The Warp Gheists are one of the many exiled and estranged thrallbands of Chaos Space Marines dedicated to the Chaos God Tzeentch that was originally formed by members of various minor sects of the Thousand Sons Traitor Legion. These sects were exiled by their Daemon Primarch Magnus the Red following the casting of the disastrous sorcerous ritual known as the Rubric of Ahriman. The Sorcerer at the thrallband's heart, the Exile Magister Nezchad Aratos, enacted a revivification ritual that restored his brethren's physical forms -- but only as far as their skeletons. He died in the process, leaving his kin to wander the galaxy.
The Warp Gheists thrallband's colours are azure trimmed in gold. The white banding on the battle-plate of the Warp Gheists represents the undead bones contained within their Power Armour.
Warband Badge Edit
The Warp Gheists thrallband's sigil is a yellow-coloured Mark of Tzeentch centred upon a field of azure and trimmed in gold.
