So how do we take them down?
What do we need to watch out for?
and if you could tag Space wolves along with this...
Blood Angels (and Space Wolves) present a big problem for us. It's just so hard for us to compete against the newer codices with all their new toys. Playing pure Grey Knights just isn't feasible anymore as they will outnumber us 2 to 1 and have enough meltas to wreck our Land Raiders. Moreover, their assault units, which are also their scoring units, will out-assault our GK's with their furious charge and feel no pain. With their drop pods or Descent of Angels, they can deepstrike almost anywhere and accurately.
To compete against them, unfortunately, we need help. Ordo Malleus needs to call upon the aid of inducted guardsmen. Shoot them down with massed fire and then stall them with stubborn infantry until our Grey Knight terminators can engage them in cc.
Record: Win - Loss - Draw: Hive Fleet Pandora (New) 32-6-6 Space Wolf 7th Co. 52-11-6
Blood Angels 12-4-2 Daemonhunters 20-8-3
Imperial Guards 12-5-2 Daemons 8-3-2
I vsed the new blood angels today and let me tell you its not looking good for us. I tried pure with 2 Land raiders and when your facing 4 lascannons and 2 plasma cannons just at the back your in trouble. The guy had about 10 meltas coming at me and by turn 3 i was out of raiders . I personaly think though the most broken thing is there deep strike, they just come down and dont have to worry about mishaps (purhaps we will get his rule?). 4 assault squad behind me........... i was wiped off turn 4
I would think that playing radical inquisition might be the way to go, using daemon hosts.
if your lucky and can get Blood Boil to go off near a bunch of them, it would cause some damage seeing as its AP2.
I agree with jy2 about inducting guard, a leman russ would be handy.
Edit: Id also recommend that you check out Scribd.com, look at the BA/SW codex's there so you know what your up against.

So what you are saying is that we need =][= firebase squads with Mystics in the back line?
Deamon hosts are NEVER a good idea outside 'fun' games.
Haven't seen the new BA yet but if its anything like the space puppies dex then we is even more boned. I highly recomend Number 6s army list of inducted guard..... if i can find it..... look in the army list section me thinks. Guard and Grey Knights do mesh very well and they can easily go toe to toe with these new dexs.
Heres hoping GKs become 200pts for a full squad!! *sees squadron of pigs fly by*
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
They are also pretty fast with flying AV13 close combat dreads, AP3 flamers on fast predators, a lot of furious charge and melta weapons. Worth making sure you have a psychic hood against them.
Hit them with GKT.
