Warhammer 40k - Blood Angels
Blood Angels are a sub-faction inside the Warhammer 40k Adeptus Astartes / Space Marines faction and distinguish themselves with weapons and rules unique to them.
The Blood Angels are a 1st founding chapter that served with distinction during the Imperium’s galaxy-spanning civil war over 10,000 years ago and are one of the longest-serving groups of warriors in Warhammer 40k.
Blood Angel Space Marines are best known for their bloodthirst in combat, and preference for a rapid assault from orbiting cruisers and barges; landing directly amidst the enemy and using the confusion to roll up flanks in a series of lightning strikes.
Blood Angels make heavy use a combination of jump packs and their own mass as a weapon; accustomed to descending upon the enemy as a host of avenging angels and ending a battle before it truly begins. Scions of the most beloved son of the Emperor, the Primarch Sanguinius, they are a testament to his strength but suffer from a hidden rage forged from the death echoes of their beloved Primarch.
