Overview

The Skulltakers' origin as the loyalist Space Marine Chapter the Berserkers of Kharadon was short-lived. During the period of 153.M34 to 184.M39 the Imperium lost any contact and it was somewhere during these five millennia that the Marines turned to Chaos, and rechristened themselves the Skulltakers.[3]

The Skulltakers participated in the Siege of Vraks in M41.[1b][2c] In the latter stages of the siege, they absorbed the Berserkers of Skallathrax warband into their ranks and struck an alliance with The Sanctified, thus making the followers of Khorne the dominating force among the defenders of Vraks.[2c]
