    I believe the only FAQ that exists for the BA is tagged on the end of the pdf Codex and answers one question about Death Company and victory points which isn't actually relevant in 5th.

    I doubt GW will release anything allowing the BA to take the new units if their Dark Angels FAQ was anything to go by.

    I doubt they ever will, Blood Angels have their own perks that makes them unique like:

    Overcharged engines
    Baal Predators
    Assault Squads as troops
    Veteran Assault squads
    Jumppacking command squads (Honour Guard)
    Death Company, etc

    They're a little overpriced but still effective.

    Yes, that's what it means. However:

    a) Bolter and Chainsaw has a nice guide that integrates the two Codices with various levels. Depending on the level you pick, you either just standardize the rules to the same level or have full access to the new Vanilla Codex.

    b) Adepticon has a very decent FAQ that regulates Blood Angels issues.

    c) You don't want the Thunderfire Canon, it breaks too easily.

    d) You don't want the Vanguard. Veteran Assault squads are better and cost less.

    e) The BA Codex is free. Why not buy the Vanilla Codex and have the best of both worlds? Depending on my mood/preference, I either play Blood Angels or "Grail Guard".

    f) Because of the Space Hulk rumors, a new BA Codex could arrive earlier than expected. I guess that will answer many questions.

    g) Why have everything that Vanillas have? BA have many toys that make them unique, so let the Vanilla Chapters have theirs.

    veteran assault sqds, Vanguard??? only BA dont get relic blades.

    Baal, in exchange for sternguard,redeemer, land speeder storm and Thunderfire?

    Overcharged engines? an extra little move at a risk, doesnt really tip the balance back!

    You could always just use the new marine codex for your Blood Angels. My space wolves sometimes moonlight as a salamanders style army, nothing wrong with it as long as you stick to the one codex.

    humm furioso, death company, baal, veteran assault Squads only realy lose out on the Relic Blade, but thats not a massive prob, i can still use the models as Death company or Veteran Assault marines..... hummm

    I think the Baal and Rhino's overcharged engines make them very worth it in light of 5th edition rules. Being a fast vehicle (even if it is only on a 4+)carries some serious perks. In an edition where the game is all about claiming objectives the ability to move 18" gives you quite an advantage. With the new defensive weapon rules for vehicles the fast Baal can move 6" and still fire all of its weapons. With the Twin linked assault cannon and two heavy bolter sponsons, that is quite a lot of shots on the move. No other tank can do that as effectively now. Sure regular marines get fancy new toys, but those toys don't always help them win the game. Play to your strengths.
