I have a soft spot for Blood Angels they would get my vote. But get those Annihilators out of there and get some Baal Predators for Petes Sake!!

I think the tau list is pretty great, but perhaps another FW squad?

But really, that depends on what you are playing. Seriously, that is a damned good list. VERY balanced.

Cant comment on these armies but just from what ive seen looking at BA lists, might be a good idea to drop one pred for a baal pred, have one of each eh? still thats only what ive seen, cant say from experiance

If It's for the GT go with the Annihilators, I ended up taking three of them and they worked a treat. Due to the 24" range of the Baals Assault cannon and having escalation thrown Into 50% of the games the Baal suffers as It doesn't have the option of maximising damage upon arrival.
I'd be a bit wary of starting BA's at the moment though due to the new update on It's way via WD (May/June), could change the list dramatically so I'd wait a couple of months before you delve In.
As for your list I'd consider going for a Jump pack for the Chaplain, having one of the filthiest CC units In the game stuck In a rhino won't do them any good, the rhino will be public enemy No1 and once It's gone footslogging DC are easilly avoided. Also your Furioso's come In at 133pts each so you should have some spare points for some 'naked' vets!

I've got to go for the Saim Hann list, and might even try it out sometime. Oh and you spelt the craftworld wrong, its Saim Hann not Sann Haim

Saim Hann is way to primitive imho

I don't really like tau (friend plays them so I see them too much, thought the suits are awesome)

And, I really like assault Marines.

I like the idea of the Samm-Hain list, and I'm afraid I wouldn't know enough to advise on the other two, so in the interests of fairness won't vote, but I think you should drop the vectored engines on the Falcon (have to go full speed to use 'em) and the turret ShuriCannon, as well as the Shining Spears, put a Lance on the Falcon for tank sniping, and use two more squads of Jetbikes to give the Prisms and Falcon a cover save, and nick objectives at the end. With only 8 Troops models on the board, people may ignore your more dangerous things so that you can only get a draw in non-annihilation games...perhaps having 3 Troops in the BA list makes it stronger?
