The Inceptors are a Second Founding Space Marine Chapter descended from the Ultramarines.[1]


Main article: Euxcine Incident

The Inceptors fought during the Macharian Crusade, but during the subsequent Macharian Heresy they came to blows with their former allies, the Doom Warriors over a matter of honour. In the Euxcine System they fought a long-running and protracted conflict under predetermined rules of engagement. They refused to end the conflict, and as a consequence the Minotaurs Chapter was dispatched to end it for them.[2]

The two Chapters were caught unprepared and, although the Doom Warriors were able to escape the system, the Inceptors were stranded on Euxcine and were systematically destroyed until fewer than a hundred Space Marines remained. They were forced to surrender. Many of the Chapter's relics, including their flagship - a Great Crusade-era assault ship - were captured by the Minotaurs. The Minotaurs were subsequently denounced across Ultramar and forbidden from entering its boundaries. Other Ultramarine-descended Chapters have also sworn vengeance against the Minotaurs.[2]
