View Full Version : Ultramarines to Blood Angels

It's also a hammer

Hi bought the BA codex yesterday as am thinking of changing my Ultramarines into blood Angels (only a few head swaps and shoulder pad swaps will be required along side getting the BA specific units). Now I know they don't have centurions or storm talons but is there anywhere that suggests BA can take grav canons in tactical or Dev squads like the generic Dex?

Officially nope there isnt...they are limited to grav gun in tac squad unfortunately. I field grav cannon centurians as allied units but painted up in BA colours...justify it in the fluff that they are part of a blood debt with a codex chapter on long term loan.

I reserve the right to be wrong here - I only have the old codex - but, I don't believe there to be anything in the codex, unless there's a line saying something like "can take weapons from the space marine codex".

More to the point tho is that a separate codex SHOULD be different - including downsides - else - what's the point. The flavour comes from "they do X better but not as good at Y".

by the way, Blood Angels are a fantastic army, the death company make for insanely good assault unit and the death company deadnought is awesome stuff with blood talons.
