History

The Flawless Host was originally known as the Shining Blades. From a gene-seed once considered free from taint, they were known for their purity and rigid mental training. Their reputation and string of victories produced a great hubris, believing they could never be defeated. This led to the Berillia Massacre in 498.M34, in which they massacred all they came across in a frenzy of indignation after their magnificence was supposedly questioned. Becoming overwhelmed by Slaanesh and renaming themselves the Flawless Host, they have been a plague to the Imperium ever since.[3]

The Flawless Host is known to have taken part in the 5th Black Crusade. In 006.M40, the Flawless invaded the world of Vilidad Prime after condemning a lack of beauty among its populace.[7]

Previous Editions

After their introduction in Codex: Chaos Space Marines (4th Edition), the Flawless Host were speculated to be an offshoot of the Emperor's Children Traitor Legion, because of the resemblance of their armour and their shared devotion to Slaanesh. However, the 6th Edition Codex fills in their prior history, and confirms that they are a Renegade Chapter.

A warband of Emperor's Children assaulted a unnamed Imperial world as part of a larger army, The Incarnadine Host. The detachment of Emperor's Children referred to themselves as the Flawless Host. However millenia of raiding, defeat, bitterness and bloodshed had reduced them to only five Marines. Before the last Imperial bastion was destroyed, in-fighting saw all but one of the Flawless Host killed. The survivor, a disfigured Apothecary named Le'Furion took the bodies of his fallen brothers and planned on using Dark Eldar technology to create a new body for himself out of the corpses. The Imperial bastion fell soon after to the World Eaters warband, the Blood Hounds. [4]
