|Lord Skchalick's Elite|
First Founding (30th Millennium)
Chaos Lord Skchalick
Blood Red and Gold
Lord Skchalick's Elite are a warband of Chaos Space Marines drawn from the World Eaters Traitor Legion. The corrupted Astartes of the warband are all Khornate Berserkers. This warband is led by the infamous Chaos Lord Skchalick.
- First War for Armageddon (444.M41) - The Daemon Primarch Angron, the favoured Champion of Khorne, unified his World Eaters after the Battle of Skalathrax, and led the XII Legion once again deep into the heart of the Imperium and invaded the Hive World of Armageddon in 444.M41, in a lesser known conflict that would come to be known as the First War for Armageddon. The Khornate Warband known as Lord Skchalick's Elite sent an entire company of Berserkers in support, carving a bloody trail of slaughter across the doomed planet. But in the end, victory was denied to the Forces of Chaos due to Angron's own foolish belief in his victory before completing a total conquest of the world and the successful intervention of the Grey Knights Chapter of Space Marines. The Grey Knights' assault banished Angron back to the Warp for one hundred standard years and led to the failure of the overall campaign. During the World Eaters' withdrawal a portion of the Foresworn warband was left behind on Armageddon.
Lord Skchalick's Elite wear the colours of devotees of the Blood God; blood-red Power Armour with brass trim. These colours are identical to those used by their parent Traitor Legion, the World Eaters.
Lord Skchalick's Elite's badge is the same as that of their parent Traitor Legion, the World Eaters, which is a fanged maw engulfing a world. Some warriors wear a modified version of this symbol which omits the world, using only an open, large, fanged maw.
