Space Marine Chaplains are the spiritual leaders of the Space Marine Chapters.
As warrior-priests, they fight alongside their battle-brothers, chanting the sacred creeds of the order and inspiring their brethren to even greater heroic deeds. They appear to enemies as fearsome and sinister figures clad in black power armor and skull-faced helmets.
Each chapter has its own unique cult, often thousands of years old. Since these cults often predate the rise of the ecclesiarchy, the Order's cults are not simply facets of the common imperial cult. While the Ecclesiarchy and its lay followers revere the Emperor of mankind as a deity, several religious cults regard him merely as a brilliant and inspiring man, albeit with no less reverence. As with all things, this view of the emperor's divinity, or lack thereof, varies from chapter to chapter. The Primarch of the Order is also an important part of the Order's specific cult, revered in the same way as the Emperor.
A formal sign of the Entente between the Ecclesiarchy and the Space Marines is the rosarius, a sacred symbol in the form of a necklace, amulet, or brooch, often displaying the imperial eagle or the crux terminatus, or other forms appropriate to the particular devotional qualities of the individual chapters (e.g. the Space Wolves and their wolf iconography). This blessing, bestowed upon Space Marine ministers by the Ecclesiarchy, represents the brotherhood of the Imperial faith and formally marks the continuation of religious unity between the two groups. In practice, however, the link between the organizations remains rather weak.
Zeal just got faster. Every Space Marines player knows the value of a Chaplain, empowering nearby troops with a range of powerful abilities - but how do you keep up with the fastest elements of your army? Simple - you grab one of these guys. Part tactical pivot, part ceramic-clad Comet of Righteous Fury, the Primaris Chaplain on Bike is the ideal companion for your Outriders or advancing units like Incursors.
