In a close-mouthed Angels against a red tide of daemonic invaders. Azrael was accompanied by high-ranking one that the traitorous Luther not just survived to see. Perhaps the greatest example of this occurred on. That the Dark Angels forswore his past for a life of service to the Chapter.
The Supreme Chapter that eschews self-aggrandisement. He dropped dynamic leader. Many fall at this final hurdle. Azrael was chosen as his successor. His ability to manage macro-level strategies Since he was freed during the attack upon the Rock following as well as the tactics of individual squads is extraordinary even for the Noctis Aeterna.

Whatever his origin. This position of knowledge are strengthened by their mental ordeals. Typically constructs attached to their power armour. In this process. Those aspirants amongst the Dark Angels who prove strong enough to survive the process. It is for this reason that the Librarians because psykers are naturally unstable. The mind Space Marines. Space fortitude or immense willpower to control their mental forces. Such precautions are warranted. Most doing great evils or.
While Dark Angels Librarians wield bolters and blades on the battlefield in the manner of their brothers. As such. Yet some of the recruits as those initiated into the Deathwing. Worst of all. To Marine warriors capable of wielding awesome mental powers. All that can be sure is that the winged Daemon Prince speaks too much truth. Some few threatening planets and entire star systems. Terminator armour. To prevent the spread of mutation. Most recruits who do earn their place are utterly incorruptible and completely are ruined in these stages.
Opening their minds to the warp on the battlefield leaves them vulnerable. In such cases.
While Cypher is foremost amongst them. Cautionary tales persist. Ezekiel has fought in thousands of campaigns. In this book are the names of the Fallen that have been captured. Seeing Ezekiel toppled. Ezekiel is no and menace that surrounds these strange beings is only less terrifying a prospect.

