1500pt Blood Angel list
 
Fluffy and hopefully effective list.

HQ -
Reclusiarch w/ melta bombs (135)

Elites -
Sanguinary priest w/ jump pack (75)

Troops -
x10 Assault squad w/ 2x melta, melta bombs (215)

x10 Assault squad w/ 2x flamer, hand flamer, melta bombs (215)

x9 Death company w/ power fist, drop pod (240)

x10 Tactical squad w/ flamer, missile launcher (170)

x10 Tactical squad w/ flamer, missile launcher (170)

Fast Attack -
Baal predator w/ TLAC, heavy bolters (145)

Baal predator w/ TLAC, heavy bolters (145)

1500 pts

aim is to get assault squads up quickly for objectives hopping between cover with priest to back up, whilst tacticals hold and shoot. DC drop in with chaplain behind enemy forces and Baals come in from reserve.

Any thoughts and suggestions would be great, look forward to your feedback :)

many thanks, elsmiff

Drop all the Melta Bombs to give your priest a Power Sword (remember, he's WS5) and swap the extra hand flamer in your Assault squad for two regular Flamers. Going any further than that and I would be ditching the Tactical squads for Fragiosos in Drop Pods, and I'd love to see two Power Axes instead of a Power Fist in the Death Company but that's a 5 points over for making the 1500 mark.

Aside from that solid list and I'll be thinking about that BA/DA post you made as well, that's by far my favourite combo for T1 DSing fun.

I would agree to the fragiosos but I dont really have the models for it which is why i used tactical squads. and ye, the power weapons would really boost up my close combat abilities.

As for my DA/BA list, this could be a basis. could swap tact squads and preds for some deathwing or ravenwing dont you think?

Thanks a lot anyway, will keep that all in mind :)

I do think, though DC will be costly to include with Deathwing. The way I run those squads they come out to 250/265 points per 5 models, which usually means no frills in the other detachments at this points level. I also prefer White Scars to Ravenwing, but this will all show up in another thread once I get a chance.

Bang on. Love it, and would love to hear how it goes. You're a little soft on the anti armour with all those assault cannons, and those Missile Launchers will go nowhere against many things with armour because they can't blow up anything being AP4. Just get in close and cause some mayhem! I might suggest trying to DS the Melta squad so that if you are indeed up against something with a high AV you can pretty reliably show up right next to it T2 (unless you have some bad dice luck). If you have the models, you could always swap out the Tactical squads for some Devastators and Scouts. I played 4x MLs in one of my first games of 7th in my BA army and it worked out real nice.

My Personal Opinion i have found for BA the Melta Pistol is perfect for some anti tank with it being a pistol it is still handing in a Overwatch and getting ready for a charge but i Agree great list

ntaw 08-06-14 01:56 AM

15 points for a 3" melta range? If you're that close you're charging, and so long as it's not a Walker you should survive with Krak grenades. Normal Melta Guns still get to shoot Overwatch, and having an extra attack in CC is cool and all but I'm not convinced. Where would you fit them into the list, @KeXun ? Typically I play my Melta RAS Sergeant with a Power Fist and the squad deploys via Drop Pod. Love that shit.

I sometimes will use them when I plan on deep striking an Assault Marine squad, kitted out as:

10x Assault Marines
-2x Meltagun
-2x Infernus Pistol

I'll combat squad them with the Meltaguns in one squad and the Infernus pistols in the other.

ntaw 08-06-14 02:30 PM

That's a pretty sweet plan, @Dawnstar . I have done similar in small games, my unbound 500 point list involves a 5 man RAS w/ 2x IP and a MG. Bad dice have caught my Sergeant out front trying to make that 3" melta range making a quick waste of the points, but I hardly hold that against the Gunslinger approach. Plus it's only 5 points more than a Power Fist, which is a hell of a lot more effective a points filler than Melta Bombs somewhere.

elsmiff 08-06-14 04:36 PM

how about swapping the baals for lascannon preds? May offer more long range tank hunting capabilities??
