Blood Angels upgrade

The Blood Angels are one of the most popular Space Marine Chapters. They fought at the Emperor's side during the earliest days of the Imperium as one of the original Legions. Ten thousand years later, and one of the longest-running Chapters, they are still shaped by the deeds of their Primarch Sanguinius. Few Space Marine Chapters are as prolific and loyal in their defence of the Imperium as the Blood Angels, though a flaw in their gene seed makes them susceptible to the Black Rage and the Red Thirst - all-consuming curses that turn them savage and blood-thirsty in battle...

In February 2011, the Blood Angels will receive more reinforcements, including never-before-seen models - visit the website for more information from the Studio in their Incoming! article. If you want to start massing your own Angelic Host, or are looking to bolster your troops, then here are some essential items to prepare for the new arrivals in February.

Codex: Blood Angels

Codex: Blood Angels contains all the rules you need to field a Blood Angels army, and provides excellent information on the Chapter's iconic and in-depth background, artwork, as well as featuring an 'Eavy Metal showcase.

Death Company

Members of the Death Company are unparalleled short-ranged combatants, and are impervious to wounds that may kill another Space Marine. This box set includes backpacks and jump packs featuring Blood Angels iconography, giving you plenty of extras to use on your other Blood Angels miniatures.

Sanguinary Guard

The Sanguinary Guard are Fearless Veteran Blood Angels, elites who uphold the values of their Primarch like no other. Armed with the Descent of Angels special rule, they can drop right into the heart of the enemy force. Complete with winged jump packs, death masks and a variety of power weapons, they make a stunning centerpiece for any Blood Angels force.

Baal Predator

The Baal Predator is a specialized variant of the Predator battle tank, with a potent combination of close-support weaponry, including the options of turret-mounted twin-linked assault cannon and turret-mounted flamestorm cannon. Being a Fast Vehicle and able to Scout makes this tank a formidable opponent. Two of them are a serious threat. Three will create a nightmare.

The Blood Angels Omnibus

Immerse yourself in this gripping Blood Angels series, written by New York Times bestselling author James Swallow. This omnibus of the novels Deus Encarmine and Deus Sanguinius tells epic stories of heroism, corruption and betrayal at the very heart of the Chapter, and provides excellent inspiration for developing your army.
