The Legio Audax (also known as the Ember Wolves) were a Traitor Titan Legion that sided with Horus during the Battle of Isstvan III.[1a] It was known for its close connection with the World Eaters, having served with them in the Great Crusade as part of the 13th Expeditionary Fleet. The legion consisted of at least 90 Warhound Scout Titans.[1b]

History

Before turning traitor the Legio Audax was originally from Mars, capital of the Mechanicum.[4] They were a small force comprising only Scout-class Titans that gained a savage and dangerous reputation much like their World Eater allies. This savagery soon evolved into loyalty to Angron over the distant Collegia Titanica. The Audax specialized in using small swift packs of up to five Warhounds to surround larger Titans, bringing them down with Ursus Claws.[1b] The Ursus Claws were always on the Titan's right weapon arm, whilst the Titans within each battle-pack mounted a variety of different primary weapons on their left arms for tactical variety.[4]

Later in the Heresy, Chaos-corrupted Titans of the Legio Audax appeared fighting alongside Daemons during the War Within the Webway.[3]

Though most of Legio Audax joined Horus' forces, a Loyalist faction of the Legio still fought for the Imperium. They called themselves the Hounds of Night and are known to have taken part in the Battle of Beta-Garmon.[8]
