The Iron Warriors made planetfall in the wake of a saturation bombardment that reduced the valley where the Cadmean Citadel was situated and the agri-settlements filling its fertile deltas to ash. Magma bombs and mass drivers boiled away the rivers and reduced fecund earth to arid dust. The Cadmean Citadel was left untouched, and Cassander still found it difficult to believe that such a precise bombardment was possible.
But the Iron Warriors had purposely done this in order to show the Imperial Fists that they were superior to them in every way. The technological cunning of the ancient fortress builders, married to the artfully wrought geography and the courage of the defenders, proceeded to keep the Iron Warriors at bay for almost three months. They would slaughter the remaining Imperial Fists Legionaries, the heroic men and women of Hyrdra Cordatus that had chosen to stand with them, and the refugees from the devastated fields below the fortress.
Ten millennia later, the world of Hydra Cordatus would once again see the Iron Warriors assaulting the now isolated, barren planet. Sometime during the 13th Black Crusade in The Imperial Fists had always been the most hated foes of the Iron Warriors since the days of the Horus Heresy but the Iron Warriors needed fresh Astartes gene-seed to grow their numbers since the power of Chaos tended to mutate their own gene-seed to the point that it was unusable to create new Chaos Space Marines.
Yet, in the end, the Iron Warriors defeated the Imperial and Adeptus Mechanicus forces defending the Tor as well as an entire company of Imperial Fists Astartes who had arrived as reinforcements to try and prevent the theft of their genetic legacy. When the battle was won, the commanding Warsmith, having greatly pleased the Chaos Gods through his victory, was granted his final apotheosis of daemonhood and left for the Eye of Terror. Only a lone Imperial Guardsman survived the brutal onlsaught.
He was found by an Imperial Fists relief force and taken from the blasted surface of Hydra Cordatus. Warhammer 40k Wiki Explore. Imperium of Man. Adepta Sororitas Important Links.

Three new units and accompanying mini campaigns in as many months?
The Warmaster is truly smiling on us! Honestly, the way this story is told it almost seems like it should be the other way around, a sinister fortress powered by the cruel intellect of the Dark Mechanicum. Once more we see a traitor captain rising about his station only to be brought low by those he called allies, but overall this is the most enjoyable of the three exemplary battles to read so far. The campaign itself is interesting, with the first scenario, the Iron Tide, being played up to three times on three different maps before moving on, representing the different fields of battle where the Iron Warriors threw waves of their own soldiers at the defenders for little gain.
Bottom line up front, this is a unit of Cataphractii terminators all armed with combi-bolters and thunder hammers, which is pretty neat, WS5, Stubbornness and a Hatred for models with the Cybernetica Cortex special rule. Is points worth all that?
Yes, they can re-roll misses in the first round of combat, but Preferred Enemy grants them re-rolls of 1 to hit and wound all the time. Part of the issue here is the plethora of rules that do very similar things; hopefully kindred rules like Hatred, Preferred Enemy and Zealot can be cleaned up a little going forward.

Part of the issue here is the plethora of rules that do very similar things; hopefully kindred rules like Hatred, Preferred Enemy and Zealot can be cleaned up a little going forward. Just like the Atramentar and Huscarls the Dominators get a unique bodyguard special rule. Three exemplary battles down, and who knows how many to go?

