    Welcome to the Red wunz!

    HQ:
    Lots of points here and I'm not sure why you have Astorath. The only reason to take him over a normal chaplin is his ability to take multiple Death Company, which you havent. I would loose him and take a normal Chaplin(or Lemartes) and stick him in the Death Company. It'll save you points for other goodies.

    ELITES:
    Stupendously expensive for what they are. you'd be better off with Honour Guard but if you want these purely for the models then go right ahead. They're not all bad although I'd consider a Powerfist or some fusion pistols in there.

    TROOPS:
    Tactical Squad: A bit of a waste here at the moment. Give these boys some love. Give them a Rhino and give the sergeant a Powerfist or something. Rememeber this is the guy getting the Sanguinors blessing so he's like a mini Captain. Tool him up like one.

    FAST:
    Go for Heavy Bolters for side sponsons. You'll be lucky to shoot both H-Flamers at one target and thats provided you've moved 6 inches, which wont be happening much. Take H-Bolters so you can fire on the move and then unleash some Flamey Death with the Cannon.


    OVERALL:
    You're a bit light on anti-tank. The only way you can deal with them is in close combat and tanks like Flacons or Hammer heads will dance round you. You could tool the Tactical squad up with melta weapons to solve this, or turn it into an Assault squad with 2 Melta guns.
    Other than that you're very low on scoring units. Only 1 unit at 1500pts is asking for trouble. If that Tactical squad dies you have no way of claiming objectives... If your opponent realises this you're going to be fighting for a draw.

    Agreed. Of the new books spacewolves is the more competative but BA is more fun.

    HQ Choices:

    The Sanguinor - 275 pts

    Astaroth The Grim - 220 pts
    Same as Lord Borak said. Seems like a waste. I'd rather see a chaplain here

    Elites:

    Sanguinary Guard - 5 Models - 200 pts
    Upgrades - Death Masks - 25 pts
    Total - 225 pts
    Seems okay. As long as you dont isolate them. And yeh, powerfist or something to give them more bite.
    Troops:

    Death Company - 10 Models - 200 pts
    Upgrades - Jump Packs - 15 pts
    Infernus Pistol X2 - 30 pts
    Power Weapon - 15 pts
    Thunder Hammer - 30 pts
    Total - 290 pts
    Well thats how not to isolate the Guard...seems okay. A Chaplain would be beautiful here though

    Tactical Squad - 10 Models - 170 pts
    Couldnt agree with Borak more. too plain
    Fast Attack:

    Baal Predator - 115 pts
    Upgrades - FlameStorm Cannon - Free
    Flamers (Side Sponsors) - 25 pts
    Extra Armour - 15 pts
    Total - 155 pts
    Again agreed. Heavy Bolter side sponsons. Has to be.

    Baal Predator - 115 pts
    Upgrades - Twin Linked Assault Cannon - Free
    Heavy Bolters (Side Sponsors) - 30 pts
    Extra Armour - 15 pts
    Total - 160 Pts
    This is fine.

    Total Points - 1495 pts

    So What Do Ya think.
    Not too bad. Questions at end...
    I've had 3 games so far with it, 2 against Chaos and 1 against Space wolves (don't Ask).
    oh, and Astaroth Does run around with the Death Company =]
    Right. Overall anaylsis is the same as Boraks...what do you use to take out armor!? You have 1 thunder hammer and 1 assault cannon. Thats not enough. I reckon Sanguinor can do something as well (cant remember) but that seems like a waste of him.

    Couldnt agree more with Borak through this. I may as well have said ditto.

    Massive point no-one seems to have mentioned: Death Company jump packs cost that much per model. That squad' should cost 425 points, not 290.

    In 1500 points army and taking only one death company lose Astaroth and Sanguinor because he eats to many points for an HQ in a low points game.For your Hq option I would take a Captain or Libby and upgrad them. Try and keep your HQ point cost around 10-15% of the games points limit, so if you are playing 1500 stay around 150 points.

    2/3 of missions are objective based, and you have 1 scoring unit. Death company does not count as scoring it just uses a troop slot. so you can use the spare points you saved by dropping the hqs to pick up some acutal scoring units, take some camo cloaked scouts and another tac squad and put both the tac squads in a rhino w/EA to atleast protect them. I would take the hand flamers instead of the pistols and save ten points on the DC. Get lemartes for your DC since you saved points on the HQs.

    lose baal pred you need anti tank, you have the DC for infantry

    Would take two 10 man tac squads with flamers and ML and put them in rhinos w/extra armor for around 230-260 pts per squads

    2 preds with las can sponsons like 135 each or something like that

    Make sure your HQ has a Jump pack and put him with the DCs

    Capt w/JP, PS, IP - 155 or libby with JP

    10 man DC with JP, Lemartes, 1 fist, 2 power swords - 555 or something like that dont have dex with me( put HQ with)

    10 man tac squad w/fist, ML, Flamer in rhino with EA - 260

    10 man tac squad w/fist, ML, Flamer in rhino with EA - 260

    2 preds with las can sponsons like 135 each

    2 preds with las can sponsons like 135 each


    that should work better for you. and remember if you like the models use them as count as models.
