Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey all. I'm trying to rekindle my Warhammer 40k playing by going back to my original army with the amazing new Blood Angels models. I recently bought the Codex and have looked at a few other lists, but I wanted to throw this up here and see what you guys thought.
130 - Reclusiarch
95 - Sanguinary Priest - Lightning Claw, Jump Pack, Melta Bombs
235 - 10 man Tactical Squad - Plasma Gun, Plasma Cannon, Bolt Pistol & CCW (sergeant); in a Rhino
235 - 5 man Death Company - 2 Power Weapons; in a Razorback w/ Twin-linked Assault Cannons, Extra-Armor
155 - 5 man Assault Squad - Meltagun, Infernus Pistol, Power Fist, & Combat Shield (sergeant), Jump Packs
150 - Baal Predator - Twin-linked Assault Cannons, 2 Heavy Bolters
My main thought on this is that the Reclusiarch goes with the Death Company and the Sanguinary Priest with the Assault Squad.
Thanks in advance.
It looks decent, a lot of anti-infantry, lacking a bit on reliable Anti-Tank. I see from your list you are kiting your RAS squad as your Anti-tank, but I would suggest removing the LC from the Priest, and the Infernus Pistol and Combat Shield from the RAS to allow a few more bodies in your assault squad. Cause if I was a mech list and thats all the reliable Anti-Tank I saw, those 5 bodies would be dead quick.
I would also suggest moving the Extra-Armor to the Baal, mostly because it is the bigger threat and would suffer more from the shaken/stunned results.

#1. Drop one DC PW and extra armour to get your DC a PF or Thunderhammer so they are a threat to tanks if the enemy tries to bog them with a dread or whatnot.
#2. 5 man jump pack units are far to easy to kill, even with FnP. Since you don't have the points for a 10 man unit how about dropping the packs and running them in a Razorback. It will keep them safe for awhile and put another tank threat on the board for your opponent to deal with.
#3. If you need points, get them from your extra armour and sanguinary priest upgrades. That is where most of the fat in your list is at.
The only honorable options left to we combatants is seppuku or semantics...which amount to the same thing really.
