A campaign supplement for Warhammer 40,000, containing a story from the beginning of the 13th Black Crusade from the perspective of the Blood Angels, featuring new rules content for that Chapter.
The shadow of a huge fleet of Crimson Slaughter and Black Legion forces falls across the Diamor System, as Abaddon the Despoiler’s 13th Black Crusade is launched. This shadow is met by the righteous fury of the Blood Angels; leading a mighty coalition of Adeptus Mechanicus and Imperial Knights, the Sons of Sanguinius fight bitterly against the servants of Chaos.
Yet the fires of war that consume the worlds of the Diamor System are revealing dark secrets, harbingers of a terrible doom that even the Blood Angels will be hard-pressed to prevent coming to fruition…

With millennia of experience and battle-wisdom between the, the Chapter Ancients march across the theatre of war with heavy weapons roaring. Fist-sized shells rain down as these revered Dreadnoughts open fire, anchoring the front lines of the Blood Angels with their assaults. Librarian Dreadnoughts loose the powers of their augmented minds blasting enemies apart with crackling arcs of light. Massive, imposing engines of war, the Chapter Ancients are unstoppable as time itself.

Drawn from the elite 1st Company, the Sternguard Veterans of the Blood Angels are amongst the finest warriors in the galaxy. Each is a true hero in his own right, his deeds recorded by the Chapter for history to recall. Experts in ranged warfare, carrying modified boltguns designed to fire a variety of powerful ammunition, these Blood Angels can attack from a distance, punching through the thickest armour with an ease verging on supernatural.
The 5 man Blood Angels Sternguard Veteran Squad comes with a massive amount of variety and options, providing every opportunity to create a unique squad, befitting their role as some of the Space Marines finest heroes.
This set includes 5 different pairs of legs; 5 individual torso fronts; 13 unique heads (7 helmeted and 6 bare); 16 individual shoulder pads; and 5 unique backpacks.
Also included is a Blood Angels Upgrade Pack. Totally compatible with all existing multi-part Space Marine kits, this upgrade pack contains a sprue of amazing parts for Blood Angels fans.
A demonstration of immense power and aggressions, Blood Angels Assault Squads strike suddenly and without mercy. Theirs is the mastery of flanking attacks, low-orbit drops and line-breaker charges; their aggressive fighting style suiting the violence of hand-to-hand combat. Roaring into battle with jump packs, the chainswords and thunder hammers of a Blood Angels Assault Squad is for many enemies of the Imperium the last thing they ever see.
This box set contains everything you need to make 5 multi-part plastic Blood Angels Assault Marines, with amazing scope for customisation.The entire squad can be modelled with or without jump packs, as 5 complete assemblies are included with and without harnesses and backpacks. There are 5 pairs of running leg assemblies, 6 shoulder pads and an array of Purity Seals, scroll cases and ammo pouches.
More comfortable with the Red Thirst than afraid of it, Vanguard Veteran Squads of the Blood Angels are supremely skilled warriors. Roaring into battle with whichever weapon suits their temper, they fight at close quarters with an agility and ability that makes xenos warbeasts and traitor xenos appear cumbersome by comparison. Soaring into the skies on jump packs, destroying the enemy with precision and skill; Vanguard Veteran Squads aim to complete their mission whatever the odds.
The 5 man Space Marine Vanguard Veteran Squad contains a huge variety of weapon options with which to arm the unit. When building the squad there are 5 different sets of running legs; 5 unique torso fronts; 16 different shoulder pads; 9 heads (8 helmeted, 1 bare); and 5 individual jump packs.
Given the honour of accompanying high-ranking Space Marine officers into battle, Command Squads fight hard to prove their worth. This is especially true of the Blood Angels – throwing themselves into the most desperate of battles and facing down the direst threats in order to atone for their hidden failings.
This plastic box set contains everything required to make a 6-man Blood Angels Command Squad. This includes a multi-part plastic Space Marine Commander, including nine different weapon options, three variant heads and additional parts to further customise your model.

You’ll receive Traitor’s Hate and Angels Blade.
Deployed only when a truly appalling number of battle-brothers have fallen to the Black Rage, a Death Company Strike Force is as tragic as it is effective. Guided to their fate by the spiritual beacon of a Death Company Chaplain, backed up by the effective assaults of their Dreadnought brethren, they rip and tear through enemy battle-lines with no regard at all for their own survival. Few enemies will survive this battering ram of absolute berserk aggression.

You’ll receive 3 sets of Death Company (totalling 15 models), a Death Company Dreadnought (which you can build as a Blood Angels Librarian Dreadnought or Furioso Dreadnought), and a Blood Angels Chaplain with Jump Pack.
Teleporting directly into the heart of battle, this specialised formation, drawn from the ranks of the Blood Angels’ 1st Company – the Archangels – is feared for its sudden and swift vengeance. Centuries of combat experience mean they strike like the sword of Sanguinius himself, claws crackling and storm bolters blazing with righteous fury. The few enemies that can react quickly enough to bring their weapons to bear find their retaliation ricocheting harmlessly from Terminator armour, seconds before being swept away by a howling gale.

The Battle Demi-companies of the Blood Angels are swift and deadly formations. Versed in long range and close combat equally, they react and adapt extremely quickly to changing battlefield scenarios. The thundering bolters of the Tactical Squads and Devastators quickly thin the ranks of an advancing foe and, once their tails are turned, the swift onset of the Assault Marines annihilates any morale they may have had left. The thirst for battle that the Blood Angels display compels them to force this Demi-company ever forward, tearing apart those who defy in a surge of carnage.
This bundle contains the miniatures necessary to assemble a Blood Angels Battle Demi-company, a formation found in Angel’s Blade. You’ll receive a Blood Angels Furioso Dreadnought, a Devastator Squad, a Blood Angels Assault Squad, a Blood Angels Company Command and three Blood Angels Tactical Squads!

This bundle contains the miniatures necessary to field an Archangels Demi-company, a formation found in Angel’s Blade. You’ll receive a huge quantity of miniatures:
