The Butcherhorde is an infamous warband of World Eaters Chaos Space Marines.


Led by the infamous Khârn, the Butcherhorde was formed originally from the insane Berzerkers who followed The Betrayer. Over time as he has slaughtered his way across the Galaxy - from the Sundered Reach to Pandoric Colonies, the warband has grown to encompass all manners of Khornate devotees. These include ordinary Chaos Space Marines, Cultists, mutants, Daemon Princes, and Daemon Engines (including Brass Scorpions and Lords of Skulls).[1]

There is no force of World Eaters in the galaxy more dangerous than the Butcherhode, for each warrior strives to be more like Kharn than the last. They are utterly devoted to worship of Khorne and have fully embraced the madness of the Butcher's Nails. They charge into the fray without care for themselves, seeking only to spill blood for the blood god. They have slaughtered their way through Ork hordes, Tyranid swarms, Imperial Guard tank Regiments, Squat Kindreds, and even other World Eaters.[3]

Due to their reckless tactics and constant combat, casualties in the Butcherhode are catastrophic. Moreover, Kharn often butchers his own men during the heat of battle.[3]
