Relics of the new Angel’s Blade book have been seen – come see the new weapons of the Blood Angels!
*Update: New Image via Games Workshop*
We also get a look at some of the wargear and a quick note as to what some of the new stuff is:
The Relics have some good options in there – I am particularly interested in the Gilded Crozius. That thing could do some real damage to Power Armor and bikers…Also, the Blood Shard giving counter-attack to a unit seems decent enough but I’m not thrilled about the price tag.
But don’t overlook the wargear either. Blood Angels basically just got an ammo runt! I guess all that Ork fighting they did back in the day finally paid off. I’m also curious as to who’s getting access to that Grav-Amp. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be Devastator squads but we’ll have to wait and see.
Finally, I like the fact that this book spells out that these rules are to REPLACE their counterparts in Codex: Blood Angels. There is no confusion in that wording. Assault Squads and Devastators Squads have been updated with Angel’s Blade.
If you didn’t have a healthy respect for the Death Company Chaplains before you might want to re-evaluate that.