Interrogator-Chaplains are in their commitment to compel contrition silent and intense. Interrogator- on they become shadowed mirrors of their Chaplains must weather heretical ranting previous selves. When the Fallen are their own battle-brothers with their silent though certainly these discoveries assail captured and brought back to the dark cells scrutiny.
Confessions are as hard-won as they are rare. This Test of Faith. Upon promotion to his role. The cause of this shift in demeanour is not Interrogator-Chaplains into such grim Chaplains of the Dark Angels unsettle even simply the revelations of the Inner Circle.
From that moment not an easy burden to bear. Master Molocia — an exemplar of his grim profession — died after over three hundred years of service with only ten black pearls. This treasure is stored within the Reclusiam. The black pearls themselves can only be found on the planet of Malmar. Like any most successful Interrogator-Chaplain. In his excesses. No Dark Angel better exemplifies and become a killing machine.
Whether on the battlefield, at council to add another black pearl to his collection. While his of Silence upon the 7th Company. For a wires, mysterious technology that amplifies determination to force those that fall into standard Terran year, the formation was pain beyond endurance.
None who feel its his clutches to speak their secrets has aided unable to utter a sound save for hymnals touch live to tell of it. In part, this is due to the Imperial Creed and the dominion of the and punctuating his sermons with deadly protective nature of not only their ceramite Adeptus Ministorum.
As a result, every strikes from his blazing crozius arcanum armour, but also their rosarius — an amulet Space Marine Chapter had its own cult — the skull-headed cudgel that is both that serves as another mark of office. A practices and its own attendant priests. Its energy field writhes around that can deflect blows and shots that would Marines are known as Chaplains, and for the weapon in crackling arcs, boosting its destroy a ferrocrete bunker.
The Chaplains of the Dark Angels are Whether using a jump pack to descend the keepers of the Reclusiam, the central onto the battlefield like a shadow of shrine within the Rock. They often vengeance, or marching alongside their emerge from that hall of relics to preside brothers on foot, Chaplains are utterly over ancient ceremonies — inducting neophytes into the Chapter with Rites of Initiation, steeling the hearts and minds of recruits and veterans alike with the Vows of Intolerance, and leading all through prayers of dedication to battle, Primarch and Emperor.
In this way, a Chaplain instils strict discipline in his brothers, armouring them within through tenet and catechism. The monastic Dark Angels are inundated with rituals, a bewildering array of ancient rites and traditions, from the Feast of Malediction and the Rite of Sins Renounced, to the three-day Mindchant of the Iron Penance. Many of these rituals involve only small groups of robed and hooded figures, but others are delivered to whole companies or even, very rarely, the entire Chapter.
Some of the observances are instructional, some involve oath-taking, while others are mysterious, leaving the neophytes in awe at the unusual proceedings. All such liturgies reinforce loyalty to the Chapter and the Emperor.
A Chaplain does not just deliver inspiration, however, but also rebuke. Chaplains are daunting figures, for their jet-black livery is adorned with icons of battle and mysterious tokens of ritual. Their skull helms at once evoke the stern image of the immortal Emperor and the grim promise of death. In the midst of conflict, a Chaplain is truly in. Nowhere is this calling more essential performing complex surgeries on grievously wounded warriors, than on the battlefield; amidst the hell of shellfire, explosions and Apothecaries train initiates, tend to the gene-seed databanks, and ceaseless combat, an Apothecary is an unparalleled medic.
Treating the body of a member of the Adeptus Astartes is quite different than administering to a non-augmented human. Only once the heat of battle has dissipated will a Space Marine allow himself to acknowledge the severity of his injuries, and it is then an Apothecary will take them into their longer-term care.
Whether carrying out his work in the small operating space aboard a Thunderhawk gunship, or in the larger apothecarium of a strike cruiser, an Apothecary will lead a team to effect more thorough post-battle surgeries.
Taking out his reductor, the Apothecary commences his most important task, using the specialised device to remove the gene-seed of the dead. From the secrets held within each of these organs, future generations of Space Marines are created, and the continuation of the Chapter is assured. They must show superlative leadership and tactical skills.
Many elements of earlier marks for these battle-brothers to become Masters. Many Battle Companies frequently divide into two Battle Demi- companies. Typically such men served in the Deathwing. Mk X Gravis armour. The position of Lieutenant gives rising leaders vital X Tacticus armour offers substantial protection while allowing experience in command.
To lead the Dark Angels requires a battle-hardened veteran. Where the lauded Captains of other Space Marine Chapters deliver rousing speeches to coalition forces of the Imperium. Mk replace them. None can claim to be more disciplined than the Dark Angels. Yet for all their silent reservations. Such leaders are not only superb strategists. A Company Master meets each challenge with the same intractable resolve. For instance. The longest serving of power armour can still be recognised in all incarnations of and most honoured Lieutenants of the Dark Angels are presented Mk X armour.
All Dark Angels are taciturn and monastic in nature. With a signal. These officers serve as the right hand of their Company Masters. Each Company Master bears additional honorific titles. They shun highly visible. Almost soundlessly. Each of the ten companies of the Dark Angels is led by such a Master. The Dark Angels and their successor Chapters have readily Mk X armour does not have a single appellation.
Company Masters are no less commanding. The most honoured of all Company Ancients is promoted to Chapter Ancient.
Every son of the Lion. After each engagement. Taking after the Company Masters. Many are the acts of extreme their company during the ceremonies accompanied by a hand-selected squad heroism that have been performed by held in the Great Hall of the Rock.
The fought between their respective Primarchs winners of such competitions represent nearly ten thousand years ago. On the use these seasoned soldiers in a variety battlefield. The Codex Dark Angels in the shadow of such ancient individuals embody the honour of their Astartes sanctions the formation of these standards. These of specialists and veterans. Not for them the gold-encrusted armour of an honour guard or the ostentatious plume to denote to all onlookers their exalted station.
Veterans renounce the garish. To be acknowledged before the assembled might of the Dark Angels is a proud and humbling moment — for each of the battle- brothers is.
Should the Dark of their elite nature. While the Legions did of dozens. Roboute Guilliman overlapping fields of fire that won over is girded for war with the finest equipment remembered well the success of single many of the brethren. Intercessor Squads had to prove that they Each member of an Intercessor Squad were as adept in close quarters as they carries some variant of a bolt weapon.

It is common for one or hab-block by hab-block. Here was a centre for any battle line directs his warriors to flawlessly execute the — a core of warriors that could lay down orders of his superiors. Whatever the particular demands of an engagement. During the Battle of Heltopia.
Such as to provide greater battlefield flexibility. After quelling the two members of an Intercessor Squad to swarming advance at one intersection. Intercessor Squads would reboard and race allowing them to fire their explosives towards their next location.

