This is a complete pictorial list of official Space Marine Chapters (M-Z) created by Games Workshop. It does not include any fan-created Chapters or the Traitor Legions. However, it does include Renegade Chapters of Chaos Space Marines as well as those Space Marine Chapters considered Excommunicate Traitoris by the High Lords of Terra whether they serve the Dark Gods or not. This is not a complete list as not every Chapter in existence in the Imperium of Man is known.

Mantis Warriors The Mantis Warriors, originally known as the Mantis Legion, are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter believed to have been Founded as part of the 8th Founding in 598.M35, created to help relieve the White Scars in monitoring and countering the many threats harboured by the Maelstrom Warp Storm in the Ultima Segmentum. In the early 900's.M41, they found themselves on the wrong side of the Badab War, and were forced to give up their home world and pursue a 100 year penitent crusade to seek the Emperor's forgiveness. After a century, they are no allowed to recruit new battle-brothers after having proved their loyalty, when they played a critical role in throwing back a Tyranid splinter fleet from the strategically-placed Imperial world of Herodian IV.

Marauders SP
Marauders The Marauders are a Loyalist Second Founding Successor Chapter of the White Scars according to the Apocrypha of Davio, written in the 33rd Millennium. Little else is known about them in Imperial records save that the Mantis Warriors Chapter, which grew infamous during the Badab War, was created from the gene-seed stock of the Marauders.

Marines Errant Battle-Brother
Marines Errant Livery
Marines Errant The Marines Errant are a Loyalist, fleet-based Space Marine Chapter of unknown origin created late during the 23rd Founding in the 37th Millennium, to repair the gap left in Imperial military forces by the loss of other Chapters. Further details of this Chapter's origins can be found in the Mythos Angelica Mortis, the great work concerning the Space Marines of this age, which lists five such new-founded Crusade Chapters and their blood-progenitors, with the Marines Errant recorded as having the Eagle Warriors Chapter as their immediate forebears. The Eagle Warriors' gene-seed was drawn from the Ultramarines' lineage, although why the Eagle Warriors in particular were singled out for the honour of a "named" Founding being drawn from their ranks at this time remains lost to posterity.

Marines Exemplar The Marines Exemplar are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter created from unknown origins and Founding. They are one of the Chapters founded to make up the Astartes Praeses, the twenty Chapters created to guard the regions surrounding the Eye of Terror. Nothing else is known about this Chapter in current Imperial records.
Marines Malevolent Astartes
Marines Malevolent SP
Marines Malevolent The Marines Malevolent is a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter founded in the 32nd Millennium, and are of unknown genetic origin. While loyal to the Emperor of Mankind and deeply dedicated to the eradication of all of the Imperium's enemies, they have at times shown a disturbing and callous disregard for the lives of the civilians of the Imperium as long as their mission objectives are obtained, which has brought them into conflict with the Salamanders Chapter as well as many other Imperial organisations, including the Inquisition. The Marines Malevolent take a flippant view in regards to collateral damage and the use of excessive force. If innocent civilians or other Imperial forces happen to die due to their brutal tactics, then so much the better. This Chapter believes there is no such thing as "innocence," simply varying degrees of guilt, and that people who will not fight to defend themselves have no right to live as their freedom was purchased with the blood of others more worthy of the Emperor's blessings.

Marines Vindicant The Marines Vindicant are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown origin and Founding. Almost nothing else is known about the Chapter in Imperial records save that they played a major role in the scouring of the world of Vorlinghast in 981.M41, which had been overrun by Plague Zombies and the Death Guard Traitor Legion.

