Dark Angels were my first Marine army. I rather liked Their 3rd edition list where they were like normal marines, but they had a few more options while loosing a couple others. Now they simply have fewer options.

My circle of friends feel like they are, at best, a third tier army. Almost anything they can do the vanilla marines can do better and cheaper. THe only exception to this is that they may take terminators as troops.

So, for the longest time I have been using my Dark angels with the vanilla rules. It works well, but missing out on the speci9al characters is a little depressing. For friendly games I am thinking of asking if I can simply use the Dark Angel characters with the Vanilla codex. Does anyone forsee any problems here?
