Second Try At Blood Angels, 500pts

Hello everyone, Im new to Heresy Online, and this is my second try at making a decent base for a Blood Angels army. Here goes:

HQ
Librarian 125pts
JP
Sword of Sanguines, Might of Heroes

Troops
Assault Squad 5mods 125pts
Melta
Sgt. w PW

Assault Squad. 5mods. 180pts
Melta
Sgt. w PW
Razorback w TL Plas, Lascannon

Fast Attack
Land Speeder. 70pts
MM, HF

Total: 500pts
Libby goes with the first assault squad, swaps between Sword and Smite depending on the situation. 2nd assault squad advances to support. The landspeeder makes a nuisance of itself.

There isn't really anything wrong with it. Personally I would rather have assualt cannons on the razorback although

Everything I've ever done comes down to the roll of this one dice... and it was a 1

Eh, the Las/Plas gives him some flexibility to handle either infantry, light transports or even heavy armor.
With those last 25 pts, I would add another Assault marine and give the SGT melta bombs.

500 points is really rough, Especially for Blood angles.

The librarian is a sold choice for BA, but i would consider dropping might of heroes for blood lance, smite, or shield of sanguinius


I would consider either going jump jet or mech with your troops.

I have played both styles(jump angles and mech) i found that mech just survives a little better...but the jump jet versions when you field them look cooler in my opinion and are a bit more fun to play.

I took the Las/Plas as my main oppenents are MEQs. I like the combination of high Str low Ap shots. However an assault cannon is also versatile, and the # of shots is a bit better. Interesting.

Ill toss in another marine, and also some MB.


I agree with it being tough for BA at 500. Im actually going for a mix of mech and JP for diversity. At higher points I will probably pick one or the other. As for the psychic powers, I was thinking about smite as it compliments the bolt pistols, but the blood lance would better support the melta. What to choose?

Thanks for the help so far guys.

Not too shabby!! How about using the extra points to upgrade to the Typhoon Speeder w/HB. Very Versatile and mobile, move 12/deep strike and fire 2 krak missiles or fire two frag missiles and HB for horde. i've never been a fan of the Melta/HF set up but that"s just me.

As far as the razor goes I like the LC/Plasma version here its a little more durable with the two weapon systems. Good Luck

I had a bit of a points miscalculation and i ended up with exactly 500, instead of the 475 I had thought earlier.

Thanks. The TML and HB landspeeder isn't too bad of an idea. Good long range supporter, another interesting idea.
