This is fantastic news! My Blood Angels have been shelved lately due to Death Company being so lackluster right now.

I think Emperor's Children would be a better mirror, since they are basically try-hard wannabe Blood Angels.

"Sometimes the Imperium needs heroes, sometimes saints and other times it needs monsters, for the dark void of the stars is cold and has bred nightmare and treachery most could never dream of. So when some call him tyrant, world-burner, apostate and butcher, remember this: He commanded armies on a hundred worlds and spanned cursed stars where saints would fear to tread, and in doing so held back the night. Monster he may have been, but he was ours and I for one thank the God-Emperor for him." - Inquistor Marr, Speaking of Lord-Errant Cromhal, Supreme Commander of the Aegisine Crusade, M.39

I do recall Frontline gaming talking about how codex Blood Angels are, in their opinion, the best assualt army. I seriously cannot wait for this codex.

I anticipate price drops all around and am hoping for special stratagems, warlord traits and relics for Blood Angels, Death Company and Flesh Tearers.

Hopefully that means they can use assault effectively, as in 8th it is SORELY outclassed by shooting.

If recent form is anything to go by, pretty much straight after the Nid codex drops.

Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.

Well they also thought BA would maybe be OP with all their Character buffs in the Index. We know how true that turned out to be and later they turned back on what they said even. Not giving much on what they think about BA to be honest. :D

To be fair, I think many of their index thoughts were very much colored by their codex thoughts. They were testing the codexes before the indexes were released and I saw multiple instances of them talking up a lucklustre index unit because it is solid in the codex. They aren't perfect still, and they can be a bit overly optimistic about GW, but I remain hopeful.

While I agree that this is close to blasphemy. I completely understand where Charlo is coming from. I've put my Blood Angels on hiatus until I got the codex. I just really hope I can do what I want with my heavy flamer devastators. If not, I'll be really disappointed. :/

 

I'll be buying both codexes regardless though!

I'm kinda in the same boat. I have my Knights of Blood started but so far haven't really dedicated much ressources to them. Whether that'll change soon or not entirely depends on the Codex. If I don't enjoy what I'm seeing I'm going to concentrate on my T'au and Slaanesh army until either BA get more awesome stuff or Emperor's Children get a release. ^^

Unfortunately, while my love of 40k started with Blood Angels, followed soon after by Raven Guard, Thousand Sons, and Space Wolves, I plan to run Primaris, who don't fit so well into BA until we get some assault units.

I'm using primaris blood angels just fine!

With the likely lower points costs inline with chapter approved they're more viable and all have a good number of attacks. Depending on actual chapter tactic I totally wee it working.

IF that leak turns out to be true. We still have ways to go to December. For all we know they cost 100ppm right now. It seems believable, which is the perfect trap where treachery will get you. Be always aware of heresy. It lurk where you least expect it. Seriously, I found some in my closet the other day Oo
