So I’m stepping back into 40K and into 8th Edition for the first time. I’ve always loved the Blood Angels, just never picked them up as I was preoccupied with my Space Wolves in past editions and then the Space Wolves and Night Lords in 30K. While I may still roll with the Blood Angels, I find myself drawn to the fatalistic heroism and savagery of the Flesh Tearers. I thought I’d put a list together and see what you guys saw that I may have missed.

As far as my strategy goes, it’s not especially complicated. Cretacian Born Captain and Chaplain go with the Death Company and move up one flank. Merciless Butcher Captain and the Librarian go with the Sanguinary Guard and move up the other flank. Troops move forward and grab objectives. Leviathan moves up the middle, providing cover fire for the troops and punching to death anything tough that tries to challenge the board’s center. Rapier launcher blasts away, and the Xiphon handles enemy fliers and anything too fast for the jump packs to head off. Thanks for looking!
