If you don't know what you like you could always play a game with some friends and use stand ins until you find your play style

My suggestions, if someone else suggests one use theirs....Im tau not sm.

To start you should get Seth.. Great melee and not to mention whirlwind of gore and the counter attack. You should get a tac squad or two and have atleast one with some kind of anti-tank wep. Death company with jet packs or a transport. Assault troops with meltas if you didn't give the tac a weapon (this tends to end badly with my friends taking out their own units when my tank exploads)

Tac Squads are for the weaker chapters, Assault Squads are where Blood Angels rock it.

I would start a BA army by getting a couple of Assault Squads and magnetising the jump packs as they will be the core of any force you try to build.

Pick up a Death Company box, too- mix the Death Company pads, torsos and legs with the Assault Marine parts to bling them up and make them more Blood Angel/Flesh Tearer-esque.

how to start an army? probably with a tactical squad mate, good choice on the flesh tearers man, theyre my favourite loyalist chapter, gabriel seth is a madman! but anyway, the best place to start is either a tactical squad or Gabriel Seth i'd say. hope that helped.
