Blood Angels

The Blood Angels are one of the oldest and most revered of all the Space Marine chapters in the Warhammer 40k universe.

As I dive into the world of Warhammer 40k I have decided to collect them as my main army now that I’ve finished building and painting the Ork army from my Assault on Black Reach starter set.

My Blood Angels Army Build

My Blood Angels army build is very much in it’s infancy stages.  I’m still so new to this game that I’m mostly just researching my army build based on the models that I think look the coolest and I’ll slowly refine it and update it as I learn more about the game and the Blood Angels themselves.

New Blood Angels Stuff

Games Workshop recently released a bunch of new stuff for the Blood Angels.  Here’s a video of the new stuff that came out:

Now, as far as my army build is concerned I have picked up a bunch of Blood Angels stuff but I’m only getting started on building and painting.

I still need to pickup an HQ and a few other models to get a starter army going.

HQ

Here are the HQ choices for the Blood Angels according to the Blood Angels Codex:

  • Commander Dante – 225 pts
  • Chapter Master Gabriel Seth – 160 pts
  • Astorath the Grim – 220 pts
  • The Sanguinor, Exemplar of the Host – 275 pts
  • Mephiston, Lord of Death – 250 pts
  • Captain Tycho – 175 pts
  • Librarian – 100 pts
  • Reclusiarch -130 pts
  • Captain – 100 pts

The Sanguinor, Examplar of the Host

I think this is one of the coolest looking models that Games Workshop has created.  Out of all the HQ choices, this model is definitely my favorite as far as looks go but might not be a practical choice for a small army.

For my initial smaller point army build though I might go with Chapter Master Gabriel Seth, Captain Tycho or the Blood Angels Captain.

Elites

I have not made any choices on my Elites yet.

Here are the Elites choices for the Blood Angels according to the Blood Angels Codex:
