Ok, so red marines it is. I'm thinking Ravenguard tactics for the skyhammer, what about the CAD, Ultramarines? Define better scouts, please. I already miss living in a city with a GW store, I could actually talk about this stuff in real life, not bothering people constantly here I'm really sorry for being a pain in the ass!

While I am willing to weather the storm and bring my codex-specific BA out to competitive play outside of tournaments, not many are. Red marines have way better Formations at the moment.

Which won't make a difference for the 20 Devastator marines that started in a Transport and little difference to the Assault squads who will be in combat and already have the Jump Pack ability from the Formation special rules. Why not Ultramarine Tactics for everyone?

WS4/BS4 Scouts are quite better than WS3/BS3 Scouts, considering they cost the same.

Not a bother at all man, I have access to gaming locally but rarely have the time to put towards being there these days. Heresy is where I typically chat hobby.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Thanks dude! Always nice to see some more Blood Angels players come out of the woodwork with their lists, red marines or not. After seeing how dieseled Marines and Dark Angels got, not to mention the 'Codex: Angels of Speed' Kauyon book for White Scars and Raven Guard, I anticipate more interesting Formations than what Shield of Baal: Exterminatus offered us somewhere down the pipe line. Cool that we have a Character Dreadnought at Troops in the shape of Cassor the Damned now though, it's fun if you like Dreadnoughts everywhere.

With the new BA chaplain model, can I add a chaplain with a jump pack to the formation as my HQ?

There's been a bit of debate about that, honestly. If you took a Chaplain (such as in your CAD), you could technically attach him to one of the Skyhammer Assault Squads. HOWEVER, most people say that the character wouldn't get any of the benefits (including turn 1 deployment) because it wasn't purchased as part of the formation.

I've gone back and forth with tons of people on this, and there's no relaly strong answer. The Chaplain certainly would NOT get the assault benefits that the Skyhammer does, but I personally feel he'd be able to Deep Strike in with them first turn, because he benefits from the deployment options that the unit he's part of gets.

Works a lot like adding a Conclave Termilibby to the Grey Knight Nemesis Force.
