1500 Point Dark Angel List

Hey Guys,

I have a tourney coming up in a couple of weeks and wanted to dust off my Dark Angels and was wondering if you might be able to give me some advice on my list.

The games at the tourney will be played on a 4x4 table and will be objective based.

With out further ado....

HQ
Belial - 130 Points

Troops
Deathwing terminator squad - 270
Paired Lighting Claws(all)
Banner
Apothecary

Deathwing terminator squad - 235
Thunder hammers and storm shields (all)
Cyclone missile launcher

Deathwing terminator squad - 240
1 CF
PF/SB
1 PS/SB
Cyclone Missile Launcher

Deathwing terminator squad - 215
Thunder hammers and storm shields (all)


Heavy
LR Crusader - 270
EA
PSB


Fast
Ravenwing Support Squad - 75
Typhoon Missle Launcher
Multi-melta

Ravenwing Support Squad - 65
Multi-melta



Depending on deployment Belial, Apoth and crew can go in the LR and charge up the middle or I can sit another squad to hold an objective.

The speeders are there for anti-armor.

Let me know if you think I should make any changes or have any pointers as I am all ears!

Cheers

Hmm, you haven't got much anti-horde, and highly competitive lists like lash, leafblower or razorspam won't find it too hard to deal with. I recommend dropping one TH/SS unit for a couple of DP dreads for addded firepower and anti-tank. Also, scrub the LS for a dakka pred and make the dreads venerable if you're facing non-mech lists

Troops
Deathwing terminator squad - 270
Paired Lighting Claws(all)

Deathwing terminator squad - 235
Thunder hammers and storm shields (all)

Dreads can pop armor and tarpit mobs

Thoughts?

Drop the EA and PMS from the LRC, and replace the TL LCs on the dreads with MMs. With the 60 points you can then have a basic pred for covering fire

Hmm I like where you are going but the only problem is DA Preds cost 70, not 60 points. I am also tossing around this idea. Let me know what you think;


HQ
Belial - 130 Points

Troops
Deathwing terminator squad
Paired Lighting Claws(all)
Banner
Apothecary

Deathwing terminator squad
Thunder hammers and storm shields (all)
Cyclone missile launcher

Deathwing terminator squad
1 CF/SB
PF/SB
1 PS/SB
Cyclone Missile Launcher

Elite
Dread - TL Las or MM HF and Ven upgrade


Heavy
LR Crusader



Fast
Ravenwing Support Squad
Multi-melta
Typhoon Missle Launcher

Ravenwing Support Squad
Multi-melta
Typhoon Missle Launcher

Ravenwing Support Squad
Multi-melta
Typhoon Missle Launcher

or I could drop 2 Ravenwing and go with another Dread with the same loadout.


Thoughts?

I like the RW support loadout, and the dread with MM and HF. I would however, maybe remove something to get a libby in termie armour to deal with the inevitable GK and SW lists you will face.

Hmmm the RW support is decent but I am worried about the 4x4 table size as it will be easy to get at them. I am liking the idea of two ven dreads with MM and HF. But still undecided.

I like the Libby in termie armor but am worried I would have to drop to much to get him into the list.

What do you think?

I see your point with the speeders. Have you considered suicide DS speeders with MM/HF?
If that's not to your taste, consider an all ML devvy squad.
IMO there is an overlooked unit in the codex: the techmarine!
It is more expensive at first than the vanilla one, but the servitors are better, less expensive and have better stats. Consider:
techmarine w/ 4 HB servitors is just 175.
The other overlooked unit is the vets, especially with the new FAQ:
5 vets w/ PW and rhino are 210
or 5 vets w/ combi weapons + rhino are 185

food for thought

I've got no problem with the suicide speeder as the lone speeder in the current list would DS with MM depending on deployment.

I like the thoughts of vets in rhino and the devy squad but I wanted to stay with the Deathwing flavor. If I incorporated those I think I would have to drop a squad of termies.

I like the Ven dreads with HF and MM as they can provide the needed mob/anti armor support

The other option is dropping the speeder and 5 more points - maybe the chainfist for the dakka pred......

Thoughts?

If you drop 2 speeders and give the third the HF/MM combo, you have 150 to spend. I would either:
5 vets in a rhino with a PW
techmarine with 3 HB servitors
2 preds with DB
take anothr DP dread with MM/SB, and drop venerable and HF from the other
take a libby in termie armour and SB
