Sons of Horus
The Sons of Horus, formerly known as the Luna Wolves, stand as a grim testament to the tragic fall of a once-loyal Space Marine Legion during the tumultuous era of the Horus Heresy. Under the charismatic leadership of the Primarch Horus Lupercal, the Luna Wolves earned a reputation for their martial prowess and loyalty. However, the corruption of Horus during the Horus Heresy marked a turning point, leading to their transformation into the Sons of Horus, an infamous Traitor Legion aligned with Chaos.
Sons of Horus tactics on the battlefield were deeply influenced by the brutal strategies devised during the Horus Heresy. As the Traitor Legions waged war against the Imperium, the Sons of Horus earned a reputation for their cunning and ruthless tactics that relied on cutting the heart out of the enemy force.
The extensive lore surrounding the Horus Heresy, chronicled in numerous novels, delves into the intricate details of the Sons of Horus. The Horus Heresy novels explore the complex narrative that unfolds within this dark chapter of Warhammer 40,000 history. These novels provide insights into the motivations, betrayals, and internal strife that defined the Sons of Horus during their descent into heresy.
The enigmatic Ezekyle Abaddon, also known as Abaddon the Despoiler, serves as a central figure in this narrative, leading the Sons of Horus into infamy as one of the most notorious Chaos Champions in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
The distinctive Sons of Horus colour scheme, marked by a striking sea green, became an iconic visual representation of their allegiance to Chaos. It’s one that can be recreated in many ways, check some of our interpretations out below!
