I'm testing the following list next. What do you think are it's most downfall? Any alterations you would suggest? I play in a too competitive environment for my taste. Missions vary with a Mix of ITC/maelstorm games.

Here is my thought counter:

Dual batallion and vanguard. 9cp for the game.

Captain with jump pack - thunder hammer - storm shield - angel's wing
Captain with jump pack - thunder hammer - storm shield - death visions of sanguinius - hero of the chapter: gift of foresight
Sanguinary priest with jump pack - icon of the angel
Mephiston - unleash rage - quickening - wings of sanguinius
Astorath - canticle of hate - catechism of fire

5x scouts - boltguns - chainsword on sergeant
5x scouts - boltguns - chainsword on sergeant
5x intercessors - auto bolt rifles - power fist on sergeant - auxiliary grenade launcher
5x intercessors - auto bolt rifles - power fist on sergeant - auxiliary grenade launcher
5x incursors - haywire mine
5x incursors - haywire mine

Sanguinary ancient - encarmine sword - angelus boltgun - standard of sacrifice - warlord: soulwarden
8x sanguinary guard - 8x angelus boltgun - 5x encarmine sword - 3x power fist
5x death company intercessors - auto bolt rifles - thunder hammer - auxiliary grenade launcher

Supressors
Supressors

Eliminators
Eliminators
Contemptor mortis dreadnought - 2x twin autocannon

2000 points.

Have to say that the death company are more of a filler for 114p. Also the incursors might serve better as something else? They are for some board control and mines are there for the rule of cool.. so there are atleast these two places to free up points. Also had a debate with myself between second smash captain and sanguinor buffing the sanguinary guard. I hope I can bring the sanguinary guard in T3 to benefit from savage echoes so a solid alpha strike potential from two smash captain won.. this time.

Thoughts? Any experiences with competitive blood angels? The Internet is lacking content for competitive blood angels, hopefully not for a reason..

I'm most certain my next opponent will be an Ad Mech gunline, but I'm not building this list in one opponent on my mind anyhow.. so this is something for longer though. Although next LGS tourney in few weeks is at 1,5k and I'm sick of playing my Raven guard..

Some advice I've been running a mixed admech/ba sang guard bomb army,
Give the scouts combat knives + chainsword on sgt (55 pts you get 17 attacks on a charge wounding at worst on a 5+)
You lose the bolt pistol on the sgt but he can throw a grenade

Axes are amazing on the sanguinary guard str 5 means you wound at worst on a 4+ and ap 2 gets most enemies to their invuln saves, consider a libby with jump pack and quake bolts to deepstrike with them (also asteroth with upon wings of fire with the +2 to charge and exploding hits makes the guard extremely dangerous)

After a long weekend of gaming, I'm altering a bit my list.

Here's where's it at now and going into test game within couple of hours.

Astorath
Mephiston
Smash captain with angel's wing, hero of the chapter: gift of foresight, death visions of the sanguinius
Sanguinary priest with icon of the angel

5x scouts
5x scouts
5x intercessors with stalkers and power fist
5x intercessors with stalkers and power fist
5x tactical squad with lascannon
5x tactical squad with lascannon

Sanguinary ancient with banner of sacrifice, warlord: Soulwarden
10x sanguinary guard
10x sanguinary guard
Relic contemptor mortis dreadnought with 2x twin lascannon, cyclone missile launcher
Relic contemptor mortis dreadnought with 2x twin lascannon, cyclone missile launcher

...changes due to. To play better the second turn approach, I want more dakka, so added 10 lascannons. (was troubled between triple whirlwinds for indirect fire vs. the lascannons) Two blobs of sanguinary guard are for target saturation and increased chance of maximising the stratagem usage on a full man unit.

We'll see how it goes.

I'd suggest picking up a jump pack librarian with quickening and unleash rage to support your sang guard
Quake bolts are a good upgrade as well counters the -1 to hit with fists/hammers
(Out of deepstrike if you get quickening off you only need a 5" charge give him the angel wings for deny overwatch and reroll charges for more fun)
Ps in this case you can take pinion on the smash cap so he can fall back then charge something else
