"None can stand our wrath for we are the right hand of doom"
One the Most hated enemy is Dagon the Destroyer a vile Chaos lord and his retinue of Fallen Angels. They have been hunting him and his retinue for centuries from end of Imperium to the other. It was in the year of 324M36 when Dagon first appeared at western edge of the Gothic Sector attacking worlds as he went. The Angels and other chapter responded to the incursion. It was on the planet of Darious Prime where the Angels learned that Dagon was the head of this incursion and his Fallen retinue where the forefront of every battle. It didn’t come to a head until the Angels found him on St. Daniel. As they enter the system they where attacked with fury unheard of. They plugged head long into the system. As they reach St. Daniel. The Angels began their assault on St. Daniel with all the fury of the Emperor’s might... Dagon lured them in thinking at they had him by the throat and defeat was imminent. The Angels made planet fall with three companies of marines and began their attack on Dagon’s forces. Mean while Dagon’s fleet hidden behind the planet, sprung the trap and began their attack on the marine fleet. The attack on the marine fleet was so brutal that the Angels’ battle barge Angel’s Fury was crippled beyond repair and rest of the fleet was destroyed piece meal. On the planet the Angels where fighting a fierce battle with Dagons forces and didn’t realized this all a trap until it was too late. Over three hundred marines lay dead or wounded. Dagon took great delight in his victory and he took what geneseed he could recover. Those marines that survived where sacrificed to Dark Gods of Chaos. As Dagon left the system, he torched the planet behind him leaving no survivors. When the Angels arrived to reinforce the other companies they only found fields of burning bodies and the pile of dead and defiled battle-brothers. The Angels vowed to capture and/or kill Dagon at any cost. .
The Angels of the Storm’s home of Calidor lies at edge of the Gothic Sector farthest from Terra... Calidor is covered in thick forests of pine, rugged mountains, deep canyons and large lakes. The people of Calidor live in fortify cities along river banks, lakes shores and along ocean beaches. People live in a semi-feudal age fighting over land and resources. People struggle just to survive with what little they can gather or hunt. Hunting in the forest is risking at best. There are predators the size of men stalking the forest. The game animals are large as well and very dangerous, also very hard to kill. Most people hunt in large parties to insure success. Some hunting parties are never heard from again. Each fortified city is a kingdom ruled by the noble elite. Each kingdom has their own knights and men-at-arms to wage war amongst the other kingdoms. Most warriors live and die by the sword. Honor and loyality are not given easily and he word is his bond. His sword and shield are his most trusted friend. Once in every ten years the Angels hold a Tounament of Champions in the Isle of Mann which last for 180 days. Where many a youth aspire to be honor to be belcome one of the Sky Warriors of Legend. The matches watch by the Chaplains of the Chapter, the match fought to the death those who survive are selected to become Marines and the rest are sent home in a pine box.
Their fortress-monastery sit inside the largest mountain on Calidor. The mountain is surrounded by a thick and ancient forest of 200 m tall trees. the forest is teaming with large predators and fell beasts. The poeple of Calidor call it the Black Forest is said be haunted with the cursed and the damned. Those that enter the place are never seen again. Those lucky enough to surive the Black Forest and reach the monastery become the Chapter's serfs and artificer. Most of the monastery houses the Chapter amd many of it many forges, valts, armory and cells. Deep within the mountain houses many of the Chapter's secrets and dungens. The Inner Circle is housed in the center of the fortress in the Great Hall of Heroes.
The Angels are master of the mechanized warfare. They fight in armored columns. They also use blitz tactics to gain a tactical advantage over the enemy forces. They make great use of Rhinos and Razorbacks far more than other Chapters. The Angels have a large a mount of predators, vindicators and Land Raiders in their armory. Their bikes, land speeders and scouts are used as mobile recon and intelligence gather units. They rarely deploy by via drop pod, they prefer to get their feet on the ground first. Angels deploy either by Thunderhawk gunship or by transport to the surface.
The Angels follow along the same line as the Dark Angels. They company master, grandmasters and a supreme grand master of the Chapter. Angels also have an Inner Circle as well. They have ten companies of marines. 1st Co. is all terminators and 2nd is bikes, attack bikes and Land Speeders, 3rd to 5th are battle companies, 6th - 9th as reserve companies and 10th company are Scouts.
The Angels believe that the Emperor is a man and not a god. They believe to serve the Emperor is an honor and a duty. They honor their Primarch with passion and await his return. Also have a fanatical befief that all enemies of the Emperor deverve only death. They will not ally themselfs with any xeno, mutant and abhuman. They view psykers with suspicion this does not mean they do not have them, just watch them closely. The Angels hunt the Fallen with extreme prejudice and give no quarter. They believe that the Fallen have betrayed the Lion, the Emperor, people of Caliban and that they deserve no mercy. Most of the Fallen are executed in the field and those unlucky enough to be capture are interrogated for months. They gather all the information they can then execute them. Those Fallen that are of special note are sent to the Rock for father interrogation.
The Angels come from the Dark Angels and have no mutation in their geneseed.
All Enemies of the Emperor Must Die!
