    Ok, I know he'll probably use quite a lot of tanks and troops with jet packs or whatever they're called. Here's my list.

    I'm a BA player - your best bet is to swamp him with as many attacks as possible. Go for units getting seperated, and destroy them. Sanguinary Priests should be your first target in CC, as that'll deny them furious charge and FNP.

    Oh, and shoot the death company. They are dangerous!

    Boneswords and or lashwhips on Tyranid Warriors would be effective against Blood Angels. Even Death company types will die from that, though I'm not really sure what the Death company does other than run around with power weapons.

    Yes genestealers are lethal vs space marines, but careful they will get destroyed by range if your opponent knows what he is doing.

    Gaunts will give you a cover save on the stealers. Just make sure you have a cover save on them as they close, makes them way more survivable.

    Ok, to some up what has been said, I basically need to attack as much as possible, use warriors with boneswords and lashwhips. Are they any other tactics for versing a lot of tanks?(still about blood angels). And what about loads of terminators and death company and other troops?

    Because of the number of saves they can get, the best way to fight BA is to get as many attacks as possible, with as many of them being power weapons as possible. A single power weapon wound is worth 6 standard wounds.
