Hey, what were the difference between the Blood Angels post and pre heresy?

Did they have a different colorscheme or symbols?

i think they had the same scheme and symbols. the only difference is the black rage (or the lack of it).

Blood Angels were in the colours Brown and green, they rode magical unicorns to battle and fired pixies from their bolt guns!

Nah, as above, same but not DC, Black Rage or Red Thirst!

Actually the Index Astartes articles example Pre-Heresy Blood Angel had a yellow 'codex' tactical arrow instead of the post heresy company designation.

actually i think they still had the red thirst but not black rage because iirc the red thirst is an accident in the gene seed but the black rage is the after shock of Sanguinius's death.

That's how I remember it. I always associated it with 'Krull' and the cyclopians, how they gave up an eye forthe gift of foresight (like sanguinus had) but at the expense of the only thing they could forsee was their own deaths.

I thought that the red thirst was something associated with the black rage....that they totally give into it in the end and become convinced they are Sanguinius on the eve of his death?

I got the impression that is part of the flaw....

Every legion except the Emperors children did not have chest eagles too.

The first outbreak of Black Rage happened before the Siege of Terra during the battles against the daemon of the Signis Cluster. It resurfaced immediately after the BA felt the psychic impact of Sanguinius's death on Terra. It looks, now, like it was something latent all along.
