1500 point BA army list

I posted my list ideas a couple weeks ago and got some good feedback, but now I wanted to share my final army list with you guys for any last suggestions.

__________________________________________________ ______________


Librarian w/ combi-melta -110 (will join death company in storm raven)


Sanguinary priest w/jump pack (maybe power sword) X2 -150 (to join assault squads)

Furioso Dreadnaught W/ blood talons-135


10 man assault squad w/ 2 meltas and sergeant with a power fist -235

10 man assault squad w/ 2 meltas and sergeant with a power fist -235

10 death company w/ 1 power weapons (in storm raven)


Storm Raven Gunship W/ hurricane bolters (don't know if i should change the other weapons) -230

Predators w/heavy bolters X2 -200

I also might replace the predators with something else like devastators.

Why a librarian and what powers does he have? Not saying the hood is useless now, but it was severly nerfed. Plus i wouldn't put him with the DC, as they are looking to get into CC quick. I would give them Lemartes fo more effectiveness or at the very least a CC oriented captain.

I would give the storm raven the TL Las and TL MM. BA are not really long range as is, but what support you do have are just some heavy bolters.

Personally i would exchange the preds for baal preds. And also wouldn't take the devs. they are pretty much immobile and it kind of ruins the cynergy of your mobile army.

You can use the points from the storm raven part i mentioned to get you a CC oriented HQ, maybe drop a DC or two to get the baal preds.

Everything else looks pretty good to me.

People take time to comment. So reply in kind

I like the idea you're going for here but I'd question a few things.

The PF sarges will get hammered in challenges since they strike last. PF does give you some MC killing ability but tactically I'd think you'd see more challenges than MCs.

I've had great success with 10 man melta squads like you have but I run them with Dante for the tactical precision drop. This ensures you drop in double melt range. Otherwise you risk deviating into single melt range or a mishap.

I'd also agree that baals are better than regular preds for anti troops and devistators are too immobile for this army. You can snap fire now but that seriously hampers your killing ability.

In the end it's all personal preference and you should go with what fits your style. These are just some notes from my experience with my tactics and play style. Feel free to disregard anything above in part or whole if it doesnt fit your style.

Don't overlook the good old tactical squad. With a transport they can keep up with the assault squads and shoot up any counter assault. Also, the rhino comes in handy for blocking line of sight or stopping counter assaults.
