Default Blood Angels - 1700 points

Hadn't seen any Blood Angels list posted yet so I started experimenting. Here's my first attempt to make a cool tournament Blood angels list. I'll explain tactics below the list.

HQ

Lemartes
125

Corbulo
100

5 Honour guard w/ jump packs, sanguinary priest, power fist
195

5 Honour guard w/ jump packs, sanguinary priest, power weapon, melta bomb
190

Elites

6 Death Company w/ jump packs
30

5 Terminators w/ assault cannon
235

5 Terminators w/ assault cannon
235

Troops

10 Tactical marines w/ lascannon, melta gun
195

10 Tactical marines w/ lascannon, melta gun
195

Fast Attack

Attack bike with multi melta
50

Attack bike with multi melta
50

Attack bike with multi melta
50

Total: 1700

So the basic plan is this.

The tactical squads split into combat squads, with the smaller melta gun groups advancing behind the termis. Corbulo stays hidden between the two termi units so they get to benefit form his ability to save one model per turn, quite handy on termis.

The honour guard and death company (led by Lemartes) stay close together. The two apothecaries in the honour guard squad should stay within 6" of the death company. Alternatively all three squads can hang back to be used as counter assault. In that case keep the honour guard close to the termis as well and try to let all three assault squads benefit form corbulos grail abilities.

Hm... As I look at this list, at first glance it looks as though there are flaws. However, it becomes apparent upon closer inspection that this is an extremely well-balanced list. SPs so you can advance with fewer caualties, 12 (not sure about Death Company) possible scoring units, objective grabbers, anti-tank, anti-horde... You've got all your bases covered. I can't think of anything to say except well done.

I feel sorry for the guy you play that list against.


*other guy fires everything he has at the DC*
"and 2 wounds fail for my DC, but I'll save em with the exsanguinators... so no ones dies, my turn?."

His tanks are dead, his infantry are gonna die from shooty and assaulty, yea its covered. the only thing that I can see going wrong is pie plates. vindicators, basilisks, other things that are big and nasty plate lobbers, those might put a krimp in your uber blob if you can't kill them fast enough.

I'm glad everyone likes this list. However I think some people misinterpreted what I was doing here.

I do not have, have never had and probably never will have a Blood Angels army.

What I was doing was trying to show people what the new list is capable of, some people were down on it and I wanted to show it made for a very cool, powerful and characterful army.
