    Those are not Chaos units. They are units for the Horus Heresy.

      Polar Bear was probably thrown by the “Despoiler” designation, but this was back when the Imperial Fists were still fielding Sodomizer squads and the Blood Angels were fighting their own private war against the Crip Angels.

        Gawd, what kind of lore expert are you anyway?

        How dare you comment without memorizing all Black Library books ever released?

        • Soulfinger

          Nothing is canonical beyond the Rogue Trader era releases, but the IF Sodomizer squads are from Black Library’s “To Fist or Not to Fist,” which is part 2 of the Imperial Fists omnibus, between “Fisto Bends to No Man” and “Yellow Paint, Black Primer.” They are a specialist unit fielded alongside Imperial Guard Penal Units against the Emperor’s Children during the Horus Heresy. They wield customized power mauls, called Violators (no relation to the Depeche Mode album) and specialize in close combat attacks from the rear.

          • I think they are called “Soul Fists”…

          • Soulfinger

            Nah. The Soulfinger SM Chapter is something entirely different — although they are a successor chapter of the Imperial Fists. They all cut off their middle fingers to show their dedication to the Emperor, whose divine-esque light manifests in place of the severed digit whenever they hold up their fists to the enemy. A defect in their geneseed does not allow them to neutralize poison, as per the cleric spell, so they are the only chapter able to get drunk, which they frequently are. They sometimes eschew their traditional power armor in favor of Mk.1 Thunder Armor modeled after KISS and ride pimped out, low rider Rhinos that bear a striking resemblance to El Caminos. They are the only chapter approved to get busy with the Sisters of Battle. Also, they don’t have space ships. They just walk everywhere.

            There is no sex in the dark future. You should know that by now.

            And girls are xenos. Because nobody advances beyond the age of 7 mentally.
