Back on topic, I love Warhammer 40k, I am not so much a fan of the fantasy, while the models are cool; nothing beats the brutality and tactics of 40k! With that said I enjoy all aspects of the 40k universe; from the novels, comics, fluff, models, video games, and even the movie (let us not speak its’ name). I have always enjoyed my immersion in the universe as a whole, even during my tabletop hiatus.
Now I am back! I have been playing 5th edition ever since a buddy and I picked up the AoBR set at a local store back in April. He took the Orks, I took the SM, and together we set about on a journey that has led us to many glorious bloody battles! After a few months, we built our own custom tables and terrain; the 40k bug had bit me again!
Blood Angels have always held a special place in my heart since 3rd edition. It really came down to one model, Commander Dante. He was honestly the most B.A.M.F. I had ever seen. Once I started to read his fluff, he had to be mine, and so my path to the “Space Vampires” was drawn.
For 5th edition, I have chosen to focus on the JP aspect of BA. My personal Blood Angels army is highly mobile, utilizing JPs for almost every unit. I am a big fan of CC, even to the point where I will throw the security of a game just to get some fresh blood on my chainsword, it’s bad! With that being said, I am going to focus most of my articles around that style of play, mobile and lethal. Mech BA is great for some, but I like the DoA style of BA and have chosen to focus on that.
My current experiences with 40k are with smaller point games (500-1500), I am not a competitive player at all, and have only attended tournaments in a spectator capacity. I do love list building though, I love crunching the numbers and then hypothesizing/testing the effectiveness of builds, it has always been a passion! I also enjoy the art of painting, but to me it is more of a relaxation than a requirement. I paint as well as I can, so don’t expect anything fantastic as Mr. Jawaballs.
Well this was quite a long introduction, I will make sure to possibly just summarize everything, everyone loves bullets right? That may be the way to go in the future. Anyway I leave you gents with a 500 Pt BA JP List (*GASP* ONLY 500 PTS!?!??!). I hope some of you starting with JP BA may find it helpful!
JP BA - 496 Pts.
- 1 Libby w/ JP
- 1 Sang. Priest w/ JP, Meltabombs
- 6 man Assault w/ PF, Melta
- 6 man Assault w/ PW, Flamer
Feel free to send me a message here or on DakkaDakka (where I frequent as MadMaverick76). I am more than happy to help with list building at any point level, just remember my knowledge is better below 2k points, but I am always willing to help.
For Sanguinius! For the Emperor!
