Default World Eaters planet.

This might be a little obscure but does anybody know if it's a specific planet represented between the jaws of the World Eaters symbol?

I dont think it is no, its just for symbolisms sake, portraying their Legion's name 'The World Eaters'

Damn I was hoping it was supposed to be Angron's home planet or something.

I would guess that the planet mostly iconized there is a planet trying to resemble Terra.

Other then that, it's just for the "pun"

The day you met me may have been the most life-changing day of your life. For me, it was simply tuesday.

As said, I to believe it was simply just to symbolize some random world. Why it looked like that I do not know, but firstly I had thought it was Terra until I realised there isn't much green left there no-more Sorry I cannot be of any more help though!

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

The Tales of Heresy book sheds some light on it, I think. Angron's former slave army were called City Eaters. I assume they pillaged and destroyed cities during their brief campaign. After Angron accepts his legion, some of the Space Marines declare that while his previous army was City Eaters, the legion would consume entire planets, hence World Eaters.

With that, I would have to say they're probably consuming enemy planets.
