The Dark Fortress

Dark Angels Battle Standard

Shown below are a selection of Battle Standards used by the Dark Angels at various times over the millennia.

Battle Standards are carried by Battle Groups of less than two companies in strength, or Battle Groups not commanded by either a Master or a Grand Master, or where the Chapter Standard is forbidden to be carried due to a likelihood of capture.

The Standards would be displayed on HQ sites, captured structures etc etc. The honour of carrying the standard would be bestowed upon a Veteran Sergeant, who would with his accompanying protection of two battle brothers not let the Standard out of his sight. Over the centuries Battle Standards have become more simplified to avoid confusion with renegade/unknown Chapters.
