Hey everyone,

I am getting into 40k love the fluff and want to play. But given this is an expensive hobby I was hoping to get some advice before spending money uselessly.

I have an idea for a TAC army and I am looking to your collective wisdom to let me know of this is terrible or workable. Mostly going to play for fun but definitely would like to not lose every game. Anyway here goes:

Battle forged Pure Blood Angels 3 CP

Battalion 1 HQ

Smash Captain - 124pts jump pack, storm shield, TH, Angel's wing warlord artisan of war

Smash Captain - 124 pts jump pack, storm shield, TH

Intercessors (5 man) 85pts stalker bolsters, aux grenade, sergeant with chainsword

Intercessors (5 man) 85pts stalker bolsters, aux grenade, sergeant with chainsword

Total 5 CP power level 39 POINTS 681

Battalion 2

HQ

Lemartes 100pts veritas vitae

Libby Dread 142 pts furious, force halberd, stormbolter

Totals 1CP 39 or 51 for power level POINTS 713

ARMY TOTALS 14CP -1 for extra relic POWER LEVEL 115 or 127 (does adding 1 sang guard increase pl by 12? That's what codex implies)[list]

Thank you in advance.

I would only ever run one Smash Captain I expect in CA2019 other marine armies are going to get the 40 point TH. The SM Codex and Supplements make non "Generic Marines" entirely pointless unless you are going heavy on codex specific units. I would be putting a hold on buying any army or units until the majority of Psychic Awakening and Legends (important for BA) is released, as that may or may not invalid or create new builds.

I'm still a newby with my Blood Angels, and still struggling to balance the troops section etc.

But i would drop 1 Stormtalon so you can upgrade some units of yours. (-178p)
also drop the naked scout unit (-55p)

Give 1 unit of your snipers camo cloak for +2 cover (+15p)
i would also bring 4 more sanguinary guard with power fists (+128p)
as extra troops i would bring a tactical squad with a heavy weapon (lascannon) (+90p)
this will bring you back to 1999 points

the lascannon was just an example, you can change this for your own flavour and maybe save some more points by picking a cheaper weapon and give your second sniper unit some cloaks
i wouldn't bring the other flyer to, i don't think it would win it's points back. but you probably bring it for fluff or model reasons?
if you don't, drop it and take something else (a dreadnought of some aggressors or something)

i wouldn't wait till spychic awakening, it's probably an additional rulebook wich you lpay a few times but after a while you go back to the normal rules, just like vigilus.
