1850 Pts - Blood Angels Roster

5 Devastator Squad
4 Missile Launcher

1 Land Raider Redeemer
1 Land Raider Redeemer - Extra Armor; 2x Flamestorm Cannons; Twin Linked Assault Cannon
5 Assault Squad -
Sergeant - Power Weapon; Melta Bombs


1 Mephiston, Lord of Death
1 Mephiston
1 Stormraven Gunship - Extra Armor; Twin Linked MultiMelta; Twin Linked Lascannon; locator beacon
Furioso Dreadnought - Blood Talon with Meltagun

5 Assault Squad
Sergeant - Power Weapon; Melta Bombs
1 Razorback - laser + TL plasma; Extra Armor


1 Sanguinary Novitiate
2 Honour Guard - Storm Shield; lightning claws

Idea being to drop flamestorm land raider via deepstrike using beacons.... burn some enemies and take objective.

Deep Striking the Landraider is a pretty awful idea as you won't get it on the table till turn 3/4 probably. So if you think you can win the game with 300 points off the table, then just don't take it at all and spend those 300 bonus points on something fun.

hmmmm, valid point about deep striking.... but many armies use reserve, outflank to great affect...

anyone have good experience using this tactic?

Some armies do and the ones who do it well have an ability to control their reserves or increase the likelyhood. Like Blood Angels do with Descent of Angels. But that doesn't apply to your Land Raiders.

Ok, adding up what 'boots on table' you have here, I make 21 total, in four squads of five, two of which are NON SCORING units, and your special character which cannot join units. Your only tactical option here is total kill of your opponents army, which is going to be incredibly tough. Have fun tho', and try and maintain a sense of humour when both of your scoring units have been 'popped' by turn two.
