Hey Jawaballs, how have you been?
I haven't messaged u in a while since I haven't had anything too important to say lol.
Anyways, I just picked up a Blood Angels Dex and a couple Baal Preds and Vindis just to try something different from my Space Wolves. So far I really like the list tho I am not too much of a fan of the Asscan Baal and i'll probably end up trying the flamer variant. Anyways I just kind of wanted your own "professional" Blood Angels opinion on my list.
Well, here it goes...
3x Furioso Dreadnoughts with undecided weapons all in Drop Pods
6x of this troop choice
5 man Assault Squad in Razorback with TL Las
3x Baal Predators with either Asscan Combo or Flame combo
Ok so that's my 2500 list. Hope it's not too rushed lol. Also, may I add that the points only come to about 2250 so do you think I should take an Honor Guard Squad in another Las Razorback? Or Maybe the Sanguinor as an HQ? Anyways thats it for now. Thanks for any help you can give me.
Take care, Mark
Hey Mark, thanks for writing! From a strictly competitive do or die point of view, I have a few suggestions. Forget the pods. Drop pod assault will mean that two of them have to come down round one, and will either find nothing to shoot, or come out of their pods surrounded by melta guns and take it in the ass. Without Venerable to force rerolls, they are dead. Make them all Librarians instead and run them up behind your Baal Preds or Razor wall.
Mephiston? I love him, but drop him. Take a regular libby and throw him in one of the Razors. Spend the extra 150 points buying your dreads the libby upgrade. Oh, and give them shield of sang and wings.
Flame or asscan? Have faith in your wargear private! Go with the Asscan. Maybe take one flamer. They work wonders against Eldar seer councils if you can catch em on the table first turn.
Vindicators or Predators? That is up to your taste. Both are good, but I feel predators with auto cannon/las sponsons are superior. Give your tanks Hunter Killer missiles, as many as you can fit in.
No, your army will not be an assault freak. But you ahve enouth redundancy to take heavy losses and still keep shooting, and enough hard hitting punch to do a lot of damage, for a couple rounds, cover saves be damned! Your dreads will have to handle the assault punch. Support them with your squads that you should upgrade with PWs and Meltaguns. Get a priest in there to give your dreads FC.
That should get you in nice shape!
