Ice Raptors of Thorus

Abandoned on the frozen world of Thorus after a warp storm swallowed the planetary body whole, the remnants of a small force of Ultramarines and the native population were forgotten.

500 years later, the warp releases it's grip on the cursed world and it's inhabitants. Along with the reappearance of Thorus, strange phenomenon have begun to take place in neighboring sectors... Reports of ghosts appearing in the midst of battle to aid those in need; Xenos attack parties butchered in an instant by unseen forces; Dozens of Astartes vehicles disappearing without a trace.

Indeed, the Space Marines that were trapped on Thorus's surface are changed men... for 500 years in real space could have been thousands of years in the warp.

The Ice Raptors appear as phantoms, striking quickly against the enemies of the Emperor with weapons and tactics previously unseen. The Ice Raptors disappear as quickly as they arrive.

Despite their faith in the Emperor, Terra has deemed the Ice Raptors of Thorus to be too tainted by the warp to be trusted and are thus ordered to be exterminated on sight. Battle reports show that Imperial skirmishes with the Ice Raptors are short lived and insubstantial. Any force that the Ice Raptors use against Imperial forces are non-lethal, typically leaving a unit of lightly injured and confused men and a lot of broken/missing equipment.

Visual reports state that the Ice Raptors don power armor that shimmers with a ghostly blue. Their skin appears to be dark brown and thick, more akin to the primal inhabitants of Thorus, then the pale skin tones of Ultramar. Their eyes also appear to glow a fiery orange in the dark... this further adds to their ghostly appearance.
