Blood Angels - Givon Furiosangr by Greyall Blood Angels - Givon Furiosangr by Greyall
On Signus, while Sanguinius lay in the ground with his legs shattered and at the mercy of Ka'Bhanda, Givon Furiosangr was on the other side of the battleline, crushing a Slaaneshi beast's skull. Later, when the Angel recovered and brought the fight to the Bloodthirster's cathedral, the Company Champion of the 8th Company was about to turn on his brethren.

On Terra, while the Angel was being throttled by Horus, Furiosangr was defending one of the Palace's entrances against the Iron Warriors, despite his pleas to accompany the Primarch.

It is no wonder, then, that the man that came out of the Horus Heresy was vastly different from the humble, down-to-earth and good-humoured warrior who had served in the Blood Angels for nearly four centuries.

Darkening his armour and donning a tabard, Givon became a crusader, often being called the Vermillion Templar. Now shunning the company of most of his brethren, he fought with the cold rage of one who knows no amount of traitor dead can ease his own sense of failure for never being there to help his father.

As such, and though it was Givon's chainaxe, Tyrannus, that spelled the doom for thousands of heretics, it was the Angel's shield, The Wall of Sorrow, that became a relic for the Sons of Sanguinius. As detailed as a painting on the halls of the Legion's cathedral, the great shield depicts Furiosangr's view of the Blood Angels' responsibility for the death of their lord. Though the artificers of Baal claim no responsibility on it, the shield seems to exhude an aura of sorrow and despair.

So glad to be back to Power Armour. This is, so to speak, 'my own Astartes'. At first it was going to be a Black Templar, but then I figured I felt closer to Blood Angels.

I'll be finishing my Eldar next. Cheers, thanks for viewing and commenting.

Nice, chain axe! I still do not understand why it is so rare to see loyalist with such a great weapon. It seems that technical specs of chain axe is better then the chainsword has. And at last it is brutal!

Aye, I fully agree. It seems the chainaxe is related to World Eaters and brutal Astartes, but then you see an Ultramarine with a big power axe and suddendly it's fine. Sure, the chain version splatters gore everywhere, etc., but so does a chainsword, even if to a lesser degree.

Yes, but the chain axe has bigger weight and power supply in my opinion. It makes axe better in penetrating through the heavy armor. Am i right? :confused:

Aye, I think so too, though some novels state that a chainweapon always has a hard time biting through power armour. That doesn't seem to apply to Khorne Berzerkers, though, but they're strong as hell.

Yup, it seems to be a problem of all chain weapons...If only somebody will not invent the power teeth technology for chain weapons. This will be a mess. =D

Dragon teeth - like Kharn's axe has - solves that =)
