Someone got their book early and is spilling the beans. Checkout the latest compilation of new Blood Angels rules confirmations by Iuchiban on Warseer!

Updated items in RED and italicized 

First the big stuff;

  • Death Company is now elite as DC dreadnought
  • Predator Baal is Heavy Support
  • Librarian Dreadnought is HQ
  • Mephiston is HQ and IC
  • Dante and Gabriel Seth are Lords of War
  • All units have now Furious Charge
  • Only troop choices are Tactical squads and scouts.
  • No new units. No Centurions and no talons.

Dante’s Axe is +2S, AP2, mastercraft and NOT unwieldy, and he’s Eternal Warrior

No terminator armour for DC. But there are good news, Jump packs are now only +3 points. On the other hand their WS has been downgraded to 4.

No squadrons for Dreads. “Standard” dreads are now Elite, Furiosos and DC dreads too. Librarian dreads are HQ.

Tactials As usual + new options. They can get anti-air missiles BTW. And no more Land Raider as dedicated transports for everybody, just for termies.

Vanguard Veterans cannot charge after Deep Strike

Special rules for Death Company: FC, Fearless, Relentless, FnP, Rage. They cannot reroll to wound if chaplain in the unit. Only Astorath gives them this ability.

Sanguinor pretty the same but: gets only 4++, re-rolls to hit and wound in challenges

Sanguinary Priests costs about the same as a Wyvern, are HQ, and units they joins get +1WS and FnP. The are IC btw.
