BA 1500pts for tournament on Sunday

Hi all,

I'm thinking of taking the following list to a tournament on Sunday. The list is basically set in stone because it's all of the models that I have, but any advice on what I have would be appreciated. The only other option is to run an Ork list which I may post in the other thread. Thanks in advance.


Mephiston 250pts


2 Sanguinary Priest w/ Jump packs 150pts

1 Chaplain w/ melta bombs 105pts


2 x 10 man assault squad w/ jump packs, 2 meltas, and a power fist 470pts

10 Death Company w/ 2 power weapons and 1 thunder hammer 260 pts

1 Land Raider Reedemer w/ extra armor and multi melta 265 pts

The list is exactly 1500pts. The 2 priest each run with an assault squad; I'm not planning on deepstriking the assault squads. I think they will start on the board. DC and Chaplain go in the land raider. I gave the Chaplain melta bombs because I had 5 pts to spare. Mephiston just does his thing.

I think at this points value your model count is far too low. I'd drop the Chaplain and put one of the Sanguinary Priests in his place, removing the Jump Pack. I'd also choose a normal Land Raider over a Redeemer. The Multi Melta is the only anti-tank gun you have, and if your target is out of range then it's pointless; Lascannons would be more effective.

I'm back and creating signatures once again. If you need an avatar, signature, artwork or anything just drop me a PM or go here: My Graphics Workshop

If I drop the Chaplain then the DC don't get to re-roll misses for hits and wounds. The Chaplain makes them a lot more effective.
