The Word Bearers are a chapter of the Chaos Space Marines in Eternal Crusade.
The first of the traitor Legions to turn to Chaos, the Word Bearers corrupted the Warmaster Horus and brought about the terrible civil war of the Horus Heresy. Today, these fanatics work to spread the truth of Chaos throughout the galaxy.
The Word Bearers are zealots that venerate each one of the Chaotic pantheon with manic fervour, rebuilding the worlds they conquer into nightmare places of worship dedicated to suffering and slaughter. They are well known for their Dark Apostles, the twisted priests of the Ruinous Powers.
