The Inner Circle in collaboration with the Liber Astartes presents:
THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE ANGELS 2017
Generals of the Astra Militarum!
The High Lords of Terra have deemed it necessary to get an accounting of the various regiments serving the Emperor. Representatives from each regiment are requested to provide a brief data summary of their regiment’s history and past glories to be added to the vast data banks of the Administratum.
So, arm yourselves with your quills and your cogitators!
Activate your savants and servitors!
Gather your banners of honor and let loose the Brotherhood of Angels!
The Brotherhood of Angels (BotA) started as a Dark Angels Forum Event aimed at participants creating unique DIY chapter histories. In other words, you enter the event by submitting a written description of a chapter that you have created. This has grown in popularity to encompass a major section of the Bolter & Chainsword Community and to be included in the Liberalia Martiale!
