Evening all

Just writing my shopping list for tommorow to spend my Christmas bonus on plastic crack, (starting a Blood Angels force) and I'm tempted to buy the Sanguinor model.

After re-reading his fluff I'm interested to hear people's takes on him; is he a psychic manifestation? Is he Azkaellon re-incarnated/eternal? None of the above?

Keep your eyes peeled too for my project log that I will be starting over the weekend with any luck! :good:

Maybe the Sanguinor shows up based on the psychic feedback of the Blood Angel forces before battle? If their anxieties/blood lust/whatever tune to a specific frequency in the most dire of situations and bam: Sanguinor, here to save the day.

As to who....who knows?

I think its one of the nicest minis that GW makes, and the mystery and intrigue surrounding him makes it even better!

Isn't he like the stark opposite of Astorath the grim? Not sure on my BA fluff tbh, although Fear to Tread was pretty awesome and I like the Azkaellon idea but I seem to remember hearing somewhere that Angrath kills him at Terra - don't take that as gospel though as I say I'm not clued up on my BA.

Azkaellon survives the Heresy. He is the only on of the Sanguinary Guard left behind when Sanguinius teleports aboard the Vengeful Spirit. He oversees the breaking up of the Legion into chapters as decreed.


Appearently the identity of the Sanguinor was revealed back a while ago in an audio drama. http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Sanguinor,_The

Herald of Sanguinius (Audio) by Andy Smillie

Looks like theres some new lore regarding the fate of the cryptus system and the sangunor on the page. Interesting!
I've listened to the Sanguinor audio, it's all a bit confusing tbh and not entirely clear. Will post later when I've got more time with what happens.

Angel Of Blood, that would be awesome if you could!

My local GW didnt have the Sanguinor in stock!

Bought the battleforce, a Baal predator and a box of Death company today though; watch this space! :good:

It's a little odd and as I said unclear. But here's an attempt.

Nah ntaw, it's the new BA tac. Squad, a dreadnought and a BA captain now
Dang, that old one was a hell of a way to start an army. I do like all the new things we get now though, one day I'll end up getting the box for a third Furioso and Sternguard. Plus who doesn't need more gribbles for Character models as well, right? I look forward to seeing your progress. I gotta dig out some red paint myself...

On topic, if what Angel of Blood is saying is true as to how the Sanguinor came along I don't get why is it such a mystery to current Blood Angels. Maybe some type of Draigo-esque stuck in the warp but able to make it out for battle sometimes thing but he's been stuck so long they've forgotten about him/previously just thought that marine was dead.

Whatever happened to Meros after Fear to Tread?

Nice! Well show us pics when you do! I'm gonna be starting a project log soon!
