Burning Stars
Star of Chaos



Pre-Imperium (Suspected)




Chaos Undivided



The Burning Stars are a Traitor Titan Legion of the Dark Mechanicus that repudiated their oaths to the Emperor of Mankind and followed Warmaster Horus into the service of the Ruinous Powers during the Horus Heresy. There is very little information in the Imperial records about this obscure Titan Legion, though it is suspected to have been founded before the Age of the Imperium, during the Age of Strife. Even before the outbreak of open warfare, the climate on Mars was one filled with tension. There were unconfirmed suspicions that the Titan Legions stationed there had already secretly chosen sides in case of a potential conflict. At the outset of the Horus Heresy, when the great civil war within the Mechanicus known as the Schism of Mars broke out, the Burning Stars Titan Legion fought against the Loyalist Legio Ignatum (Fire Wasps). It is assumed that the Burning Stars were either destroyed at the end of the Heresy or were driven towards the Eye of Terror along with the rest of the Forces of Chaos. Their current whereabouts are unknown.

Notable CampaignsEdit

  • Schism of Mars (ca. 205.M31) - When civil war erupted on Mars during the opening days of the Horus Heresy, in the Athabasca Valles the war machines of the Burning Stars and the Legio Ignatum fought in bloody close quarters through the teardrop landforms caused by catastrophic flooding in an earlier, ancient age of the Red Planet. Neither force could gain the advantage, nor could either claim victory, so after a night’s undignified scrapping, both withdrew to lick their wounds.
