The Corpsemakers

The Corpsemakers Warband Colour Scheme

The Corpsemakers are a cruel, twenty-strong squad of Chaos Terminators drawn from the notorious Black Legion. During the Eydolim Campaign, the Chaos Space Marine forces were bolstered by warriors from the Black Legion, few of whom were as influential, or as cruel, as the Corpsemakers. This rampaging squad of traitors and murders battled their way into the breach before their bloody advance was halted by the Imperial forces. The Corpsemakers' allegiance, like their parent legion, are to Chaos Undivided.

Warband HistoryEdit

Notable CampaignsEdit

  • Eydolim Campaign (Unknown Date.M41) - The Corpsemakers were among the murderous alliance of Chaos Space Marines that served the Greater Daemon Kor Megron in assailing the world of Eydolim and other nearby worlds. Amongst the Chaos Space Marine forces, few were as influential, or as cruel, as the Corpsemakers. This particular Chaos campaign was unusual, in that such overwhelming assaults and universal cooperation is normally the province of a Black Crusade. This speaks volumes of Kor Megron's powers of being able to manipulate so many disparate Chaos Space Marine warbands to do his bidding. When the Chaos Space Marines assaulted the walls of the capital city of Eydol City, a 20-strong squad of Traitors and murderers from this warband battled their way into the breach before their bloody advance was halted.

Warband AppearanceEdit

Warband ColoursEdit

The Corpsemakers wear the same colours as the Black Legion of which they are part, predominately black Power Armour with gold trim. Like many different Chaos warbands and companies, many warriors of this particular warband choose to adopt individual schemes and iconography on their armour.

Warband BadgeEdit

This warband typically adopts the symbol of the Black Legion, incorporating elements of the Legion badge of the former Sons of Horus with the eight-pointed Star of Chaos.
