Ok Fluff isn't my strongpoint.
I'm after some fairly sound fluff to back up my army for the UK GT events next year. I have been modelling a Word bearers army with a animalistic/arctic theme.
I want to present them as being Isolated on a Daemonic feral world. Raiding for equipment and slaves from Imperial forces.
So anyway are the Wordbearers present in the maelstrom?
What about the rest of em? The Black Legion and the cult specific CSM chapters.
Thanks 4 your time. cya.
Needless to say I probably can't tell you what it says happens if you hit someone in the groin with a powerfist here on LO.
Well, the Maelstrom has always been depicted as a no-go zone for Imps, as might be expected.
Usually the forces within have been mentioned as rogue Imps, plus a few chaos legions (like the Red Corsairs and the Son's of Malice Marine Legions). There's no reason why the WB's couldn't be there.
even better, a large part of the WB's fled here after the heresy, that's official fluff...
there are also quite a lot of alpha legion.
I can imagine that there might be representatives or small warbands of the other legions there as well :yes:
You have to be careful about wikipedia, anyone can put stuff on there and quite often people will put wrong things on there for kicks, and other times stupid fans of things who have no idea about them will put in what they think is true, which quite often isn't.
And also, I wonder if GW is going to come out with a 4th Ed version of Index Astartes, because as it is now I won't get them because quite a bit of the fluff has been altered slightly (not to mention it would be a hundred dollar investment and that I can't find anywhere to buy them). But they remain amazing repositories of C/SM knowledge...

After the Horus Heresy a massive contingent of Word Bearers did indeed flee to the Maelstrom. They were the ones that attacked the Ultramarines on Calth under the command of Kor Phaeron, Master of the Faith. Their base of operations is the corrupted forge world of Ghalmek and they are widely considered to be the most organized and cohesive military force inside the Maelstrom (which is no small feat, considering the numerous Ork empires, Hrud warrens, and pirate bands of various sizes and makeups, including numerous traitor Marine chapters).
I believe Huron Blackheart and the Red Corsairs make their base inside the Maelstrom as well as the Violators, a chapter dedicated to Slaanesh.
