Deathwing line troopers have to wear TDA"

I don't think bladeguard veterans will be Deathwing, they will just end up as company veterans of some kind instead of in the 1st company.

I don't see why this is strictly necessary. The point of Bladeguard Veterans, is that they're super-experienced, which is why they're trusted with such special gear as storm shields and mastercrafted power swords. And several Masters have already crossed the Rubicon - makes sense that the Bladeguard Veterans be the next step - squads of "ordinary" Primaris of  immense experience, being inducted into the Deathwing.

While I am aware of the DW being clad in terminator armor, I never noted where it said it was a requirement to do so. For instance, the wording of Terminator Armor (on the wiki) said that the Dark Angels had enough terminator suits for everyone, but again nothing about being a requirement. I mean I guess it technically implies the aforementioned, but I digress.

 

I have a pro primaris bias, so I fully agree with Iron Lord on this - in light of the Bladeguard Veterans being announced, there will have to be room for the DW to accommodate non-Terminator primaris units. Which again switches back to the argument was made in the thread that I made, but at that point, I think we are veering off-topic from what the OP's original question was.

Pre-2e (and very early 2e) imagery tended to allow for it, at least:

Outside of Primaris, I'd have gone with "the Deathwing wear Terminator Armour under almost all circumstances" but allow for the occasional situation where the mission just isn't suited to Terminator armour.

 

 

The "ultra-versatile 1st Company" portrayed in the 8e 2e Space Marine Codex, seemed to me exactly the sort of thing that would appeal to most Chapters, even the Dark Angels.

Isn't there some info in the knights of caliban trilogy where there are members of the deathwing guarding the doors of an inner circle gathering and patrolling the halls of the rock in power armour? Or did I imagine that?

Deathwing the Company all fight in TDA, that's been clearly stated in DA lore for nearly 30 years.

Deathwing the Circle within Circles is another matter, it includes The Grand Master, all Masters, Interrogators, Librarians and a few other folk regardless of the armour they wear.

 

The two are not the same, don't get them mixed up.

Of any current vehicle that could eventually be [officially] tapped for the Deathwing, I would say that the Repulsor Executioner would be the best candidate, it being the heaviest tank now available to the Adeptus Astartes.
