Does anyone know exactly when the Grey Knight Chapter 666 (the Chamber Militant of the Ordo Malleus) was founded? There is a hint in the Daemonhunters Codex that it was formed during the Great Crusade or shortly after (this seems likely as in TFOTE HH series book, Malcador the Sigilite of Terra invites Nathaniel Garro and Iacton Qruze to set up the Inquisition).

It could have been just after the heresy or after the scouring which lasted many decades. It certainly seems more likely to have occured afterwards, considering the sad state the imperium was in at the time...

The exact date has yet to be revealed. However the latest Codex: Space Marines gives a tantalising possibility-especially to all of us Pre-Heresy enthusiasts:

QUOTE (Codex: Space Marines @ Page 41)
The history of the Grey Knights' inception is not a matter of record and even their inclusion in the Second Founding is debatable. There are hints in the Adeptus Terra's vaults that the Chapter was actually created by the Emperor in secret, somtime during the Great Crusade.


So maybe during the Great Crusade...we shall have to wait and see what happens in the novels. wink.gif ninja.gif

I would think that as chapter 666 they would be maybe fourth founding or later? The second founding would have made 20-30 new chapters plus the legion chapters, as there was a distinct lack of Marines after the wars. That high founding number makes me believe that they are relatively new compared to many chapters, especially as they are a chapter only and not a legion, as even the Custodes were considered a legion. Although I could be mistaken, the Inquisition/Emperor may have been like "f*** it, I'm skipping a bunch of numbers to make it sound Old Terra superstitious-y."

We know that numbers are not always assigned chronologically to Chapters, and that numbers may be re-used when a Chapter is destroyed.

The Custodes were not considered a Legion.

Thank you guys. I was thinking about a Pre-Heresy Grey Knights Army, but I wasn't sure about the date that they were founded.

Probably Dave Taylor's sexy Custodes. I looked around the various GW sites but I think the last of them is finally down thanks to their "improvements". So much beautiful material erased... sad.gif
