Hi all. I've been thinking about what I should run now that we've seen such big points drops in chapter approved. I simply found that we were too expensive across the board previously and it was actually turning me off playing. Now we seem a lot more viable which is nice. This is the list I've put together:

 

Battalion Detachment

 

HQ

 

The Sanguinor – 150

 

Terminator Librarian w/Storm Bolter – 112

 

Chaplain w/Angel’s Wing, Jump Pack, Inferno Pistol – 97

 

Elites

 

Death Company x 10 w/Jump Packs, Power Sword x 4, Power Maul x 2, Power Fist x 2, Chainsword x 2 – 242

 

Death Company Dreadnought w/Blood Talons, Heavy Flamer – 125

 

Sanguinary Guard Ancient – 79

 

Sanguinary Guard x 4 w/Encarmine Sword x 2, Encarmine Axe x 2 – 148

 

Sternguard Veterans x 5 w/3 x Combi Melta, 2 x Combi Plasma – 137

 

Troops

 

Scouts x 5 w/Missile Launcher – 75

 

Scouts x 5 w/Missile Launcher – 75

 

Scouts x 5 w/Heavy Bolter – 65

 

Scouts x 5 w/Heavy Bolter – 65

 

Heavy Support

 

Land Raider Crusader w/Multi-Melta – 286

 

Flyer

 

Stormraven Gunship w/Twin Assault Cannon, Twin Multi-Melta, Hurricane Bolters – 338

 

Total = 1994 points

 

With this list I'm trying to balance close combat potential with a solid amount of firepower, especially at close range. Basically I want to get right up in my opponent's face as quickly as possible like any true Blood Angel. The Sanguinor, the Ancient and the Sang Guards will be riding in the Stormraven with the DC Dread. I know this is a very all-or-nothing arrangement but I've found it can have a devastating impact. The Librarian and the Sternguard will be in the LR Crusader. The Chaplain and the DC will be coming in via deep strike, and the plan is to use the Angel's Wing to get the Chaplain into combat first without facing overwatch, followed by the Death Company using the Descent of Angels stratagem. Meanwhile the Scouts can act as nice little road-bumps for my opponents and will hopefully cause some mischief with their heavy weapons. I'd love some feedback!

 

P.S. It's been a while since I wrote a list and having to use both the codex and chapter approved is a little confusing. If I've made any maths errors please let me know!

You have enough for a vanguard detachment in there besides the battalion.
Other then that, let us know how it works out!

Who is your Warlord and what is in the Land Raider?

 

Ok since originally posting this I have actually altered the list. It now looks like this:

 

Vanguard Detachment

 

HQ

 

The Sanguinor – 150

 

Chaplain w/Angel’s Wing, Jump Pack, Inferno Pistol – 97

 

Elites

 

10 Death Company w/Jump Packs, Power Sword x 4, Inferno Pistol, Power Maul x 2, Power Fist x 2, Chainsword x2 – 249

 

Death Company Dreadnought w/Blood Talons, Heavy Flamer x 2 – 135

                        

Sanguinary Guard Ancient – 79

 

4 Sanguinary Guards w/Encarmine Sword x 2, Encarmine Axe x 2 – 148

 

Flyer

 

Stormraven Gunship w/Twin Assault Cannon, Twin Multi-Melta, Hurricane Bolters – 338

 

Battalion Detachment

 

HQ

 

Terminator Librarian w/Veritas Vitae, Storm Bolter – 112

 

Lieutenant w/Grav Pistol and Chainsword – 65

 

Elites

 

5 Sternguard Veterans w/3 x Combi Melta, 2 x Combi Plasma – 137

 

Troops

 

5 Scouts w/Missile Launcher – 75

 

5 Scouts w/Heavy Bolter – 65

 

5 Scouts w/Power Sword and Combat Knives – 59

 

Heavy Support

 

Land Raider Crusader w/Multi-Melta – 286

 

The Land Raider contains the Sternguard Vets, the Lieutenant and the Terminator Librarian. The warlord is the Sanguinor, as this allows the Sang Guards to take advantage of Heirs of Azkaellon. As before, the Stormraven contains the Sanguinor, the Sang Guards, the Ancient and the DC Dreadnought. I actually used this list in a game today against a Guard/Dark Angels army and it ripped them to pieces (actually my first win with Blood Angels over any kind of Guard list since 8th dropped!). However, I'd need to use it more against a wider variety of opponents before casting judgement upon it myself. What do you think?

Ok so I've used the above list in numerous games since posting this. Initially I had great success with it, but I recently suffered a series of pretty comprehensive defeats so it was back to the drawing board. I figured I couldn't keep both the Land Raider and the Stormraven, too much of a points sink, so one had to go. I settled on keeping the Stormraven as it is more mobile, can transport Dreadnoughts and has superior firepower. The new list spreads the assets out a bit more, as previously it struggled for redundancy. Also an additional psyker and more command points. Scout Bikers are a little left field for me as I've never used them before, but for 69 points the anti-horde firepower is impressive. Also enough shots to annoy tougher units and potentially spring a surprise.

 

C&C very much appreciated!

 

Battalion Detachment

 

HQ

 

Captain w/Jump Pack, Thunder Hammer and Storm Shield (WL Trait: Artisan of War, Relic: Angel’s Wing) – 124

 

Terminator Librarian w/Force Axe and Storm Bolter (Wings of Sanguinius, Unleash Rage) - 112

 

Troops

 

5 Scouts w/Boltgun x 3, Bolt Pistol and Missile Launcher – 75

 

5 Scouts w/Boltgun x 3, Bolt Pistol and Heavy Bolter – 65

 

5 Scouts w/Bolt Pistols, Combat Knives and Power Sword – 59

 

Fast Attack

 

5 Assault Marines w/Jump Packs, Chainsword x 3, Meltagun x 2, Melta Bombs and Plasma Pistol – 113

 

3 Scout Bikers w/Shotguns and Twin Boltguns – 69

 

Vanguard Detachment

 

HQ

 

Lieutenant w/Chainsword and Grav Pistol – 65

 

Elites

 

10 Death Company w/Jump Packs, Power Sword x 4, Power Maul x 2, Power Fist x 2, 2 x Chainsword – 242

 

5 Sternguard Veterans w/Power Sword, 5 x Special Issue Boltguns – 84

 

5 Sternguard Veterans w/Power Sword, 5 x Special Issue Boltguns – 84

 

Vanguard Detachment

 

HQ

 

Brother Corbulo – 83

 

Mephiston (The Quickening, Unleash Rage, Shield of Sanguinius) – 160

 

Elites

 

5 Death Company w/4 x Chainsword, 1 x Power Fist – 94

Flyer

 

Stormraven Gunship w/TL Assault Cannon, TL Multi-Melta, Hurricane Bolters x 2 – 338

 

Total = 1996

 

For the avoidance of doubt, everything in the second Vanguard detachment rides in the Stormraven, except the Stormraven itself obviously! Also I'm pretty sure I've included all the right ingredients as far as Slamguinius goes but please let me know if I need to change anything, I've never used him before.
