Garrison's Fallen Dark Angel Warband
This is my Dark Angels portion of the Dark Vengeance set. Since I wanted slowing enter Warhammer 40K, I painted them up as Fallen so I could use them to bolster my Black Legion Chaos Space Marine collection. With recent (at the time of this writing) addition of the Fallen Dark Angel formation this worked out even better. Although, for simplicity sake, pretty much all these units are 'count as' their Chaos Space Marine equivalent when I use them. The only real issue is the Plasma Cannon which doesn't have anything close to a CSM equivalent. They also make a hand second Kill Team warband.
Warband Master Garrison
He is called Garrison as he once destroyed an entire garrison of Imperial Guard in single combat. Upon learning some of the secrets of the Dark Angels this once Captain went renegade with some of his more loyal troops fleeing to the place that many traitors had before, the Eye of Terror. During his flight to the Eye, Garrison’s group encountered the Fallen librarian Benediction Nold. All trace of his past deeds and even his name have been erased with the aid of Benediction Nold. The librarian seemed to know just how to avoid the worst effects of the warp preventing Garrison and his men from fully succumbing to its mutating and insanity causing effect.
Librarian Benediction Nold
A pompous and arrogant psyker who has time and again proven himself a courageous and excellent battlefield leader. However, it is impossible what secrets behind his cybernetic eye. While Nold is excellent in rally the warband’s troops, he is not trusted by Chaos Lord Galvanius or the sorcerer Ashneed whom they often find themselves allied with. As of yet, neither have any reason to suspect Nold beyond suspicion. It is this distrust that prevents the Chaos leaders to given the librarian any real control over the warband which only serves to grow Benediction’s contempt. Perhaps Nold was a completely loyal follower at one point and this constant snubbing of his ability will ultimately lead him to betraying the warband ironically. Only time will tell.
Fallen Ravenwing Bikers
The biker marines of this small warband of the Fallen are the most corrupted by the warp. The bodies have yet to show the tell-tale signs of mutation, but their minds have not. They relish combat more than they ever had as loyalists. To the point they have a competition with Galvanius’ Warp Talons for both number of kills and spectacular kills. The squad is led by Sergaent Praxius Marhog. The plasma gun operator goes by the name ‘Fireburn’ and the last biker is known as Xephron Thunder-Eagle.
Fallen Deathwing Terminators
This squad was not originally part of Garrison’s group and instead followed Benediction Nold originally. The just as aloof as their leader and rarely interact with anyone outside their squad. They are led by Screaming Night Raven. On the Assault Cannon is Buffalo Over Cliff. With the chainfist is Bear With Teeth of Wolf. The final squad members are Walks Like Mountain and Crazy Vulture.
Fallen Dark Angels Tactical Squad
This squad is fanatically loyal to both Garrison and Benediction Nold. Like Galvanius’ Chaos Warband, the make use of Hellfire-neon plasma for their weapons. The squad is led by Sergeant Leonardo Basilli. On the plasma cannon is Hugues the Orange. The plasma gun operator is Ligier Wilmot. The remaining squad is: Reginaldus Ives, Amfried Rofle, Thancred Benardo, Beri Maucolyn, Renouart Dane, Rainard Lief and Ranulphus.
