This is my first post on this forum so hopefully I'm doing this right. XD
I have been playing Blood Angels for a while and only ever got to play games less than 1,000 points due to lack of players and their own armies.
In my current build I don't have much and with 7th edition out now (not sure when 8th will be here) I'm re-learning the game. Currently I want to try and expand on my current list. But I don't know what's good if I want to get into the tournament scene.
HQ: Assault on Black Reach HQ
Troops: 3 Tac: Flamer, Meltagun, Missile Launcher (Each squad has one of these, i.e 1st Squ= Flamer. 2nd Squ= Meltagun. 3rd Squ=Missile Launcher)
Elite: Terminators: All have bolt pistols and power fists
Vehicle: 2 Rhinos, 1 Drop Pod
I'm a very big fan of having lots of infantry, but I do recognize the power of having good support vehicles. I'm planning on picking up some assault marines. But should they be death company? As for my dreadnought, should it be furioso or death company? Or get 2? Do I even need a land raider? More Terminators with storm shields and hammers for this variant.?
I also learned that formations are a big thing. So I looked them up and found an interesting one for the Blood Angels. It is a bit pricy but right now I can get anything I need. Its called the Death Company Strike force. It features 3 Death Company Squads, A death company dreadnought, and a death company Chaplin. The formation gives all units in the formation who are 12'' within the Chaplin +1 Attack. So with 30 death company all using Jump Packs that's a lot of attacks. (Or 15 if I can't field that many). I just think it'd be fun to roll lots of dice with lots of units. Would this be a good infantry based army. Not sure what the total points would be here if I added these guys to my current formation.
Thanks for your help!
