Adharon's Reavers Marine
Adharon's Livery2
Adharon's Reavers Adharon's Reavers are a vicious warband of Chaos Space Marines who were once largely members of the Sons of Guilliman Chapter of Space Marines. This warband operates as a small renegade corsair group under the former Sons of Guilliman Captain Adharon. This particular Chaos Space Marines warband was first identified by the forces of the Imperium of Man during the Siege of Vraks in 813.M41 when they participated in the defence of that world from an Imperial invasion.
AlphaLegion3
Alpha Legion sp
Alpha Legion The Alpha Legion is the Chaos Space Marine Traitor Legion about whom the least is known. The Alpha Legion was once the XXth Legion of Astartes created during the First Founding by the Emperor of Mankind to carry out his Great Crusade to reunite all of humanity in a new Golden Age under his rule. They are experts in infiltration and their armies contain many Chaos Cultists in addition to regular Chaos Space Marines. The Alpha Legion's Primarch was named Alpharius, who was actually one of the identical twin Primarchs Alpharius Omegon, two brilliant and secretive sons of the Emperor, one of whom was reportedly later killed after the end of the Horus Heresy by Roboute Guilliman, the Primarch of the Ultramarines. Despite its seeming allegiance to Chaos, a closer scrutiny of the Alpha Legion's known history indicates that their seeming service to Chaos Undivided might actually be the greatest deception they have played upon the Imperium.
Angels of Ecstasy1
Angelsecstacyicon1
Angels of Ecstasy The Angels of Ecstasy are a Renegade Chapter of Chaos Space Marines devoted to the Chaos God Slaanesh who were once the Loyalist Space Marine Chapter called the Sons of Ulthunas. 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 as Traitor Marines, though their increasingly mutated appearance and Chapter colour scheme would indicate that this is firmly the case.

Angels of Flame The Angels of Flame were a formerly Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown origin or Founding. This Chapter only recently turned Renegade in 999.M41, when they were sent on an extended mission of reconquest to the rim of the galaxy near the Ghoul Stars. What occurred during their sojourn there is not recorded. But even now, Planetary Governors, Imperial Inquisitors and Imperial military commanders in the region wait with trepidation for the bloodshed that will surely follow when the Angels of Flame next make an appearance as the newest servants of the Dark Gods.

They are led by the vile and infamous Chaos Lord Necrosius, the self-proclaimed "Hand of Nurgle."

Astral Blades The Astral Blades were once a Loyalist Chapter of Space Marines of unknown origin and Founding. In 121.M37, the Astral Blades Chapter was led down the path to Chaos by their prideful Chapter Master, who had been possessed by the Daemon Etherak the Unrepentant. The Daemon's servants use sorcery to possess almost every battle-brother within the Chapter's subterranean fortress-monastery one by one, slaughtering those strong enough to resist. As the blood of the last of the fallen is still cooling, the possessed Space Marines plunder the Chapter's gene-seed stores and set off for the Eye of Terror. However, when their Battle Barge, Sword of Stars, reaches high orbit, the Grey Knights are waiting for them. In the furious battle that ensues Grey Knights Terminators teleport onto the bridge of the Battle Barge and banish Etherak back into the Warp in the midst of a furious melee. Broken in body and spirit, the Chapter Master of the Astral Blades accepts the Emperor's mercy delivered at the hands of his "saviours."
Avenging Sons Marine
Avenging Sons Shoulder Pad
Avenging Sons (3rd Company) During the Helmabad Rebellion sometime in the 41st Millennium, Avenging Sons' Captain Gessart and his 3rd Company turned Renegade whilst fighting in the civil war on Helmabad against a force of Chaos Cultists, who had stirred up a rebellion against the Emperor, to save their own lives when the course of the battle went against them. Killing their Chaplain and those Loyalist Battle-Brothers who would not follow them, the Space Marines of the 3rd Company negotiated with the Traitors for safe passage to their Thunderhawk gunship in return for leaving the Planetary Governor undefended for the cultists to slay. After fleeing the planet, which had been struck by a Warp Storm, the 3rd Company painted over their Chapter badges and other Imperial symbols and set course for the Eye of Terror. It should be noted that Captain Gessart intended to continue fighting for the good of humanity, yet could not remain as part of the Avenging Sons Chapter after he had allowed the elimination of those Space Marines who had refused to abandon the world of Helmabad to Chaos to save their own lives.

