The General Structure

The Codex: Dark Angels is an expansion book for the Games Workshop Table Top game Warhammer 40,000. This book was published for the first time in 1999, and is for the 3rd edition of Warhammer 40,000 and its Codex: Space Marines.

Although it was later reissued as and updated 'Second' edition, the differences were not significant enough to distinguish it from its original form.

The book has 25 pages and the cover is printed in colour while the majority of the book remains in black and white, although there are usually several pages of colour images of miniatures.
