IF-Command-1

Part of an Imperial Fists Legion Command Squad

A Legion Command Squad was a tactical formation of the ancient Space Marine Legions used during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy eras in the late 30th and early 31st Millennia. The highly disciplined and worthy warriors of a Legion's Command Squad often accompanied Space Marine Commanders and Legion Champions serving as both bodyguards and Standard Bearers.

History

Apophis Command Squad

A Command Squad of the Thousand Sons Legion during the Great Crusade

In the ancient Legiones Astartes it was a common sight to see senior Astartes commanders and champions accompanied in battle by a squad of elite warriors that served both as a bodyguard for their commander and were entrusted to carry one of the Legion's great standards. On the battlefield this made them a rallying point for the Legion's troops. These chosen Space Marines had access to the finest wargear available to the Legion's rank and file and embodied the Legion's honour in war.
