Red Thirst, not Black Rage. The Black Rage isn't really something to fight back and the Feather helps with the Red Thirst since Sanguinius was known to calm the Thirst in Blood Angels around him.
Wait so the Knights of Blood were giving into the Red Thirst in DoB? Ohhh I thought they were falling to the Black Rage. My bad.
Edit: Updated the main post with info obtained from winter's SEO review. LOTS of great news for Flesh Tearers! Potentially two characters that cannot be over watched. Added Fury Within to the main post as well for reference. If anyone has the stats on the chainsword that would be awesome! I'm pretty sure it will be like the other chainswords though 2 attacks, dmg 2 etc..
The Knights of Blood Red Thirst transformation is one of the most controversial idea Guy Haley put in DoB, i did have prefer to stay with the Flesh Tearers aspect, with the KOB being unable to control themselves rather than physically transforming.
Now, regarding the Flesh Tearers in the new supplement, Blood of Baal :
First, it is always great to have the Flesh Tearers being given special rules and stuff, BUT, for myself, i feel a big disapointement regarding the quantity given, it feel like GW did the minimum job required to say that they worked on it. (In french we call it the "Minimum Syndical", which is the 10.00 on 20, you do the job but nothing more.)
I personally, given GW recent and good Space Marines Supplement, was expecting, 6 Warlord Traits and 6 Relics, and perhaps 2 to 4 more Stratagems, plus a special Flesh Tearers Litany for Chaplains, and even perhaps some psychic powers.
Instead we got the Crimson Fist treatment, who in the Imperial Fist supplement got nearly the same amount of work.
In the end, i can confort myself at the fact that what the Flesh Tearers got is still pretty powerfull and thematic.
