If you've been reading the BA army list area, you'll have learnt that I purchased my Sangy Army yesterday! :)

So, 1500 points of pure gold.

Dante = 225

Sang Guard 1 = 270
- Banner bearer with Powerfist and infernus pistol
- 2 with infernus pistol
- 2 normal

Sang Guard 4 = 245
- 1 Powerfist
- Infernus Pistol
- 3 normal
- Death masks

Sang Guard 3 = 240
- Powerfist and Plasma Pistol
- 2 with plasma pistols
- 2 normal

Sang Guard 4 = 245
- 1 Powerfist
- Infernus Pistol
- 3 normal
- Death masks

Sang Priest 1
- Jump pack
- Power Weapon = 90
- melta Bomb

Sang Priest 2
- Jump pack
- Power Weapon = 90

Sang Priest 3
- Jump pack
- Power Weapon = 90


For the 1750 list, I'm gonna drop the Death Masks, add the Saunguinor, and give the priests hand flamers.

Just some quick pics of the WIP. Will post some decent images later tonight.

You've no idea how close I came to painting the toilet gold and calling it the "golden throne" but thought that might be going too far! :lol:

If I was put in a dreadnought, I would like to have full maneuverability not just waddle waddle shoot waddle punch.

Wow, Dante looks ace with those new jump packs

‘Sanguinius will stand at Eternity Gate with tears in his eyes and acid in his heart, no matter what you and Erebus hope to accomplish at Signus Prime. Remember that, when your gambit there fails. Remember it when you face the Angel on the final day. Remember that I was the one who told you how it would really end.’

*rubs hands together*

If they are anything like your other armies these should be special. What type of gold you going for? Shiny and bright, or dark and weathered?

Congratulations on showing off how ridiculously good the Sang Guard look.
Don't put your trust in revolutions. They always come around again. That's why they're called revolutions. People die, and nothing changes.

How do they rise up?

Yeah, I was contemplating giving Dante a wingy-pack, but this does make the decision for me. That looks pretty Hugo Boss right there.

thats going to be a rather easy army to beat. Cool, but easy to defeat.

Though I would make one recommendation on having your standard bearer not be the man with the power fist...you can spread wounds out better if you have more differently equipped Angles.

We need bigger guns.

The correct spelling is SENSE, not SENCE.

From playing Deathwing for the last year, spreading things out on 1 wound models doesn't work that great.. best to kill off those normal guys first and be left with a melta, banner and fist!

Easy to defeat how?

I really like how Dante looks with the new jump pack! :P

How'd you get your hands on Sanguinor, though? I was told that he wasn't going to be released for a few more weeks...? :P
"Blood for the Blood Go... errrrm, Blood for Sanguinius!"

Basically, if you take awesome and paint it red, you've got Blood Angels.

Ta :)

Well.. he was on the shelf at my GW store. Seems I purchased majority of their stock too B) Also he's on the GW site already, I think it's one of the other characters that isn't released yet.

True lunchb0x... but the fist just makes it look that much cooler.


He also has a Melta Pistol hidden behind his banner :P

Spent my evening cutting out little circles on a piece of cork mat stuff to go on the board pictured, so all the models have a little slot now, the board is also magnetic, so may get me some magnetic tape (I've already stuck pennies to the bottom on the sang guard.. silly me). Stuck a magnet to SANGUINATOR, no chance of him falling over as I travel between tables!

No invuln save like Terminators. Feel no pain helps only with those basic 2+ failures. and what..20 something models? That wont last very long. A fun army to play, yes, effective...not so much.

I'm really intrigued to see how this works mate, especially as I'm running a Dante/Guard list too.

However I'm not taking quite so many upgrades, and one less squad in favour of some Baal Predators and a small Death Company.\

A nice tactic I've found is taking a small unit of DC, which unlocks a DC Dreadnought, which you can then take in a Drop Pod with locator beacon. Causes some carnage on the way down, and provides an anchor for my non-Dante squad angels to descend upon in turn two.

QUOTE (Priest33 @ May 6 2010, 06:10 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
I still think there should be an "Ahhh! My Hip!" rule for Dante. When he deep strikes roll the scatter dice, if a hit is shown he takes a wound as his ganky hip breaks again.

Or perhaps a "Back In My Day....." At the start of the battle Dante must FAIL a leadership test in order to realise the battle is actually happening, if he PASSES the test, remove the model for d3 turns.
