Excommunicate Traitoris is the stamp applied to Space Marine Legions or Chapters that have betrayed the Imperium through heresy, mutation or any other act the Imperium deems unforgivable. Several forces have been deemed Excommunicate, such as the Traitor Legions, the Flame Falcons, the Relictors and the Soul Drinkers. They are also known as Renegade Space Marines.
This fate may also befall individuals whom commit similar acts of heresy.
