1500pt BA List

So here is a 1500pt Blood angel list


Liberian Shield/Rage 100pts


5 Assault Marines + Melta + Power weapon + Razorback with TL Assault Cannon 180pts

5 Assault Marines + Melta + Power weapon + Razorback with TL Assault Cannon 180pts

5 Assault Marines + Melta + Power claw + Razorback with TL Assault Cannon 180pts

10 Assault Marines + Melta x2 + Powerfist + Plasma Pistol + Rhino 265pts


Sanguinary Priest x2 100pts

Heavy Support

Predator + Lascannon Side sponsons 135pts

Predator + Lascannon Side sponsons 135pts

Vindicator + Siege Shield 155pts


Land Speeder + Multimelta + Heavy Flamer 70

The plan is to push slightly forward to get within assault cannon range, and then to slowly draw back until the enemy is weakened. Once I have taken out the transports and whittled down a few infantry its assault time with the 10 man RAS getting support form a smaller unit with a sanguinary priest. The Libby will be giving cover to as many tanks as possible until he can rage in assault with the priests.

The speeder will be trying to sneak up and flank any high AV.

The Vindicator with the help of some las should be able to pulp some power armour.

I will get some shots of the army up soon.

Warhammer with Zail, First post!

welcome! and here it goes for post number 1

I first started getting into the painting and modelling world when i was 11, i remember seeing a GW store with my dad and thinking "those toys look awesome!" i managed to get a starter box set and some paints that Christmas..... 3 weeks later, a bunch of the ugliest marines you have even seen and no one to play with i quit.

1 year ago a friend of mine who had played warhammer for most of his teenage life got me to try out warhammer fantasy, i ended up with a dwarf and warriors of chaos army. Painted to a reasonable standard and getting some wins in the 7th edition warhammer fantasy seemed to be awesome.......and then came 8th edition..... What can i say.... oh i know


I hate 8th edition, 8th just seemed to be a money grab by GW. So what’s a gamer supposed to do. Well i quit warhammer altogether. Until that same friends who got me into fantasy convinced me to try 40k and dam is 40k a better game.

7th edition fantasy was good but i love 5th edition 40K. So i had to choose an army to play, i really like Necrons but after a bit of research i found out that they are quite old and don’t really hold up to the 5th armies out there eg, Space Wolves, Dark Eldar and Imperial Guard.

I ended up choosing the blood angels, i love their fluff and they look awesome! I play a 750 point tournament every Friday and will post my list and have some pictures soon.

On the left is my 1st attempt at painting blood angels.

Till next time
