The Rampagers is a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter and a Second Founding Successor Chapter of the White Scars.

Like their progenitors, the Rampagers make use of ritual facial scarring to denote both the rank and achievements of Astartes in the Chapter.

These scars are applied during a long, sacred Chapter ceremony called "the Blooding." The blood drawn from the faces of the Space Marines during this ritual is then mixed with the drinks served during the feast that always follows the completion of the ceremony.

The Rampagers are in the habit of claiming Feral Worlds as fresh recruiting grounds in the wake of conquest, providing the planet's populace test negative for any forms of spiritual or physical corruption.
