New Blood Angels – Playtest Battle Report

By Rob Baer | April 8th, 2010 | Categories: Battle Reports, Blood Angels, Space Marines, Videos

Hey guys, MBG back again with my first Blood Angels Playtest Video. We tried out the following list vs. my Mech guard.

Overall it was a good learning experience for what the new ‘Angels are capable of, and how to go about it.

I like the fast moving vehicles, and the psykers, but I don’t like the lack of long range fire. However I don’t think I’ll be able to get around the long range fire part, as my guts telling me the more competitive builds will be all out aggro assault.

1850 Mech Angels

  • Librarian w/ Blood Lance, Shield of Sanguinius
  • Brother Corbulo
  • Furioso LIbrarian Dreadnought, BL Wings
  • Furioso LIbrarian Dreadnought, BL Wings, Drop Pod
  • Assault Squad 5 Man- Melta, P Fist, Razorback Las/Plas
  • Assault Squad 5 Man- Melta, Razorback Las/Plas
  • Assault Squad 5 Man- Melta, Razorback Las/Plas
  • Assault Squad 5 Man- Melta, Razorback Las/Plas
  • Baal Predator
  • Baal Predator
  • Baal Predator 

The basic idea of the list is to rush forward and pound the heck out of your enemy. The single Librarian model hangs out in a razorback and gives everything a 5+ cover save.

It was a good starting point to jump in on the angels, and use some of their special stuff, however I think the direction this list will end up taking is more assault troops with jump packs and enough armor just to screen them.



So what do you think of the Battle Report? I tried to snazz it up a bit with some graphics, but am far from video mastery at this point.
