Dark Angels Review: Ravenwing Darkshroud

And we have a winner here ladies and gentlemen.  And that's not something I say too often.  Expect to see as many of these in Dark Angels armies as you might Heldrakes in Chaos Space Marines.

When it comes down to it, the Darkshroud is an enhanced land speeder.  Sure, its flimsy with its 2 hull points and AV=10 all around.  But that's not why Dark Angels armies will be taking it.  Rather, its utility comes off its power to grant stealth to nearby units and +1 combat resolution (if they don't already have that one).

Coupled with its rather low points cost, this flyer is going to be amazing on the battlefield, particularly when supporting ravenwing, but also dual-wing, deathwing, and almost any other combination of Dark Angels.

There's only one option here: heavy bolter variant (80 points) or assault cannon variant (100 points).  Both are good.  Take either.  Use them.  Go forth and be sneaky.
