Traitors Involved In The Conflict
The Initial Battle Of Hyperborea:
The Battle for Hyperborea drew in many legions from outlying sectors who all wished to have a monopoly over Hyperborea’s artefacts. The Traitor forces consisted of Thousand Sons, Dark Angels, World Eaters, Sons of Horus, Alpha Legion and Dark Mechanicum. The Loyalist forces included Space Wolves, Imperial Fists, Emperors Children, Dark Angels and Legio Custodes.
After the initial landings of both the Loyalist and Traitor forces, small skirmish battles around the capital city were fought between scouting armies. The skirmish battles were relatively unsuccessful as little ground was gained by either side, ending the first engagement in a stalemate. The lack of information collected about Hyperborea would prove to be detrimental for either sides campaign. As little knowledge was gathered on the local flora, neither side expected to face carnivorous plants the size of a Primarch. Each plant was capable of eating half a dozen Astartes with ease, which was demonstrated on many occasions. The discovery of such plants sabotaged strategical manoeuvres and forced commanders to change battle plans. While two opposite aligned Dark Angel armies battled one another, the loyalist force led by 13th Company Captain Telemachus, encountered a carnivorous plant just moments before they were going to deal the final blow to the separatists, ensuring a loyalist victory. However, the plant proved deadly as the loyalists were trapped combatting the creature long enough for the separatists to sneak past.
The ongoing battle on Hyperborea lured mercenaries seeking fortune to the planet, running rampant among the various battlefields, hindering and helping both forces. Multiple Assassins were sent after several high-ranking Astartes, failing on all occasions. Simultaneously, Ogroid mercs lending their services to both forces, changed the narrative of numerous battles. The most notable of mercenaries found on Hyperborea were the Knights of House Cattus, who were rescued by Dark Angel Paladin Ferrando of Luther’s Seperatists. The Knight House proved to be valuable allies throughout the campaign, leading the Dark Angel separatists to many victories on the battlefield.
Several High command officer
Each battle was bloody and ferocious, swarms of infantry slamming into one another, dreadnoughts crashing into tanks, and warlords duelling atop bodies of fallen brothers. Sigismund, 1st Captain of the Imperial Fists, was tasked with holding off a World Eater onslaught. Sigismund and his Templar brethren fought valiantly, slaying traitor after traitor. The endless swarm of World Eaters inductii proved no match for the Templar, slaughtering 120 frenzied Astartes. On the opposite end of the capital, it was Wolf vs Wolf. Warden Domeric Costayne of the Luna Wolves halted the advance of Einvar the Iron Wolf’s Vylka Fenryka. It was the battle that would decide who truly deserved to be named after the wild beast. The Luna Wolves Warden had the advantage of hiring a Questoris Company and tasked them with guarding the flank. However, the band of treasure hunting mercenaries discovered an archeotech vault and betrayed their allies for greed. The Iron Wolf using this opening to his advantage, took the flank with the help of an enraged Contemptor Dreadnought. Even with a weakened flank, Domeric fought on hard and both sides were wittled down to only a handful of Astartes. At the last moment, Einvar was able to make his way to the vault with his honour guard and slay the Questoris Company, acquiring the archeotech for the loyalists.
With this victory, the Traitors would go on to possess the highest amount of Hyperborea’s artefacts, and the Loyalists broken with the defeat of their Paragons, withdrew from all battlefields.
