Unforgiven Hall of Heroes

This was initiated as an ongoing project on the Bolter & Chainsword by Bellicose and grew from there.

What we now have is a list of known Dark Angel and Successor characters from all Games Workshop sources. In each instance a source reference is given plus any relevant notes.

As more material becomes available or if older material is unearthed then this list will be updated.

The Lion called and we answered with pride,
Given duty we stood with our brothers,
Not a step back,
No enemy forgiven,
In his glory,
Till the sword is reforged,
We are the
Dark Angels
