Background

They are almost as famous as their progenitors, but are known to quickly abandon war efforts, at grievous cost to their allies, in favour of hunting the Fallen. As such, most Imperial forces refuse their help, which causes some conflict with Space Marines of other Chapters[4]. The Angels of Redemption's numerous abandonments of their assigned tasks, eventually led to calls for the Chapter to be censured by the Inquisition, but this been forestalled due to the opening of the Great Rift. The giant Warp Storm has prevented reports of the Angels of Redemption's further misdeeds from reaching Terra, which has allowed the most dedicated of the Unforgiven Chapters to continue their secret quest to hunt the Fallen.[9a]

Organization

The Angels of Redemption differentiate somewhat from their Dark Angels fore-bearers, which replaced the the 1st and 2nd Companies with the Deathwing and Ravenwing respectively. Instead, the Angels of Redemption have dubbed their first 2 companies Redwings in emulation.[9b]

Notable Battles

  • The Cataclysm of Souls: The Angels of Redemption fight alongside the rest of the Unforgiven, but undertake their own dark mission during the campaign that likely involved the Fallen.[9]
  • Defence of Gatlinghive: The Angels of Redemption abandoned their posts just before the Orks' final assault, to capture the Fallen Baalakai, a former Captain. This resulted in the fall of Gatlinghive and the massacre of all the remaining humans.[3][6a]
  • Achilus Crusade: A force composed of members of the 1st and 2nd companies were deployed into the Jericho Reach in 811.M41, without any request from the high command of the crusade. They arrived at Fortress Spite, Ebongrave’s seat of power, and demanded entry into the dungeons of Sepulchre Sigma. The guards' refusal to allow entry led to a short firefight, resulting in the Space Marines slaying 33 men and leaving for the Hadex Anomaly after retrieving a stasis-casket from the dungeons.[4]
