Default Opinions on the Sanguinor?

Evening all

Just writing my shopping list for tommorow to spend my Christmas bonus on plastic crack, (starting a Blood Angels force) and I'm tempted to buy the Sanguinor model.

After re-reading his fluff I'm interested to hear people's takes on him; is he a psychic manifestation? Is he Azkaellon re-incarnated/eternal? None of the above?

Keep your eyes peeled too for my project log that I will be starting over the weekend with any luck!

Maybe the Sanguinor shows up based on the psychic feedback of the Blood Angel forces before battle? If their anxieties/blood lust/whatever tune to a specific frequency in the most dire of situations and bam: Sanguinor, here to save the day.

As to who....who knows?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I think its one of the nicest minis that GW makes, and the mystery and intrigue surrounding him makes it even better!

Appearently the identity of the Sanguinor was revealed back a while ago in an audio drama. http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Sanguinor,_The

Herald of Sanguinius (Audio) by Andy Smillie

Looks like theres some new lore regarding the fate of the cryptus system and the sangunor on the page. Interesting!

Isn't he like the stark opposite of Astorath the grim? Not sure on my BA fluff tbh, although Fear to Tread was pretty awesome and I like the Azkaellon idea but I seem to remember hearing somewhere that Angrath kills him at Terra - don't take that as gospel though as I say I'm not clued up on my BA.

Azkaellon survives the Heresy. He is the only on of the Sanguinary Guard left behind when Sanguinius teleports aboard the Vengeful Spirit. He oversees the breaking up of the Legion into chapters as decreed.

I've listened to the Sanguinor audio, it's all a bit confusing tbh and not entirely clear. Will post later when I've got more time with what happens.

Angel Of Blood, that would be awesome if you could!

My local GW didnt have the Sanguinor in stock!

Bought the battleforce, a Baal predator and a box of Death company today though; watch this space!

Love it. The old battle force with the Tactical, Assault, and Death Company squads and a Rhino?

It's a little odd and as I said unclear. But here's an attempt.
