      Yeah DA are plasma guns and power swords

      Blood Angels love assault cannons, chain weapons but also power spears and axes

      Salamanders love flamers and THs

      Iron Hands love THs, exotic ranged weps

      Raven Guard use LCs and stealthier weapons

      Ultramarines are stock load-outs and power gladius

      Imperial Fists are bolters out the ass

        Forever

        The official reason given in previous editions was that DA are the first legion and have access to older technology

        Like their 3rd edition Tactical Squads came with a metal Plasma Cannon, their jetbike has one, the plastic squad in Dark Vengeance has triple plasma, etc etc

        Always. Even in HH their armory give them access to unique Plasma weapons, like the Burner and the Repeater.

        One of their characters (cipher) wielded a bolt pistol and a plasma pistol. Lore morons have extrapolated this to mean that EVERY Dark Angel preferes them.

          Cipher is a bad character.

        It has been greenish blue in all the video games. So I guess it's canon.

      I thought they simply had a lot of them since Big E trusted them with more esoteric tech than most legions

      Blood Angels tactical squads can take heavy flamers
      Their characters and squad leaders could take melta pistols
      They have a tank that has flamethrower sponsons and gatling cannons
      The horus heresy rules for them can replace any flamer with a gatling cannon on tanks and dreadnoughts.
      They have access to special power weapons in Horus heresy, but the modern rules only has it for the golden flying guys
      Despite favoring melta weapons, flamers, and assault cannons, and power swords/axes in the lore and on data sheets, they never really got any special rules for those weapons other than the ability they can take them. Their basic close combat was really good because of the +1 to wound rolls in 9th edition. A unit using chainswords was strong enough to destroy dreadnoughts and imperial knights. But with all the nerfs to stagnate the game and prevent models from getting removed from the table, they're not very good at much currently.
