Blood Angels: A full ceremony on Baal with the chapters chaplains and sanguinary priests attending. The chaplains say a blessing to suppress the black rage while the captain recalls tales of valor and courage. A sanguinary priest reveals his Blood Chalice. As the priest fills the chalice with the blood running through his veins this fills the marine with honour and the seconded marine then drinks from the icon of the Holy Relic inspiring him to achieve great feats in the name of his Primarch and his chapter.
Thats my take on it anyway.
Yes, Blood Chalice and Sanguinary Priest most definitely. Also I imagine it all taking place in a rokoko kind of palace with richly decorated balconies, white marble and gold, filled with glorious white light, beneath the golden statue of Sanguinius. Full war gear of course.
Or in the semi translucent chapel of a ship floating above the clouds.
Hmmm maybe not FULL wargear, a simple pristine white toga type robe (slightly stained from the ritualistic, sacrificial, scarring and blood letting of a true Angelic leaving party).
