Blood Angel codex presentation by warhammer TV
Hello everyone !
Transcript of the warhammer tv talk about Blood angels codex.
General Fluff :
Still Angel/Blood thirsty maniac fighting Daemons !
Tycho is present in DC/normal.
Dante still CM (off course)
In the post great rift story, Hive fleet levy is on the door.
Red thirst / Black rage fluff is still the same
Keen on blood ritual to transfert blood of the Primarch.
NEW fluff about what happen after the hive fleet / Khorne thing.
They slipped that Sanguinus is in statis/bad shape state.
Same old, 10 comps with 100 but they are less than 1000 these days.
During the description it seem that Primaris are integrated in Normal codex organisation.
Some codex update since big G came back: Comp can get boosted by reserve company.
Cast of character :
Successor chapters get a special Relic but can't use BA one. (So they get only one ?)
FT boss is included too.
Corbulo, Meph, Dante, Astoraph the grim, Sanguinor.
Chapter ancient have been added to the codex.
DC : New strategium to add DC trait to Character model.
Strategium : Extra move at the start of the (game/turn ?)
Strategium Red rampage : +1d3 attacks to a characters charging.
Strategium Increase Charge distance (no details given)
Black rage : +1 attack when charge, 6+ FNP
Meph can still fly ! but can't take a Jump Pack ^^
Primaris have red Thirst (so they should be subject to black rage too, more info to come).
Can use index stats.
Every models you can put together, get rules in the codex.
Wings of sanguinius : extra move in the psychic phase
Edit : More details on the sanguinus part :
-Someone on twitch asked if : Sanguinus could have a Jet pack (he meant meph off course)
Then the design studio guy started with "i don't understand the pun" then "he can't because is dead" and finally after a bit of bla bla :"
being in stasis (bite his lips and hesitate) he's in bad shape"
exact phrase is : "stasis thing....is in a mess in a bad way" 47 min of the stream
Chapter Focus: The Blood Angels
Hello everyone !!
yay It's Blood angels turn to get the road to codex treatment ^^
I'll be honest, BA is my first and only 40k army !! I'll maybe played red marines during the Grav bike spam era ^^ Or red smurf multi doctrine. But since Angel of death codex (DA/BA joint codex) they are my mens (i have a soft spot for DA too because they were in the same book.)
So what did we learn in the Chapter Focus,
-Red thirst rules
-A few trait, stratagem and relics (some very cool !)
But who care !!! What happen to the DEATH COMPANY ? :D
Blood Angels !
Hello again !!
Codex: Blood Angels brings the scions of Baal into the new era of Warhammer 40,000 in full. This is one of the most exciting codexes in the post-Gathering Storm galaxy, featuring a wealth of new lore and a huge volume of new units, too. Inside, you’ll find how the Blood Angels are recovering – and even thriving – after their world was almost annihilated by Hive Fleet Leviathan, and how the latest wave of Primaris reinforcements are being accepted by the rest of the Chapter.
As for new rules, there’s all the awesome stuff you know and love from the rest of this edition’s codexes – Stratagems, Warlord Traits, Psychic Powers and more – as well as some special extras. You’ll now be able to clad the Archangels – the legendary, Terminator-armoured first company of the Blood Angels – in Cataphractii and Tartaros armour, diversifying the range of tactical options available to you. If you prefer aerial warfare, this codex sees the Blood Angels gain access to the popular Stormhawk Interceptor and well as the Stormtalon Gunship.
The new codex will also see the Blood Angels able to add a range of Primaris units to their army. To help, there’s a series of kits on the way, each featuring a unique Blood Angels upgrade frame containing weapons, shoulder pads and heads designed to make your squads fit with the rest of your Blood Angels collection. This frame will be available separately, too!

It was the cover of the 2 books !
hello again !
The artwork was in fact the cover of the 2 books !
Super cool !!!
Half of that image, as you know, is the cover of Traitor’s Hate. We can now let you know that the other half is the cover of it’s opposite, Angel’s Blade, which tells the tale of the same brutal opening battles of the 13th Black Crusade, but from the Imperial perspective.
Like Traitor’s Hate, there are lots of new rules in there, but this time for the sons of Sanguinius, including Formations, Detachments, Vehicle Squadrons, updated Datasheets and some particularly cool rules for Death Company fans…
