A Space Marine chapter from one of the later foundings, but it is unknown if they descend from a first or second founding chapter, or if they are successors of a successor (like, say, the Hands of the Emperor). They have no lore, but what they do have going for them is a unique mint choc-chip colour scheme, and a lot of artwork for a chapter this obscure and this small.

Campaigns[edit]

  • Aschen War - The Aschen sub-sector gets drowned in Chaos Cults and the Dark Hands and Exorcists are sent to deal with them. The Chapter and it's allies from the Sisters of Battle and Necromundan regiments engage the main enemy, while the more savvy Exorcists go after the Demon Prince that was behind the whole thing. In the end, the Exorcists manage to corner and banish the demon, ensuring the sub-sector returns into the Imperial fold.
  • Cleansing of Chinchare - A massive Hrud infestation was defeated by Terminators of the Dark Hands 1st company with support from Cadian regiments of the Imperial Guard. The timing of this purge averted a major Hrud migration according to the Ordo Xenos. This would only delay the inevitable, as all contact with the mining world was lost following Abaddon's 13th Black Crusade.
