The Corpsemakers is a warband or vectorium of the Death Guard Traitor Legion. The Corpsemakers see the destruction of the Imperium's grandest strongholds as their profane duty. Burrowing into the bedrock of enemy bastions like maggots through flesh, they undermine and corrupt the foundations so that the entire structure soon falls.
The Corpsemakers' Power Armour is the same as that of the Death Guard, composed of decayed and cracked plates of ceramite in sickly yellow with pale copper trim. The Corpsemakers' Chaos Space Marines, like those of the Death Guard, often wear grotesquely warped suits of antique Mark III Iron Power Armour.
The Corpsemakers warband badge is usually a modified version of the standard Mark of Nurgle, similar to that used by the rest of the Death Guard.
