War Bearers Chapter Colour Scheme

The War Bearers are a Loyalist Chapter of Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marines of unknown Founding and origin. Nothing else is known about them in Imperial records.

Notable CampaignsEdit

  • The Siege of Lakadamon (953.M33) - The Sons of Guilliman, alongside several Tekarn armoured regiments are besieged in the defence of the Hive World of Lakadamon by the hordes of the Ork Warboss Vorhgad Bloodfang. Despite vastly overwhelming odds, the Chapter successfully holds the planet's defence for three years until the siege is broken by the combined forces of the War Bearers and the Night Reapers Chapters, fighting alongside a major taskforce from Battlefleet Tempestus to break the orbital blockade that encircles the beleaguered world.
  • Second Abonian Genocide (688-698.M40) - Inquisitor Halan Jentz of the Ordo Hereticus declares the entire population of the Abonian sub-sector diabolos inculcatus and gathers together a Crusade army that includes elements of the War Bearers, Red Hunters and Subjugators Chapters, as well as the Order of the Blue Robe and the Order of the Black Sepulchre of the Adepta Sororitas. The Crusade rages for a decade before the Inquisitor declares the sub-sector's crimes accounted for.

Chapter AppearanceEdit

Chapter ColoursEdit

The War Bearers wear olive-drab coloured Power Armour. The Aquila or Imperialis on the chest is silver in colour.
