Adeptus Astartes Icon

Icon of the Adeptus Astartes

The Space Marines or Adeptus Astartes are foremost amongst the defenders of Humanity, the greatest of the Emperor of Mankind's warriors, created from the genetic material of His gene-sons, the primarchs. They are barely Human at all, but transhuman; having been made superior in all respects to a normal man by a harsh regime of genetic modification, psycho-conditioning and rigorous training.

Space Marines are untouched by plague or any natural disease and can suffer wounds that would kill a lesser being several times over, and live to fight again. Clad in ancient power armour and wielding the most potent weapons known to Mankind, the Space Marines are terrifying foes and their devotion to the Emperor and the Imperium of Man is unyielding. They are the God-Emperor's Angels of Death, and they know no fear.

Once composing the great armies known as the Space Marine Legions, the Astartes were led by their primarchs on the Great Crusade that reunited all of the Human-settled galaxy in the late 30th Millennium. After the interstellar civil war known as the Horus Heresy erupted, pitting the Legions against one another, they were divided up into the smaller formations known as Chapters to make the betrayal of any one unit less deadly than that of an entire Legion.

Once tasked with serving as the Imperium's primary military force, today that function is largely left to the armies of the Astra Militarum, the Imperial Guard. Instead, the Space Marines now serve as planetary assault specialists and special operations troops for the Imperium, the ultimate force multipliers. Even a single company of 100 Astartes can turn the tide of conflict for an entire world.