Although now Tactical Squads of a battle will dictate the course of action This grim determination has been displayed must share their role with the Intercessors.
For the Dark Angels. Upon some of these recruitment worlds. Time and again. At need. Nachtwald was originally the main home world of the Lions Sable. Tactical Squads often allowed reinforcements to arrive and secure could be asked to hold ground. Dark Angels fight with tenacity. A Tactical Squad tail end of the battles of the Scouring. The most feral of these planets have nothing but legends of visitors from the sky appearing at regular intervals.
Over time some recruiting worlds have been lost — either permanently. Other planets have smaller outposts. As befits its needs. Whereas other Space Marine squads No matter the foe. The circumstances outgunned. A Tactical Squad skills remain sharp.
When they ran out of ammunition. Although there are many Unforgiven recruiting worlds — the full number of which is known only to the Supreme Grand Master of the Dark Angels — the majority of them are feudal worlds. Every battle-brother is fully trained the Dark Angels used their boltguns as Tactical Squads are composed of versatile with the entire arsenal.
These orbit. Engaging their jump packs. Such dangerous deployments take a toll. Although capable of besting foes in hand-to-hand combat. Inceptor Squads are the perfect complement to the rapid-strike style of the Space Marines. These Primaris Space Unforgiven due to their affinity with the dangerous and powerful Marines are equipped with Mk X Gravis armour and heavy jump technology behind their creation.
It is the role of the close support squads to crack open the enemy lines and to deliver the blow that breaks them entirely. Common tactics include landing alongside a Drop Pod assault to blast out a beachhead. To this end they frequently employ jump packs. With the foe overwhelmed. The distinctive sound of their high calibre shots is swiftly answered by Formidable on their own. This means that the Inceptor Squads when their wearers launch themselves back into the skies with a are capable of putting out enough firepower to halt a charging bounding leap.
In place of howled battle cries. To make such attacks. Plunging deep behind enemy lines. They are often unleashed as the vanguard of an attack. Despite the ground- A single such firearm can stitch a pattern of death to scythe down shaking force with which they land. As Assault Squads carry little in the way of ranged weaponry. Against weaker-willed or for any Company Master. It is their role to sow fear aircraft of the 2nd Company suddenly Even amongst the grim and shadowed and confusion amongst the enemy forces.
A single Reiver mere presence of Assault Squads on the of Mordian. So were the cult armies mistake. Once they reach their destination. There is no site upon into flight. Their streamlined armour has been designed to dampen both noise and resistance as they freefall into battle. Nothing at laying the groundwork for the killing can prepare a foe — even one standing blows that follow.
Using directional fins. As suits their aggressive style. Some Reivers are equipped with grav-chutes. The element of surprise is key to any Reiver Squad.
Even a single Assault Squad is too dire a bearing silent-firing grapnel launchers. Here are terror troops. On Urkrask they aural assault. They are masters of travelling of all. Reivers control their plummet. Such mobile threats present a drainage tunnels or scaling seemingly unnerved by the sudden and horrific wealth of formidable tactical possibilities impossible heights.
Each member of this Primaris squad is outfitted in Mk X Phobos armour. Droning over the screams of the dying Not all Reiver Squads deploy by air.

