Hey folks! I'd like to give my Blood Angels one last game before the new (and hopefully) epic codex next weekend! I'll be playing my friends Tau list for the first time which i know will have one riptide in it. The rest i'm not so sure.....
I'm also a returning player coming back ready for the new BA codex so my perception of whats competitive is completely askew right now.
Hope you guys can give me some nice feedback! Ill probably be using the same list against Nids and Daemons in the next few days too.

Blood Angels List:

HQ-Warlord – Librarian
jump pack
plasma pistol

Troops:-
10 assault marines
Sergeant w/ pfist
2x meltaguns

I like your list overall, the weakness being you have no answer to flyers but they will not be a common option for most Tau lists, I have never even seen a Tau player take a flyer as of yet tbh.

If I was to change things to make it better, I would drop the scouts, bikes and Baal pred

A 3rd vindicator would prove much better then the Baal.

Drop the plasma pistol for melta bombs on each assault unit, maybe give the power fists to the priests and then the bombs to the sergeants?

Then a 3rd assault marine unit in for the scouts and bikes.

You would be left with 95pts, I would then drop 1 Priest which would give you points for a Furioso dreadnought in a drop pod.

Just my view but your list seems decent as it is good luck.

Not that I don't like Getaroth's points here, but I'd do things a bit differently. I would drop a Scout squad and the Attack Bikes for a third 10-man Assault squad, armed with Flamers (potentially 2x Hand Flamers on the Sergeant because I love that shit) to give you a bit more variety in what your RAS can do.

If you eschew the Hand Flamer idea, this leaves you with 50 points. Let's get rid of that silly Plasma Pistol while we're dropping stuff and the Missile launcher from the Scouts to make it 75 (80 with your current 5 point leftover). With those points, I'd put Stormbolters on the Vindicators, Power Swords on the two Priests (WS5 and all), swap the flame options for projectile options on the Baal, and make the Libby ML2.

If you DO love the dual Hand Flamer idea then I would not make the Libby ML2 but just give him Melta Bombs. The list would be as follows:

Blood Angels List:

HQ-Warlord – Librarian
jump pack
ML2
-or-
melta bombs

Troops:-
10 assault marines
Sergeant w/ pfist
2x meltaguns

10 assault marines
Sergeant w/ pfist

10 assault marines
2x flamers
-or-
sergeant w/ 2x hand flamers

5 scouts
Camo cloaks
Snipers

Fast Attack:
1 Baal Predator
twin linked assault cannon
heavy bolters


Heavy support:-
Vindicator tank - stormbolter
Vindicator tank - stormbolter

Elites:-
Sanguinary priest
Jump pack
power sword