Mentors Chapter Badge
Mentors The Mentors, sometimes referred to in Imperial records as the Mentor Legion, are a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter of unknown origin created during the 26th Founding in 738.M41, making them one of the most recently Founded Chapters in the Imperium of Man. Little is known about this Chapter in Imperial records, though the Mentors are known to be a reclusive and suspicious Chapter of Astartes who no longer trust other Space Marine Chapters or the Imperial government, preferring to work alone and unobserved by all save the foes of Mankind and the Emperor.
Metamarine Marine
Metamarines SP
Metamarines The Metamarines are a Loyalist Space Marine Successor Chapter of the Ultramarines created during an unknown Founding. The most renowned action of the Metamarines was their participation in the 13th Black Crusade in 999.M41, where they aided other Imperial forces in the defence against Abaddon the Despoiler and the Forces of Chaos unleashed upon the world of Cadia and its surrounding sectors.
Mark VII Sternguard Veteran
Minotaurs Livery
Minotaurs The Minotaurs are a savage Loyalist Space Marine Chapter whose actual origins and Founding remain unknown. The Space Marine formation by this name at large in the Imperium today appears to bear little resemblance to accounts of its past. That there existed a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter called the Minotaurs, created during the 21st Founding, known as the "Cursed Founding," of the 36th Millennium, is not widely contested in the Imperial record, but whether or not they are the same as the Chapter bearing the name that took part in the suppression of the Macharian Heresy in the opening decades of the 41st Millennium and the same Chapter that would later go on to play a crucial and bloody role in the Badab War and the Orphean War is not so certain. The Minotaurs possess a reputation for being unusually xenophobic Astartes, even for the Imperium, as well as often unreliable combatants who do not work well with other Imperial military units.
Mort Marine
Mortifactors Shoulder Pad
Mortifactors he Mortifactors are a Loyalist, Codex Astartes-compliant Second Founding Primogenitor Chapter of the Ultramarines founded during the 31st Millennium. The Mortifactors recruit from the austere Feral World of Posul, where the sun never rises on its frigid plains and its population of nomadic tribes are constantly in conflict with one another and practice cannibalism. The Mortifactors' Neophytes are chosen from the most vicious and skilled warriors on the planet -- who subsequently have a very morbid and dark outlook on life

Nemesis The Nemesis Chapter is a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter. They are a Second Founding Successor Chapter of the Ultramarines Legion. There is little information on this little-known Chapter in current Imperial records, except that they are descended from those Ultramarines companies who fought alongside the then-Loyalist Night Lords Legion during a brutal purgation campaign against Abhuman corsairs during the Great Crusade. Afterwards they bore black gauntlets, midnight blue helms and the ancient weighing scales and death's head icon of judgment in heraldic opposition of their Legion numeral, and took the name of "Nemesis" as their own. During the Second Founding, the existing "Nemesis" companies formed the core group of Astartes for the newly formed Nemesis Chapter.

Rainbow Warriors Armor
Rainbow Warriors SP
Rainbow Warriors The Rainbow Warriors are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter known to be a Successor Chapter of the Ultramarines, created during an unknown Founding. There almost no further mention of this obscure Chapter in official Imperial records. The Chapter's homeworld is called Prism. It should also be noted that in official Imperial records of Space Marine Chapter Homeworlds, this map displays the galactic locations of the various Space Marine Chapter Homeworld. But in the case of the Rainbow Warriors Chapter, instead of displaying their planet with the Chapter's name, it simply says, "record deleted." By looking closely, it is clear that the Chapter badge of this deleted Chapter is that of the Rainbow Warriors. This Chapter's current status is unknown.

RampagersBadge
Rampagers The Rampagers are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter and a Second Founding Successor Chapter of the White Scars. Like their progenitors, the Rampagers make use of ritual facial scarring to denote both the rank and achievements of Astartes in the Chapter. These scars are applied during a long, sacred Chapter ceremony called the Blooding. The blood drawn from the faces of the Space Marines during this ritual is then mixed with the drinks served during the feast that always follows the completion of the ceremony.
Raptor Battle Brother Mark VII
Raptors Icon
Raptors The Raptors are a Loyalist Second Founding and rare Successor Space Marine Chapter of the Raven Guard. They have been heavily involved in many of the most recent campaigns of the Imperium of Man, including the Badab War, the Third War for Armageddon and the Taros Campaign. The Raptors' Chapter culture is one that is very wary of the idea of martial glory or honour, and prefers instead to emphasise pragmatism, adaptability and completion of the mission over all other concerns.

Raven Guard Badge
Raven Guard The Raven Guard is one of the original First Founding Space Marine Legions and was originally the XIXth Legion before the Second Founding and the adoption of the Codex Astartes. Their Primarch was Corvus Corax (a name which is a play on the Latin binomial species name for raven, corvus corax). The Raven Guard's homeworld is the planet called Deliverance, the airless mining moon of the Forge World Kiavahr, though its original name, before the Horus Heresy, was Lycaeum. The Raven Guard's fortress-monastery on Deliverance is known as the Ravenspire. The Raven Guard are known for their cool-headed, even intellectual temperament, their superb infiltration skills and skill at furious close-quarters engagements. The Raven Guard are the masters of unseen and guerrilla warfare, only engaging in frontal assaults when no other option presents itself. The Raven Guard is also rightly feared for the potent units of Assault Marines they field, who use a pair of Lightning Claws instead of the usual Bolt Pistol and Chainsword.

