The Knights of the Chalice is a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter comprised entirely of Primaris Space Marines, created from the lineage of the hard-pressed Blood Angels and raised during the Ultima Founding of 999.M41.
The Knights of the Chalice were first deployed during the battles of the Indomitus Crusade and are renowned for their aggressive orbital strikes, fielding large numbers of Inceptor Squads who drop from on high to scour beachheads clear of the foe.
Coupled with destabilising strikes by Reiver Squads, the Chapter plunges the enemy into confusion, allowing for swift planetary conquest.
The Knights of the Chalice primarily wear bright red Mark X Power Armour in honour of their parent Chapter, the Blood Angels, while the entire helm is black.
Like their progenitors, the Knights of the Chalice also utilise the same unique blood drop heraldry to designate company number, which is indicated on the right shoulder pauldron.
The left shoulder pauldron proudly displays the Chapter's iconography.
The heraldry on the right knee guard indicates squad designation.
The Knights of the Chalice's Chapter badge is a stylised black chalice centred on a field of bright red.
