beside the obvious Orks on Armageddon are there any particular grudges/notable battles between the Blood Angels and particular Xenos species?
Not what you would call particular in fluff, they have fought most stuff, but Armegedon, and in particular the slaying of Captain Tycho is a bit of a choker, but never got to the point where they get special rules or even a vendetta like say ultramarines and tyranids
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Of the major Chapters it's the Crimson Fists who have the ax to grind as it were, not just against Orks but against Games Workshop for their terrible "blowing themselves up" background and the obsession with the Black Templars.
Oh there will be hell to pay!
the blood angels are mainly against the black legion (join the queue lads)
they used to (think they still do) get a special bonus in close proximity of abbadon (extra leadership as the talon of horus killed their primarch)
but orks are also a bit of a nemesis
very few blood angel war stories sadly...i mean sure, the tyranids killed the ultramarines 1st company, and we never hear the bloody end of it...but Lord Dantes masterful leadership saves armageddon from sure destruction? ach nah no one wants to hear about that...lets tell them about yarrick instead
dirty GW...tell us about the Blood angels you shameless *****s!
Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes
i think the blood angls had some substanial boarding actions against tyranid ships and i read something somewhere about Blood Angels terminators clearing a Space Hulk of genestealers
