New Death Company

Ive Played Blood Angels since 2nd Edition, and have well over 10K, There a Pretty Bad Ass group but, there back to the Black Rage so there weakness is small packs running you DC well out range to be Helpful and generally after weak Non DC worthy targets... I run mine in Either a Land Raider or Nice Shiney New DC Storm Raven, so I can have them Assault out and then if they need them to go another target I can make them get in and drive them where I want them. plus Storm raven gets Mister Fleet of foot DC dread up close and personal as well. I generally have them go Rape Troops & Dread drag the Vehicles to there Deaths.

I have 10,650 Base Points of Blood Angels, I also Have Orcs ad IG Steel Legion Armys.

I know I'm probably insane for posting this, but in Apocalypse games, I flank march a 14 man squad of them, all with JP, a single TH, and a PW, led by Lemartes. 685 points of slaughter.

20 Death company with jump packs $132
Astorath $17
Lemartes $15
Never using them in a successfull game? Really F**king annoying.

Really torn here on how to load out my 10 man squad. All out assault (BP & Chainswords) or Bolters.

They will be in a Stormraven with a DC Dread and also a Reclusiarch. Gonna give one a PF but other than that any ideas - I did have them kitted out with 4 PW nut am now unsure because of the point sink

Any advice is welcome and apols if this has hijacked the OP but it is still relevant to the original question

Well, for one thing the fluff does indeed say so. They actually do, anyway. I charged karandras and 6 scorpians using a termi-chaplain and 7 death co (some dead): karandras killed 2 death co, scorpains killed, not sure how good my luck was, but my first role to hit was out of my 3 Chaplain and 8 death co attacks, 4 vs karandras 4 vs scorpians, i got 3 hits on karandras 2 on others then killed karandras and PF finished the scorpians off mostly, 2 left
Because i re-rolled misses i got 3 extra hits on karandras and 2 (total) on scorpians
Chaplains are not a waste, though the termi armour probably was

Belius, first off great pic. Dont give 4 PW, maybe like 2, can be very useful. ONLY GIVE BOLTERS TO MODELS W/ PF/TH!!! OR YOU WILL BURN IN HELL FOREVER AS A HERETIC if you want give more PF and less PW then you have your bolters. Bolter + PF is great cuz you already lose the extra attack, and they are relentless. For the rest of them use CC + BP

If you go down to the woods today, be wary
