Lord Commander Dante
"Commander Dante is one of the most experienced and able
Space Marine Chapter Masters and has ruled over the Blood
Angels for over a thousand years." -Codex Blood Angels
Dante is a very powerful model on the table. It has been my experience that Dante has the power to change the outcome of the battle. He excels at gathering kill points. He can lead your primary assault units into the heart of the enemy. From your opponents perspective, he cannot be ignored. He excels at reacting to and stopping your opponents attempts to achieve their plans on the battlefield.
The most effective method of using Dante is to keep him near Corbulo. The combination of Preferred Enemy and Furious Charge on a model with 6 attacks on the charge is tremendously effective.
If you are not using Dante, I encourage you to try it. You will not be disappointed.
If you are like me, then you are playing Blood Angels because they wreck stuff in assaults. I guarantee you that Dante wrecks stuff in the assault phase. It is just bonus that he has a melta-gun pistol.
