To face the Blood Angels in battle is to face the unbounded fury of the Primarch Sanguinius himself. To oppose them it to invite your own doom. They fight like madmen, possessed of a bloodthirst wholly unnatural and abhorrent. That something more than fervent faith drives them to their acts of bloodshed is certain.

Doom: (backing away, horrified)...No. It's not possible!
(Ben tears the device off his back and crushes it, then charges at Doom. Doom holds out his gauntlets, but Ben grabs them before he can fire and squeezes, crushing the weapons and Doom's hands along with them. Doom screams in pain and falls to his knees)
