Interemptors were troops of the Dreadwing of the Dark Angels during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy.
Even among the ranks of the Dreadwing the Interemptors were known as a grim breed dedicated to the singular purpose of utterly annihilating the enemy. When they attacked, they left behind no trace of their foe and neither took trophies or told tales of their victories. They were considered the Lion's ultimate sanction.
Interemptors wielded Plasma Burners, Missile Launchers loaded with Rad Missiles or Stasis Missiles, Plasma Incinerators, Chainswords, Phosphex Grenades, Krak Grenades, and Rad Grenades. Their radioactive weaponry was devastating, but degraded the warriors over time. Thus a Dreadwing Interemptor was only combat viable for a few decades before requiring bionic augmentation or entombment within a Dreadnought.
