    Black Dragons 2000pt. List (Using New Blood Angels Codex)

    Alright everyone looking over the new Blood Angels Codex really got me wanting to run an army i have been wanting to do for a long time: The cursed founding Black Dragons Chapter found in the 2004 Chapter Approved. The fluff of the Dragons (primarily that bone blades grow out from their foreheads, forearms and elbows) and the fact they tick off the inquisition made them prime choices for my marine army. This is a first attempt using the new Blood Angels Codex so bear with my it probably will change in the Future:

    HQ:
    -Astorath

    TROOPS:
    Dragon Claws Squad (Death Company)
    -x15 Dragon Claws
    w/ x15 Power Weapons, x3 Infernus Pistols, Jump Packs

    Assault Marine Squad
    -Sergeant w/ Infernus Pistol, Melta Bombs
    -x6 Assault Marines
    w/ x1 Melta Gun

    Assault Marine Squad
    -Sergeant w/ Infernus Pistol, Melta Bombs
    -x6 Assault Marines
    w/ x1 Melta Gun

    -Death Company Dreadnought
    w/ Hvy Flamer (instead of Storm Bolter)

    -Death Company Dreadnought
    w/ Hvy Flamer (instead of Storm Bolter)

    -Death Company Dreadnought
    w/ Hvy Flamer (instead of Storm Bolter)

    FAST ATTACK:
    -Baal Predator
    w/ Flamestorm Cannon, Side Sponser Heavy Flamers

    -Baal Predator
    w/ Flamestorm Cannon, Side Sponser Heavy Flamers

    TOTAL POINTS: 1998

    Small, elite and very assaulty exactly what i was looking for. Tell me what you all think as i went for a smaller list because im going to be heavily converting these guys, all comments, opinions and ideas welcome!

    That death companies going to be a priority target, which is fine but jsut make sure you utilise this (hide them to make them harder etc etc). Do the dreadnoughts have multi-meltas (don't knwo if new BA are different). If so then there a bit short-ranged and have no way to get that fire power to the enemy. Either a longer-range weapon or a drop pod could help (if BA can you could give the drop pod(s) locator beacon to allow DSing to be a good option).

    I'd rather have a powerfist than meltabombs if you can find the points, more versatile.

    With only 33 models in 2000pts, you're going to have to play very tactically and get your guys into assualts as fast as possible, otherwise armies like IG will munch you.

    Hope my comments help. Good luck.

    Am I missing something or do you only have 2 squads of 6 jump marines as your scoring units..?
    And they dont even have a transport as protection..
    I'm sorry but I dont see a 2k list working in objective missions with such a weak core..

    And the 15 dragon claws (death company). I think Astorath makes them troops.

    They are already troops in the codex. And this is just a test list as i said i will be tweaking it in the future. Im thinking about knocking the number of death company down to 10 and then adding more to my assault squads and dropping the dreadnoughts for possibly some devastator squads or vindicators for heavy support. Will update as soon as i can on any changes i choose to make.

    Ah.. my apologies shouldn't have commented as I haven't actually seen the BA codex myself.. I'd just heard that Death Company couldn't score, but I guess that's not true then.. Really need to pay the local a visit.. but exams are coming up soeh yea..

    Unless Astorath changes something, Death Company still aren't scoring. I'd have to check Astorath's entries, but unless he makes them scoring, then you've still only got 2 scoring guys at 7 men a piece. I do think that's too few scoring units and would be problematic in the games revolving around objectives. Unless you plan on tabling your opponent.

    Too few scoring units. Consider shaving off a Dreadnought or some Death Company and investing in more Assault Marines.
