Index Astartes: Heralds of Light



he Heralds of Light are steadfast defenders and servants of the Imperium. As members of the Astartes Praeses, they were created with the express purpose of guarding the regions surrounding the Eye of Terror, and have taken their task to heart. Where other Chapters are free to seek fame and glory, these unsung heroes have stood valiantly against the traitor hordes since the thirty-second millennium. Even now with the galaxy split in half and their homeworld in ruins, the Chapter keeps fighting and refuse to abandon hope.



'Let us light the way, Brothers!' - First Chapter Master Alcaeus Rex

On the first day of the thirty-second millennium, the historical third founding was initiated. Created from the genetic material of the old Legions, completely new Chapters would bolster the numbers of the overexerted Adeptus Astartes. Spurred by Abaddon the Despoiler Edited by Codex Grey

Insignium Astartes: Heralds of Light


'Friend or foe, let them all know - we carry His light for all to see.' - Reclusiarch Zuros

Organized closely along the lines set out by the Codex Astartes, the Heralds of Light use many of the most common heraldic conventions among Codex Adherent Chapters. But throughout the millennia the Heralds have forged their own heraldic traditions that set them apart from their brother Astartes. The most notable markings include the way they denote the different Companies. Each Company has its own honorific name and symbol, usually displayed on the left knee, often symbolizing the special duties of their Captains. Each Company and it's members might use their symbol in different ways, as in the case of the Flame Keepers of the Veteran Company. Several of the more zealous Flame Keepers, including Company Chaplain Zuros, have almost covered their entire armor in blue flames since the fall of their homeworld.
