Forgeworld used to do a Blood Ravens transfer sheet so it actually exists, I emailed and asked if they would re-release it after they made the chapter master mini and they said unlikely.

I think Chapter Customizer has a set - but I might be thinking of another chapter. They have a lot of the offshoot chapters.

We still can? I'm sure the Custodes just stop by to ask if the Blood Ravens have seen that contingent of unmarked Primaris the Custodes recently misplaced.

The human Resource manager at my work is from England. We trade jabs every now and then, so when I saw him on Monday I asked him if he will be home crying in his tea while we are all celebrating . He told me he gets a lot of people wondering if they celebrate July 4th in England .

I'm hoping the Custodes ship is named some varient of Truck, so we can joke about how the Ravens really diod "Get their primaris marines when they fell off the back of a truck"

Even though I don't run them, I am interested to see their rules. They only mention stratagem (singular) and relic (singular). That kinda seems a bit low. I was hoping that there would be a few Warlord Traits, StratagemS, and RelicS. Either way, I can't wait to see what Meme Marines get. For the Emprah!

I so badly want them to get just 1 relic and then be able to also take any relic from any "Marine" codex, including chaos and Custards as well.

keep in mind that if you crack open codex space marines, ultramariens only have one stratigium and relic, imperial fists one stratigium and relic etc.

the only faction that happens to have multiple is crimson fists by virtue of having their own index astrates article AND a relic in the core codex. So 1 strat and 1 relic is expected. more would have been nice but I was only expecting one. I just hope it's a GOOD relic. I've a few ideas for what would be IDEAL relics.


1: A power Sword of sometype. If a space Marine chapter must have a relic WEAPON a power sword seems the best idea, as you can equip both primaris and normal with it. IIRC the penultimate reward at the end of the dawn of war 2 campaign was a power sword, attempting to convert the blade of the unrelenting could be a fun thing. make it a normal power sword, +1 D to heretic astartes. and gives the weilder a 5+++ save.

2: Maybe go with something a bit odd for a suit of armor, "The Blighted Power armor" reduces armor save to 4+ but doubles aura range.

just some random ideas.

Well it's possiable the chapter tactic will synergize with Angelos in new and awesome ways.

Yeah, that is true. I like SeanDrake's idea of letting them take relics from any Astartes army. That would be hilariously appropriate.

I like your idea of a Power Sword. It would be fitting for representing the final weapon from the campaign mode. Plus, most characters could take it (Captains [regular and Terminator], Lieutenants, Primaris Captains[regular and Gravis], Primaris Lieutenants, Chapter Champions, Company Champions, and probably even more than that).

It was definitely by far the better of the two and you're indeed lucky to have one. I've got some of their other figs and the quality is very nice. I've got some ideas on a conversion for a distant point in the future based on combining it with another forgeworld model but that's alot of $$$ for a fig that I have no play value for and I'm just an average painter at best so it's not going to be a notable display model either.

you'll wanna go fleshtearer red over the stormseer grey most likely. sadly I can't use contrast paints as I've already good blood ravens and they're a rich "red wine" colour. and I don't think I can do it with contrast.

if you had Raven Guard and Blood Angels, starting Blood Ravens would complete the set. You could put them all together for a Blood Blood Ravens Ravens army

Nah, only use the shared names.
Basically what I was going for is Blood Angels + Raven guard = Blood Ravens. Even their color scheme looks like you mixed the other 2 together

Regarding their Relic (singular) It's be cool if they also gained access to all other Astartes Relics regardless of Chapter

I too am eagerly awaiting the Blood Ravens article.
Will they give them a specific chapter tactic and such as well as a new data sheet for Gabriel Angelos?
A stratagem or two maybe like "So, I found this Relic..."
