Blood Angels Erelim

One of the sinister Erelim, the choir of five Blood Angels Chaplains that guard the abode of the Chapter's High Executioner; note the lack of adornment save the Chapter icon displayed prominently on both pauldrons

The Erelim are a specialist formation unique to the Blood Angels Space Marine Chapter. They are composed of a quintumvirate of Chaplains charged with protecting the hidden reclusiam of Astorath the Grim upon their Chapter homeworld of Baal, whose location is only known to the Chapter Masters of the Blood Angels and their Successor Chapters.

Stripped of all insignia and adornment save their Chapter's symbol emblazoned upon their shoulder plates, they are as dark mirrors to the Sanguinary Guard that stand in the light of Lord Commander Dante.

Even their Skull Helms have been daubed death-black and their Jump Packs have been framed by halos of the darkest feathers. Nothing but the glow of their crimson optics betray them in the half-light of their eternal posts.


  • Artificer Armour
  • Winged Jump Pack - The Erelim wear a modified version of the standard Astartes Jump Pack that is designed to emulate Sanguinius' own angelic wings. But instead of being angelic white, these wings represent a dark mirror of the Sanguinary Guard's Jump Packs, framing these guardians with a halo of the darkest feathers. When leaping down from above, it is as if the grim executioner has taken flight on broad angelic wings like an avenging angel of legend, thus striking fear into his foes.
