Alright, so I took 2nd place in a tourney this past weekend and learned a lot. I don’t think we need a shooting presence beyond objective holders - I think our melee units provide all the punch (haha) we need. I also think cpt slam is now a distraction- he did NOTHING in two games for me (now one game he was definitely incredible). But the Sanguinor and company were the stars for the rest of the games. That said here is what I’ve come up with - I’d love to know what you think!

Looks fine to me! The only change I would make is to switch the Scouts to knives instead of bolters.

My only other question would be to ask why vets over more Guard or DC? I find them disappointingly squishy even with storm shields as with only 1 wound, you’re just a few bad rolls from a dead squad. You can take cheap vets as ablative wounds (which you’ve done), but that’s an expensive solution.

Assault Terminators with hammers and shields might be better option. I know the conventional wisdom is that terminators are too expensive to be worth it, and the lack of jump packs means that they’re only a threat in DS and they can’t use Descent of Angels, but the added 2+ base save and extra wound make them much tankier than vets and a good distraction carnifex. Problem is that a squad of 5 is 205 points so you’d need to find that in your list, which would be tough.

How do you feel that the jump pack Librarian performs for you? Interesting that he has the Icon of the Angel. I have been running a Chaplain with Canticle of Hate and the Icon of the Angel, with some good success. I like the idea of that Librarian build thought, so would love to hear some success stories or input you might have.


So fear not and be proud, for we are the sons of Sanguinius, the protectors of Mankind. Aye, we are indeed the Angels of Death.

So I actually played a version of this list this weekend and won - pretty much tabled my opponent by T3. I really liked the Libby though I’m considering switching him to a priest. He was able to keep up and casting unleash rage on my dc, in conjunction with the Sanguinors aura was absolutely brutal. But a priests S buff might’ve been more beneficial - especially considering how many attacks we already have T3 😂

The icon helped immensely though!
