I am in the process of completing a Blood Angels army for my son. I have played 2 games of 40K about 4 years ago so I am of little help. I want the list to be as hard as nails so that he stands a chance. I have two lists.
What list do you like better and why?
What changes would you make to both?

Welcome to LO!
The first list is more competitive, especially for the beginning player. I'd recommend two small tweaks. Replace a Predator with a Whirlwind like you did in the second list--indirect fire is useful when you have so many light vehicles running around--and use the points savings to buy Terminator armor for the Sanguinary Priest. He'll fit right in with the Terminator squad.
By the way, there's no need to show standard equipment or sergeants when posting a list; one can safely assume that kind of thing in the absence of additional detail.
