Okay, so I tried out the Blood Angels yesterday in a game ( I had to run it unbound because of me not having enough tacticals painted).

I lost the game by 3 victory points because the tactical objectives I was drawing kept coming up as the ones as furthest possible from where I was.

I did run a 10 man sanquinary guard attached to Dante and a Priest with jump pack though, and that squad was deadly.  They just flew around the board wiping out everything in sight until the game ended on round 5.

Overall, I was quite impressed at how effective they were.

Mephiston was attached to a squad of 5 death company and it took 4 rounds for the 5 DCs to be wiped out, then Mephi was one shotted by a str 10 lance psychic power (ouch).

Well, today I'll finally try out the new Blood Angels codex.

Unfortunately, I am forced to run the list unbound.  I only have one tactical squad and no scouts.  I purchased a new box of Blood Angels tacticals, but haven't got around to assembling/painting them yet since I have been painting Christmas gifts for friends.

I have a feeling that removing assault marines from the troop choice has messed with a lot of people's armies.

I can take the nerf to Mephiston, sure he can't tank half of my opponent's army anymore, but the point reduction and making him an independent character made it so he doesn't have to.

Sure making the sanguinary priest an HQ means I won't put one in every squad to make my entire army feel no pain cheaply.

But here's the thing.  I can understand the reason behind those changes and I can deal with them.

However, removing the assault marines from troops will affect my entire collection.  I built up my collection with the idea that assault marines are troop choices and I have quite a lot of them because of it.

I purchased them knowing that they are going to be mandatory selections.  I'm sure a lot of Blood Angels players don't even have scouts or tacticals.  I'm pretty sure a lot of people have 6 assault marines.

Now it feels like a lot of money I sank into my army is at a complete loss, and the only thing GW had to do to make the codex feel like Blood Angels is to make assault marines a troop choice.

Other than that, I vastly agree with the codex.

Yeah, I will say that from a collector's stand point, and a consumer's stand point that their decision to do that really sucks.

One of my friends wanted to start up 40k, so I painted the Dark Angels I got from Dark Vengeance to get him started.  I just have the Captain left to paint for him.  Two Terminator squads and Captain should be enough to get started... I think...

Anyone else realize that Gaogaigar had a D&D party in giant robot format?

Gaigaigar - fighter
Mike Sounders 13th - Bard
Choryujin/Gekiryujin - Spellcasters
Volfogg - Rogue
Goldy Marg - That intelligent weapon you get half-way trough the campaign

And of course, nobody wanted to roll the healer.

I bought both halves of the series, and watched the first half, couldn't really get through the second half.

So now that I have some games under my belt with the new Blood Angels codex, here are some tactics I have found to be useful.

I put one of my tacticals in a drop pod with a heavy flamer, flamer, and hand flamer on the sgt with a power sword.  The main objective here is that they cause chaos in the opponent's deployment zone and they have to be dealt with as the rest of my army gets in melee range.

I join Mephiston to the Death Company squad.  If I get unleash rage, the Death Company just got better.  If I have wings of sanguinius I move 6 in a rhino, disembark 6 inches, then wings of sanguinius 12,
then run D6 or shoot the crap out of them.  The feel no pain and 9 bodies in death company keeps them alive long enough for Mephiston and Death Company's charge next turn, or if they are charged the psychic buffs you should have done with Mephiston (particularly the quickening) should be scary enough for the opponent.

When using the Sanguinor I keep him in reserve since I'm usually in melee by the beginning of turn 2 one way or another.  I then deep strike him and run him towards the melee.  Suddenly my entire squad gains +1 attack.

Still working on more tactics and getting a feel of the new codex, but I'm starting to get a nice idea on how I want my blood angels to run this edition.

Nah, new codex means you have to experiment with various strategies since most of the strategies you developed in the last codex no longer exist, or doesn't work.  

Just trying to figure out what works.

So I was doing some final cleanup/assembly  before starting the painting for my brother's Dark Eldar Wracks and was watching some Futurama while doing so.

I completely forgot to skip the episode about Fry's dog while doing so.  Whenever I watch that episode I get so sad I have to give my dog an extra hug.  Seriously, that is one of the most depressing episode of any show ever.

So I finally started painting again.  Here's the Captain from Warmachine.  Can't remember her name off the top of my head.  Her primed model was sitting in my "to paint" pile for so long I lost the horns for the top of her head.
