    Finally moving on from your old post! Well, get a couple of tactical squads and a commander. Also get some Death Guard models, as you need those. As you expand get a BA chaplain, and maybe even a librarian with Quicken and Might of Heroes to be able to give +2D3 Attacks!

    Might of heroes replaces quicken, you cant use them both.
    Mentor of Space Marine Commanders far and wide.

    Efficiency VS Point Cost VS Ease Of Use - Your best bets:

    1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant

    2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers

    3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC

    Death Guard models,

    its Death Company......NOT GUARD&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

    ok where to start...ok

    get a chaplain
    get a box of death company and a blister so you will have 7 models.
    get a tactical squad
    get a scout squad
    and something heavy of your choice but not a land raider or something like that...get like a dreadnought or devestators although i dont recommend devestators becuase there is a chance of loosing them to Death Company.
    you will need a rhino to put death company in or go out and get some jump packs.
    go the rhino because of over charged engins and because of its new rule in the codex.
    P.S. Blood angels rule, the anger lets us ignore wounds ...hehehe

    could always start by reading the 3 other threads within 2 pages heh

    They&#39;re called "Death company" also not death guard..

    To start out you want 2 tactical squads, a chaplain, atleast 8 death company models (With jump packs). That&#39;s the very basic I discourage 500pt games so I&#39;d also buy a third tactical squad and an assault squad

    I wouldn&#39;t go for the Rhino myself considering that the overcharged engines only go 6" straight forward and you cannot disembark after moving past 12". You also pay extra for this ability, and combined with the fact that if the vehicle is destroyed your guys get pinned for a turn (oh lets shoot the expensive guys stuck in the open). At my GW store they had a package of jetpacks which allowed me to convert some of my guys to death company. A Chaplain is a must, both game wise and Blood Angel fluff wise.

    i dont think you can put your chaplain on a bike because he has to have a death company.

    just put them in a rhino or jump packs
