Default Blood Ravens

Hey guys. I've been thinking about picking up Space Marines as my 2nd army and looking through the different chapters and fluff the Blood Ravens seem to have the most appeal to me.

However I'm still at a complete loss to what makes them different in-game as opposed to regular marines. Can anyone give me a basic rundown of what they do, how they work, and what makes them distinctive?

They have loads of Librarians, and they are specialist at infiltrating. Apart from that you can play them how you like. And really all they are is a paint sheme as there is nothing official like you have for Imperial Fists or such like.

Well, that is fluff-wise. if you ahve the Space Marine codex take a look at the end of the section about chapter traits. there is a small sectiona t the bottom of the page with the minor disadvantages that lists the traits of some other space marine chapters. The last one listed is the Blood Ravens which have the traits See But Don't Be Seen and Trust Your Battle Brothers along with the flaw Flesh Over Steel

As to what those traits and flaws do, you 'll have to read the marine codex.