Raven's Watch SP
Raven's Watch The Raven's Watch is a little known Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding or origin. Very little is recorded in official Imperial records, with the exception of their most recent defence of the beleaguered world of Kitab in 990.M41, which came under attack by Tyranids, a splinter of Hive Fleet Eumenides.

Reclaimers The Reclaimers are one of the Loyalist Space Marine Chapters Founded as part of the Astartes Praeses -- one of the 20 Chapters of Astartes mentioned in the ancient tome known as the Mythos Angelica Mortis that was created to defend the regions surrounding the Eye of Terror in the Segmentum Obscurus from the Forces of Chaos. The Reclaimers are a Chapter of unknown Founding and origin. The level of technology and weaponry used by the Reclaimers Chapter appears to be higher than the Imperial average, even among the usually well-equipped Astartes, leading many outsiders to suspect that their Armoury is particularly extensive and diverse.

Red Consuls The Red Consuls are a little known Loyalist Space Marine Chapter descended from the lineage of the Ultramarines. This Chapter's most notable actions occurred in 926.M41, when they were a part of an Astartes task force, that defended the Vidar Sector from the Necron weapon known as the World Engine, a planet-sized spacecraft, armed with Gauss Projectors capable of scorching entire planets of all life. Twelve times, the Imperial task force attempted to overwhelm the unstoppable engine of destruction. But only through the heroic, but ultimately, suicidal actions of a fellow Space Marine Chapter, was the World Engine brought low.
Red Hunters Tact Marine
RedHuntersBadge3
Red Hunters The Red Hunters are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown origins and Founding that has strong ties to the Inquisition. The Red Hunters Chapter has a long history of putting themselves at the service of the Inquisition and the entire Chapter has been known to serve under the command of an Inquisitor Lord on certain occasions, most notably during the lamentable campaigns known as the Months of Shame and the Siege of Vraks.

Red Scorpions Marine
Red Scorpions Chapter Icon
Red Scorpions The Red Scorpions are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter known to be composed of conservative Imperial purists who are famed for their complete and utter devotion to Imperial doctrine, past the point where pragmatism or even reason would seem to require otherwise. The Chapter is most renowned among other Astartes for their absolute adherence to every line of the Codex Astartes, which is unheard of in any other Chapter -- including the Ultramarines. They are considered perhaps the most intensely Loyalist and puritanical of all the Space Marine Chapters and will not serve beside any xenos or mutants, including even Imperially-sanctioned Abhumans like Squats and Ogryns. However, they have a high-regard for psykers and make extensive use of Space Marine Librarians. Equally unique in nature is the frequency with which the Red Scorpions' Apothecaries are present in the Chapter's Tactical Squads as squad leaders in place of a Sergeant.

Red Talons Chapter Livery
Red Talons The Red Talons are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter and a Second Founding Successor Chapter of the Iron Hands. The Red Talons were founded in the wake of the tragic events that occurred during the lamentable Horus Heresy, having suffered the tragedy of the loss of their Primarch Ferrus Manus during the open days of the rebellion at the Drop Site Massacre on the world of Istvaan V at the hands of his one-time friend and brother, Fulgrim, Primarch of the traitorous Emperor's Children Legion. The Red Talons were Founded from a portion of the Iron Hands Legion's Morragul Clan, made up primarily of outcasts and the most unstable elements of the Xth Legion, who fought and died under the merciless command of their bloody-handed Clan commander, the Iron-Lord Autek Mor. The Red Talons' fortress-monastery is located on their homeworld of Raikan.
Red Templars Astartes
Red Templars Livery
Red Templars The Red Templars are a Loyalist, Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter of unknown origin and Founding date. The Red Templars have been known to make use of Assault Bikes at the squad level in combat. Little else is currently known about this Chapter in Imperial records.

