I have been play testing intensively for Adepticon already tweaking and working around a 1850 list trying to make Blood Angels work. I wanted to get away from the Guard feel and try not to relay so much on mechanized units. Main reason being point cost and really the Space marine units not strong enough compared to other codexs when you are comparing vehicles vs vehicles. Which brings me to the list I think I am going to play at Adepticon and across the country this year.
Blood Angels 1850.
Astroth the Grim
Librarian Sanguine sword might of heroes, Epistolary Jump pack.
Sanguniary Guard two IP , PF, Chapter Banner
Sanguinary priest 1 with power armour
Sanguniary priest 1 with Jump pack and power sword
10 man Assault squad with powerfist and two melta guns
10 man tactical squad with lascannon and flamer
10 man scout squad with power weapon. Haven't decided on 4 sniper rifles and a heavy bolter or just camo cloaks and bolt pistols.
2 5 man devastor squads with 4 missile launchers
2 attack bikes with Multi meltas
2 attack bikes with Multi meltas.
The big thing around this list is I have been fun playing it and it forces me to use more tactics around the game such as using terrain, threading assaults and intermixing units.
Let me know what you guys think, I know its different from a lot of other things and some people might understand how the list is used or works but it seems to hold very strong against mech in a lot of ways.
