Chaos Knight Household Guards[5]

Knight Household Guards[1a], or also known as Militias[2b], are the warrior troops of Knight Houses and Chaos Knight Houses.[3a][3b]


Raised from a Knight World's population[1a] or from allied Forge Worlds[2a][4], Household Guards aid in defending their Knight Houses' Homeworlds[1a][2a] and can also accompany them into battle. Some Knight Houses are capable of fielding large numbers of Household Guard formations, which go by various names[3a][3b]. High Kings[4] and Barons[1b] can have their own personal Household Guard, which can result in their warriors having different uniforms and weaponry, than those who serve the entire Knight House.[1b][4]
