Avenging Angels (More commonly known as mini-Living Saints, Discount Living Saints, Baby Saints, Golden Flying Titties, Sororitas Necromancy, Literal Wat?, fucking bullshit) are the Sisters of Battle version of the Necron re-animation protocols...yeah it only appeared in Dawn of War Soulstorm so the canonicity of this unit is a bit...iffy...
Avenging Angels are essentially the spirits of fallen Sisters of Battle, summoned to fight by their Sisters' side once again by the use of the Canoness's Act of Faith ability called the
re-animation protocols Ascension.
In battle they seek vengeance against the faithful's enemies for a short time, before disappearing back to the ether.
They look like golden mini versions of the Living Saint (Hence one of their nicknames). While one Living Saint is already considered an eye sore in Dawn of War, the arrival of even more Living Saints (Albeit baby versions) is enough to prompt your enemy to start bombarding that area with artillery strikes.
Being only seen in a video game, they have no models as of yet. Although their rules would be similar to the Seraphim Squad but with more elite choices and more exclusive to CQC. If you want a model I guess you can swap the jetwings of the Seraphims with actual wings (Mainly from the Sanguinary Guard) and then painting the entire model in shining, glittering gold.
Then 8th Edition
The "new" codex describes a minor order called the Order of the Golden Light, who all died, twice. There are also no records of them recruiting more sisters. So they appear to be Legion of the Damned but properly Gilded.
