The Apostles of MinthRas are a warband of Chaos Space Marines. They were first encountered by the forces of the Imperium of Man inside the Eye of Terror Warp rift in the 33rd Millennium. Almost nothing else is recorded about them in Imperial records.
- Invasion of Ultramar (999.M41) - The Invasion of Ultramar occurred when a large Chaos warband known as the Bloodborn invaded the Ultramarines' Realm of Ultramar, led by the Iron Warriors Warsmith Honsou and the Daemon Prince M'kar the Reborn. Both were servants of the Ruinous Powers who had sworn revenge against the Ultramarines for the past wrongs they believed had been done to them. This Chaos invasion occurred roughly concurrently with Abaddon the Despoiler's 13th Black Crusade in 999.M41, though the Bloodborn's invasion was not officially a part of the Black Crusade's forces. The Bloodborn were comprised of a large following of multiple warbands and rogue regiments comprised of both Planetary Defence Forces and Imperial Guardsmen. These throwaway troops were used as cannon fodder during the Bloodborn's initial assaults. The rest of the Bloodborn's elite forces were comprised of Chaos Space Marine warbands which included the Apostles of MinthRas, the Skulltakers, the Claws of Lorek, and the Death Shadows. The Apostles of MinthRas were not a part of the Bloodborn themselves, and unlike the other Chaos warbands and the Iron Warriors detachment, they were not often seen fighting alongside the Bloodborn's main forces.
The Apostles of MinthRas wear red Power Armour with a silver trim and black heretical markings.
The badge for this Chaos Space Marine warband is a black skull, with a red eight-pointed star of Chaos on its forehead, centred on a field of red.
