Blood Angels at 1850 – the meta is a tough nut to crack

December 31, 2015 ftnadmin 10 comments

Hey all, TPM here.

We get list requests somewhat frequently and I love it when we do.  Its another chance to look at a codex we may have left on the shelf for too long.  This request was particularly fun to address because it was about a Christmas gift someone received and it was about my beloved Blood Angels.

This is just the first pass but I like what is shaping up here.  The list uses the named character dreadnought from the BA campaign released last year.  He doesn’t see a lot of play but him being Objective Secured often goes un-remarked.

The Sang Guard below ride with Dante in the Storm Raven.   The priest drops in with a Death Company pod and then joins up with the Guard or a unit of Tac Squad marines once they are on the table.
