Subject:  - Dark Angels - Which list would be better?
basically your asking if hellblasters are better then black knights and the answer is a firm.. situationally.. 7/10 the hellblasters are worse. the black knight isnt just good at shooting, hes good and movement and hes reasonable at melee and hes hard to even hit in his own right which trumps the bonus wound in the blasters baseline and bonus quality of his gun.
the above being said you also feel each casuality on black knights more then hellblasters because max squads are 6 not 10. all in all i dont think either is perticularly all that great when you consider that the str 11+ and me doom cannons stuff are tossing about makes a 4+ invul a lot less useful then it once did.
i rate both lists a 4/10 and recommend the hellblaster castle over the black knights anyway simply because stry wounds wont be felt as bad by the list, even if it means if something does touch them in melee their probably likely to suffer horribly unlike the knights whos corvus hammers might get them out of a jam if its small enough
