The Sons of Antaeus are a Loyalist chapter of Space Marines who lead a very mysterious existence.
They are known to be particularly hardy and tough, being more impervious to damage than even other Space Marines. This is due to the Adeptus Mechanicus going crazy in adding all sorts of extra stuff to harden them up. Some whisper that their toughness is on par with the Death Guard Legion.
Perhaps due to this, they are notably not open to most Imperial authorities and avoid contact with them whenever they can. This is probably a smart choice, considering what happened to the other Cursed Founding Chapters.
Over a decade ago, these guys had their own rules in 3rd edition, found here (handily /tg/ updated for 6th edition)
The Sons are confirmed as being active as late as M41.9, so they're not doing as badly as some of the other cursed chapters. Also, while their toughness is often likened to Plague Marines, the process by which they were created bears more resemblance to Primaris Marines (made without Cawl's expertise) and could also explain their toughness.