Relictors Livery
Relictors The Relictors are a Renegade Space Marines Chapter raised in the 36th Millennium, though of an unknown origin and Founding. When the Relictors were first established they were known as the Fire Claws. Founded to guard against the threat of the Traitor Legions attacking from the Eye of Terror, the Relictors were once counted amongst the most stalwart defenders of Mankind. But Chaos is insidious and a sinister secret now lurks at the heart of the Chapter, a secret that almost destroyed it and threatens its very existence as well as the souls of its remaining Battle-Brothers. The Relictors are believed by some to be a Successor Chapter of both the Ultramarines and the Dark Angels, as gene-seed from both Chapters was probably used in their Founding, though this remains unknown for certain. The Relictors were one of the 20 Chapters of the Astartes Praeses, created by the Imperium of Man after the Horus Heresy specifically to guard the threatened sectors of Imperial space surrounding the Eye of Terror.

Sable Swords Battle-Brother
Sable Swords Livery
Sable Swords The Sable Swords are a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter of unknown origin and Founding said to be created in the latter years of the 41st Millennium, making them one of the newest Space Marine Chapters to be raised, though there is some conflicting evidence on this in the Imperial records, with some reference to the Chapter existing as early as the 32nd Millennium. This discrepancy has not yet been reconciled. The Sable Swords Chapter were created following the valiant sacrifice of the entirety of the Astral Knights Chapter to stop the threat of a massive Necron World Engine on the outskirts of the Danorra System in 926.M41. In the wake of the World Engine's destruction, the Astral Knights were struck from the roster of active Space Marine Chapters. The Sable Swords Chapter was formed to fill the void and took up stewardship of the all-but abandoned Fortress-Monastery. The Sable Swords' Fortress-Monastery is located on the world of Obsidia in the Ultima Segmentum.
Salamanders 4th Co
Salamanders Chapter Livery
Salamanders The Salamanders are a First Founding Space Marine Chapter whose Primarch was Vulkan. They originally served as the Imperium's XVIIIth Space Marine Legion during the Great Crusade and the Horus Heresy. Their homeworld is the volcanic Death World of Nocturne. An unusual trait of the Salamanders is that their Battle-Brothers tend to be slower in reflex reaction than other Chapters. Their gene-seed also causes a peculiar reaction in these Astartes' Melanochrome organ, resulting in an individual Battle-Brother's skin becoming obsidian-black and their eyes blazing with a burning red glow.

Sanctors of Terra The Sanctors of Terra were once a Loyalist Chapter of Space Marines of unknown origin and Founding.

Scythes of the Emperor The Scythes of the Emperor are a Codex Astartes-compliant, Loyalist Chapter of Space Marines who are allegedly a Successor Chapter of the Ultramarines of the 25th Founding.

Silver Sabres The Silver Sabres are a Codex Astartes-compliant Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding and origin. Almost nothing is known about this Chapter in current Imperial records. Their only notable action occurred in 984.M41, when a Warp rift opened above the Feudal World of Vhospis. An astropathic call reached Mercuria, the Silver Sabres Chapter home world, located less than a light year distant. Unfortunately, Daemons hunting the skies above the planet's besieged castles destroyed all of the Chapter's Drop Pods launched towards the surface. A lone Silver Sabres Astartes survived the disastrous drop assault, and rallies the people of Vhospis, reigniting their potent faith in the Emperor. They turn the tide slowly, day by gore-soaked day. Following these events, the Chapter's current status is unknown.
SK Marine
Silver Skulls Livery
Silver Skulls The Silver Skulls are a Codex Astartes-compliant Loyalist Chapter of Space Marines who are a possible Second Founding Successor Chapter of the Ultramarines, though this remains unconfirmed. The Silver Skulls have earned a reputation for achieving victory for the Imperium of Man no matter the odds stacked against them. Of course, this reputation has been earned because the Silver Skulls will only take to the battlefield when the psychic portents that their specialist Librarians known as Prognosticators receive from the Emperor indicate that the outcome of the combat will be favourable for the Chapter. The Silver Skulls' homeworld is the Feral World of Varsavia, which lies on the edge of the region of the galaxy known as the Gildar Rift in the Ultima Segmentum.

