Despite their long and storied past, today there are two distinct historical eras that define the Lamenters Chapter: before the Badab War and after. As a consequence of their rebellion the chapter was sentenced to a 100-year penitent crusade, without the ability to take in and train new neophytes. The Lamenters will feel the loss of each battle brother for the duration of their punishment. The chapter, although respectful of the Codex Astartes, must now forge a new path that will allow them to adapt to this arduous road and endure their atonement.
