The Angels of Vengeance are a successor Chapter of the Dark Angels.[8]


Created during the Second Founding, the Angels of Vengeance have retained the original black colour-scheme of the Dark Angels[1][2]. Regarded as some of the most stubborn fighters of the Imperium of Man, these Space Marines have risked the future of their chapter many times, by throwing themselves in the most dire situations, and refusing to retreat even when their chances were almost nil.[3] They are even less well known than those of the other Unforgiven Chapters, for they shun fame and celebrations and instead concentrate on their duties and mission. The Angels of Vengeance embody the stubborn devotion of the original Dark Angels Legion above all else, with this trait bordering on single-mindedness. It is also said that the Angels of Vengeance are unrelenting in their persecution of foes to the Imperium, maintaining not only an extreme hatred of Xenos but an even more fanatical disdain for traitors and Chaos Space Marines.[5a]

The Chapter's future has been put in jeopardy several times, beginning with their depletion in the Forgotten Wars. More recently, in the aftermath of the Siege of Apolis their losses were so heavy that the Chapter was forced to spend a century rebuilding itself before it could be deployed for battle once more.[5a] The Chapter, like all of the Unforgiven, has close ties to the Dark Angels. From 666-688.M38, the Master of the 2nd Company of the Angels of Vengeance led the Dark Angels Ravenwing after three of its successive Ravenwing Grand Masters had been lost hunting fallen.[5b]

The Chapter has two Companies that are dedicated to hunting the Fallen and are modeled after the Dark Angels' Deathwing and Ravenwing. They are the Terminator-armoured Dreadwing and the mobile Raptorwing Companies.[7]

One of the Angels of Vengeance's main recruiting worlds is the Death World Damnia, which was discovered while chasing the Fallen Cypher.[6]
