Default By the Blood Of Sanguinius!

I'm just finishing up my Orks now and the Blood Angels have caught my eye(especially death company).
I'm thinking of playing a 750 point army to start off with, ill be playing alot of Tau who uses alot of AP3 Rail Rifles, some Tyranids, marines, and some Khorne.
If someone could point me in the right way of what to buy and maybe a few idea's for a list, it would be much appreciated.

get rhinos and lots of basicly infantry. if he uses alot of rail rifles your going to be losing infantry quick, and so can't really on expensive stuff. your better of getting alot of squads in alot of rhinos. then charge forward, meltagunning his tanks and then charging his lines as soon as possible. as to what to buy i suggest you write up an army list you like and then buy stuff. armies that are built around a budget dont turn out as well as those based on what you like.

I don't know about Rhinos in a small BA force- don't forget that they're more points.

Scouts and Assault Squads are cooler.

remember to take a chaplain (I know that he is really expensive) and give him a jump pack. Then make sure that all of your death company have jump packs. If the AP3 rail rifles you are talking about are the ones on sniper drones then the death companies feel no pain should absorb a few of the shots. same thing with plasma rifles and most of the guns in the tau armory.

And with the only exceptions being single shots anyway (by that I mean once a turn, not one time only), you should be okay. Just use cover apropriately and you should be in close combat by second turn.

Have you considered Land Speeders? Their agility could be just what you need to close in fast and burn up the Snipers (or gun them down).
