The idea is to combat squad the termies, giving each group a HQ and a terminator Sang. Priest;
these are each placed into a stormraven. The troops follow behind to assist assaults and claim objectives.


or list # 2



2000 Pts - Blood Angels Roster

HQ: Librarian (1#, 125 pts)

1 ...in Terminator Armour (might of heros, shield of sang.)

: Land Raider Crusader (1#, 260 pts)
1 Land Raider Crusader, Multi-Melta

: Grey Knight Hero (6#, 425 pts)
1 Grand Master [OM], Psycannon Bolts
5 GK Terminator retinue(s) [OM], Incinerator

Elite: Sanguinary Priest (3#, 235 pts)
1 Sanguinary Priest in Power Armour Jump Pack
1 Sanguinary Priest in Power Armour Jump Pack
1 Sanguinary Priest in Terminator Armour

Troops: Assault Squad (10#, 235 pts)
7 Assault Squad
1 Assault Marine with Meltagun
1 Assault Marine with Meltagun
1 Sergeant Power Fist

Troops: Assault Squad (10#, 225 pts)
7 Assault Squad
1 Assault Marine with Meltagun,
1 Assault Marine with Meltagun,
1 Sergeant Power Weapon

Troops: Assault Squad (11#, 250 pts) (jump packs removed)
7 Assault Squad
1 Assault Marine with Meltagun,
1 Assault Marine with Meltagun,
1 Sergeant Power Fist
1 Rhino

Fast Attack: Attack Bikes (2#, 100 pts)
2 attack bikes with multimeltas

Fast Attack: Baal Predator (1#, 145 pts)
1 Baal Predator, Heavy Bolter

All the HQ's, retinue, termie priest all in landraider, riding up the middle. The assualt squads
hit targets of opportunity and objectives, predator is anti infantry and the bikes are anti armour

My opponent will be a vanilla marine, sure to see vanguard vets in a drop pod with combi plasma, lots
of named hq and the orbital bombardment accompaning them...

Any thoughts, I'm leaning to list #1, but welcome all input!

I'm a little leary of the 1 rhino equipped squad, along with the land raiders will be a major target for anti-armour weapons, then you're left with a unit foot slogging across the field. But still, both lists look fun to play, I just prefer to have a more mech oriented list.

20 Death company with jump packs $132
Astorath $17
Lemartes $15
Never using them in a successfull game? Really F**king annoying.

Alright, a third option:

Total Roster Cost: 2000

HQ: Reclusiarch (1#, 165 pts)
1 Reclusiarch, 0 pts
1 ...in Terminator Armour, Combi-Meltagun

HQ: Librarian (1#, 125 pts)
1 Librarian, 0 pts
1 ...in Terminator Armour, (might of heros, shield of sang.)

Elite: Terminator Assault Squad (10#, 435 pts)
2 Terminator with Lightning Claws
7 Terminator with Thunder Hammer & Storm Shield
1 Sergeant, Lightning Claws

Elite: Sanguinary Priest (3#, 245 pts)
1 Sanguinary Priest in Power Armour, Jump Pack
2 Sanguinary Priest in Terminator Armour

Troops: Assault Squad (10#, 235 pts)
7 Assault Squad
2 Assault Marine with Meltagun
1 Sergeant, Power Fist

Death Company (395)
5 Death Co, 1 power fist, 2 power swords in
1 Land Raider Redeemer

Heavy Support: Stormraven Gunship (1#, 200 pts)
1 Stormraven Gunship, 200 pts (TL multimelta, TL auto canon)

Heavy Support: Stormraven Gunship (1#, 200 pts)
1 Stormraven Gunship, 200 pts (TL multimelta, TL laser)

Granted, I now only have 1/2 scoring units... would require my wiping him out to win in most games....

I guess list #1 is still the front runner, but this one has 3 squads of death, such bloody fun!
