The Lords of Decay are a Chaos Space Marine warband dedicated to the Chaos God Nurgle.


Formerly a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter known as the Lances of Pteros, they were one of the thirty Chapters sentenced to the Abyssal Crusade on the orders of Saint Basillius.[4] The Lords of Decay are a large Death Guard sub-faction. They have been encountered by Imperial forces on multiple occasions, including during the Siege of Vraks. They are stated as having been formerly led by the Primarch Mortarion.[2][Conflicting sources]

They are currently being pursued by Imperial forces in the Mentieth Sector.[1]

Conflicting sources

  • According to one source, the Lords of Decay are a Death Guard warband.[2] However, another source lists them as a corrupted Loyalist Space Marine Chapter.[4] It is possible that they were a corrupted Chapter that later allied themselves with the Death Guard or were subjugated and absorbed by the Traitor Legion. Alternatively, there could be multiple warbands with the same name.
