Renegade Militia are Imperial Guard or PDF soldiers who have forsaken the Emperor and cast their lot with the dark and unknowable powers of Chaos. Although some actively worship the Dark Gods, most are more akin to madmen who have surrendered to bloodlust and evil, roaming from battlefield to battlefield.
The Renegades encountered in Space Marine are equipped with grenades and lasguns. They are relatively easy to kill, able to take little more than one or two hits from a Bolter, swept up en-masse with any Astartes melee weapon, and can be Executed without having to be stunned first. They serve mainly as cannon fodder, but be wary of their grenades, which are easy to evade but can deal significant damage if not avoided. Additionally, while a single lasgun won't do much damage, if several Renegades can get a clear line of sight, sustained fire from an entire Renegade squad's massed lasguns can cause a lot of damage to a Space Marine's armour. From Chapter 15 onwards, some Renegades summon Bloodletters upon their death.
