Default 1500pt Wolfwing Or Blood Angel All Jump Back Army?

Iím looking to move away from my mech guard and tzeentch daemon armies and trying something different, so Iím looking to make a small elite marine army. So far this has lead me to two choices all terminator Wolfwing or all jumpback Blood Angels.

STRENGTH - The Wolfwing list
275 - Logan Grimnar

232 Ė Loganís Bodyguard

Wolf Guard with Terminator armour, thunder-hammer and storm shields,
Wolf Guard with Terminator armour, chain-fist and storm shields,
X2 Wolf Guard with Terminator armour with 2 Wolf Claws and melta-bombs.
35- Drop Pod

275- Wolf Guard Terminator Squad

Wolf Guard with Terminator armour, power weapon and storm shield,
Wolf Guard with Terminator armour, wolf claw and combi-melta,
Wolf Guard with Terminator armour, wolf claw and combi-flamer,
Wolf Guard with Terminator armour, thunder hammer and combi-plasma,
Wolf Guard with Terminator armour, chain-fist, combi-plasma and a cyclone missile launcher.
35- Drop Pod

275- Wolf Guard Terminator Squad
(Same as above)
35- Drop Pod

275- Wolf Guard Terminator Squad
(same as above except 1 combi-flamer instead of combi-plasma)
55- Drop Pod: Missile Launcher

Total Pts: 1497
Total No: 20 (4)
Kill Pts 9


The standard squad is equipped with weapons for every type of enemy, with the storm shields guy taking the AP2 hits. I only had enough points to have one drop pod missile launcher so I changed 1 of the combi weapons to a flamer to make the unit more anti-horde.

My only worry about this list is the numbers; I didnít expect many models for an all terminator army but only 20 models with no FNP or extra toughness. I do like the idea of being able to spend a lot of time painting each model of the 20 terminators but can this list work on the board?

------------------------------------------------

SPEED - The Blood Angels Jump Back List
220 - Astorath The Grim


165 - 2 Sanguinary Priest: Both with Jump backs and 1 with Power Sword

240 - 10 Man Assault Squad: Meltagun, Flamer and Sgt with Power Fist & Hand Flamer.

240 - 10 Man Assault Squad: Meltagun, Flamer and Sgt with Power Fist & Hand Flamer.

240 - 10 Man Assault Squad:
Meltagun, Flamer and Sgt with Power Fist & Hand Flamer.

240 - 10 Man Assault Squad: Meltagun, Flamer and Sgt with Power Fist & Hand Flamer.

155 - 10 Scout Snipers: Camo cloaks

Total Pts: 1500
Total No: 53
Kill Pts: 8


With the all models able to move 12 itís very agile and able to take a beating thanks to the FNP saves the priests will provide. I like how the 4 Assault Squads can become 8 small Assault Squads to better claim objectives, harass the enemy and allow the army to absorb more firepower on the whole. I choose Astorath because he a nasty monster killer and gives the squads fearless + furious charge on a roll of 3 or less.

Sadly I couldnít afford the 5 full squads I wanted so I had 155pts left to spend, I did consider a tactical squad for sitting in my deployment zone with a heavy weapon but I need a full squad to take one so I settled for some scout snipers though IĎm tempted to replace it with a 5 man assault squad.

So what are your thoughts on the each list and which do you think would be the better investment for a marine army?

Thumbs up

okay, i'd personaly go with the first list as not many people will be able to kill you although the funny thing is my mate took out my other mates termies (ten man squads added extra men)both squads with simple lasguns strength 3 ap- so you know you my not be as invunerable as you think, but other than that it just suites my play style for marines that way.

By the way the killing marines with lasguns isn't and wasn't just a fluke he can keep doing it
