The Legio Damnatus ("Warped Dogs") was a Traitor Titan Legion of the Dark Mechanicum that repudiated its oaths to the Emperor of Mankind and followed the Warmaster Horus into the service of the Ruinous Powers during the Horus Heresy.

This Traitor Titan Legion met its fate during the Siege of Terra when its landing craft was destroyed while attempting to make planetfall during Horus' primary assault. The Legion was completely destroyed.

Legion History

Notable Campaigns

  • Siege of Terra (014.M31) - During the Siege of Terra when the Warmaster Horus ordered the troop transports of his fleet to make planetfall, the Renegades hoped to overwhelm the defenders by sheer weight of numbers. Unlike the Drop Pods that had carried the Traitor Marines in the initial assault wave, these vast bloated ships presented fine targets for the weapons of the defenders. Thus, the Battle of Terra began in earnest. Defence Lasers blasted many of the Renegade starships from the sky, sending thousands of tons of fused metal raining down onto the ground below. Crippled vessels crashed into buildings or were vaporized in flight by the lancing beams of the huge Terran defence batteries. The transport vessel of the Legio Damnatus was vaporized and that Legion's name passed into history.
