    First ever try at Blood Angels... Be gentle...

    Well, here goes nothing:

    HQ
    Commander Dante

    Corbulo

    Elites
    8 Veteran Assault Marines
    Powerfist
    2 Melta Guns
    270

    9 Death Company
    Jump Packs
    230

    Troops
    10 Assault Marines
    Powerfist
    275

    10 Assault Marines
    Powerfist
    275

    5 Tactical Marines
    Plasma Gun
    Drop Pod
    180

    Well, the strategy is to advance full pelt with the Assault Marines and Death Company. Then drop down Corbulo into the heart of the enemy, which will allow my Assault Marines to take on most foes, especially if Dante is still there (basic troops getting 3 S5 attacks, re rolling misses and hitting on 3's most of the time....).

    Only think bothering me is anti tank, however, i should hopefully be able to take them out with meltas/combat.

    i think this list is solid but i agree with your statement in that your lacking anti-tank power. i would suggest you switch the meltas from the vetran assault marines to the tac squads. in application, you want your vet assault squad in combat as much as possible, where the meltas are least effective and taking away an attack each from combat. if there on the tac squad, it should free up your vets for killing even more in CC. plus your tac squads can spit up and run around with the fists and melta guns.

    on a personal note, i dont quite agree with using 2 special characters. espicially the blood angels ones. there are very cheap compared to there replacments. you can get away with one most of the time, but you wont have to many happy opponents when using 2.

    The BA special chars really are very good. But unfortunately Corbulo is the only way to give Furious Charge back the Blood Angels in any way shape or form. Since for some reason they lack the ability to take veteran skills. (Just don't take Corbulo near Mephiston =P People tend not to like if he assaults at I7 S6 >> not that they like if you ever bring him anyway =/)

    If you are to bring Dante though, I've found that taking an honor guard with his chapter Banner upgrade makes him worth even more. As it will give all your troops in range an extra attack. Dante now in the 5th ed rules is a really great Army Buffing character. So your normal troopers would have four attacks with preferred enemy, even four fist attacks again! On the charge. The vets and DC would then have five. Which is plenty nasty.

    Perhaps shift the tactical squad to the honor guard, with Corbulo.

    For ranged Anti tank you could also possibly try a Squad of Attack bikes. But where you shifted the points from is up to you.

    i just noticed too, that your death company should be 195 points.

    I dont really like the idea of JP DC with corbulo. They are eventually going to be outside his range of control, but i guess if you make sure to position them correctly they are going to go where you want in the end.

    Dante + Corbulo is a very strong combo however, I would probly go with the honour guard and the chapter banner as stated, and probably take the DC without JP's in a rhino with Corbulo. But thats just my personal preference.

    Looks pretty solid however, you could use a MM AB or 2 for AT.

    Taking 2 special characters is rather cheeky, but they make such a deadly duo. Dante in 5th Ed is one of the best HQs in the game, esp if you have Honour Guard with Chapter Banner.

    Corbulo is good as he is the only way to get Furious Charge (apart from being DC) in the BA army. One very cheeky tactic I saw was having Corbulo in a rhino with VAS flying next to/behind it. This meant they were within 12" of Corbulo but he wouldnt get into battle, Race to the battleline and hunker down.

    I think it is a better cost of money having DC in a rhino/razorback as they are more protected and if you dont have corbulo nearby they wont jump into a forest and die (thats happened to me before).

    I think 5th Ed means instead of Lemartes being on every battlefield, it will be Dante. Which I think is a good thing coz he's a kick ass character!!!
