i've been looking through this site and noticed that alot of the marine players here play blood angels, why is that?
Hell hath no fury like the Sons of Sanguinius. Blood Angels are a very aggressive in your face close combat oriented army. That and the back story had a lot of appeal to me personally.
I guess the free codex might have something to do with it. I just think they're awesome
My self I'm an old Blood Angel player mostly because I used to be a power gamer and there was not better force than Blood Angels. Just having Furious Charge on every model made them kinda overpowered, ontop of that they had the red thirst which could get you an extra D6 movement. Then the 6 dreadnought / droppod combo was so great as well. Or the free Death Company, that got a power fist/power weapon for free when you lost a sergent to the black rage? (Just to compare.. Scout sergent 26p.. Death Company model with jumppack, 2A base, powerfist. About 55p. So you lost a 26p model and got a 55p model for free instead.. oh no.. the horror.. )
Well.. nowadays they've been nerfed quite alot but I still like them for the fluff and story, and they have what's in my oppinion the coolest Predator tank of all. And they just look good on the battlefield while they still pack a hell of a punch.
I became a Blood Angels player simply because there was an army on sale on Ebay when I wanted to start Space Marines.
Soon I found out, however, that Blood Angels could be played the way I want to play Orkz, that is to rush into close combat and tear everything down. All those units with Jump Packs and turbocharged Rhinos are just too good to miss.
Furthermore, the fluff behind the Blood Angels is great. No other Primarch has died for the Emperor so he could place the killing blow on the traitor. Not many Primarchs have helped at the defense of the Palace. Our Chapter has the oldest living Chapter Master, Mephiston is the most powerful psyker alive and the legends of Tycho are the stuff you're going to tell your grandchildren. It's just great to be a son of Sanguinius.
