There Will be Blood - The Blood Angels expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon is released22 Apr 2015 0
The Warhammer 40k universe is stuffed full of what seems like an endless supply of different military formations and hardware – which, usefully for a published, allows a whole raft of expansions to be made seamlessly to any given product. Slitherine are certainly utilising this with the series of expansions to their successful Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon title. Last month we had the Salamander’s Space Marine chapter added in Vulkan’s Wrath, and now it is the turn of the Blood Angels.
This expansion adds another 10 new missions to the game centred around the Blood Angels chapter. However, that does appear to be all that is new – mind you it isn’t an expensive DLC. I guess that given that the 2nd War for Armageddon is a fixed historical event in the Warhammer 40k universe there is little chance that we will see new races added to the game – perhaps fans need to push for a new 40k title from Slitherine for that.
Here are some screenshots showing the Blood Angels in their scarlet glory, and the Slitherine press bumf for your edification …

"Be bloody, bold and resolute” (motto of the Blood Angels 10th Company)
The reputation of the Armageddon Steel Legion is firmly established and it’s well known that their army is only made of hardboiled soldiers and top notch war machines. However repelling a massive invasion led by the infamous and furious Ork Warlord of Waaagh! Ghazghkull, seems impossible without the support of a chapter or two of Space Marines!
When it comes to killing Orks and proving their valor on the frontline, Blood Angels are never far away. Specialized in shock assault operations, these superhuman warriors devoted to the Primarch Sanguinus are Armageddon’s last hope!
In Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon – Angels of Death, players can begin a whole new campaign taking control of the Blood Angels as they battle the Ork invaders from the ash wastes of Armageddon, all the way to the deepest caverns and claustrophobic corridors of the massive Hive cities!
A merciless war is raging on the surface of Armageddon. And this epic episode of Warhammer 40,000 history is not going to end anytime soon as other Space Marines chapters will join the fight in the near future.
