Blood Angels Of Blood Army List Archetypes: Blood Spear!

Blood Spear (n) - A form of semi-Alpha strike Blood Angels list, predicated upon the need to obliterate mass Infantry incredibly quickly (ie, turn one) but while attempting to retain sufficient anti-tank firepower to be a credibly competitive army.


So, thinking thusly.  We want 3 Furiosos with Frag Cannon and HF.  We also want 2 Baals, with AssCans and HF.  We need some ranged support, and with no Sternies or Termies available, that's Devs or Rifles.  Those prevent us taking the Vindicators we would also love to include, sadly.  :(

Devs cannot be suppressed, only killed, so they are more valuable to the list.  We want all 3 Furies T1, so we need 5 Pods.  Let's go!

Furioso Dreadnought:
Frag Cannon, Heavy Flamer, Drop Pod. - 170

Furioso Dreadnought:
Frag Cannon, Heavy Flamer, Drop Pod. - 170

Furioso Dreadnought:
Frag Cannon, Heavy Flamer, Drop Pod. - 170

Okay, now we want the Baals.

Baal Predator:
Assault Cannon, Heavy Flamers, Dozer Blade - 145
Baal Predator:
Assault Cannon, Heavy Flamers, Dozer Blade - 145

Dozer Blade all but ensures they get to where they need to go...if only they could have Multi-Melta sponsons... :p

Okay, we can leave the Devs for the minute, and get ourselves 4 Troops choices, as this will be 2k.

Assault Squad:
Flamer, Razorback [Las/Plas] - 160
Assault Squad:
Flamer, Razorback [Las/Plas] - 160
Assault Squad:
Flamer, Razorback [Las/Plas] - 160
Assault Squad:
Flamer, Razorback [Las/Plas] - 160

...So, we've spent now... 1440.  ouch.  Hefty enough, but we have the core.  Sadly, we need another 2 Pods...and we have no Devs yet.  Hey, wait!

Devastator Squad:
4 Missile Launchers, Drop Pod. - 165
Devastator Squad:
4 Missile Launchers, Drop Pod. - 165

That gives us the requisite 5 Pods, and gives us some Devvies to cover the advance.   Takes us to 1770 (drop a Furioso and a Dev Pod for an HQ at 1750!) Now we need an HQ choice. Libbies are 100, that works.

Librarian:
Shield of Sanguinius, Blood Lance - 100

He takes Shield, because he's in a rear Razorback.  Duh.  ;)  Lance could equally be Sword, but Furiosos are already something of a counter to TWC.  Hard to be sure before I test it, but this list might get by better with the AP1...I think it will come down to preference most of the time.  Finally, that takes us to 1870, leaving 130 points.

Devastator Squad:
4 Missile Launchers. - 130

FINISHED LIST:

Librarian:
Shield of Sanguinius, Blood Lance - 100

Furioso Dreadnought:
Frag Cannon, Heavy Flamer, Drop Pod. - 170
