My Dark Angels Librarian & Crusade 50 power level army list

The final piece to the current version of my Dark Angels army is a librarian which I have been tinkering with for a little bit now. Following the release of the codex and seeing just how potent a Dark Angels psyker can be, I knew I had to get one. I picked up the primaris librarian model and began tinkering with it a bit.

I was pretty happy with him until I saw this video from Jam’s Mini Mods on youtube called ” How to Kitbash Primaris Dark Angels Librarian”- https://youtu.be/hM-b1DHAS40

I loved the idea of the candles but sadly didn’t have any. Regardless I did a little more painting work and then put the model away for a bit, needing a bit of a break from 40k.

I recently picked up the Celestial Hurricanum kit for the Cities of Sigmar project and discovered it comes with an abundance of candles. Almost as if the planets aligned, I knew my Dark Angels Librarian was meant to have candles and so, getting some greenstuff and a hobby knife, I went to work.

After painting, this is the finished result:

Overall I’m quite pleased with how this turned out. I tried my hand at some OSL for the candles and though I’m not 100% happy with it, I think it’s perfectly fine for “Table top Standard”. I don’t own an airbush sadly but OSL is a technique I would love to learn more about. Who knows, it may be what pushes me over the edge to finally get one.

So with my librarian painted, my Dark Angels are ready for War! Just in time too as we are looking at being able to start playing games again within the next few months. My local gaming group are already making plans to play some crusade and so I’ve been planning my list. We are starting off at 50 power level and here is what I’ve thrown together so far:

DARK ANGELS CRUSADE PATROL

HQ

Ravenwing Talonmaster Models: 1 Power: 8

Primaris Librarian Models: 1 Power: 5

TROOPS

Intercessor Squad Models: 5 Power: 5 Intercessor × 4 Intercessor Sergeant × 1

Intercessor Squad Models: 5 Power: 5 Intercessor × 4 Intercessor Sergeant × 1

ELITES

Redemptor Dreadnought Models: 1 Power: 9

FAST ATTACK

Outrider Squad Models: 3 Power: 6 Outrider × 2 Outrider Sergeant × 1

Outrider Squad Models: 3 Power: 6 Outrider × 2 Outrider Sergeant × 1

Inceptor Squad Models: 3 Power: 6 Inceptor × 2 Inceptor Sergeant × 1

Total Models: 22

Total Power: 50

This feels like a solid base, allowing me to utilise many core units from the full 2k Dark Angels army while getting to grips with how the new codex plays. As we increase the points costs for games, I plan on introducing Deathwing elements, as well as additional intercessors for snatching objectives and of course, hellblaster fire support. It wouldn’t be Dark Angels without copious amounts of plasma.
