Chaos Space Marines are the evil, Warp-twisted counterpart of Imperial Space Marines. The first Astartes – fully half of their total number – turned to Chaos cirka 10,000 years ago in a cataclysmic civil war, and more have followed since. The Chaos Space Marines featured in Winter Assault are from the Blood Legion of Khorne, a warband belonging to the World Eaters Legion.