Baleful Eye The Baleful Eye is a Chaos Space Marine warband that has risen to prominence within the Screaming Vortex within the Calixis Sector. These piratical raiders are known for ambushing their prey and preferring rapid and brutal boarding actions. Their ships are adorned with cruel spikes and trophies of past conquests, while the red and midnight blue hull prominently displays images of a great glaring yellow eye. The raiders never leave any survivors and their victims' corpses are said to have looks of stark terror on their faces. What they witnessed can only be speculated as every video log, pic-catcher, and eyeball is removed from the target vessel.

Beasts of Annihilation The Beasts of Annihilation were once a Loyalist Chapter of Space Marines known as the Annhilators. After the unremitting violence of the xenocidal Quietus Campaign, the Annhilators Chapter finally succumbed to blood psychosis. Those of the Chapter still able to act rationally gathered at their fortress-monastery in the hope of finding absolution. Instead of redeeming their sins, however, their corrupted Chaplains lead them in an ancient ritual, leaving their souls wide open to daemonic influence. Every member of the Chapter was possessed over the course of a single moonlit night, shifting forms and devolving into armoured half-Daemon monstrosities. Calling themselves the Beasts of Annihilation, the Possessed Chaos Space Marines went to war again, though this time it was the Imperium that felt their wrath.
Berserkers of Skallathrax Marine

Black Skull The Black Skull is a Renegade Warband of Chaos Space Marines of unknown origins and Founding. When the Crimson Sabres Chapter began their descent into madness, they were determined to sell themselves dearly, and so, they turned to the Eye of Terror where they planned to die fighting the enemies of Mankind and so reclaim their honour. The planet known as Nebulon was one of the outermost of the planets ringing the Eye of Terror, a world only occasionally veiled within that region. Onto that bleak orb swept the Crimson Sabres like avenging angels. In a twisted land of derelict hives the red-armoured Space Marines hunted, gunned down any quarry they could find. None could stand before them -- none, that is, until the Black Skull renegades emerged out of the stygian depths of the underhive. The two forces clashed, both nigh on Chapter strength, however, only the core of the Black Skull were Space Marines, comprised of turncoats from many disparate Chapters united by their self-serving nature. The remainder of their number were comprised of Chaos Cultists. The Crimson Sabres fought as one unifying force, and were able to overcome the renegade warband.

Bloodblessed The Bloodblessed are a Khorne Daemonkin host that makes great use of Chaos Spawn. These fanatics round up great hordes of the mutated beasts, believing them to be the true form that Khorne desires for mortal man. Not only do the Bloodblessed accord Chaos Spawn the status of holy warriors but, stranger still, their own Champions aspire not to ascension but to Spawndom. Thus what is seen by most as a dire punishment for failure has become, to the Bloodblessed, the ultimate reward.

