    Blood Angels 1st company

    I want to make a blood angels 1st company list, I know that 1st company is mostly fast attack meaning alot of jumppacks and so on, so this is what I have for the list so far:

    HQ:
    1x Company Captain w/ pair-lightning claws and jump pack

    1x Chaplain w/ plasma pistol and jump pack

    Elites:

    10x Veteran Assault Marines
    1 w/ thunder hammer and storm shield
    1 w/ pair-lightning claws
    1 w/ power fist and combat shield
    2 w/ flamers

    Troops:
    10x Assault marines
    Sgt. w/ power fist and combat shield

    10x Assault marines
    Sgt. w/ power fist and combat shield

    10x Assault marines
    Sgt. w/ power fist and combat shield

    Fast Attack:
    3x attack bikes
    1 w/ multi-melta
    2 w/ heavy bolters

    3x attack bikes
    1 w/ multi-melta
    2 w/ heavy bolters

    Problem is I don't feel like this list resembles a 1st company for blood angels that Dante would prefer, can someone help tweak my list more so that it can form more into a true Blood Angels 1st company? I've never been much on heavy support so yeah lol, anyways...please help me w/ my list fellow brothers

    Black Templars - 9/2/5
    Dwarves - 5/0/3

    if you really wanted to give it a more first company feal, get rid of the attack bikes and make another vet squad with meltas. it will still give you anti-tank while keeping your theme. also you can try putting in a dreadnaught.

    one question, are you opting to not use death company? because it just wasted points if you dont.
    Never give up. Never give up. HIT, HIT, HIT, HIT!

    Wouldn't a first company list contain all veterans, I don't understand why you have normall assault squads in it. I would have though first company would look something like this - -

    captain and chaplain with jump packs

    10 x normal terminators

    20 x assault terminators

    10 x honourguard

    50 x veteran assault marines

    10 x death company

    1 x furioso

    1 x venerable

    2 x dreads

    4 - 6 x Landraiders

    Just my opinion though

    because hes trying to make an army list, not include an ENTIRE 1st company.

    Assault marines are very fluffy, and in the blood angel codex the 1st company is built of experienced assault marines, hence being able to use assault marines as troop choices. No, they arent all vanguard, if you used an army of all vanguard, youd probably get trounced pretty quickly.

    this is a nice median.







    And to the Original Poster, i love the list.

    You should probably drop the shields in the list though. Your sergeants are embedded as is =/

    Attack bikes are a great AT and AH option. Think about splitting them into squads by purpose, and using points from dropped shields to get you a squad of 3 MM attack bikes. consider a Baal predator as well, then toss around some melta bombs + melta guns in liberally.




    Dont forget your death company!

    well there is no points limit suggested, he says it is for dante but is not included, I just presummed that is what he had come up with so far. Sorry about the missunderstanding.

    ah, yeah, i gotcha. Well, its missing alot of things, like those you pointed out for it to be a clear 1st company. Also, its definitely too small to be a company, and it is in the Army list section. Guess the OP will have to tell us which one it is. But hey, if it were to be a 1st company, i think you hit it on the nose

    HQ:
    1x Company Captain w/ pair-lightning claws and jump pack

    1x Chaplain w/ plasma pistol and jump pack

    Elites:

    10x Veteran Assault Marines
    1 w/ thunder hammer and storm shield

    1 w/ power fist and combat shield
    2 w/ flamers

    Troops:
    10x Assault marines
    Sgt. w/ power fist

    10x Assault marines
    Sgt. w/ power fist

    10x Assault marines
    Sgt. w/ power fist

    Took out the combat shields as instructed which gives me and extra 30pts to add a deathcompany model which comes out to 5 death company marines (No I didnt forget the glorious blood raged marines Greatlake and Hurtigca ^_^ )

    Fast Attack:
    3x attack bikes
    1 w/ multi-melta
    2 w/ heavy bolters

    3x attack bikes
    1 w/ multi-melta
    2 w/ heavy bolters

    These 2 squads, I was thinking of splitting instead of 2 squads of 3 to 3 squads of 2 each with 1 heavy bolter and a multi-melta... Y or N?

    I mean, i dunno. It would definitely insulate you from focused fire - you wouldnt have to worry about a melta bike or heavy bolter squad being focused on - but at the same time you loose alot of firepower by doing so - kind of a d@mned if you do... D@mned if you dont kind of a thing i guess - by taking a Multimelta/Hvy bolter squad - you loose a twinlinked bolter and 3 heavy bolter rounds whenever you fire at a tank. I guess it depends on what an opponent will be firing at though - and TBH i dont think your bikes will be taking too much fire with 30 assault marines closing in.

    I'm very surprised to see no terminators in a Blood Angel 1st company list. Blood Angel veterans are famous for their actions aboard spacehulks using terminator suits. They certainly have more place in the list than attack bikes.
    No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
