|The Righteous Blade|
Strike swift and sure, leave no foe behind
The Dark Angels Legion
The Righteous Blade
Led by newly appointed Praetor Johannes Baas, the 41st Chapter of the 14th Order of Dark Angels are composed of recent recruits with a core of original Calibanite Knights. Johannes was trained by the Order of Caliban to hunt the monsters that lurked deep in its forests. He learned the hard way that no one style of fighting was better than another, and that everything is a weapon when your life depends upon it. Having seen many of his brothers perish at the maw of the vile beasts, Johannes feels keenly the loss of each of the men under his command. A symbol of the Chapter, several Terranic Great Swords were gifted to Johannes upon his appointment, the use of which he has granted to his senior advisors.
Johannes is a Knight of the Order and an inducted member of the Ravenwing. Never comfortable in the confines of transports, he can often be seen leading his forces from the front. Be it astride his warbike or strapped into a jump pack, Johannes yearns to take the battle to the foe as quickly as possible.
--The Battle for Eglurn--
The Righteous Blade saw their first actions as a new company on the fields of Maesta in the Eglurn system. Their engagements against the arch heretics of the Emperor's Children produced mixed results, but gained much in the way of battlefield data. A new style of combat was observed involving the fleshcrafted individuals of Fulgrim's 3rd Company, led by Lord Commander Eidolon. The weapons that they used were strange and exotic, using modified sound technology. The weapons subverted the Astartes protective measures and attacked directly their psyche.
Several training exercises were also undertaken with the warriors of the 10th Legion hosting the Righteous Blade. Ferrus Manus himself graced the field in one encounter, and Johannes was awed to see the will of the Emperor made manifest in one of his chosen sons. After being completely routed during the first exercise, the Dark Angels regathered and acquitted themselves well a second time.
--The Second Golloch War--
-The Death of Paterswold-
The 4114 were retasked to the doomed planet Pateswold in the Golloch system to assist their fellow Loyalist Legionaries. The sheer scale of devastation encountered was beyond anything they had seen previously, short of exterminatus. Hives burned at every corner of the horizon and the dead outnumbered the living a million to one. The Traitors had carpet bombed the world so extensively that the 4114's usual tactics had to be abandoned.
