GW hasn't shown any real signs of bringing back the Primarchs in over 20 years, I can't see it changing any time soon.

where did you get angron as the red angel? the red angel is a blood angel space marine being possessed at the hands of horus and several other primarchs, dark mechanicus members and some daemons on the vengeful spirit. it is in collected visions. if you have it, check it out.

I honestly do think they do not have the guts (wisdom) to do it, that being said I do not think the current setting needs extra primarchs to make it more interesting. For example the mess the BA are in described in the last codex promises a tantalizing read.
I was wondering if other successor chapters of the BA are helped by the sanguinator or just the BA, that micht shed some light on the case, I assule a primarch would help all his children no?
i agree with you on that, it would open a pandoras box and to be honest i like the idea that the space marines have to contnue thier paths without thier fathers by thier side and therefore have to face life without the reassurance of the omnipotent and all powerful father figure hence why GW haven't done it although thats not to say at somepoint in the far distant future they won't.
still there are enough legends in the marine chapters to keep the spirits of thier fathers alive at any rate.
i am not sure about the sanguinator helps out the BA's succesor chapters but i would like to think he would as when all is said and done they are Blood Angels all be it by another name they share the same bloodline, not as ancient or powerful as the foundng leigon but still sons of Sanguinus never the less.

Angron is several times referred to as The Red Angel.

The Red Angel you are referring to in Collected Visions will feature in Fear to Tread.

We don't know yet. But it's James Swallow's next Heresy novel.
