Global Heresy: Waacos System

From Australis Ultima 30k
Jump to: navigation, search

The first region of the Centrumeh Sub-Sector to feel the Traitors' fury in the birth years of the Horus Heresy was the Waacos System. The System was, at the time, famed for both its industrial output, extensive Hive complexes and its massive space borne shipyard; Gospel. Due to this the system had proven a key factor in the supply and expansion of the Imperium, both across the Centrumeh Sub-Sector and the central part of the Australis Ultima Sector. These factors made it a prime target for attack, as the warp route access through the star system -known to many Navigators- was still yet clear of turbulence, making it a welcome avenue of escape by fleeing Loyalist forces retreating from the catastrophe at Istvaan as well as reinforcements sent from Terra and other Loyalist strongholds.
