|This article is about the Blood Angels relic; for the short story, see Sanctus Reach: Death Mask.|
Death Masks are worn by the Blood Angels. Fashioned from the likenesses of their fallen brothers, they are worn both to honour the dead and strike terror into their foes. There can be no denying their power when one sees the coruscating golden energy arcing across the mask's surface and the baleful light shining from its eyes. A Death Mask is worn over a Battle-Brother's helmet but provides no additional protection.