Blood Disciples Scheme2
Blood Disciples Livery
Blood Disciples The Blood Disciples are a warband of Chaos Space Marines who were once the 8th Company of the Emperor's Wolves Chapter of Loyalist Space Marines. During a mission, the 8th Company made a Warp Jump that proved unsuccessful, causing them to be come lost in the Immaterium for decades. During this time the 8th Company was corrupted by Chaos and emerged back into realspace decades later as the vicious warband of Chaos Space Marines known as the Blood Disciples. Because the 8th Company of the Emperor's Wolves had oiginaly been designated as one of that Chapter's assault companies, the Blood Disciples possess an unusually large number of Chaos Raptors, the Chaos Space Marines' equivalents of Assault Marines. Due to their chosen name, the warband is very likely dedicated to the service of the Blood God Khorne, but this is not confirmed and the Blood Disciples might also serve Chaos Undivided. Nothing else is known about the warband in Imperial archives.
Blood Gorgons Colour Scheme
No pict-file found.
Blood Gorgons The Blood Gorgons are a Renegade Chapter of Chaos Space Marines that primarily raids the Baston Sector of Imperial space. Formerly a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter, the Blood Gorgons were created during the 21st Founding, known as the "Cursed Founding," sometime in the 36th Millennium shortly before the start of the Age of Apostasy. Led by their Chapter Master and later Chaos Lord Gammadin, who had been the Blood Gorgons' leader from the time of their Founding until the day when the Imperium declared them Renegade and Excommunicate Traitoris, a mere six decades later, the Chapter ultimately fled into the Eye of Terror after swearing themselves to the service of Chaos. They are an unusual Chapter of Chaos Space Marines, as every Astartes is ritually bonded to another through the use of a Chaotic ritual. The Blood Gorgons, who value their freedom and independence above all else, refuse to swear allegiance to any patron Chaos God, preferring to serve Chaos in general in the form of Chaos Undivided.

Brazen Beasts Chaos Marine 1
Brazen Beasts Icon
Brazen Beasts The Brazen Beasts are an infamous Khornate warband of Khorne Daemonkin that prey upon the followers of the other Chaos Gods. They are known for utilising heavily armoured Daemon Engines to lead their berserker assaults, leaving behind nothing but mangled corpses and blazing devastation. Chief amongst these infernal engines is a mighty Lord of Skulls, a towering war-idol that the Brazen Beasts worship as the Caged God. It is the frenzied visions of this abomination that guide the Brazen Beasts through the void, and lead them to fresh victims for the slaughter.
BL Bringers of Decay
Bringers of Decay SP
Bringers of Decay The Bringers of Decay are a special formation of Chaos Space Marines found within the Black Legion who are wholly dedicated to the service of the Chaos God Nurgle. The Plague God has a strong following within the Black Legion; his putrid touch is evident throughout the ranks of its warriors. Under the dominance of the Chosen of Abaddon lieutenant Skyrak Slaughterborn, the current Lord Corruptor, the Nurglites have converted many to their cause. In battle, the Bringers of Decay are Abaddon's plague carriers and heralds of contagion, often appearing before other warbands of the Legion on the field to sow infection and sickness. This could also be why many other warbands of the Black Legion will have little to do with the Bringers of Decay, repelled by the blessings of the Plague God they bear, and the pervasive stench that follows them.

Bros of Dust SP
Brotherhood of Dust The Brotherhood of Dust was a powerful Chaos Space Marine Warband that consisted primarily of powerful exiled Thousand Sons Chaos Sorcerers founded by Amon, the former Captain of the 9th Fellowship, and Equerry of Primarch Magnus the Red. He also gathered voidships, other Chaos Space Marines, hundreds of Rubricae and a number of apprentices. It was Amon's intent to see the suffering of his Legion ended, for he would undo the fell magic of the Rubric of Ahriman that had doomed his former Battle-Brothers to their unlife, so that he could release their tortured souls. In order to accomplish this, he hunted the hellish realms of the Eye of Terror, to find the wayward former First Captain Ahzek Ahriman. He eventually confronted his former friend in an epic sorcerous duel, but was ultimately defeated. Ahriman then absorbed the fallen sorcerer's power and took Amon's battle-plate, and assumed the mantle of leadership over the Brotherhood of Dust as his own.

Corrupted beyond recognition, these once-proud warriors are sworn to the service of the Dark Gods, and allow the daemons of the Warp to possess their superhuman Astartes bodies. As a result, this warband fields an unusually large number of Possessed Chaos Space Marine squads. The Brothers of Livos see the Possessed as superior to normal Chaos Space Marines and pledge themselves fully to the service of Chaos, becoming willing hosts to these immaterial creatures.

