Introduction

The Maccabees are not organized according to the Codex Astartes. Their organization resembles the Space Wolves in that they are broken into twelve Hosts and an Inner Circle, each (excepting the Inner Circle) with a province of the Levantine Realm under their protection. While Imperial governors are the rule, the Maccabees remain involved in the lives of the people acting as judges, religious teachers and military protectors.

Founding

In the aftermath of the Horus Heresy, the Dark Angels Legion was broken into chapters. Most became the Unforgiven, but to one of his sons the Lion gave the full revelation of of the Truth and bid him to continue the original mission of the Dark Angels - that Chapter, those Guardians of the Covenant, became the Maccabees Chapter Badge

The Colors of the Chapter are Blue and White, with a Star of David as the Chapter Badge. The Star is emblazoned on their vehicles, aircraft and forms a part of the markings of their allies, particularly the Guard regiments raised on the worlds they rule.

Armor

Their armor is white with the chapter badge on the left shoulder and the tactical marks on the right, with shoulder pad trim in the company color. Guardian veterans wear blue helmets. They are a member of the Astartes Mizrai, based in the Eastern Fringe near Satyressia Maelstrom. They are the arch-enemies of the Jieshi Is'Malal

They participated in the Gothic War, the 3rd War for Armageddon, the defense against the 13th Black Crusade and the Final Defense of Medusa V.
