Redeye Legio Campaign Blood Angel Armor Convoy

I just finish the campaign at Legio Malaysia. I would like to reveal my BA Mech list I used in the campaign. This is a modified version of my previous Armor Convoy list.

Lib HQ (Str 10 Sword + 5+ Shield)

Assault Termies (4 Hammer 1 Claw)

Sang Priest

Furioso Lib Dread (Wings + Might of Ancient)

2 X Baal Predator (TL Assault Cannon and Heavy Bolter Sponson )

2 X Predator Annilator ( TL lascannon and Lascanon sponson )

Storm Raven (TL Assault Cannon + TL Multi Melta)

2 X Assault Squad ( Meltagun)

Dedicated Transport

2 X Razorback ( Lascannon + TL Plasma Gun)

Overall I must say that this list perform better than my previous list both in the campaign and off. The Storm raven with the Terminator and Dread make a huge impact in the game. Now the rest of the army just provides fire support while the Storm raven with the deadly cargo goes for the kill.

Also I also change in tactical uses of the army nowadays. Last time I used to go into this tight defensive formation which did show some success but proven too rigid to adapt. Nowadays the whole army can eitier go into this tight castling formation or loose formation. Which mean I eitier reserve everything or every unit is scatter all over the place. It’s good against nasty deathstar unit or anyone with crap load of pie template weapons. As I can split up and not get my tank line overrun. Also taking advantage of my fast tank I can displace quickly so I can afford to go aggressive to enemies who are turtling or evade enemies that are to close.

However this list still suffer the same pitfalls my entire previous BA Mech list. Especially list that have a lot of long range high redundancy high Str weapons. All it takes even a couple of stuns and shaken and I am pretty much out of the fight. Assault Terminator and Lib Dreadnought are nasty but if support is compromise then they die from overwhelming numbers.

Anyway I was actually planning to put them to vacation much earlier but because of Legio campaign I decided to give them another shot. Since it the only army I have that fully painted and WYSIWYG. So i guess with the campaign over i be putting them on vacation and be working on another army for KDU Magacon.


  1. dude, your list is solid..
    and since KDU is not that far away, I'd suggest for you to stick with this army instead of working on a new one..

  2. From my experience with competition. Time is a huge factor to consider.

    This list require time to think of overall strategy and deployment. As mech shooty I cant afford to lose ground where the game end by average of turn 3-4.

    I need another list where i can have the advantage by Turn 1-2
