In the Warhammer 40,000 setting, the Judged are a collection of thirty Space Marine chapters that were sent into the Eye of Terror on the Abyssal Crusade. Of these, many turned to Chaos worship, including the Iron Drakes that converted to the worship of Nurgle and became the Grey Death.
Members of the Grey Death include: Brother Gluttmar. Other warbands connected to the Judged include the Deathmongers, Lords of Decay, the Flylords, Talons of Anathrax, Vectors of Pox.
Warpstorm Dionys ripples across the galaxy, its ghastly energies polluting a wide swathe of star systems. In addition to billions of Imperial citizens, no less than thirty Space Marine Chapters are judged by the charismatic Saint Basillius to be tainted. The Ecclesiarchal lord gives a choice to those so judged - seek redemption in the Eye of Terror or be exterminated. Without exception, the Judged Chapters choose to embark upon a redemptive crusade aimed at purging the Daemon worlds of the Eye of Terror. Within that great Warp rift, some of the Chapters are lost forever or destroyed, and a few turn renegade in order to survive. The most resolute return to the Imperium nearly 800 years later, and discover that their accuser, Saint Basillius himself, is a servant of Chaos. The corrupted saint's demise is swift and bloody.

Brother Gluttmar, Bringer of the Seven Fungal Forests
After the Death Guard crippled their fleet, the Iron Drakes Chapter became marooned on the plague world of Anathrax in the Eye of Terror. For over a century, Plague Marines harried the stranded loyalists, always aiming to debilitate their targets and damage their wargear rather than slay them. The last time the Iron Drakes were sighted in the Imperium, they fought under the name of the Grey Death, and their new loyalties were plain to all.
