Default 1850 BA Skyhammer

Taking my first shot at building a competitive Skyhammer list, using the, in my opinion, most beautiful space marine models, Blood Angels.

Advice with weapon selection would be appreciated as I have no skyfire at the moment. Strategy is to table turn 1

HQ
Captain Karlaen

Elite
Terminators TH/SS

Troops
2 x Scouts with sniper rifles, missile launchers with flakk

2 x Skyhammer Annihilation Force
4 x Assault Troops, SGT Melta bombs, power sword
2 x Devastators, (8 Gravs with grav amp)
1 x Devastators, (4 multimeltas)
1 x Devastators, (4 heavy bolters)

1847

Thoughts?

Rules as Written, Skyhammer can't use Blood Angels, because the datasheet shows the sword-and-wings symbol, which is generic Codex: Space marines, not the blood-drop-and-wings symbol for Blood Angels.

I can't comment much on the rest because I don't know the Captain's stats.

I'm just using the models, not the rules for death company or anything. They are basically red marines. The CAD is Blood Angels though, to get the +1 for seize from Karlaen. It's a legal list.

Allied Detachments can't be your Primary, so Kaptain Karl can't be yer Warlord.

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

Can you explain this please? It's showing up as legal in Battlescribe. It's a basic SM force with a named Warlord. I'm new to SM so I apologize.

Battlescribe is not a rulebook, lots of that stuff is wrong. The section describing Allied Detachments on pg. 122 of the BRB states that they cannot be your Primary Detachment and your Warlord can never be from it.

I have 1 HQ, 2 troops and 1 elite. What am I missing here? That's the CAD make up. Not doubting you, just don't understand.

My apologies, the way it was worded before made it look like there was only one Scout squad so I assumed it was an Allied Detachment.

No worries mate! I actually changed it after thinking that was the problem Now that we have settled...tell me what you think of the weapon selection! I like your 2K list,and will probably run something similar if the skyhammer doesn't work out.

The only thing in your list that has any BA flavour is Karlean and from a rules standpoint he is pretty lame. Why not just take a SM CAD of the exact same thing (almost) with Chapter Tactics and better Scouts? This list obviously is about winning, and that BA CAD/BSFD is not a winning choice in my eyes.