Each had their own reasons for abandoning their villainous master and fleeing to the Screaming Vortex, yet all burn with an unquenchable desire to march to war beneath banners of hate and destruction. Their centuries of experience, ferocious tempers, and predilection towards daemonic possession and mental instability make them a truly menacing foe.

Company of Misery The Company of Misery is a warband of Chaos Space Marines of unknown allegiance. Since the degradation of their gene-seed stocks in the 32nd Millennium, the formerly Loyalist Chapter known as the Desolate Brotherhood found themselves assigned to impossibly dangerous and undesirable duties, including assaults on Death Worlds, Space Hulks and quarantine zones. Each time the Brotherhood believed they had won a reprieve, they were sent on an even more hazardous mission, plunging them into a spiral of dissolution and despair. After a catastrophe in the acid swamps of the world of Misery, the Chapter took a new name and left their duties behind, forever becoming sworn enemies of the Imperium and the illusion of hope. They were first encountered by Imperial forces on the world of Maddean IV in the 37th Millennium.

Company of the Shadow The Company of the Shadow is a Renegade Chapter of Chaos Space Marines that were a formerly Loyalist Space Marine Chapter known as the Death Falcons that were Founded during the dawn of the 41st Millennium. They hailed from the night-shrouded world of Bastonbeil, which lay within the far reaches of the Eastern Fringe at the very limits of the Astronomican. From the underhive of Bastonbeil's capital city of the Shadowhive, which also served as the Chapter's fortress-monastery, awoke an ancient and terrible creature of darkness which fed upon the souls of the living. Millions of souls were devoured by this mysterious entity, leaving only mindless zombies in its wake. Responding in force, the Death Falcons deployed the entire strength of their Chapter to bring their unfettered wrath down upon this force of evil, but after three months what emerged from the pits of blackness beneath the Shadowhive was no longer recognizable as the once-noble Death Falcons. They were now the Company of Shadow.

During their sojourn into the Eye, the Sentinels found signs of Chaos Space Marine infestation and made planetfall on the Daemon World of Oliensis. The Sentinels hunted down and exterminated the goat-headed hedonists, but the cacophony of battle stirred Slaaneshi Noise Marines and soon the battle was joined. The raging conflict stirred the living planet itself, which swallowed the combatants into a large chasm. By the time they reemerged the Sentinels were no longer recognisable, having been transformed into the Corpus Brethren.

Crimson Slaughter he Crimson Slaughter is a Renegade warband of Chaos Space Marines dedicated to Chaos Undivided. Originally they were known as the Crimson Sabres, a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter that may have belonged to the mysterious 13th Founding, also known as the "Dark Founding," which occurred sometime between the 35th and 36th Millennia. Problems culminated with the genocidal war on Umidia. This world proved to be the fulcrum of change for the Crimson Sabres. The fighting there proved so intense that it changed the Chapter, as they found themselves cursed by the Chaos God Khorne, forever haunted by the fell voices of the slain even after the combat had ended. They attempted to cleanse themselves and silence the voices howling in their minds by assaulting their future foes with an almost blatant disregard for honour or mercy. As a result they soon found themselves declared Excommunicate Traitoris.

Death Falcons The Death Falcons were a formerly Loyalist Space Marine Chatper that hailed from the night-shrouded world of Bastonbeil, which lay within the far reaches of the Eastern Fringe at the very limits of the Astronomican. While the Chapter Master was away at the Conclave of Gathalamor, renewing his oaths of allegiance to the Emperor of Mankind, Bastonbeil fell. An ancient and terrible creature of darkness awoke beneath their fortress-monastery and began to feed upon the souls of the living. Responding in force, the Death Falcons deployed the entire strength of their Chapter to bring their unfettered wrath down upon this force of evil. It is unknown what took place within the dark depths of the Underhive, but after three months what emerged from the pits of blackness beneath the Shadowhive was no longer recognizable as the once-noble Death Falcons, they had become the Chaos-corrupted Company of Shadow.

