Blood Angels Sanguinary Guard
The Sanguinary Guard, also known as the Ikisat or the Burning Ones, are the very elite of veteran Blood Angels, tried and tested in mind, body and spirit, and exemplify the values ??of their Primarch Sanguinius to a degree unrivaled by other Space Marines .
This sacred order of warriors traces its roots back to the personal bodyguard of their primarch, who fought at his side in the most terrifying battles imaginable before being nearly wiped out during the attack on Horus' battle barge.
Of this august force, only one survivor remained: Azkaellon, Herald of the Primarch, and only because Sanguinius insisted that he remain on Terra. On his shoulders lay the heavy burden of re-establishing the order, to serve as a beacon of hope for the dark days ahead. It is largely thanks to his efforts that the Sanguinary Guard's legacy survived with the Blood Angels and spread to all of their successors.
Ten thousand years later, after the formation of the Great Rift, the Sanguinary Guard once again faced destruction at the hands of the Hive Fleet Leviathan. In the subsequent devastation of Baal, only a single member of the Sanguinary Guard survived, Caraeus.
Unlike other veterans, the Sanguinary Guard do not select their gear based on their experience, instead using traditional weapons and armor of their Chapter: the wrist-mounted Angelus Boltgun and the Glaives Encarmine, two-handed power weapons. Golden artisan armor girds their bodies and sinister death masks cover their faces as they leap into battle thanks to winged jump units. Depending on the situation, they can carry the banner of the order into war.
