As of right now this is what I have of my army, and want to expand it soon, but can't decide what to get, so I need yalls help, alright?
The army is a BA successor chapter, if it helps.
5 death company
21 tactical marines
1 Baal predator
I just cant decide what comes next:wacko: , its so confusing tryin to plan ahead like this.

-It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees-
I don't play BA, but my first thought would be Assault Marines. Lots.
My suggestions are based on my experience in building my blood angels in the past.
What sort of army style are you trying to go for? BA have a few common themes that are seen regularly- lots of jump packs, lots of troops, lots of assault cannons(found in 'nilla marines too) so, if you could illuminate us on how you envision your army to function I think we can give you more pointed advice. BUT, here goes:
You can't go wrong with more troops- BA scout squads are very good, the ability to get up close and possibly assault first turn is nothing to skoff at, tying up your oponent for the rest of your army to get up there and pound their teeth in is a good thing for BA. I used to play with 3 Power armored squads of 7, and 3 10-man squads of scouts, this also helps fill out your DC too.
Some more DC, bring them up to about 10 to 15 for the average BA army of 1500 to 2000 pts.
Be sure to make some sergants, I reccomend one with a powerfist and one with a power weapon to begin with.
Assault marines are great for blood angels!
Anti- armor, either in the form of a predator, or more ball preds for more rending chances are good, speeders are also a good option for this, rear armor rending shots are not to be under estimated.
hope this helps!

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
Two words; Assault Marines. You've got enough tactical, and heavy support and what you're lacking is Fast Attack and with BA Assault Marines are a must. I suggest 2 squads making one of the squads a veteran squad seeing that they get access to alot more armoury equipment like Melta Guns:w00t: . Also, assault marines with the furious charge bonus are amazing in Close Combat against any race. Good luck

A major standby of the majority of BA lists I see are scouts, take those cheapies and they beef up when they DC.
But yes I agree with the others, you'll need assault marines.
