I am new in this forum, and I wanted to introduce myself by expose my Blood Angels army list. It's mainly for fighting ork players.

1000pts :

HQ :
Chaplain, PF, plasma pistol, jump packs. 160 pts

Troops :
2 X 5 assault space marines, sergent with power fist. 330 pts

Elite :
3 + 2 Death company marines, jump packs. 85 pts

Support :
5 Devastators, 4 lascannons. 290 pts
1 Baal predator with Heavy Bolters. 125 pts
Total 995 pts
Chaplain with death company squad for big offence.
Rapid units, good offense.

Should I remplace the Devastators with Veteran assault ?

Please gives your advices, thoughts and impressions.

No but you should replace the LasCannons with Heavy Boltguns.
How are you using Assault Marines as troops?

the assault troops went troop choices in the last Blood angel codex

Yeah, it's a troop choice.
Heavy bolters instead of lascannons ? not a bad idea. But the last time i played my devastators were very useful against the looted tank. Because if i get heavy bolters, i will do an average of 5- 7 orks dead in 1 turn ( praticarly nothing ! ) so i prefer taking my lascannons and destroy easily all tanks, orks helis and mega armored nobs.

any other thoughts ?

I'd definitely swap the Devs for the VAS. Used a VAS squad a number of times now and they more than make up their points. Also, IMHO, they are more fluffy.

If you want big guns, for the points you could go for 5 ABs with MMs or a bike squad with 2 Meltas and attach an AB?? MUCH more devastating!
