Dark Compliance (Horus Heresy)

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum

Dark Compliances were Warmaster Horus' version of the Imperium's Compliances, which his forces conducted on Imperial worlds, during the Horus Heresy.[1]


This was done by cowing them into the Warmaster's subservience, by threatening the worlds with Horus' might[1]. Some would do so willingly afterwards[2] and others accepted a Dark Compliance, when mass executions were carried out upon them. These compliant worlds were then seeded with Overseer Cadres, who enforced the Warmaster's tithes for his war effort against the Imperium[1]. Any world that resisted was invaded and made to submit to a Dark Compliance or was outright destroyed by Horus' hordes.[2]
