It's old lore; I wasn't gonna break up old famous events, yo. I just made them, y'know, less... losing-ish. They get a slightly better showing in the article than in previous "They just got slaughtered" lore, and when (if?) I ever get around to the Seventh Black Crusade in the novel series, they'll get a truly vicious appearance there, too.

Though I'm sure there'll be countless Blood Angel fans insisting I hate them.

Uh now they do. They impressed Abaddon the Despoiler, the Warmaster of Chaos. He actually gave a gesture of respect to Imperial Space Marines, and at the same time humiliated his own warriors by using them in that way. In a nutshell the Blood Angels lost, but they put up a good enough fight that Abaddon was impressed by it. That is something noteworthy for their lore.

Epic, perhaps you'll be the first to really capture the might of the Black Rage. Because in my opinion nobody has really managed to do that yet.

Oh yeah because Blood Angels have never done anything impressive/famous in the past ;-)

I mean, I had a lot (no, really, a lot) of feedback on the Black Legion Codex, too. But I totally wrote the Index Astartes: Death Comapny article, hence the specific note, there.

I did the Munitorum: Chainswords article, too.

Hoping to do a few more in the future, but it all comes down to time.
Credit where credit is due then, I guess. Well done!

With his Chapter devastated, the Chaplain endures weeks of hardship in the wilderness and the constant trials of keeping his crazed warriors undetected on Mackan. When the time is right, Jorus leads his Death Company in a lightning raid behind enemy lines, butchering the unprepared sworn warriors of the Despoiler’s honour guard, and allowing the Reclusiarch to lock blades with Abaddon himself. It is said the Warmaster still bears the scars of that battle, even three millennia later.

Whatever the truth of the matter, it is known that the Despoiler honoured Jorus once the war was over – perhaps in mockery, or perhaps with nothing but sincerity. After Mackan, thousands of Blood Angels corpses were desecrated, their gene-seed ruined beyond recovery. Of all the Chapter, only a handful of bodies were left undefiled: Reclusiarch Jorus and his Death Company, clad in their battered and broken black ceramite, seated in makeshift thrones made from the armour of those Black Legion warriors they had killed on that fateful night.
Now that is fucking awesome!

Nothing that I can think of, no.

Yeah they have, plenty of it in fact.

The Signus Massacre, the Hives of Hollonan, the Battle of Khartas, the Destruction of the Terrorclaw, the Chapter Civil War, and let's not forget holding both the walls of the Imperial Palace with the Imperial Fists and holding the Eternity Gate with Sanguinius. And the moment at Terra when they went mad and forced the traitors back for a while.

Indeed. Fans loved your Ultramarines in Betrayer and Void Stalker, no doubt they'll love your Blood Angels if/when you get to write them.

One thing confuses me. It says thousands of Blood Angels were desecrated. Did they in the 37th millenium blatantly ignore the Codex and decide to expand their numbers past the standard 1000?

I would guess that's it a typo.

Where may I read the original lore regarding this Blood Angels vs. Black Legion conflict?

How can there be thousands of Blood Angel corpses if a chapter is around 1,000 space marines? I'm guessing he means "hundreds"?
