The aforementioned Baal Predator is a unique tank manufactured by the Blood Angels. It is an anti-infantry assault tank equipped with twin-linked assault cannons and heavy flamers that was acquired in a pre-heresy campaign that nearly broke all their relationships with the Mechanicus. Even to this day, things are still a bit touchy. Luckily, the Techmarines of the chapter quickly reverse engineered the overcharged "Lucifer-class" engines onto nearly all their vehicles. The Blood Angels' de facto relic weapons are called Glaive Encarmines—'glaive' apparently meaning 'sword' in this case rather than the halberd-type weapon it's associated with "glaives" comes from the Latin "gladius", the common short sword of the legionnaire so there you go.
They're made out of a mono-filament metal called 'angel-steel' and are purportedly so perfectly crafted that they never bend or warp. The secrets to their manufacture are jealously guarded by their Artificers. This is represented by their master-crafted universal special rule. They come in two flavors, a Carmine Sword or a Carmine Axe. The Blood Angels' themes and motifs are drawn from vampire and Faustian mythology as well as some Catholic traditions. They commonly fly with jump packs , are eternally youthful , drink blood, and sleep in coffins.
The Blood Angels are noted for naturally living longer on average than the Marines of any other chapter. Although, since there is no baseline standard for how long Astartes are supposed to live in the first place, and no Space Marine has ever been shown or described to have ever died of anything resembling old age, this claim kinda rings a little hollow. Even Dante 's age of over years isn't unique to his lineage, as there have been several other notable Astartes from other legion bloodlines that have managed a similar lifespan.
By and large, Space Marines only die when they are killed, so, the only real ways Blood Angels can live considerably longer than "normal" space marines is if they either don't put themselves at risk as much as normal marines , or they're so ded 'ard that they're just harder to kill than normal marines. Horus Heresy: Malevolence explains the longevity in a somewhat ironic fashion, given what we already know of Astartes physiology. The Ninth Legion were renowned for their long lifespans even during the early Great Crusade.
What was less known was that the Legion had a habit of eating their dead captains after they fell in battle, with the Omophagea implant allowing the memories and battle experience to be retained for a future generation. Some recipients of these memories would take up the identity of the dead officer and give the outward appearance that they had never died at all. It was said that the Legion's master prior to Sanguinius recovery had gone through several such reincarnations before his final death when the body was destroyed beyond recognition.
Sufficed to say that after Sanguinius arrival, things changed and thereafter took being called the "Eaters of the Dead" as cause for grievous offense. When a Blood Angel does die, a Sanguinary Priest what they call their Apothecaries extracts his gene-seed using a device called an exsanguinator. When it comes time to implant it in an Initiate, the Initiate must receive it by drinking from a Blood Chalice 'insanguination' , which also contains the essence of Sanguinius. The story of Mephiston , the Blood Angels' chief librarian, closely parallels the legend of Faust, a scholar who sells his soul to the devil in return for great knowledge and power hell, he's named after the manifestation of the devil in the story, Mephistopheles or Mephisto.
The names of their special characters and vehicles have an Italian flavor—Dante, the Furioso Dreadnought, Brother Corbulo. Corbulo, known as the chapter's High Sanguinary Priest, carries the Red Grail, which contains the blood of Sanguinius himself. Also, do we have to point out that the word 'sanguis' literally means 'blood' in Latin?
Well, there you go. The Blood Angels and their successor chapters have a genetic defect in their gene-seed known euphemistically as "The Flaw". It seems to have much more representation in the fluff than in the crunch , but that's standard fare for a life-threatening, damnation-courting mutation that can pop up at any time. One chapter, Angels Penitent, managed to stave the defects off until they were fucked over by Chaos.
Sanguinius went to great lengths to hide it from the Emperor for fear of being expunged from the Imperium , although odds are that the Emperor already knew. He even introduced Chaplains to the Blood Angels legions before the Edict of Nikaea, not just to monitor psykers, but to look out for brothers who might be giving in to their bloodlust. In the lore the general effect is that the Red Thirst makes a Blood Angel an Angry Marine with a literal thirst for actual goddamn blood. Thus most Blood Angel Chaplains require certification for anger management therapy before they get the job.
