I do love DC...got 22 of them
Is it a campaign that does escalating points levels? You could definitely switch it up and play a Chappy and DC once you're allowed Elites. I absolutely love having Valour's Egde in the DC, it really helps against their 2+ save weakness. Terminators and Mega Nobz destroy them good.

Yeah I was just about thinking along the lines of another dangerous jump troop choice!
I do like a death company, especially to go with my chaplain! Feel no pain and Zealot on a squad of crazy bezerkers! Blood for the blood go... I mean Angels, yes blood Angels is what I meant!
Now it's finish buying, build and paint and I'll be good to go!
Fingers crossed I don't get the dude with a flyer!

|ntaw||I'm not sure I would bother with Raphen's DC squad. Always found it to be a bit too fancy plus I like that the DC doesn't have a Character in there.|

What I've ended up with...
A sanguinary priest with a lightening claw and a jump pack (the winged style to boot)!
Assault squad 2 x Flamer, Vet Ser with Power fist & bolt pistol.
10 man tac squad heavy flamer, melta gun and sergeant with power sword & bolt pistol.
Scout squad with bolters and a heavy bolter.
Finished at 493 points.
I have a death company which I could easily make into Rafen's death company and that would be another troops choice but I'd need some points for them!

Because I got some time,
Priest w. pack, valour's edge
5 man Scout squad - bolters, heavy bolter, cloaks
10 man Tactical squad - heavy flamer, meltagun, power sword, drop pod
5 man Assault squad - flamer, meltagun, power fist
total: 503 points
You've got a few different options to get rid of those 3 points, but there's pretty much the same list you started on but with my suggestions added in.

So drop the inferno pistol from the Sergeant, replace with at the very least a power sword on the priest - I can get that done today!
Buy Scouts with bolters instead and cause some havoc that way.
Assault squad I still feel that going mix of flamer/ melta & power fist is the best option, I have no idea what I'm going up against. If not I'll have to buy a second box so I have the option to go flamer or melta!
As for Cassor I could do, drop the scouts and drop some of the tactical marines, I'd have to free enough points to afford a drop pod to! But I think they drop pod would count as a fast attack and I'm limited to 1 fast attack Choice!

As for your Chaplain, I really only ever use mine in conjunction with Death Company. They're just not really worth it with Assault marines when you can take a Priest for less and buff the squad in a more useful way.
Another swanky option for Troops is Cassor the Damned. I know you play Flesh Tearers but this could be any DC dreadnought really so long as it's equipped the same as his unit entry. When I get a third Furioso I'm going to paint 'Moriar' across the front of mine as a tribute to the original bad-ass himself.

I haven't built the Assault Squad or bought the Drop pod and Scout squad.
The Tactical is built but I could buy another.
I also have the Chaplain with a jump pack.

|ntaw||Are you set on your wargear choices? By this I mean can you play with proxies, do you own other models, is this all set up the only way you could ever love it, etc.|

500 point Blood Angel list
So I'm looking at joining a campaign at my local GW and wanted some advice/ feedback on the 500 points Blood Angels (Flesh Tearers) list that I plan to use!
The rules are as follows, 1 HQ, 2 Troops (more troops can be taken) and 1 Fast attack slot that in total add up to 500 points.
I'm using the Flesh Tearers Strike force in order to potentially gain an assault bonus.
I plan to use a...
Sanguinary Priest with a jump pack.
5 man Assault Squad with a melta gun, Flamer, Veteran Sergeant equipped with a Power Fist.
10 man Tactical Squad with a melta gun, Heavy flamer, Sergeant with Power Sword and Inferno pistol mounted in a drop pod.
5 man scout squad with a combat knives and bolt pistols.
Let me know what you think.