Sons of Antaeus The Sons of Antaeus are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter created during the 21st Founding, known as the "Cursed Founding," and Imperial records concerning the activities of the Sons of Antaeus are few. Like the Antaeus of Greek myth, the Astartes of the Sons of Antaeus Chapter are unusually large and robust physical specimens, even among their kind, and they are capable of surviving wounds and physical injuries that would kill even other Space Marines. The obvious links between the Chapter's name and the ancient Terran Herculean mythology could hint at a link between the Sons of Antaeus and the Ultramarines Chapter, but there is no official evidence to back this assumption. There are many rumours as to why they are so difficult to destroy, ranging from reinforced skeletons to enhanced genetics. At this time, the truth remains unknown.
Sons of Dorn Astartes 2
Sons of Dorn SP
Sons of Dorn The Sons of Dorn are a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter and a Successor Chapter of the Imperial Fists. They were created during an unknown Founding at some time during the 34th Millennium. The Sons of Dorn's Chapter home world is the Feudal World of Archea which is located in the Segmentum Solar. In 999.M41 Archea was ravaged by a splinter fleet of the Tyranids' Hive Fleet Leviathan. With the bulk of their Chapter deployed in defence of the Imperium around the Eye of Terror to halt the 13th Black Crusade, much of Archea was consumed by the Great Devourer. With a world and a Chapter to rebuild, it will likely take several standard centuries before the Sons of Dorn are back to full strength.

Sons of Medusa Livery
Sons of Medusa The Sons of Medusa are a Loyalist Successor Chapter of Space Marines drawn from the unforgiving Iron Hands Chapter, whose existence was ratified by an Imperial edict of the High Lords of Terra in 011.M37. The Sons of Medusa are a Chapter with a history of ruthless efficiency in the merciless persecution of the Imperium of Man's foes. Like their forebears, they are extreme devotees of the Emperor of Mankind and look with disgust upon those who lack their strength of will. They are a distinguished Chapter whose long roll of battle honours can be traced back to the early 37th Millennium.

Sons of Orar The Sons of Orar are a Codex Astartes-compliant Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of Ultramarines lineage, created during an unknown Founding. Their homeworld is named Armato and it lies in the Segmentum Ultima. This Chapter reveres Orar, an Ultramarines Legion Captain who won great renown in the wake of the Horus Heresy. The Sons of Orar are perhaps most famous for spearheading the Imperium of Man's massive assault upon the Eldar Craftworld Alaitoc.

Sons of Sanguinius The Sons of Sanguinius are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter and a Successor Chapter of the original Blood Angels Legion that were created during the Second Founding, which occurred during the early 31st Millennium following the dark years of the Great Scouring. A dark and brooding Chapter, the Sons of Sanguinius continually grieve for their lost Primarch Sanguinius who was slain at the hands of the treacherous Warmaster Horus at the end of the Horus Heresy. A brutal and bloodthirsty Chapter, they zealously prosecute the enemies of Mankind, often times displaying a disturbing and callous disregard for the lives of the civilians of the Imperium. Their attitude is, as long as their mission objectives are obtained, the means justify the ends. What separates the Sons of Sanguinius from many of their brother Chapters is their willingness to engage in rituals that involve the consumption of blood. Like their fellow Chapter, the Blood Drinkers, these blood rituals and ceremonies are the cause of their resistance to the twin curses of the Red Thirst and the Black Rage. Certainly, they experience a smaller proportion of their Battle-Brothers succumbing to the Black Rage.

Sons of Ulthunas The Sons of Ulthunas were once a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter. They rebelled against the Imperium of Man during the action remembered as the Ganymethian Betrayal. It is unclear if they are merely Renegade Space Marines who refuse to recognize Imperial rule or are now fully committed to the service of the Prince of Pleasure, Slaanesh, as Traitor Marines, though their increasingly mutated appearance and Chapter colour scheme would indicate that this is firmly the case.

