Warhammer 40k - Dark Angels
Dark Angels are a sub-faction inside the Warhammer 40k Adeptus Astartes / Space Marines faction and distinguish themselves with weapons and rules unique to them.
A 1st founding Space Marine chapter, they hold the distinction of being the 1st legion to be formed over 10,000 years ago. Often described as first among equals.
The chapter is renowned for secrecy, hiding a dark past in Warhammer 40k, the Dark Angels hatred of their infernal counterparts, the Chaos Space Marines, is especially intense as they search the galaxy for the Fallen.
In addition to favouring powerful-but-risky plasma weaponry, Dark Angels field two distinct companies in their hunt for Chaos corruption: Ravenwing are comprised of large numbers of fast-moving units and tactical versatility.
And the Deathwing: a unique force renowned for the large amount of Tactical Dreadnought Armour it fields, and it’s stubbornness in the face of overwhelming odds.
Sons of the first Primarch Lion el Johnson, a master tactician and blademaster renown for his honour and skill, often acting as a law unto himself.
