6th Edition Descent of Angels Lists

Based on the ideas of the previous two posts, I've put together a couple lists that should work well. I haven't play tested these lists; they're hypothetical lists that I will be building and hope to test in the near future. Until they're built, I' be concentrating on playing the Executioners.

List 1:

Blood Angels Detachment
Reclusiarch w/ power fist and jump pack                                                               170

Librarian w/ jump pack                                                                                           125

2 Sanguinary Priests w/ power swords and jump packs                                          180

10 Assault Marines w/ power fist, 2 meltaguns, jump packs                                   235

10 Assault Marines w/ power sword, 2 meltaguns, jump packs                              225

10 Assault Marines w/ power sword, 2 meltaguns, jump packs                              225

5 Assault Marines w/ power sword, meltagun, infernus pistol, jump packs            140


Imperial Guard Detachment
Company Command Squad w/ autocannon                                                             60

Platoon Command Squad w/ 2 flamers, autocannon                                               50

Infantry Squad w/ flamer, autocannon                                                                     65

Infantry Squad w/ flamer, autocannon                                                                     65

Heavy Weapon squad w/ 3 autocannons                                                                 75

Heavy Weapon squad w/ 3 autocannons                                                                 75

Griffon                                                                                                                     75

Detachment
Aegis Defense Line w/ Icarus Lascannon                                                               85

Total                                                                                                                    1,850

This is probably the more competitive list. The Imperial Guard deploy behind the Defense Line and act as 42 fairly durable wounds carrying 10 autocannons. The flamers are just there so the guardsmen have some way to deal with assaulting troops. The Griffon should be equally hard to kill if I can deploy it out of sight, and should help deal with massed infantry. The deep striking portion of the army includes 35 marines and four characters, which should be enough to overwhelm most enemies when they all show up turn 2.

List 2: 

Blood Angel Detachment: 
Commander Dante                                                                                               225

Lemates and 4 Death Company w/ power fist, jump packs                                315

2 Sanguinary Priests w/ power swords and jump packs                                     180


10 Assault Marines w/ power sword, 2 meltaguns, jump packs                         225

10 Assault Marines w/ power sword, 2 meltaguns, jump packs                         225

5 Sanguinary Guard w/ 2 infernus pistols                                                          220

Imperial Guard Detachment
Company Command Squad w/ autocannon                                                       60

Platoon Command Squad w/ autocannon                                                          40

Infantry Squad w/ autocannon                                                                           60

Infantry Squad w/ autocannon                                                                           60

Heavy Weapon squad w/ 3 autocannons                                                            75

Heavy Weapon squad w/ 3 autocannons                                                            75

Detachment
Aegis Defense Line w/ Icarus Lascannon                                                          85

Total                                                                                                               1,850

This list is probably not quite as competitive, as it lacks the sheer number of bodies found in List 1. That said, it looks more fun to play and has more of a Blood Angel feel. It sacrifices the Griffon and Imperial Guard flamers in order to upgrade two of the Assault squads into Death Company and Sanguinary Guard, as well replace the Reclusarch and Librarian with Dante and Lemartes. These squads give army a lot more hitting power, at the cost of bodies and durability.

These two lists use the same core of Imperial Guard, so that'll be my next project (along with painting the Ultramarines). The lists are just plans at the moment and I'm not too familiar with the IG yet, so I'm very open to suggestions. Let me know if you have any.