Sons of the Raven The Sons of the Raven were a Codex Astartes-compliant Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding and origin. Based on their Chapter name, they are highly suspected of being a rare Successor Chapter of the venerable First Founding Raven Guard Chapter. Almost nothing is known about this Chapter in the Imperial records other than their participation in the campaign against the Forces of Chaos and the Hell-Forge of Sarum, where the Sons of the Raven were utterly annihilated in 416.M37
Soul Drinker Colour Scheme final
Soul Drinkers SP final
Soul Drinkers The Soul Drinkers were a Renegade Chapter of Space Marines declared Excommunicate Traitoris by the Inquisition because of their extremely high levels of mutation and obvious corruption by Chaos, yet the Soul Drinkers still considered themselves to be loyal to the Emperor of Mankind, if not to His Imperium . The Soul Drinkers were a Second Founding Successor Chapter of the Imperial Fists Legion. The Soul Drinkers were ultimately destroyed as a Chapter in the late 41st Millennium when they worked with the Imperial Fists to end a Chaotic plot initiated by one of their own number, the Venerable Dreadnought Daenyathos, to seize control of the Imperial Fists' mobile fortress-monastery, the Phalanx, and spread the power of Chaos across the galaxy. Though the Chapter has ceased to exist, the Imperial Fists honour this Chapter's Astartes' final sacrifice in the defence of Mankind.
Space Sharks Marine
Space Sharks Livery2
Space Sharks The Space Sharks are a Loyalist Chapter of Space Marines of an unknown Founding whose origin remains unknown and who are the current guardians of the Endymion Cluster of worlds in the Maelstrom Zone of the Segmentum Ultima. The Endymion Cluster is the region once governed by the Mantis Warriors Chapter which the Space Sharks were granted following the Badab War as compensation for their losses. Before that conflict, the Space Sharks were a fleet-based Chapter. It is not entirely clear whether the Space Sharks are a separate Chapter or are the same group of Astartes as the recently returned Carcharodons Chapter that also took part in the Badab War. The fact that the Carcharodons referred to themselves as "Carcharodons Astra" or "Space Sharks" in High Gothic, increasingly points towards both Chapters being one and the same.
Space Wolves Scheme2
Space Wolves Livery
Space Wolves The Space Wolves are one of the original 20 First Founding Space Marine Legions, and were once led by their famed Primarch Leman Russ. The Space Wolves are renowned for their anti-authoritarian ways and their embrace of their homeworld Fenris' savage barbarian culture, as well as their extreme deviation from the Codex Astartes in their Chapter's organisation.

Spears of Olympus The Spears of Olympus were once a Loyalist Chapter of Space Marines of unknown origin and Founding. They were corrupted after entering the Eye of Terror in 321.M37 as part of the disastrous Abyssal Crusade. It is unknown what they endured during their sojourn into the Eye, but by the time they made their way back into realspace, they had become the warband of Chaos Space Marines known as the Bloodlords.
Star Dragons Scheme
Star Dragons SP
Star Dragons The Star Dragons are a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding and origin. The Chapter homeworld of the Star Dragons is the planet Draconith. Currently, the Star Dragons have joined with the Blood Swords Chapter to travel the wastes of space near the Eye of Terror in a joint containment fleet designated Containment Fleet Kappa. For centuries these two Chapters had frequently joined forces when a given situation demanded it. The close proximity of their homeworlds of Jaggafall and Draconith had given them great reason to remain cordial and closely allied. Sometime in its recent history the Blood Swords Chapter was torn from its homeworld. This act of shame resulted in the Chapter undertaking a Penitent Crusade in order to redeem themselves in the eyes of the Emperor of Mankind. In the wake of this act of shame, the Star Dragons moved to support their long time allies.

Star Phantoms Astartes2
Star Phantoms Livery
Star Phantoms The Star Phantoms are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of the 23rd Founding, the so-called "Sentinel" Founding, created in the early 38th Millennium from an unknown origin. During this tumultuous period of history, the Star Phantoms were one of several Chapters whose mission was to take and hold various xenos-contested regions on the very borders of the Emperor’s domains. They took part in the final days of the Badab War and the final assault upon the Renegade Astral Claws' Chapter homeworld of Badab Primaris, helping bring the war to a successful conclusion.

