ok, im playing against blood angels soon i need help on making a list. i know hes gonna use quite a few terminators , death company and tanks. his hq will be the guy with wings. what units do you suggest i use?
i suggest you use the units you have
what the hell are you talking about?
i'm talking about how this is the third thread you've made on taking on blood angels and asking advice without adding anything to the discussion, and its really annoying
the best thing you can possibly do is just play the game and learn from the experience.
then you'll have a basis to discuss tactics and unit efficacy, instead of blindingly posting queries
If you gave a points listing, you might be able to get more of a accurate bearing from the community as well, seeing as in small points games, you would probably be better swarming them, where as you would be better off hitting them with a brick shithouse in larger games when you can take either LS/BS warriors, 2 HT's or something a really good amount of bite to it.
I just played in a 2K points tourney and played pretty evenly against a fully DS/outflank/reserve BA army which had 5 squads of jumpies with astorath, 2 baals with flamestorm cannons, a librarian with a jump pack, 2 sang priests (1 jumpie, 1 terminator armour) 5 assault termies, and a squad of tac marines in a rhino. My army was a Flying HT (LS/BS, TL devs w BL worms (hive commander, old adversary, leech essence and paroxysm)), Warrior prime (LW/BS, deathspitter & tox sacs), 2 squads of 8 GS (tox sacs), 1 squad of 9 GS & BL (tox sacs), 5 warriors (STal (4 x deathspitters, 1 x BStrang), tox sacs), 2 zoeys, 3 hive guard, The Doom in a pod, 2 squads of 5 raveners (STal & Rend Claws) and a squad of 3 Biovores. List had a nice balance and played well in most situations.

I hate to say it but thats a pretty bad list for 2000... the only anti tank it features is one unit of hive guard, and one unit of 2 thropes. In 2000 points and a competitive list environment that list will be slaughterd 9 times out of 10. Honestly (and i dont mean this is a criticism kobynids) i wouldnt try to take tactics from this build, mostly because your list is vastly different to his, but also because theres a good few things that could be improved, which your list features less.
And in all honesty potatolegs is right. Just use the list you built and actually play the game!!!!! We can tell you for hours about tactics and strategy, but if you dont actually have any experience its not going to be any good. Play the game, get some experience down THEN come back and if you still need help ask for it, noting your findings and experience.
One last thing. How exactly are we supposed to know what the "guy with the wings" is? We're not blood angel players and the entire army has an "angelic" theme to it!!! Same goes for "A lot of tanks"... off the top of my head i can name over 15 types of tank/weapon varients, saying theres a lot of tanks doesnt help. We need details and specifics to really make any use from that information.
But in summary, as potatolegs says, play the game, see how it goes if you still need help then come back with your findings.

Try to use lashwhips, they can mess up Blood Angel assault units. BA are also expensive so use very cheap Termagants and Hormagaunts to swamp them. The little ones need a synapse creature to control them and make sure they don't break. In return they will dish out loads of weak hits that will all add up to make the BA die.
Implant attack on a Hive Tyrant with lashwhips will be very helpful in making fancy types like Mephiston die more easily.
