Finally, something has happened.

Hello, everyone. I hope all are well. I have been waiting for the new codex to be dropped, and it's finally out. There are already a large number of people that do the leaks and rumors and whatnot, so there is no need to cover that ad nauseam. There are still formations that are coming out, so it will take some time for the community to digest what Blood Angels actually have to work with. A few things to remember are that those sites pump out quick first impressions because that's what they do. It is always best to play the models you like; however, well-known  sources can help you fill out the rest of your army. This includes which units fill certain roles the best way or weapon load outs for units which can be quite important (Tip: It's usually most efficient to not do much, instead getting the unit that already has it built into the cost.). Finally, you may want to purchase units in a paced manner as you can never be entirely sure that a GW faq may come down and ruin your unit. Get out there and get some games in and playtest to see what is working for you and your play style.

Jump Packs

Jump pack usage is particularly relevant to Blood Angels players.

This can be found in the Unit section under Jump Units.

Angels of Death have the complete breakdown on this here.

To actually get into assault, it is always better to use your jump pack in the movement phase.

What if things are looking a little desperate and it is time to make a calculated gamble to get off Hammer of Wrath? Up to 5 inches is pretty much a lock. 6" is still over 90%. 7" drops it to over 80%. 8" will drop it to 65% and everything else is under 50% after that. Unless you think it will be last turn or a way to kill a unit to take the objective, those Hammer of Wrath attacks are not that particularly strong nor valuable compared to the increased chance of actually making your assault.

I nabbed a Techmarine off of an Internet auction for my son. I put on a plasma pistol to help remind me if he has a servo-harness on where he gets a twin-linked plasma pistol and flamer. Maybe I should add a scope to remember it's twin-linked too...

Your basic Techmarine comes in at 50 points from the Elites slot. It can fix vehicles on a 5+, bolster a ruin adding +1 to the cover save and has one extra S8 AP1 attack. For 25 points more you can upgrade to a servo-harness to be able to shoot that twin-linked plasma pistol and the flamer (as long as you don't fire with your boltgun or bolt pistol) and you get an extra S8 AP1 attack (2 total) and fix vehicles on a 4+. If the Techmarine came with Feel No Pain or a 5-6+ invulnerable save, I'm sure we would see a lot more of them on the table. If you pull them out of a vehicle, try to not leave them out in the open. Have them blocked to line of sight or in a squad hopefully within the Sanguinary Priest Feel No Pain bubble.