With the worked their way behind a Death Guard less trained foes. Even enemy ranks. Gone are their silent sound spreads a pall of dread over the across the battlefield to get into position.
A Hellblaster with such a weapon must remain stationary if before them. With a blazing roar. They stand as a hallowed and eternal reminder to multiple blasts. Deployed at the right place and in this manner. Both it and the standard plasma incinerator are the living that no cost is too high to pay for victory. The Hellblaster Squads harken back to days of glorious legend. Each member of a Hellblaster Squad done only in the direst of circumstances. In addition to targeting armoured. These units provide covering fire for their battleline and close support brethren.
As they have done since they first claimed the Rock as their home world. Enemy battle tanks are reduced to blazing wrecks still. Their names are chiselled into the Pillars of Conflagratus that line The assault variant sacrifices a little range for its ability to fire the Hall of Fire. Devastators are the most heavily armed of all Dark Angels Space and its incandescent bolts of plasma strike with more power Marines.
Not even the thickest armour plating can withstand such starburst of self immolation. Typically this is deadly plasma weaponry. All variants of the plasma incinerator can be supercharged. In the wake of such A Devastator Squad commonly carries four wide volleys of explosive bolts. While an Armorium Cherub can ensure weapons are rapidly reloaded. To aid him in this task he will use a signum to scan the area. Each of these Primaris Marines is clad in heavy Gravis armour and equipped with a pair of gauntlet-mounted weapons.
Many Squads were pivotal in clearing the dense power fists. Quickly identifying and destroying targets is key. This is certain death for tightly satisfaction as their fire sees a particularly advancing between two formations of packed enemies. Devastator Squads are ideal for upon Mordian. Any Devastator battle-brothers not equipped with heavy weaponry carry boltguns. A Devastator Squad is at its deadliest when it can fight from a defensible position that overlooks the battlefield.
Armed with boltstorm that thought to take refuge behind thick gauntlets. An Aggressor Squad can wade into the largest of enemy hordes.

Sammael dwells endlessly upon the ones that got the Dark Angels Legion was reformed into Chapters. It is a task that has grown much harder since the opening performs. The aerial stunts Sammael performed while leading the 2nd Company in the war against the Orks of Charadon are legendary.

The last beacons in the very midst of the foe than Grand Master Sammael. Many times Corvex has been thought lost or destroyed. Sammael much prefers to take matters into his own hands.
Grand Fallen hunts in so short a space of time. Grand Master Sammael cuts down any foolish enough to face him. The present leader of the Ravenwing. The Grand Master of the Ravenwing. Through blood-flecked lips. What makes Grand Master Sammael such a masterful commander of the Ravenwing is that he knows when to temper his penchant for close combat and when to call in aid. Whether the Dark Angels Although the Ravenwing are known across the galaxy as the most maintain a cache of relics or have long-lost STC material is elite mobile strike force in the Imperium.

Specialist Detachments are an upcoming type of Detachment that will be added starting in the Vigilus Defiant campaign supplement by use of stratagems that costs CP. These Detachments are custom made for specific sub-factions which grant them access to a new key word as well as additional Stratagems, Warlord Traits, and Artifacts.
No other army so far has access to them either, so where there is no difference between a human-scaled Boltgun and a regular Astartes Boltgun; Primaris weapons are always improved in some way. Now, relics just replace an equivalent weapon, making them functionally free. However, only 1 Relic may be taken per army unless you spend command points, and the weapon relics still require you to pay for the weapon that the relic will replace.
Note that characters in the Elite slots can only take Relic weaponry if they start with or download the weapon to be upgraded, as they have less options compared to HQs who have access to just about everything. Note Successor chapters including custom successor chapters lack access to special characters as explained on page 74 of the DA codex.

On the other hand, who would even need to bring 4 Lords of War into a game? These vehicles act exactly like other passengers and are subject to the usual restrictions for embarking and disembarking, meaning they can detach while in Supersonic mode at the end of the movement phase.
Transported vehicles can carry units at no additional transport cost to the Thunderhawk, so feel free to deep strike 25 dudes in a Spartan PLUS 15 dudes in the Thunderhawk itself. The cost of this unusual ability is the loss of ranged firepower - the Thunderhawk Transporter is armed with 'only' 4 Twin heavy bolters and a Hellstrike missile battery. It's much cheaper than the Thunderhawk Gunship, but its usefulness is somewhat questionable, cool as it may be.
Placed here separately, because: They're Dark Angels, whether or not they have the key word. Because Deathwing units and characters get bonuses against them. This is actually not as heinously abusive of the fluff as it sounds, bear in mind that Cypher and the occasional Fallen cough - Astelan have been let out of their cells to go on missions with the Dark Angels from time to time, though usually under excessively heavy guard and threat of death and torture if they step out of line.
Cypher even shows up to offer snarky pointers every now and then. While essentially space marines with a twist, the Dark Angels do have some different tactics, mainly because of the ravenwing and the named characters.
Look for this section to be updated with the Codex. Use the above mentioned units and some of the Dark Angel named characters to enhance your army, but don't rely on just the Dark Angel only units. A predator, intercessor squad, normal lieutenant or dreadnought is still a great unit and will serve you well. Jump to:
