Space Marine Forces (List)

From Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of the Space Marine Chapters, Renegade Space Marine forces and Chaos Marine Legions and warbands that have been named by Games Workshop in official texts, but does not include any "home grown" chapters.

After the Horus Heresy, the loyal Space Marine Legions were split into smaller Chapters of a thousand Space Marines each in order to prevent any one person from being able to control so many troops ever again. Over time, the number of chapters has grown, and is said to number around a thousand at the time of the 41st Millenium.

It should be noted that Traitor and Renegade forces may vary tremendously in size and composition compared to the Loyalist Chapters - the original Traitor Legions may comprise many thousands of troops, whilst some Chaos Warbands may only have a hundred or so members.

It should also be noted that some Chapters have changed their names during their history and may be represented on this list more than once under different titles.

Lists of individual faction's forces can also be found here -
