Symbol of the Host of Blades[1]

The Host of Blades was one of the Hosts of the First Legion of the Legiones Astartes.[1]

The core of the Legion as its numbers grew, this Host were infantry cohorts that formed the ranks and held against enemy assault. They were masters of the close order infantry tactics that were the crux of the early Legiones Astartes, formed around the primarcy of Tactical Squads and the principal agent in the development of the first volumes of the Principia Bellicosa.[1]

In time, the Host would be reorganized into the six Wings of the Hexagrammaton.[1]