Death Guard sp
Death Guard The Death Guard are one of the Traitor Legions of Chaos Space Marines. They worship and devote themselves exclusively to the Chaos God Nurgle and as a result of his mutational "gifts" they have become Plague Marines; Astartes who are eternally rotting away within their Power Armour and infected with every known form of disease and decay but who are immune to all pain or minor injury. When the XIVth Legion was first raised on Terra by the Emperor, its Astartes were known as the Dusk Raiders. After the XIVth Legion was reunited with its Primarch Mortarion on the world of Barbarus, he renamed the Legion the Death Guard.

During their sojourn into the Eye, they landed upon an ancient Eldar Crone World and were captured by xenos Kabalites. After enduring horrific torture at the hands of their Dark Eldar captors the remains of the Brothers of the Anvil slaughtered their way back into realspace, unrecognisable as a formerly loyal Chapter.

Death Shadows The Death Shadows was a Renegade Chapter of Chaos Space Marines who were once a Loyalist Chapter of Astartes known as the Lionguard before they were corrupted in the 37th Millennium during their participation in the Abyssal Crusade. They were known to specialise in the use of sabotage and terror tactics against their foes. In the late 41st Millennium, the Death Shadows withdrew to the Fortress World of Sybari after a disastrous campaign against the Ultramarines. Whilst in the planning stages of a retaliatory strike against their hated Loyalist foes, a tendril of Hive Fleet Behemoth invaded the Sybari System and consumed the planet. The Warband took a heavy toll on the aliens, but despite that, the Warband was annihilated within an a hour.

DragonWarriors2
Dragon Warriors Livery
Dragon Warriors The Dragon Warriors are a warband of Chaos Space Marines. The Dragon Warriors are specialists in short-range firefights and melee combat. They also prefer the use of melta and flamer weapons. The Dragon Warriors are dedicated to the destruction of both the Salamanders Chapter and their homeworld of Nocturne and have long considered the Salamanders to be their greatest foes. The Dragon Warriors are led by the Chaos Sorcerer and former Salamander Librarian Nihilan, who forged the warband from the Chaos Space Marines who had followed his former master and tutor Vai'tan Ushorak, a former Chaplain of the Black Dragons Chapter before he became corrupted by Chaos. Ushorak was slain by the Salamanders on the Cemetery World of Moribar, and Nihilan became obsessed with gaining revenge against the Salamanders and finding some means of resurrecting his old mentor.
Dusk Raiders Marine
Dusk Raiders Livery
Dusk Raiders The Dusk Raiders were the XIVth Space Marine Legion raised by the Emperor of Mankind on Terra at the dawn of the Great Crusade in the 31st Millennium. After the Emperor discovered the Dusk Raiders' Primarch Mortarion on the poisonous world of Barbarus, and gave him command of the XIVth Legion, Mortarion changed the name of the Legion to the Death Guard after the name of the military force he had raised on his homeworld of Barbarus to overthrow the rule of that Feral World's necromantic warlords.

Emissaries of Wasting Death The Emissaries of Wasting Death are a notorious Chaos Warband dedicated to the Plague God, Nurgle. The Plague Marines of the Wasting Death are particularly feared among the many denizens of the Screaming Vortex, for their very presence brings with it untold suffering and privation. Wherever they tread the ground shrivels and cracks beneath their feet, and even the heartiest and most resilient creatures shrivel and perish as they draw near. Contact with the malefic air of deprivation that surrounds these desiccated warriors irreparably scars those who survive, often manifesting in incessant pangs of unquenchable thirst and indescribable hunger that lasts for years after the dreadful encounter is a distant memory.
