So I've recently gotten my moms new husband into 40k, and hes taken to the blood angels. We split up an elite kit and get a starter game and he posts some stuff on FB while playing and lo and behold, his friend is quitting and will give him all his Blood Angels stuff. Most is from third edition, and well painted if a little dated. I wrote up what he has in battlescribe to get a points value and its almost 1600 between it all.
Dante and his sanguinary guard are also un-assembled and will be a challenge for his first proper assembly. Swords over axes for them, ya? My main question is what should I recommend he get once he finishes building and painting these? I'm still rusty in this edition and don't want to steer him too wrong and want a little better advice that "get what looks cool".
He likes tanks and heraldry. A couple gladiators in the back? He also gravitated towards the Knights, could one of those fit in well? Or would assembly and such be a little too much for a beginner? Or split the difference and get a couple dreadnoughts? That's where I'm at, a furioso and a Baal to really lean into the BA part of things. Maybe another squad of assault intercessors if points allow.
