|The Knight of Blood as they were for Adepticon|
|And again from the top.|
As you can see I went with the lascannon with twin-linked plasma cannon variant for these guys. This configuration is all the rage on the interwebz these days, and for good reason. Aside from the flexibility this weapons load out provides, having two weapons also adds an extra level of survivability to the vehicle. As you can also see from these pictures I have 3 of them. One is going to be with a five man assualt squad with a flamer. The other two are going to be bought for two squads of Devastators. This allows them to get to good firing positions more quickly for Dawn of War deployments or if I get lousy terrain in my deployment zone. For the most part though the Dev's rides will be there to help add to the ranged fire of the army as well as act as taxis for the assualt marines and death company should their rides get blown out from under them.
Now, we can't just be adding a few Razorbacks to the army and call it good can we? No, I don't think so. I really want to make sure that this army has the feel of a Blood Angels army, so I want to make sure it has some of the signiture units from the codex. To that end I will be running a unit of Death Company in a Razorback. I will be equipping one of them with a bolt pistol and power weapon, one with a bolter and powerfist, and the other three will all have bolters and chainswords. They will also be accompanied by a Chaplain to make them even more potent in close combat.

The other signiture unit I really wanted to get into the army was a Baal predator. I love these things and have wanted to model and paint one up since I started the army. Well at Adepticon I finally got around to buying one and have since gotten this bad boy assembled and painted up. I went with the full dakka load out. Twin- linked assualt cannons, heavy bolter sponson and I even added the storm bolter. This think can throw out up to 12 shots per turn!
|I have named this bad boy Supressor.|
So as I get this on the tabletops and playtest it all I may end up making some tweaks and changes, but that's where the army stands for now. So here is a pic of the whole thing together (except the 5 man assualt squad which is still a work in progress!)
