Goatboy’s Warhammer 40K: Death Company Devastation

Goatboy here again with a thought process army build for Blood Angels – black and crazed Blood Angels.

I talked about how I think they do the best with gaining an extra wound on their normal Tactical based units.  I think there is a ton of meat there to think about – especially with units like the Death Company breathing down the throats of an enemy.  Heck just their  current mix of Stratagems can become very interesting in this new set of rules – extra long charges, movement capabilities, and other fun options.  So with that – let’s see how many DC I can fit in a viable army to create something nutty.

Theoryhammer

First – let’s figure out what the cost of a Death Company guy might be.

Death Company – Current Points = 19 * 20% = 23pts Each.
Jump Pack – 2pts
Basic points for a non T hammer guy – 25pts each with Jump Pack
Thunder Hammer is 15 points most likely – so will have a few in each unit just to hedge or bets.

A unit of 15 guys with just Chainswords should run 375pts.  We could easily do 3 units of jerks to ensure we get a good amount of board coverage, a lot of bullying options, and maybe some ability to do some damage.

From there – we need 3 troop choices, a few HQs, and maybe see if we can throw in some kind of damage option in case we need to shoot some stuff.  Or we just say eff off I am coming for your candy.  I think will just come for your candy.

Death Company Wave of Death and Stuff – V.1

Blood Angels Battalion – 0CP

-HQ-
Sanguinor – 140pts
Lemartes – Canticle of Hate, Litany of Hate, Mantra of Strength – 110pts
Mephiston – Wings of Sanguinius, Quickening – 170pts

-Troops-
Assault Intercessor Squad X 5 – 95pts
Assault Intercessor Squad X 5 – 95pts
Assault Intercessor Squad X 5 – 95pts

-Elites-
Death Company – Chainsword/Bolt Pistol X 13, Thunder Hammer X 2, Jump Packs – 405pts
Death Company – Chainsword/Bolt Pistol X 13, Thunder Hammer X 2, Jump Packs – 405pts
Death Company – Chainsword/Bolt Pistol X 14, Thunder Hammer X 1, Powerfist, Jump Packs – 400pts
Sanguinary Ancient – Relic – Wrath of Baal, Warlord – Gift of Foresight – 85pts

PTS: 2000 CP: +12

Death Company Tactics

This army is set up to blood up and push forward with a very fast set of jerks.  Almost everyone goes 12″ and the auras and abilities start to stack up pretty quickly.  Also – as they all can fly even high flyers have to be careful when these guys come knocking on your door.  I doubt it would win a lot – but it will be very fluffy to see on the table top as an old school Death Company army from back in the day.  Plus it plays a royal flush of named Characters – Gold, Black, and Vampire!

For Sanguinius!