Steel Cobras The Steel Cobras were a formerly Loyalist Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes whose blasphemous worship of the Emperor of Mankind as an animal totem prompted a puritanical Crusade against them by the Ecclesiarchy, led by a particularly bombastic Cardinal. Faced with such an assault by the Imperium, the Steel Cobras turned to the service of Chaos to gain the power needed to defend themselves. They are known to have established a base of operations deep beneath the ammonia seas of the frigid world of Tukaroe VII. Although the Imperium is aware of these Renegades' existence, nothing short of an invasion by an entire Loyalist Space Marine Chapter is considered likely to dislodge them from their fortified seabed bunkers. The only other option is to perform an Exterminatus on the planet, a fate that may still befall Tukaroe VII should the Adeptus Astartes refuse to assault their wayward kin.
Steel Confessors Scheme
Stee Confessors SP
Steel Confessors The Steel Confessors are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter secretly Founded in the 36th Millennium during the 19th Founding by the Adeptus Mechanicus for its own use from the gene-seed of the Iron Hands. After their discovery by the Inquisition, the Steel Confessors were forced to become an independent Chapter, but they still maintain unusually close ties with the Mechanicus of Mars. They recently successfully defended their homeworld, the Forge World of Kalevala, from an attack by the Tyranids of Hive Fleet Leviathan, though at great cost to the Chapter.

Storm Callers SP
Storm Callers The Storm Callers is a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown origin and Founding. Nothing else is currently known about them in Imperial records other than that portions of the Chapter were corrupted by Chaos during the Storm Callers advance into the Taninim Expanse, a civil war was fought within the ranks of the Chapter and the Loyalists emerged triumphant, purging the Traitors from their midst.
Storm Falcons Astartes
Storm Falcons SP
Storm Falcons The Storm Falcons are a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter of unknown origin and Founding. Virtually nothing is known about this obscure Chapter within the official Imperial archives, except the name of the Chapter' homeworld of Talon located in the Segmentum Ultima in the Hodur Sector. In 997.M41, Hive Fleet Leviathan encroached into Imperial space. The Tyranids, under the direction of the legendary synapse creature known as the Swarmlord, orchestrated multiple planetary invasions. In the span of only four months, the Swarmlord oversaw the absorption of 24 worlds, including the Storm Falcons' Chapter homeworld of Talon.
Storm Giants Scheme
Storm Giants SP
Storm Giants The Storm Giants are a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Chapter of Space Marines created during the 26th Founding in 738.M41. Their origins remain unknown, though many suspect that they are a Successor Chapter of the Salamanders of Nocturne. The Storm Giants are primarily a Fleet-based Chapter, preferring to meet any threats to the Imperium of Mankind on their own terms. They also do not want to be tied down to any one world, having to defend a fortress-monastery in case they are ever attacked, as has happened to to many other Space Marine Chapters. As a Fleet-based Chapter, the Storm Giants can stay mobile while avoiding those that would bring ill fortune upon their Chapter.
Storm Hawks Marine
Storm Hawks Livery
Storm Hawks The Storm Hawks are a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter and rare Successor Chapter of the Raven Guard. Their exact founding date is unknown but the Storm Hawks are thought to be related to the Raven Guard through a later Founding. Nothing else is known about this Chapter in current Imperial record.

Storm Wardens The Storm Wardens are a Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding and origin, based on the Forbidden World of Sacris in the Calixis Sector of the Segmentum Obscurus. Their entire 1st Company and Chapter Master Owin Glandwyr were placed into stasis within a sealed portion of the Chapter's fortress-monastery on Sacris following the Nemesis Incident of 945.M36. Furthermore, the Chapter homeworld of Sacris was forbidden to have any contact with the rest of the Imperium by the Inquisition. The reason for these steps remain unknown.
Storm Warriors

Storm Warriors The Storm Warriors are a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter of unknown origin and Founding. It appears that they are a late Founding Chapter. However, beyond this, almost nothing is known about the Storm Warriors in current Imperial records.

Templars of Blood The Templars of Blood is a Loyalist Successor Chapter to the venerable Blood Angels, created during an unknown Founding. Like their progenitor Chapter, these sons of the Primarch Sanguinius take pride in their ability to meet the foe head-on, although this is where the similarities between the Chapters end. The Astartes of the Templars of Blood are known to suffer from the Flaw of Sanguinius known as the Black Rage at a much reduced rate compared to the Blood Angels or their other Successor Chapters. This reason for this is unknown, though some suspect the Chapter has bought this boon through dark and secretive means.

Terror Tigers The Terror Tigers are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding and origin. Almost nothing is known about this Chapter in current Imperial records. Sometime in the 41st</spu> Millennium, the Terror Tigers lost one quarter of their Chapter's strength when a mutant warlord assaulted their homeworld, after which their Chapter Master summarily ordered his own execution as punishment. Later on, an exploration team of Terror Tigers rediscovered the lost Feral World of Hannibal, intervening in an Eldar attempt to reclaim the world as their own. The team dramatically came to the primitive human natives' rescue from the hands of the deceitful xenos.

