Revised Blood Angel List

I once wanted to run this Blood Angels list... but after actually playing them a bit, I think I'd rather have something like this one:


1500 Pts - Blood Angels Roster

Troops: Assault Squad (9#, 276 pts)
   1 Librarian @ 100 pts (...in Power Armour; Blood Lance; Unleash Rage)
      1 ...in Power Armour
   5 Assault Squad @ 176 pts (Remove Jump Packs; Meltagun; Rhino)
      1 Assault Marine with Meltagun (Remove Jump Packs)
      1 Sergeant (Remove Jump Packs; Bolt Pistol; Power Weapon x1)
      1 Rhino

Troops: Assault Squad (9#, 241 pts)
   1 Sanguinary Priest @ 65 pts (Sanguinary Priest in Power Armour)
      1 Sanguinary Priest in Power Armour (Power Sword)
   5 Assault Squad @ 176 pts (Remove Jump Packs; Meltagun; Rhino)
      1 Assault Marine with Meltagun (Remove Jump Packs)
      1 Sergeant (Remove Jump Packs; Bolt Pistol; Power Weapon x1)
      1 Rhino

: Honour Guard (6#, 225 pts)
   1 Honour Guard @ 225 pts (Honour Guard; Honour Guard; Honour Guard; Honour Guard; Razorback)
      1 Sanguinary Novitiate
      1 Honour Guard (Flamer x1)
      1 Honour Guard (Flamer x1)
      1 Honour Guard (Flamer x1)
      1 Honour Guard (Flamer x1)
      1 Razorback (Twin Linked Assault Cannon)

Heavy Support: Stormraven Gunship (7#, 530 pts)
   1 Sanguinary Priest @ 85 pts (Sanguinary Priest in Terminator Armour)
      1 Sanguinary Priest in Terminator Armour
   1 Terminator Assault Squad @ 215 pts (Lightning Claws (pair); Thunder Hammer & Storm Shield)
      2 Terminator with Lightning Claws
      2 Terminator with Thunder Hammer & Storm Shield
      1 Sergeant (Thunder Hammer & Storm Shield)
   1 Stormraven Gunship @ 230 pts (4x Bloodstrike Missiles; Twin Linked MultiMelta; Hurricane Bolters (each side))

Heavy Support: Devastator Squad (9#, 228 pts)
   7 Devastator Squad @ 228 pts (Missile Launcher x4; Rhino)
      1 Sergeant (Bolt Pistol; Chainsword x1)
      1 Rhino

Total Roster Cost: 1500

The best part about this list is that the only thing I'll need to purchase is the stormraven gunship... and because there isn't a model for it yet, I won't be tempted! The most noticeable difference? That tactical squad is no more... now it's a devastator squad with four missile launchers instead of the one that I would have been running with the tactical squad. Is it more points? Actually they're pretty comparable (although the devastator squad has fewer marines)... but I think it will be worth it. I might consider other heavy weapons for the devastators, except that I already have tons of missile launcher bits from the Dark Angels veterans kits.
