Dark angels like to kill other space marines. They hate black templar and SW. Also they like to clash with inquisitors. All because of the fallen. if you can offer insight links or would like to share stories this is your chance. spread your knowledge:yes:
Well, I wouldn't say they like it or that they intentionally do it regularly (though it is icing on their cake), they just do it because they feel that in hunting the fallen they are redeeming themselves in the eyes of the Emperor, and they care a lot more about the Emperor than they do members of the Inquisition. So from their point of view, they are serving the Emperor by killing their allies.Dark angels like to kill other space marines. They hate black templar and SW.

I would be very interested in any fluff having to do with them fighting the Inquisition, like their supposed space battles in which they relentlessly slaughter members of the Ordo Malleus.
For those who don't know about the story of DA versus BT, it is in the back of Codex: Black Templars.
A BT fleet captures a Dark Angel in Black armour and hold him prisoner. Little do they know, he is a member of the fallen. A big DA fleet shows up, and demands that the BT hand the prisoner over. They refuse, which results in the DA wiping out he entire BT fleet.
I absolutely love the irony of this story. Here is a loyal and well-known chapter that is very agressive in terms of "crusading" or fighting enemies of the Imperium, going to extreme measures to get the bad guys. And after all that, one of their fleets gets wiped out by their own allies, to whom they were trying to prove their loyalty to the Emperor. The irony is that only the DA are willing to go as far as they did to redeem themselves int he eyes of the emperor, and in doing so, kill others trying to do the same thing.
I'd agree.. they don't like killing their allies. I doubt they feel a great sense of pleasure in opening fire on other servants of the Imperium. But they do sometimes feel it's neccesary.
I'm not even sure they're trying to redeem themselves.. It may just be that they want to eradicate any trace of the fallen before anyone else finds out about it.
Then again, I'm not a DA fan, so I might be biased.
I think that one of the reasons i like dark angels is because they cross the line and fight their own allies. They are very rebelious and i have reached that stage fighting with my folks everyday over nothing. another reason that they appeal to me

Seems some people misunderstand the Dark Angel/Space Wolf Rivalry
Its more of a Feud than true hatred and just makes them not like working together, there is no Dark Angel plan to invade Fenris for example.
On a related note- frequently clashing with Inquisitors will get you killed even if your a Chapter Master, See the Celestial Lions for an example.
Here's something interesting: the Dark Angels home world is called Caliban. That's one letter off from Taliban. Coincidence? I hope so.
I know that the Inquisition wouldn't take kindly to being attacked by their own allies... but what's the story about DA fighting the Inquisitors about? Personally, I haven't read any of this sort of fluff regarding the DA, so I would assume that no Inquisition members survived to tell the tale.
Okay, here's a couple of things I know.
1. The SW vs. DA thing is actually mostly a friendly rivalry (or was) as supposedly Russ and Lion dueled many times just for a test of skill and fun, (think abou it, schooling a dozen marines at time gets boring after awhile, while fighting someone equally skilled as you, makes for a more interesting and fun competition) Though, Lion usually won I believe thier duels numbered at about 7 with russ winning 2 I believe the Dark Angels dislike the wolves now because they're ashamed of thier secret and no longer feel worthy to fight alongside the desecendants of one of thier Primarchs best friends.
2. Okay, everybody loves to hate, well most, the inquisition. Well, the Dark Angels according to a website I viewed only shortly, due to being so darn buggy. That the Dark Angels almost feel honor in killing inquisitors because the Inner Circle feels that they are corrupt and traitorous. Also, occasionally they leave survivors on purpose so as to be a warning to others who would pry where they shouldn't. So, now your asking "why doesn't the Grey Knights wipe them out?" Here's the reasons, first the grey Knights are far rarer than even normal marines, never numbering more than 2,000 at a high point. Second, the Dark Angels and ALL thier succesors are linked, yes it's true they work while it may seem seperately for the same agenda, all the chapters inner circles converse reguraly. Also, Ezekiel can see the future and keep track of the fallen that are relativley close by. Represented by "Know Thine Enemy" Pretty sweet huh? So, if you think about it the "Dark Angels" (including thier succesors) are about, Legion Strength, 4,000 Strong with just the codex mentioned ones. Also, GK are usually said to "number only as many a a single chapter"..... so 4 marines to every 1 grey knight.... and 400 of those are terminators... and they'll never turn on each other.... you figure it out, not even a grey knight in all his glory can take that.
Qui est Mortis? Lol, the rep... neggatized for something... lol that nobody payed attention too... Lol Goodbye all, BTW This is permanent goodbye so save some bandwidth mods delete this account :D :evil: :D :evil: :D
A small task force of grey knights, possibly even one squad of terminators if I remember correctly, all but eradicated the Flame Falcons chapter of 1,000 marines.Originally Posted by Brother Darien
Don't mess with grey knights. They haven't single handedly ensured the continuing survival of the Imperium for millenia merely by having really shiny armour.
The fact is, the Inquisition can handle losses. If an inquisitor dies, his fellows aren't really going to worry too much, unless he was important for some reason. If the dark angels actually annoyed the inquisition as a whole, I wouldn't fancy their chances.
I donâ€™t think the Dark Angels would hate the Inquisition that much, only be distrustful of it and avoid scrutiny by any means necessary. I think they would only kill an Inquisitor if he started asking unpleasant questions about the Fallen, because Iâ€™m sure someone would notice if a whole lot of Inquisitors disappeared mysteriously in the space around Caliban, and the Dark Angels are trying not to draw attention to themselves after all. Better to suffer the indignity of having an Inquisitor around than risk his fellows coming to investigate what happened to him afterwards. As for leaving survivors as a warning, that doesnâ€™t work very well when youâ€™re dealing with the Inquisition; if they get as much as a hint of a Chapter being less than completely loyal theyâ€™ll bring everything they have to bear on that Chapter. As others have said, if you mess with the Inquisition enough, itâ€™ll start messing with you. And not even a Space Marine Chapter can survive that.Originally Posted by Brother Darien
As for the Grey Knights, I doubt they would fight the Dark Angels unless the Dark Angels went completely insane and summoned a daemon. Grey Knights deal with daemonic incursions, not traitors and heretics. If the Dark Angels were to be prosecuted for their sins, I think it would be the Sisters of Battle that came for them.
