Nobility. Sacrifice. Glory. These are the hallmarks of all Adeptus Astartes, and no Chapter embodies these ideals with greater zeal than the Blood Angels. Swift and sure, they are the Emperor’s blade, and they strike without mercy. Yet for all their accomplishments and deeds of heroism since the Great Crusade, the Blood Angels suffer from a fatal flaw.

Gene-sons of the angel-winged Primarch Sanguinius, the Blood Angels descend into battle on flaming wings to stand between the Emperor’s servants and the heretical and alien hordes that seek to destroy them. Masters of the rapid assault, the mechanised offensive and the swift airborne strike, they have carved out a legacy of victories that stretches across the ages.If your Army Faction is ADEPTUS ASTARTES, you can use this Sons of Sanguinius Detachment rule.
Though they strive to restrain it, the murderous ferocity of the Blood Angels simmers beneath the surface of their thoughts. In battle, this rage drives them towards the foe and lends great strength to their blows.Each time an ADEPTUS ASTARTES unit from your army is selected to fight, if that unit made a Charge move this turn, until the end of the phase, add 1 to the Strength and Attacks characteristics of melee weapons equipped by models in that unit.
When Sanguinius battled Horus, his magnificent blade was tragically shattered against the Warmaster’s profane battle plate. The shards were gathered up and new swords forged to incorporate them, each one gifted to a different successor Chapter.
ADEPTUS ASTARTES model only. The bearer’s melee weapons have the [ANTI-CHAOS 5+] and [LANCE] abilities.
This warrior is a true artist both on and off the battlefield. His talents are reflected in the exquisite workmanship of his wargear, for he insists upon personally crafting his weapons of war.
ADEPTUS ASTARTES model only. Improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of the bearer’s weapons by 1, and the bearer has a Save characteristic of 2+.
Entrusted to one whose faith in the primogenitor is profound, the Icon of the Angel takes the form of a small shrine upon the bearer’s backpack. Through displaying it, this warrior reminds his brothers of the heretics who fled after laying low the Angel, exhorting them to let no enemy escape their grasp again.
ADEPTUS ASTARTES model only. Each time an enemy unit (excluding MONSTERS and VEHICLES) within Engagement Range of the bearer’s unit is selected to Fall Back, models in that enemy unit must take Desperate Escape tests as if their unit was Battle-shocked. When doing so, if that enemy unit is also Battle-shocked by other means, subtract 1 from each of those Desperate Escape tests.
This exquisitely crafted mask is a thing of dark beauty to the Blood Angels, and a sign of impending doom to their enemies. The unchanging expression of the mask inspires fear and uncertainty even in confident enemies. They see no anger, pain or elation on the wearer’s face – clues as to the warrior’s state of mind in a duel.
ADEPTUS ASTARTES model only. While an enemy unit (excluding MONSTERS and VEHICLES) is within Engagement Range of the bearer’s unit, halve the Objective Control characteristic of models in that unit.
The ADEPTUS ASTARTES and CHARACTER keywords are used in the following Blood Angels datasheets:
Lance weapons are deadly on the charge.Weapons with [LANCE] in their profile are known as Lance weapons. Each time an attack is made with such a weapon, if the bearer made a Charge move this turn, add 1 to that attack’s Wound roll.
Some weapons can inflict fatal injuries on any foe, no matter their resilience.Weapons with [LETHAL HITS] in their profile are known as Lethal Hits weapons. Each time an attack is made with such a weapon, a Critical Hit automatically wounds the target.
Certain weapons are the bane of a particular foe.Weapons with [ANTI-KEYWORD X+] in their profile are known as Anti weapons. Each time an attack is made with such a weapon against a target with the keyword after the word ‘Anti-’, an unmodified Wound roll of ‘x+’ scores a Critical Wound.
