View Full Version : Blood Angels ever fought Tyranids?

21-05-2009, 05:14
I was wondering if there is any history/fluff of specific Blood Angel companies or even successor chapters battling the Tyranid Hive fleets.

I ask because i've been working on some 'preferred enemy' Blood Angels, with armor plates and gaunt heads all over them.

The original space hulk, IIRC, was blood angels against genestealers.

i love those old space hulk games, still have them in my garage. and yes, im pretty sure every army in 40k has fought the nids.

As said Blood Angels have had a fair bit of experience battling Genestealer Broods, I'm not aware of any specific mentions of them engaging full on Hive Fleets however.

On the successor front there is of course the Lamenters who have been all but annihilated by Hive Fleet Kraken. (Lexicanum says they have 3 companies left, current Tyranid codex says 1 company)

All the armys of 40k have probably fought the nids, but the only specific incident i have seen on the Blood Angels fighting nids is the upcoming audiobook Heart of Rage.
