From Natfka:
via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
-Clam Pack Captain in a 2nd Edition Golden Armor Design, armed with Combi-Melter
-Box with all options for the Predator (Baal, Detructor and Annihilator, new Melta weapon in Turret option)
-Honour Guard and Blood Brothers Multi Box

Blood Brothers have survived as members of the Death Company and turned back to normal Astartes, they are like Vanguard Veterans but more "BA-like" and with different weapon options.
So I see potential rage occuring if the Death Company thing is true.

And confusion about how the Flesh Tearers are organized on my part if it's true.

carrying blood meltas and blood swords and riding blood raiders and shooting blood bolters and dying blood deaths and bleeding blood blood.
I don't know, I think it needs more Blood. Like Blood Helmets and Blood Armor and Blood Packs and Blood Bolts and Blood Axes and Blood Boots and they come packaged with Blood Bases.

I heard of a new cut predator coming last year but there was no mention of baal at the time - but it would make sense for a completely inclusive box

EDIT: Lemartez and Mephiston both fell to the Black Rage: Lemartez lives in stasis between battles, and Mephiston completely beat it and transformed into the beast that he is. It would be pretty friggin' crazy to have squads of Lemartez's.

*still doing lines of salt...anyone want in??

If GW thinks it will sell more miniatures they'll change the fluff without a second thought. Not the first time they have done it and it won't be the last. Sounds like a shit idea to me personally but then again I haven't liked the fluff behind most of their new units to be quite honest.

Wait what in the hell Mephiston is awesome because he's the only one to resist the black rage... Ummn...

They're Blood Angels, not demons. Wait...

Yeah I don't doubt that they would, but it's damned inconsiderate of them

-_- Mephiston is special because he's the only one who has ever beaten the Black Rage. The whole point of the Death Company is for the Space Marines to die reliving the passion of Sanguinius, and if they somehow manage to survive the battle, it's the job of the Chaplains (and in the last Codex, specifically Astorath) to put them down. I'd like to see them not retcon all that and make it so the Black Rage is something beatable and there are squads of veterans who've done it-- it really takes away a strong element of the Blood Angels' character.

Agreed. The thing about Mephiston beating it is that there is a shadow over him because if it. Did he do it all himself, or did he have "outside" help. Is he possessed by a demon just waiting on the right moment to act?

If they change it so that there are whole squads like him running around, are they going to have a special rule that allows the to turn into blood letters?
