Darrell and Andy take time to go over the Blood Angels Codex… it’s been out for a while, but how do they fare today?
First up are the HQ choices.
I don’t think they all bought turbo engines for their vehicles. I think it’s just that da red ones go fasta.
Yes you have done blood angels week but all of the videos are not watcheble. I know why.
When the Necrons get released i hope you guys do a Necron month not just a week…….we’ve waited 9/10 years for the new shiney toasters.
if we did a necrons month it would leave me sitting at my PC with my eyes burned out by the end of it…
Well GW just put up a teaser in the what’s new bit so we’ll see what we get on the 29th, I have no idea obviously
I really like from Astorath just becouse he looks so badass. I’m not convinced by HQ choices that are not special characters althought those surely are cheaper in points.
You seemed to have forgot the honor guard squad. This is a great option for when using Dante.
Guys, the blood angels is one of the newer codexs out, you even did a week on it. Please do the older codex’s first and show them some love.
@maddogdwh … Unfortunately, the Blood Angels week was lost and needs to be recovered. We get a lot of requests every week for the BA content, so Darrell and I went through the codex again just to bring things up to date.
We’ll be looking at the other Codex too. Stay tuned
Glad to hear that old chap.
It’s a pity you lost the one with Warren and Darrell talking about The Sanguinor and his Greesy Nipples, and his Blessings.
That was one classic video if ever there was one
I agree that was classic BOW I laughed so hard my eyes were tearing up…
Gabriel Seth & Tycho I’ve never seen as its well known they are not worth their points. The Sanguinor, Dante and Astorath may look good but they aren’t deemed worth their points but definately show up once in a while. The only HQ we see in tourneys these days are Mephiston, Chaplains/Reclusiarch (only w/Death Company though) and Librarians. Overall the lack of any invulnerable saves for Blood Angels (unless you take terminator variant) make our HQ choices all very vulnerble to power weapons.
I’d say fast vehicles like Vindicators make mechanized a signature popular choice for BA. DoA isnt something that shows up as often these days but goes best with the new Storm Ravens.
Space Vampires taste like chicken! …
It’s too bad concerning lost content… I actually built a jump list modeled after Darrells jump list using Dante and Sang. Guard ,Assault squad. ETC… Then came into a tie for 3rd. place. For a summer league I was new to the game back then. It was cool being able to use the lists they put together here for the new people like me back then.
Sparkle-pire marines with metal nipples buffing their sergeant. Fnar.
Right now that’s out the way, the decent of angels rule only works with jump packs and only when you’re using them for deep strike, it doesn’t work with drop pods or stormturkeys.
The Blood Angle Captain is identical to the Space Marine Captain- the orbital strike belongs to the Chapter master, which a chapter only has one of, for the Blood Angels that’s Dante, who’s far more interested in getting his axe dirty than triangulating a bombardment with his fleet.
i always take either dante and a captain on bike or jump pack or sanguinar and reclusiarc with jump pack and use the model for the death company bloke that i cant remember the name of
Is a shame they will never get them blood angel videos back, they were pretty good lol
I liked most of this video, though I’d like to hear more of the actual rules, and less about how they compare to SW.
Also, I think you missed a MAJOR part of Dante’s rules, he has a Death Mask that works as a regular Death Mask, but it also allows you to lower the Weapon Skill, Wound, Initiative, and Attack of an enemy Independent Character of your choice by 1 each BEFORE forces are even deployed (to a minimum of 1). That alone I think makes him worth his points.
You also don’t mention Mephiston’s Transfixing gaze, which makes a single IC in base contact take a leadership test at -4, and if they fail Mephiston gets to re-roll ALL failed to hit and to wound rolls against that IC for the rest of that assault phase. Again worth mentioning.
You also say the Iron Halo is a 5+ inv., but it’s actually a 4+.
Please keep these videos coming, they’re great!!
Can mephiston do all three of his powers AND the force wep? in the codex it says he can only use three???
oh come on do Tau PLZ!!! and thank you
