Army List – Brazen Angels Space Marines

I’ve posted once or twice about my Brazen Angels Space Marine army. But I’m not sure if I ever posted the army list.

This is the 2000 point list I worked out when I decided to round out the collection.

As some of you may know I originally planned a 3000 point list, which was similar to this but with lots of Land Raider dedicated transports (and a Razorback for the Devastators) added. It also had two Sanguinary Priests, one to support the Assault Squad and one to accompany the Tactical Squad riding the Storm Raven.

In this army, the squad with the melta weapons goes in the gunship for opportunistic tank-hunting while the gunship also acts as a general mobile reserve, as does the Baal Predator. The Predator Annihilator provides dedicated anti-tank support. The Chaplain will lead the Assault Squad to maximise their destructive potential. The idea of an all-missile launcher Devastator Squad originally came from @CaitoGalenus. I’ve used such squads in the past and they are surprisingly effective.

Carriers

Those sterling chaps at Spartan Games have released previews of the forthcoming EotBS and Prussian Carriers.

Kiyohime Class Assault Carrier

Rhine Class Fleet Carrier

 

Of the two, I think my favourite is the Rhine. I like the bridge suspended over the runway and the heavy gun on the bow. The Carriers for the other three Dystopian Wars nations have been out for some time now, the EotBS and Prussians having received Sky Fortresses at that time. But seeing these two previewed makes me think we can probably expect to see the FDA, CoA and KoB Sky Fortresses previewed over the next week or so. I of course am really looking forward to the possibility of a Britanian Sky Fortress.

 

As a bonus, Spartan released this fun image of a Prussian Metzger Robot ‘surfing’ on top of a Rhine Fleet Carrier. Sadly Spartan have made it clear that this design will not be going into production. Personally I think this is a shame as it would have been the greatest collectors’ miniature ever!
