Predator (with Baal variant parts)
~Standard Caveats folks as we are still WAY out on the timeline for the April Blood Angels codex. I’m getting the vibe that the Blood Angels are going to be the FAST assault marine army. Also, that Tantalus Lander sounds absolutely Fab! There is also chatter the codex will cover not only the Blood Angels but their successor chapters as well. Enjoy and follow more in the BoLS Lounge here.