Robert "TheChirurgeon" Jones - December 15, Core Games Other Games Warhammer 30k. Updated: February 18, By Magos Sockbert. November 8, Previous article Content We Liked: November 7, Fleeing from the battle, Captain Ventris chased after Honsou and shot him in the back of the head with his Bolter. After their departure, by some dark miracle, Honsou managed to survive the near-fatal wound.
The wounded Warsmith then discovered the Heart of Blood, thoroughly exhausted from its battle with a daemonic rival, and collapsed upon the floor of the ruined citadel. The Warsmith Honsou displaying his necrodermis arm. Though Honsou had emerged as the victor in the brutal conflict between the Iron Warriors Warsmiths, it was a pyrrhic victory at best. Most of his forces has been smashed by the two rival Warsmiths and their armies during the internecine war. Despite the losses to his troops and the destruction of the Daemonculaba, Honsou began the task of rebuilding his forces.
His personal retinue also changed to include Cadaras Grendal, a particularly murderous Iron Warrior who had previously served under Berossus, and the loathsome but powerful Warp-creature known as the Newborn -- who was genetically cloned from the genetic material of Uriel Ventris by the Daemonculaba before their destruction. The recent destruction of Khalan-Ghol on Medrengard made the Warsmith seethe with rage at the bitter defeat by the hands of Uriel Ventris.
Honsou plotted his vengeance against the upstart Ultramarines captain and his Chapter. Honsou knew he would not be satisfied until he had inflicted the most wretched humiliations on the one enemy who had escaped him. Vast quantities of the experimental Heraclitus viral strain were released into the atmosphere. The world of Tarsis Ultra had suffered the horror of invasion by the monstrous swarms of the Tyranids.
From pole to pole, horrific spires of dreadful alien vegetable matter towered over the landscape, slowly choking the life from the natural landscape. The alien flora had subsumed entire continents, a rapacious instinct to devour encoded in every strand of its genetic structure. Nutrients were leeched from the soil and used to create hyper-fertile spore growths that drifted on the heated currents of the air to seed new regions and pollute yet more land. The bio-toxins were intended to increase the growth rate of crops on Agri-worlds , and were designed to increase the productivity of such worlds a thousand-fold.
Overwhelmed by mutant growths, poisonous plant life expanded whole kilometres in seconds as the virulent growth strain sent its metabolism into overdrive. Huge amounts of nutrients were sucked from the ground and released as enormous quantities of heat, raising the ambient temperature of the world in a matter of moments.
This was not the rapid death of Exterminatus , but ecological death of global proportions. Solar months after the launch of the Heraclitus missiles, nothing remained alive, the deadly alien vegetation killed by lethal levels of radiation and the frigid cold that gripped the planet without its protective atmosphere. All that now remained of the planet was a dead, lifeless ball of rock, its surface seared and barren, with only the skeletal remains of its blackened cities left as evidence that human beings had once lived upon it.
After the death of Tarsis Ultra, Magos Locard of the Adeptus Mechanicus and members of the Skitarii landed upon the dead planet, attempting to investigate what occurred. Following a lone beacon, the Explorator team found a lone battered orbital torpedo.
Removing the payload bay of the torpedo, the Magos reached inside and removed its contents -- a cracked helmet, the paint chipped and one eye lens missing. The helmet was a deep blue and bore the badge of the Ultramarines Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes. In order to rebuild his forces, Honsou travelled to the Badab Sector, the site of the infamous Badab War , to the heart of the Warp rift called the Maelstrom.
Within the heart of this hellish realm lay New Badab, the homeworld of Huron Blackheart , the infamous Tyrant of Badab and now the leader of the Red Corsairs. Honsou attended the Skull Harvest, a contest hosted by Blackheart between Chaos warbands where Chaos Champions vyed with one another for supreme dominance, until only one victor emerges.
The Skull Harvest took place within the Arena of Thorns, the large venue that hosted the murderous contest; the decapitated heads of the fallen were mounted and displayed upon spikes. Honsou was determined to win the murderous contest at any cost, for he possessed a grand vision of revenge. Scores of armoured units and fighting machines, as well as all manner of xenos and corsair troops were now his to command.
The swords of seventeen warbands now belonged to Honsou and, by any measure of reckoning, he had a fearsome force with which to wreak havoc on his enemies. As the fourth day of killing drew to an end only the armies of three Champions remained. On the final day of the Skull Harvest, the three warriors stepped into the arena, clad in their armour and each armed with their weapon of choice.
This stage of the battle would be where each warrior sought to gauge the measure of the other, searching for signs of weakness or fear to be exploited. Honsou knew he would find neither in these two opponents, warriors hardened by decades of war and devotion to their Gods. Honsou cared nothing for the thrill of the fight, nor the honour of the kill. This entire endeavour was a means to a single end. The Slaaneshi Champion was quickly bested, and Honsou then faced the berserk Uluvent.
Weaponless and bleeding out quickly, the Khornate Champion called for another weapon to finish the duel between himself and the Warsmith. Honsou emerged as the sole victor of the Skull Harvest. At the final tally, Honsou left New Badab with close to 17, Chaos warriors sworn in blood to his cause. The Slaaneshi Champion Notha Etassay survived the final battle and then willingly swore allegiance to Honsou. With his army assembled, Honsou was finally ready to unleash his audacious plan for revenge against Uriel Ventris by completely destroying the Realm of Ultramar.
The Daemon Prince then possessed the armoured Dreadnought chassis of Brother Altarion, an Ultramarines Astartes assigned to guard the fort. Each subordinate commander was then assigned a different strategic target. Armed with the knowledge of Ventris, the clone known as the Newborn were able to find the location of the subterranean tomb within the Cavernas Draconi on Calth.
Therefore, the Warsmith decided to investigate further and soon discovered that there was an artefact, a Combat Knife , buried with the long-dead Ultramarine Captain that was known as the Shard of Erebus. Honsou realised that the simple blade was capable of badly harming the Daemon Prince because of the faith that had been invested within it after so many millennia of devotion.
Honsou tasked the Newborn to kill Ventris, but in the ensuing battle the Ultramarines captain was able to defeat his corrupted clone.
