Ok, now I play Blood Angels (as you can tell), roughly 3500pts; and I want more.
I want a more customizable army to fit any enemy I come across. The problem is I don't know what to make/buy! I have 15 marine bodies, many bits, and I might even have enough pieces to build a tank or two! I am still puzzled.
Let me just list what I have:
- Predator Ann.
- Baal Pred (x2)
- 10 honour guard (BA)
- 10 assault marines
- Approx 40-50 tactical marines (loads of bolter marines, 2 plasma gunners, 2 melta gunners, 1 lascannon, 1 plasma cannon)
- About 20 DC
- 2 LST
- 10 man veteran squad
- 2 Rhinos
- 7 Terminators (2 w/ assault cannons)
- 15 scouts
- SM Commander
Thats all I can think of at the moment, but thats mainly what my models are composed of.
My focus is to have an extremely broad range of helpful miniatures to BA, to fit my different opponents.
Now, don't take this as another "what should I buy next?" threads.
Think of it as a "What am I missing thats important?" thread.
By the way, options and prices are limitless.
Well, if you are after something different, how about a vindicator? It will scare the opponent almost as much as the death co. Alternately, you could go some bikes/attack bikes, but you have an assault squad so it might be duplicating a bit. A 3 man bike squad with 2 melta guns will help kill off some serious armour, but losing one to DC would hurt...
Beware the Agapanthers!

Thanks for the comment.
I was thinking of the vindicator, and I am leaning towards that.
I think I will pick it up next time I go to GW.
As for the 3 man bike squad, I actually made an order for them but eventually cancelled it,
I also have a bike army, so i'm actually quite sick of bikes!
Looks like you could use some more heavy weapons. Only a lascannon and a plasma? Missile launchers, heavy bolters, more lascannons, plasma, whatever you want. Meltaguns would be nice, as would vet sarges with powerfists/swords/axes/cheese chunks.
Oh, I'm sorry I forgot to mention I have about 6 vet seargents for my tactical marine squads all with either a power weapon/fist.
The ones thats stay back and fire with the heavy weapon squads are generally armed w/ bp and ccw or a bolter.
Sorry, I didn't mention that. :blush:
Have you considered speeders? I don't ever see any in BA armies, but I don't see why not.

"I have died a thousand deaths, and I will die a million more..."
Ok lots of marines but you only have only one assault squad and a honor guard, so you should definetly get some more
I didn't see any dreadnoughts I have 2 shooty and assault cannon one
Some assault terminators (not tactically sound but look awsome and serve as the greatest distraction I can think of)
