Berserkers of Skallathrax
|Marine||Basic Data||Warband Symbol|
Their name refers to the world of Skalathrax, where the World Eaters Legion fragmented into individual warbands during the Battle of Skalathrax, following the Horus Heresy. It is believed that they were somehow connected to the notorious Khârn the Betrayer.
The warband took part in the Siege of Vraks, during which their leader was killed by rival Chaos Lord Zhufor in ritual combat. Accepting Zhufor as their new leader, the Berserkers of Skallathrax joined the ranks of Zhufor's own warband, the Skulltakers.
