During the 13th Black Crusade, Chapter Master Maxim Absolon originally deployed nine companies (leaving only one Reserve Company)[1][3] according to Supreme Commander Logan Grimnar's deployment plan, resulting in the Chapter being scattered across several warzones.[4] However after the Chapter Master's Thunderhawk was shot down (though the chapter remains hopeful that Absolon may still be alive) Captain Raoul took command and now deploys the Chapter according to his own advisors and not Grimnar's battle plans.[4]


Their power armour is black with red arms and shoulder pads; their chapter badge is a black skull with spikes radiating from the top.[5b]
