Hey,

The first things you should get are the Space Marines codex (if you dont have it), the old Blood angels codex if you can find it and the Blood angels FAQ which can be downloaded at: http://uk.games-workshop.com/spacema...Dangels%2Dfaq/

Each unit in an army's force list is categorised as either HQ (the command / leadership of the army), Elites (usually stronger, more powerful warriors), Troops (the core warriors that usually make up the bulk of the army), Fast Attack (warriors or vehicles that excel in mobility) or Heavy Support (usually warriors or vehicles with powerful, long range weapons). A standard army must have at least 1 HQ unit and 2 Troops units. After that, it may have an additional 1 HQ choice, 4 Troops choices, 3 Elites, 3 Fast Attack and 3 Heavy Support.

I recommend starting out a Blood angels army with 2 10-man Tactical Squads with a couple of rhinos and a captain with Honour Guard. The tactical squads will use the 2 mandatory troops choices, and the rhinos will allow them to quickly get into close combat as is where Blood angels excel. A veteran sergent (Sergeant with Terminator Honours) with a Power Fist in each of the tactical squads will give them more wounding power against armoured foes. The Honour Guard will use up the mandatory HQ choice and will have alot of mobility with their jump packs. The Death Company is randomly formed at the start of each battle, so it is also handy to have a couple of them. From that point onwards, it is really up to yourself what way your army grows, but I would suggest getting a large Assault squad and either a Dreadnaught or Terminators for some fire support.

Good luck!

try 2 tactical squads, a chaplain and 2 assault marine boxes first...that'll give you the required 2 troops choices (the tactical squads), and one decent sized assault squad...after that, and the codex, you can sort out what you want next (tho death company would also be a good idea)

death company are random, so you don't actually get to choose how many you have. however, it might be a good idea to have 10 death company models on standby, for when you do find out how many you'll have