Their duty is to ensure that the assorted Marines are not showing signs of bloodlust, and to throw them into a battle if they are so they can stave off total madness a bit longer. However, all battle-brothers who suffer the effects of the Flaw long enough will eventually become overrun with their rather literal thirst for vengeance, succumbing to the Black Rage. After this, their lives will consist of utterly suicidal front-line charges to rip and tear the enemy as much as possible, before they eventually receive an honorable death in combat against the Emperor's foes.
Those unlucky enough to survive to the end of the battle will either be given the Emperor's Peace by Astorath , or imprisoned within the Tower of the Lost as a hopeless, dribbling maniac until they are required on the field of battle once more. This happened in Devastation of Baal, where the victims of the curse were seen as having mutated into hulking beasts who moved on all fours like gorillas. They were released to hold off the hordes of Daemons and Tyranids. In 6th edition, Red Thirst had the odd consequence of occasionally making a unit Fearless and Furious Chargers if they give into the temptation, though independent characters had enough control over themselves that they were mostly immune, with a few exceptions.
Going further back, into 3rd edition, the Red Thirst made a bit more sense and was something to actually be wary of, as your units had a potential to lose control at the thought of blood and move out of position towards the enemy. This really wasn't fun , especially if your Devastator Squads didn't pull that critical round of shooting.
New in 8th it comes back with a vengeance. On the other hand, the Black Rage is the Red Thirst's angrier, more troublesome brother. You know, the one who dresses in black all the time, and who shows up at random times to complicate your life and embarrass your family.
SCHOOL TAGLINE HERE
It's a terminal state in which the battle brother has not only succumbed to the Red Thirst, but has had a total psychotic breakdown. Or if you're feeling particularly poetic: it's the psychic scream of a dying demi-god that got stuck in his progeny. Battle-brothers who succumb to the Black Rage are overcome with visions of Blood Angel battles during the Horus Heresy , and a few even imagine themselves to be Sanguinius battling Horus on his battle barge. This of course has the unfortunate side effect of making them completely lose touch with reality, fighting a battle that they can never ever win since the outcome of the hallucinations has already occurred.
On the plus side though, their disconnection with what is going on around them turns them into immensely powerful warriors, since each and every one of them believe in some way that they are Sanguinius. Long story short, a Marine afflicted with the Black Rage will become even angrier than an Angry Marine , and with even less self-control which means they are effectively each Nightbringer crossed with Commissar Fuklaw. If you happen to be in the same star system of one of these, pray to the god emperor they don't sense you. If you don't happen to worship the God-Emperor, silently hope your gods are OK with suicide, because the alternative is too nightmarishly gruesome for even Games Workshop to describe in sufficient detail.
If this happens in a war zone, they are quietly organized into small squads and their armor is painted black by a chaplain before the worst of the hallucinations take over. If they aren't killed in battle or get off the leash somehow, Astorath will come and execute them on the battlefield since no other Blood Angel has the stomach or outright skill to kill his own battle brothers.
Every force of Blood Angels and their successor chapters has one, though some are more susceptible than others , which makes those chapters' responses to the occurrence of Black Rage quite varied. The Flesh Tearers and the renegade Knights of Blood chapters both have an uncanny predilection for all-out, balls-to-the-wall assault—hoping to die in battle honorably before the rage takes them. In the Knights of Blood's case, they fought with the zeal of the Black Templars , the fury of the World Eaters , and the excess of the Marines Malevolent in such a perfect way that they got kicked out of the cool kids club and branded renegades for their excess collateral damage against allied forces.
The Flesh Tearers very nearly joined that shit list, and were only forgiven by the Blood Angels when Astorath personally intervened on their behalf, citing that their brutality would be a necessity in the near future.
