The Fire Angels are a Space Marine chapter created from Ultramarines gene-seed. They fought on the loyalist side during the Badab War.

History[edit]

The Fire Angels are a recently founded chapter from the 25th Founding. Though only a few centuries old, they have already won much honour for their victories in various campaigns and crusades.

Since they are so young, there hasn't been enough time for them to deviate from the Codex Astartes, and thus they have not developed any particular traits that let them stand out, though in the RPG they are above average close combatants and marksmen which makes them pretty handy. Probably partly due to the fact that they focus their training on "typical Astartes" methods of war.

However, also because they are so young, they lack more specialised war machines and relics and have to make do with standard Rhino variants.

They do not revere their ancestral primarch Roboute Guilliman as most chapters do, believing this to be a form of idolatry. Instead however they worship the Emperor as a God, making them relative oddballs amongst Astartes Chapters who rather see Him as an inspired and extremely advanced Man as well as their forefather. In fact the Fire Angels go so far as to have adopted the Imperial Creed, sharing many of its teachings and beliefs.

As a result, the Chapter has close ties with various bodies within the Ecclesiarchy and typically fights alongside the Adepta Sororitas. Battle-Brothers of the Fire Angels have received numerous citations and honours from the lords of the Ministorum, something that very few other Chapters would care to accept or even acknowledge.

Combat Tactics[edit]

The Fire Angels are a highly zealous chapter, though their combat tactics mirror those of the Ultramarines almost exactly due to their adherence to the Codex Astartes, thus on the tabletop they used the Chapter Tactics (Ultramarines).

They tend to rely on "basic" Imperial technology and codex equipment, such as rhinos and Predators, while their 1st Company is mostly composed of Sternguard Veterans rather than of Terminators

Special Characters[edit]

The only special character for the Chapter is Tarnus Vale, captain of the 3rd company who took part in the Badab War. Although he got virus bombed, he survived and returned to the battle with mechanical lungs. On the tabletop he's a captain-sized Antaro Chronus with the ability to take over a transport vehicle like a Land Raider or Razorback, which he grants his ballistic skill and Tank-Hunters USR to. In addition all of your Razorbacks, Rhinos and Land Raiders in the army get 5+ Invulnerable saves against Glancing Hits, so he's nice but not broken.
