The reavers of Isstvan







The black and crimson clad Astartes that came to be known as the Reavers of Isstvan were once proud Legionnaires of the Iron hands, Ravenguard, Salamamders and Luna Wolves legions. During the purging Fires of Isstvan when the traitor Horus nearly crushed 3 loyal legions in their entirety, there was pure anarchy that followed. Several detachments of loyalists became separated from the main withdrawal and while most were slaughtered, one particular cohort of no More than 100 legionnaires from all three loyalist legions managed to make good their escape under the leadership of a Centurion bearing the charcoal black and insignia of the Iron Hands, but glazed in the crimson red of the traitors blood. He was known as Centurion krago Sentorax

After a short but brutal shadow campaign of hit and run warfare this company of irregulars managed to reach orbit by way of supply vessles. The loyalists killed the unsuspecting guards and took the supply Barges, managing to break orbit by using the traitor IFF transponders already used by the supply Barges.

After their escape from Isstvan 5 the rag tag company stowed away on a strike cruiser that was relatively undermanned, with most of the traitor forces still planet side hunting down surviving loyalists. Using stealth and surprise to their advantage the loyalists managed to take the ship and escape the system.

Once outside of the system Krago realized all other loyalists had long escaped, their lone wolf operations taking much longer than realized. Sentorax looked upon his company of remnants, and realized all they had was each other. They had been betrayed by their warmaster, betrayed by their brother legions at the Urgall depression and now abandoned by their own legions and left to die. So from this point on the survivors donned a new, damning paint scheme. Repainting their Armour charcoal black and tinging it red, to show the blood spilt between brothers. It was back into the hellfire of the Isstvan system the newly formed band of black shields would head, re born as the Iron 10th, taking the name from Sentorax's old company which most survivors had come from, and the fact that they were wrought as iron with betrayal with war as their anvil.

Using the captured strike cruisers sons of Horus markings and IFF they were able to make many hit and run attacks on traitor Forces and steal More ships and wargear before the vessel was marked as being hijacked. By the end of the Isstvan raiding's the Iron 10th had secured 19 More vessels. While only 4 were cruiser class with the rest being a mixture of escorts and heavy destroyers, it was still a fierce force of fast raiding ships whose black and crimson hulls were feared, for they brought brutal death and destruction on all who witnessed them.

With enough ships and resources to leave the Isstvan system the Iron 10th fled at the head of the warmasters Forces now pushing out into the imperium. The blackshields would raid and pillage the warmasters fleets and Forces as they spread across the imperium. Eventually finding More abandoned Astartes who would join their cause, some loyal some traitor. It mattered not once their Armour bore the black and red of the Iron 10th.
