Welcome to Librarium Online!
Well I'm fairly new to BA but I'm liking them so far. After some testing I am liking this list. There are a few components I still need to purchase so before I do, I figured I would ask you kind folks about suggestions to make the list better, here goes...
Blood Angels 1850
Mephiston - 250
Inside (most of the time)
Honor Guard - 290
-1 lightning claw on 3 of them
-1 melta gun on 3 of them
-1 Blood Champion
-1 Chapter Banner
Reclusiarch - 155
Furioso Dreadnaught -125
Stormraven - 200
Assault Termies -220
-4 have Thunder hammers/Storm shields
-1 has dual lightning claws
Assault Troops - 235
-Sergeant has Power fist
-2 melta guns
Scouts - 100
-1 missle launcher
Scouts - 75
Where I play there is usually enough terrain to keep him with a 4 cover save at all times, or I screen him with my assault troops.
Would keeping him behind skimmers provide him with cover?
I'm uncomfortable with the list.
1. There's only two vehicles (the Dread doesn't count while it's a passenger) that are not hard to kill. Either bring a third Stormraven or use a different approach, like Rhinos or Drop Pods.
2. Give the honor guard a specific task and reduce their equipment accordingly; I think you need to anyway since one of the five is an Apothecary.
3. Numbers are important. Five-man murder squads are great for killing other specialists but this list will fall apart against hordes. You need more bodies; maybe drop the Chaplain to afford them?
4. 2 squads of 5 Scouts aren't going to do much of anything. At a minimum, combine them together and add a power weapon.
Generally, the list needs more redundancy and a higher model count.
