Just got my WD210 yesterday !
Could not find anything of that nature. Someone has already put up the
specialisation of the 4 chapters (Space Wolves, White Scars, Ravenwing (Dark
Angels), Death Company (Blood Angels) so I won't go too much into that.

A few interesting points though.
The White Scars :
- chaplains are called Brother Priest.
- no Armour Detachment, though it can have tanks in support.
- captains (Khan) can upgrade to Land Speeder (Hero) for free.

The Space Wolves :
- Space Wolves adds an additional +1 to their assault value.
- Wolf Guard termies can upgrade to heavy weapons (+6 points)
- Blood claws has Rampage added in, in addition of Assault and Space Wolves
(cost pts).

The Death Company
- has Assault, Save, Rampage
- led by Chaplain (Hero)

There is an interesting statement made by the author of the article. "Like
the Ravenwing, this (ability) enables the White Scars to excel at particular
types of attacks, but is useful rather than powerful."

Makes one wonder about the abilities of Death Company and Space Wolves - so
the SW and BA has powerful abilities :) - doesn't it ?