Thunder Barons The Thunder Barons are a Renegade Chapter of Chaos Space Marines of unknown origin. Formerly a Loyalist Chapter of Astartes, they eventually spat on their oaths to the Emperor of Mankind and instead swore their allegiance to the Chaos Gods, and to the Blood God Khorne in particular. Since their fall to Chaos, the Thunder Barons have become obsessed with looking for amulets and artefacts of arcane power that will enhance their abilities in combat -- and provide more victims for the Blood God's pleasure.
Tiger Claws Astartes
Tiger Claws Badge
Tiger Claws he Tiger Claws were a former Loyalist Space Marine Chapter descended from the Astral Claws Chapter. Declared destroyed over fourteen centuries earlier and effectively a dead Chapter, a lone Strike Cruiser reappeared after having been trapped in the Warp and subjected to severe time distortion. Their world having been rendered lifeless and their Chapter an all forgotten legend, the acting Chapter Master travelled to Holy Terra in an attempt to petition for the release of their Chapter's gene-seed in an effort to rebuild their lost Chapter. But subsequently the Tiger Claws envoy disappeared without trace while awaiting to petition their position and was summarily dismissed. It was later found in 908.M41 during the conflict known as the Badab War that the Astral Claws Chapter Master Lufgt Huron had in fact deliberately withheld his Chapter's gene-seed, not to replenish the Chapter's own losses, but at first in order to help save their near extinct kin, the Tiger Claws Chapter. The last remnants of which had sought sanctuary with them in secret. When the Astral Claws were defeated, 200 of their wretched kind managed to escape, fleeing into the Warp Storm known as the Maelstrom. It is possible that some of the Astral Claws brethren were in fact Tiger Claws, and now survive among the renegade warband known as the Red Corsairs.

Ultramarines The Ultramarines are considered one of the strongest and most honoured of all the Space Marine Chapters in the Imperium of Man, and were responsible for almost single-handedly holding the Imperium together after the Horus Heresy. Highly disciplined and courageous warriors, the Ultramarines have remained true to the teachings of their Primarch Roboute Guilliman for 10,000 standard years. The Ultramarines were originally the XIIIth Space Marine Legion before the reforms and the introduction of the Codex Astartes that initiated the Second Founding and reshaped the Imperium after the Heresy on the orders of Guilliman himself.

Valedictors The Valedictors are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding and origin. Almost nothing is known about this Chapter in the Imperial records. The Valedictors were originally portrayed as a First Founding Legion which saw action on the Eastern Fringe of the Imperium against Orks, Eldar, and Traitors during the Horus Heresy. They were described in detail in two Epic articles in White Dwarf #126 and #136, (circa 1990-91). The status of the Valedictors changed in White Dwarf #235, where they are said to be of a "later Founding," (post-Second Founding). Therefore, the Valedictors are no longer considered a First Founding Legion.

In a bitter last stand, both Loyalist Chapters were utterly destroyed, their skulls taken by the ancient Daemon Prince Doombreed, whose existence preceded that of the Imperium itself, to be mounted upon the mighty Skull Throne of the Blood God.

Chapter Master Konvak Lann revealed to Inquisitorial investigators what they had endured, and that the supposed Saint Bastillius, was a false idol, guilty of sending innocents into the jaws of damnation in the service of the Dark Gods. The Vorpal Swords led the other survivors, blazing with righteous anger, to penetrate the defences of Basillius' palace. They found the unaccountably ancient saint and finally revealed Basillius' true nature as an apostle of Chaos.

Unlike other Astartes Chapters, they are unusual in that they maintain two Chapter Masters simultaneously -- one leading the Chapter to war as battlemaster, the other as the Proconsul of Sabbatine and its vassal star system, overseeing the defence of the Chapter's homworld and commanding a standing force ready at a moment's notice to respond to incursions through the Cadian Gate.

Bearing the ritual scars of bravery, these fierce warriors fight with all the tribal savagery that define the fierce steppe nomads of their homeworld Mundus Planus, bringing swift death to all of the enemies of the Imperium.
