Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok i'm may be facing Blood Angels soon and I need help developing a decent list. The thing is the BA seem to do fairly well in both shooting and CC. The game should be around 750pts and please keep it around there.
Here is what I have at my disposal.
x1 Hive Tyrant with wings conversoin
x1 Box of warriors
Please place comments before this weekend.
Hm... I'll do my best.Originally Posted by Commissar_Malevich
HQ: 196 points
Hive Tyrant w/ Wings, Toxin Sacs, Enhanced Senses, 2x Twin-Linked Devourers, Warp Field
Use the Tyrant as a harasser, shoot and pull back, shoot and pull back, try to keep him out of charge range.
8x Genestealers w/ Extended Carapace
Use these guys to counter-charge the Death Company.
Your tar pit squad. Don't worry about their shooting, just keep them between the Blood Angels and your Zoanthropes. Because they're a tar pit, consider taking two squads of 8 to make your deployment take longer.
Heavy Support: 130
2x Zoanthropes w/ Synapse and Warp Blast
Blast the Blood Angels with the small blast template every turn. If they charge with Rhinos, blow them away with the powered burst. Try to keep the Zoans fairly close together so they can support each other (but make sure they're not pie-bait).
Elites: 105 (129 if you want to give them leaping)
3 Warriors w/ Adrenal Glands (WS), Adrenal Glands (I), Extended Carapace, Toxin Sacs, Rending Claws, Scything Talons
I didn't give these guys leaping, as I see them as more of a counter-charge unit. When the Blood Angels charge your 'Gaunts, rush in with these three and rip them apart.
That should leave you with 79 points for Hormagaunts, so take
putting you at exactly 751 points.
overal great suggestions poptarts.
however putting ws and tox on em when they have rending is a defineate point sink for me.
i would field the 3 warriors with initiative scy and rend and extended carapace leaving there cost at a very reasonable 90. 114 with leaping.
keep in mind those death company jump pack chappy squads are beefy, and they move 12. blood angel players will probably abuse there furious squad by having at least 1 regular jump squad as well as the chappy led jump squad. ehhhh, not good for thos few gaunts or zoanthropes or even that tyrant. i think adding a venom cannon carnifex to your list would take care of a bhaal predator pretty quickly, as well as draw fire from those genes.
i would suggest you go with everything pop tarts said except..... drop a zoanthrope an add that 79 leftover points for a carnifex, you would have a total of 144 points to get the carnifex thats perfext for you. i would defineately suggest giving him a venom cannon, but any fex should preform very well against blood angels.
i hope this helps
Ok I see come good stuff. Although some I cant do because he has been know to get easily annoyed with proxying. Well here is what I got for a list with the stuff I got.
Hive Tyrant: x2 Scything Talons,Warpfield,Wings and Toxic Miasma for those Death Corp.
x3 Warriorsnhanced Senses, Scyting Talons, Deathspitters and Extended Carapace
x8 Genestealersxtended Carapace
x1 Zoanthrope:Warp Blast and Synapse
x1 Carnifex:Toxin Sacs,Venom Cannon, Scything Talons, Enhanced Senses and EC
This rolls out to 753...I hope he doesnt mind my extra 3 points. Well yeah I would have made CC warriors but I only get one pair of rending claws and I say to hell with it. So do you think I got a chance?

Against Blood Angels? Heck yeah. Let him come to you, and remember to use your non-powered warp blast to decimate his Death Company.Originally Posted by Commissar_Malevich
