Basicly, I have found their color scheme, the fact that they were in two battles and that the Aussie's like them.

Wait....No, as far as I know they were only active during the Badab War and the Battle of Sagan's Moon. You could make up your own fluff for them, as there's no set GW fluff.

The Fire Angels are a Space Marine chapter created from Ultramarines gene-seed. They fought on the loyalist side during the Badab War. In one incident during the war, the rebel Astral Claws launched a suicidal counter-attack, in which a squadron of Rhinos broke through an Imperial salient to the Fire Angels' lines and detonated a virus missile, causing more deaths in one day than the Fire Angels had suffered in the war so far.

Okay, let me crack open my copy of IA:9

-Ultramarine Sucessor
-25th Founding
-Homeworld: Lorin Alpha
-Fortress Monastary: The Tower Atenaeum (Self-contained Islan fortress monastary)
-One of the few chapters that worship the Emperor as a god
-View themselves as part of the greater web of Imperial power. Are known to be easier to work with than other Astartes.
-Recruit from the Hives of Lorin Alpha in the Trial by Fire.
- They are a Codex Chapter
-Oddly for Astartes they just consider Guilliman to be merely an exceptional warrior. They consider only the God-Emperor and his saints to be beings worthy of veneration.
-They are a young chapter lacking much older relic wargear like Termie armor. They make heavy use of Rhinos and Predators, most ot he 1st Company is fielded as Sternguard squads.
-Prefer armored assaults.
-They favor the sword not only as a close combat weapon but as a measure of their spititual devotion to the Emperor.

All that's from Imperial Armor Nine.
