The Endurance[2]

The Endurance was an Imperial Battleship that served as the flagship of Mortarion during the Great Crusade and subsequent Horus Heresy.


The Endurance led Death Guard operations at the Battle of Isstvan III and the Drop Site Massacre.[1][2] It later engaged the White Scars above Prospero[4] and Catallus.[5]

During the Heresy, the vessel was commanded by Ulfar.[5]

The Endurance would survive the Heresy and in the subsequent millenia, it became heavily corrupted by the power of Nurgle and even became home to a piece of the Chaos God's Garden. After the Thirteenth Black Crusade, the Battleship once again became Mortarion's flagship, when the Daemon Primarch invaded the Realm of Ultramar.[6]


According to another source, the Battle Barge Reaper's Scythe served as Mortarion's flagship, though this is stated to only have been the case "often".[3]
