The way it is....

A blog that is mostly surrounding my obsession with Games Workshop's many, many fine products but will occasionally feature posts about my many other geeky hobbies!

Vapnartak, Decision Made

Ok, so I've mulled it over for a long, long time and I've decided I'll be rocking Vapnartak with The Sanguinor heading up my Blood Angels. Now whilst he is an awful lot of points to include within a 1k list he is allot of points for a reason, and at last years tournament there were a high proportion of the players there running with Daemon Princes and the like and they all seemed to do fairly well.

The list I'm planning on running is as follows:

1 x The Sanguinor, Exemplar of the Host 275 pts
1 x Sanguinary Priest (with Power Sword and Jump Pack) 90 pts
1 x 10 man Assault Squad (Jump Packs, 2 x Meltaguns, 1 x Sargeant with Power Fist) 235 pts
1 x 10 man Assault Squad (Jump Packs, 2 x Meltaguns, 1 x Sargeant with Power Fist) 235 pts
1 x 6 man Assault Squad (Jump Packs, 1 x Meltaguns, 1 x Sargeant with Power Fist) 153 pts
Total Points - 988

So yes, its a very small aggressive list and I will be aiming to get stuck into my opponents as soon as possible in the game and trying to table my opponents - a fairly simple strategy which I'm hoping will serve me well. Fielding this list also gives me the incentive to get the Sanguinor painted up!

Thoughts, suggestions, comments appreciated as always peeps!


  1. I think you've offset the cost of Sanguinor by not going over the top with any expensive upgrades elsewhere in the list. You still have 28 models in 1000 pts, which is not bad for marines.

    You have speed (jump packs), anti-tank (meltaguns), anti-infantry (combat) and the element of surprise (decent of angels). You should do well.

    Good luck for the tournament.


  2. Thanks for the feedback, always nice to get a bit of re-assurance in these things!

    So far at these tournaments I've placed pretty poorly at the end of the day so it's not gonna take much to improve on my previous performance lol

  3. You don't have any option other than to be highly aggressive with that list too, which simplifies things somewhat :P
