Pre-Heresy Blood Angels (Chaos Codex with Primarch - Daemon Prince!)


So, in the hopes the new BA codex is still kickin it, I do have a backup plan in place in case I dont love it (which I will). I will be building a pre-heresy blood angel army as follows:




Daemon Prince = Sanguinius (Avatar of Aurellius Model as show) works awesome!
Daemon Lord = SM Captain
Chaos Raptors = SM Assault Marines
Chaos Marines = SM Tactical Marines
Khorne Beserkers = well, slightly converted khorne berserkers
Chaos Rhino = SM Rhino
Chaos Predator = SM Predator
Dreadnought = SM Dreanought
Terminators = SM Terminators with power weapon from AoBR terminator captain
Obliterators = Obliterators with BA paint scheme OR converted terminators
Lesser Daemons = SM Scouts

Now, I would have to model this up to allow for tournament play, and make sure everyone knew what the deal was. Would you have an issue with any of these counts as models??? I wouldn't, and for one, I love this idea. Your Thoughts?

What sparked this as Im trying to trade away my painted lizardmen for a number of chaos models, primarily khorne berserkers and obliterators...

I would likely have the following in a 1750 list:
Daemon Prince (Sanguinius) with Wings, Warp Time (~155)
10x Chaos Marines (with a mark of Khorne or Slaanesh)
(flamer/ missile) (~170 without mark)
10x Chaos Marines (with a mark of Khorne or Slaanesh) (flamer
/ missile) (~170 without mark)
8x Berserkers in Rhino (Skull Capt - power fist, personal icon) (~210 + 35 w./ Rhino)
8x Berserkers in Rhino (Skull Capt - power fist, personal icon) (~210 + 35 w./ Rhino)
6x Raptors (power first, melta gun) (~170)
Predator (A.C., Heavy Bolters) (100)
5x Lesser Daemons (Scouts) (65)
3x Obliterators (225)
5x Terminators (150)

Also

Maybe Kharne (as SM captain counts as) (165)

Maybe a Dreadnought (I know people hate them, but they arent that bad)

I would need a little more anti tank, but I like the list thus far...

hmm... nice idea, but I'm not sure the dreadnought or obliterators really gel for me. Especially if you were to use the actual obliterator models. Maybe convert up some techmarines with ridiculous servo-harnesses?

If you're serious about the whole pre-heresy thing though, these may be of some help:
